You don't enjoy watching the Raiders flail and bumble around in some misguided journey?

Plus if they do end up at Santa Clara for next season, it could effect our division rivals.

It is going to be interesting to see how that changes over the next few years.

I'm thinking that the Raiders games are going to be half full of the other team's fans. I mean who wouldn't want to go to VEGAS to watch their team?

It’s going to look and sound like the Rams last few seasons in St. Louis when up to half the crowd was visitors.

At least the NHL was smart and gave the Las Vegas Golden Knights an amazing expansion draft to ensure the team won and solidified the home fan base.

Plus I’m not sure about that Raiders stadium site on the other side of the interstate. People are lazy and won’t want to make that walk from the Strip.

What? Why would they be walking?

Unless I’m just in the mood for a walk, I wouldn’t walk to anywhere on the strip -no need.

The stadium is down by Luxor - it’s not actually that far away. Saw it when I was there last month - it’s progressing.

From other Strip hotels. How many people fly to Vegas and then rent a car? Yes I know there are taxis but that's just a disaster before and after football games in other cities like Chicago.

Supposedly before Golden Knights games there are people walking from all over down to the hockey game since the T Mobile arena is nestled right by all the other casinos. If you've tried to walk to/from the other side of the interstate (for example the In n Out Burger on Tropicana) you'd understand.

Hopefully they'll build a pedestrian bridge from Mandalay Bay over to the Mark Davis Dome.

very very very true ... on the other hand ... there are a significant amount of Raider fans all around the country ... what Raiders fan wouldn't want to go to VEGAS to watch their team? and you can't forget that there are still a LOT of Raider fans still in Los Angeles that will be a few hours away

Hotels, casinos, corporations, and businesses will have a plethera of season tickets for "hospitality" and "perks" for their clients. A lot of "high rollers" will be given tickets that aren't fans of either team. ... errrr they will be fans of whatever team is having the best season at the time.

Correct, they used to be a successful, well run franchise.

Speaking of logistics in Las Vegas, I'm sure they will have something like the monorail to get people from the strip and/or downtown out to the stadium.
