Las Vegas Raiders Approved; Raiders Relocating To Sin City

The Las Vegas Raiders have been approved.

On Monday afternoon, NFL owners approved the move of the team from Oakland to the Sin City. The vote was near unanimous, with just one team voting against the relocation.

The final vote was 31-1, with the Miami Dolphins serving as the only holdout.

Initially, the Chicago Bears also voted against the move, but the franchise ultimately decided to go with the majority. Despite the move being approved, the Raiders will remain in Oakland for at least the 2017-18 NFL season and potentially the following year.

The move will not take place until stadium construction is completed.

You can expect plenty of boos and high tensions at The Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum in the meantime. And let’s hope they get a little more creative with their logo — should they decide to change — than the Los Angeles Chargers.
