Vegas has been a city that has been highly spoken about the last few weeks… But why? The Oakland Raiders recently were invited to move to Los Angeles, but the fans played a huge part in keeping them in the Bay Area. Lately, a proposal for the Raiders to go to Vegas has the Raider fans pumped to go. Moving to Vegas could be one of the biggest moves in NFL history. Roger Goodell definitely hasn’t given us anything to get hype over just yet.

Goodell called any talk “premature”.

The Raiders owner, Mark Davis, on the other hand has given us a big boost in how important the move is. He recently met with officials in Vegas and told reporters on Tuesday at the meetings that the move would “unite Raider Nation.”

“It’s a new market,” Davis said. “It’s got the potential to be a very exciting market. It’s one of the places where, the Raider fans in northern California … it’s a neutral site. It’s going to unite the Raider nation more than divide it. I’ve given my commitment to Las Vegas and if they can come through with what they’re talking about doing, then we’ll go to Las Vegas.”
