With the addition of the Rams back into the L.A. scene as a football team, many football franchises in close markets have been thinking about leaving town.
One of the teams that may leave town in the Oakland Raiders. While San Antonio was the first city that showed interest, a new destination has come into play and is making steam to be the home of Raider Nation: Las Vegas.
Las Vegas Sands chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson wants to build a $1 billion domed stadium on the UNLV campus.
Davis has long stated that remaining in Oakland is his primary goal, but after being rebuffed in an attempt to move to Los Angeles and join the Chargers in a joint-stadium project in nearby Carson, the Raiders do not have a lease for a home stadium for the 2016 season.
The Raiders need a home, and Las Vegas may be able to provide one.

Should The Raiders Move To Las Vegas?

@mchlyang well, how bout they do what the patriots do. They could be stationed near Las Vegas but far enough away that they could avoid the distractions. I mean we associate the Patriots with Boston yet they're stadium is in Foxboro. Im sure that there is a city near las vegas that could be good for both the team, the cities, and the tourism.
@Straightshooter You mean by all the brothels? Hell yeah!
It might be good for a sustainable business model but I feel like Las Vegas would provide too much distractions for the players....
It could very well be the change that they need to start winning
Yes! I would love to see them do this. California does not need 4 teams. I mean Texas is just as bug and they only have 2 teams. New York and Florida have 3 teams and their even smaller. I would fully support this move AND Nevada would be able to support an Nfl franchise plus think of all the things tourists could do in Las Vegas besides the gambling and sex.
