So what stands in the way of the Las Vegas Raiders?
Now that they’ve filed their paperwork and sent it to the league office, essentially all we have left before the Vegas Raiders becomes a reality is a vote by the owners and an agreement to build a stadium. All they need is 24 votes and the relocation board is moving quickly on a stadium deal. This is going to happen. “If enough owners approve the application, which seems quite likely based on the swift approval of recent moves and statements from powerful owners like Jones and Robert K. Kraft of the New England Patriots, the Raiders would become the third N.F.L. team to move in less than two years.”
