Raiders owner Mark Davis calls Vegas move 'bittersweet'

Raiders owner Mark Davis calls Vegas move 'bittersweet'

They could play as many as three seasons in a market they're leaving, creating a limbo period that isn't fun for many.

With that being said, I have ears on the ground everywhere.

I know, I know: Being jilted sucks. "It makes this whole thing bittersweet". "The A's have a 10-year lease on that property". However, the A's ownership group didn't like it enough to take the deal, likely as they were inhibited by their current lease as well as the costs involved, if it was indeed offered as reported.

"Looks like Mayor Schaaf is really focused on keeping the A's here", said Chris Dobbins of the organization Save Oakland Sports. Raiders see a city eager to have a team that their taxpayers voted to give $750 million to publicly fund a Stadium; they were able to find a partner to finance their stadium.

The third site is just across I-880 at Brooklyn Basin. "We wanted to do something that's great and is a world-class stadium".

This news puts a cap on the report of him meeting with the team. That should also help sway Lynch's decision upon returning to the league he left just a season ago.

"We don't have a place to build it", Davis said.

"We want a ballpark village. That wasn't going to happen". The Legislature, last October, agreed to raise $750 million to fund it. Sheldon Adelson, whose idea it was, has backed out of the financial picture.

By the year 2020, the Oakland A's are scheduled to be the only game in town. The Raiders are moving to Las Vegas. He would bring a physicality and intensity that Oakland could really use at that position.
