Raiders Move Meeting Today In New York
Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis will appear before the NFL’s Stadium and Finance Committees today. Davis will need to show fellow owners that it’s in the best interests of the NFL to let him move his team to Las Vegas. Several of the NFL’s most powerful owners, or their representatives, will listen to Davis update his efforts to move the Raiders out of Oakland for a second time in the past 38 years.
More than half the NFL’s ownership groups will be at the NFL meetings in New York including Robert Kraft of the New England Patriots, who, along with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, has said Las Vegas is a favorable relocation destination. Committee members will question Davis about the Raiders’ progress on stadium and financing issues. Owners want concrete evidence that the Raiders have done their homework regarding Las Vegas’ economic viability as an NFL city.
