Draymond Green backs Oakland in Raiders relocation: "I won't attend a game"

They plan to move to their new Las Vegas stadium by 2020.

The Los Angeles Daily News reports, "Closed out of Los Angeles and with nothing viable to turn back to in Oakland - a reality that remains to this day - there was uncertainty in the air for the Raiders".

For the second time the Oakland Raiders, a team born in the East Bay, has jumped ship for greener pastures.

"I feel bad for the city of Oakland, man".

There is precedent for this with the Raiders, who relocated from Oakland to Los Angeles in 1982.

"I believe when you own a team you're a steward for the city", Ross said. Will Raiders fans in Oakland still support the team?

They'll play in the Oakland Coliseum in 2017 and will continue to practice at the team's facility in Alameda, Calif., owner Mark Davis said Monday after National Football League owners approved the kick in the backside to Raiders fans by a 31-1 vote.

After last night's win against the Rockets, Draymond spoke more about how saddened he is for the fan base and compared the Raiders leaving Oakland to the Cowboys moving away from Dallas, or the Celtics ditching Boston. He's right. I will also point out that that happened when they become good just past year. "That's ridiculous. No way I would pay my way to attend a game".

Basically, if the city of Oakland turns into a jilted lover and kicks the team out, it sounds like the Raiders will have a friend on speed dial who they can stay with until they can move to Vegas.

However, others say the move will give the franchise a boost and ensure the team has a suitable stadium to play home games in. I wouldn't attend a game.

"I had tears in my eyes", Marie Duplessis, a longtime fan, told San Francisco's CBS affiliate. But Green reckons that there is a difference between moving within the same metropolitan area and moving states. Ian Rapoport said Monday on NFL Network that the 49ers would definitely be open to sharing the stadium with the Raiders for the 2019 season, and possibly even 2018. "They didn't engage with the city of Oakland in trying to come up with the comprehensive deal that would allow them to stay". I didn't ever really plan on going to Oakland to see a game but I might go to Vegas.
