Raiders headed to Las Vegas

The Raiders are leaving Oakland again, this time for the neon lights of Las Vegas.In a decision that would have been hard to fathom not so long ago, NFL owners voted 31-1 on Monday at the Annual League Meeting to approve the Raiders' proposal to relocate to Las Vegas. 

The decision comes after years of fruitless efforts by Raiders owner Mark Davis to build a viable stadium in Oakland. 

The failure to do so, which goes back to Davis' late father Al Davis' stewardship of the team, led to exploring stadium options in Los Angeles and eventually Las Vegas, where Nevada lawmakers approved $750 million in public funding for a new stadium. 

The Autumn Wind will no longer blow through Raiders games as the team is expected to move into a planned $1.7 billion domed stadium in Las Vegas.
