However I would rather pay the extra money for a trip to Oakland and watching
a home game in the Coliseum than paying less for Vegas. Why? I think vegas is a bad idea.
Alot of people who never been to a Raiders home game don't care if they leave, they look at
vegas as a cheaper trip and easier as well with flights etc and alot more to do in a weekend
in Sin City. Yes true. But that also includes THOUSANDS of other fans especially opponents fans.
This is the number one thing I hate about the Raiders being FORCED to relocate - the home field advantage will NEVER be the same again. The new site will be TOO welcoming. It's all but assured that will be the case.
However, I believe that the primary reason there weren't more opposing fans at the HOT wasn't the "intimidation factor", but rather the fact that the Coliseum was a total shithole.
I think that a new building in Oakland would have attracted more opposing fans too. Maybe not as much as the Vegas site but more nonetheless.
I live in Phoenix, and have as long as I've been a Raider fan, so this won't impact me personally s much as many of youlocals. I feel worst for the LA fans who are now stuck with TWO teams, neither of which is the Raiders.
Oakland sucks for letting them go and they will surely regret it.
Forced? Something tells me Mark Davis will be smiling come Monday night.
San Diego and Oakland ain't a gonna put public funding into Stadiums.Period.
Sucks for Oakland fans . But Davis had to do what's best for the Raider organization. Playing on that broken down dump isn't going to work in 2017
