Raiders’ Move To Las Vegas Looks Like A Certain Bet
By SF Chronicle,March 25, 2017
On Feb. 11, 2016, Raiders owner Mark Davis and Oakland city officials got together at Oracle Arena and smiled in front of all the TV cameras. They agreed to a one-year lease extension at the Coliseum and pledged to work together to build a permanent facility for the football team.
They haven’t met since.
And now Davis, frustrated at the lack of progress toward getting a new stadium in Oakland and city officials’ vows not to spend taxpayer money to get one, is locked in on a move to Las Vegas.
