    New Stadiums and Relocation thread

    Gonna be a hot topic over the next few months with the Chargers, Raiders and Rams all hoping to move to LA.

    Proposed stadium in Carson would be shared by the Chargers and the Raiders. Looks pretty sweet and it shoots out lightning bolts.

    New Chargers stadium will have a tower that SHOOTS LIGHTNING BOLTS - SBNation.com

    Getting pretty rustled reading about the Rams old owner. Way she treated the fans was so shit, fuck her.

    Also a potential if the Chargers and Raiders move to La would be conference realignment. Doubt there would be 2 LA teams in the AFC West, Seahawks would probs have to move

    Oakland Raiders file Las Vegas relocation paperwork - NFL.com

    The Raiders have filed their relocation paperwork with the NFL to move from Oakland to Las Vegas, the league announced in a statement Thursday.

    "Today, the Oakland Raiders submitted an application to relocate their franchise to Las Vegas, as is provided for under the NFL Policy and Procedures for Proposed Franchise Relocations," the statement read.

    "The application will be reviewed in the coming weeks by league staff and the Stadium and Finance Committees. The relocation of a franchise requires the affirmative vote of three-quarters of the NFL clubs."

    Raiders secure financing for potential Las Vegas stadium - NFL.com

    The Oakland Raiders made another move Monday toward a possible relocation to Las Vegas.

    The team informed the NFL that they have secured financing from Bank of America for their potential Las Vegas stadium, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the situation.

    The Los Angeles Daily News was first to report the story.

    The news comes just several weeks after casino mogul Sheldon Adelson and later Goldman Sachs had pulled out of a plan to build a $1.9 billion domed stadium in Las Vegas. Adelson had pledged $650 million and the Raiders $500 million, with the stadium authority putting up $750 million in Las Vegas tax revenues.

    "The Raiders got some huge news today -- news that Raiders president Mark Badain communicated to the league's finance committee and that is that they now have funding for their $1.9 billion stadium," Rapoport reported. "They have secured financing from Bank of America, replacing Sheldon Adelson, who had previously, of course and very famously, been in charge of financing and helping fund his big-time Raiders stadium. And this has always, pretty quietly, been the confidence point for the Raiders over the past couple weeks.

    "While everyone doubted them and basically wrote off Vegas when Sheldon Adelson bailed, they thought there would be several options of banks with the initiative and wanting to finance them. They have now found that Bank of America is one of them and they still hope to have a vote on going to Vegas this spring. Maybe at the March meetings, maybe a couple months later at the league meetings in May."

    NFL owners approve Raiders' move to Las Vegas - NFL.com

    The Raiders are leaving Oakland again, this time for the neon lights of Las Vegas.

    In a decision that would have been hard to fathom not so long ago, NFL owners voted 31-1 on Monday at the Annual League Meeting to approve the Raiders' proposal to relocate to Las Vegas.

    The decision comes after years of fruitless efforts by Raiders owner Mark Davis to build a viable stadium in Oakland. The failure to do so, which goes back to Davis' late father Al Davis' stewardship of the team, led to exploring stadium options in Los Angeles and eventually Las Vegas, where Nevada lawmakers approved $750 million in public funding for a new stadium. The Autumn Wind will no longer blow through Raiders games as the team is expected to move into a planned $1.7 billion domed stadium in Las Vegas.

    In what is sure to be an awkward process, the Raiders won't be moving immediately. The new stadium in Las Vegas is not expected to be ready until 2020. The Raiders plan to play at the Oakland Coliseum in 2017 and 2018, Davis said in a statement. Davis also expressed openness to staying in Oakland in 2019, although NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league would look into potential venues for 2019. In the meantime, the Raiders will remain the Oakland Raiders.

    "My father always said, 'the greatness of the Raiders is in its future,' and the opportunity to build a world-class stadium in the entertainment capital of the world is a significant step toward achieving that greatness," Davis said.

    This is a surreal moment involving one of the NFL's most iconic franchises, although NFL teams changing cities is sadly becoming routine. The news caps a frenetic 14-month stretch during which three teams announced plans for relocation. The Rams moved from St. Louis back to Los Angeles last year and the Chargers announced their decision to move from San Diego to L.A. in January. Goodell said last week on MMQB Peter King's podcast that leaving Oakland would be "painful."

    The pain of not maximizing stadium revenues is perhaps a bigger issue within league circles. The Chargers left San Diego after 57 years because they couldn't solve their stadium dilemma. The Raiders are deserting Oakland for the desert for the same reason.

    "The Raiders were born in Oakland and Oakland will always be part of our DNA," Davis said Monday. "We know that some fans will be disappointed and even angry, but we hope that they do not direct that frustration to the players, coaches and staff. We plan to play at the Coliseum in 2017 and 2018, and hope to stay there as the Oakland Raiders until the new stadium opens. We would love nothing more than to bring a championship back to the Bay Area."
    Vegas Raiders is go.

    So weird that they will be in Oakland for another 2-3 years. Will be interesting to see if they still get support. Luckily they should have a good team so that will help.
