Oakland Coliseum apparently doesn't want Raiders to return in 2019

The Raiders needed to get 24 votes from league owners, a three-quarters majority, to move.

"I feel bad for the city of Oakland, man", Green said to a pool of reporters yesterday, as reported by the San Jose Mercury News/Bay Area News Group. "Our first choice was to try and find" a solution in Oakland. The Mayor and her team have worked incredible hard to save the franchise. We're particularly disappointed for the fans. "Added Goodell, "We just couldn't get it done".

The leader of the Coliseum authority board said it loses money on Raiders games and he has no interest in having the Las Vegas-bound team play in Oakland beyond the 2018 season. "Our community is on the rise, and that has clearly been recognized by the National Football League owners with today's vote".

The Raiders will play the 2017, 2018 and possibly 2019 seasons in Oakland before kicking off the 2020 season in Las Vegas, Davis said. Bank of America also is giving Davis a $650 million loan, further helping to persuade owners to allow the third team relocation in just over a year. I want to wish Mark Davis and the Raiders organization the best in Las Vegas. As players, we will show up and give everything we have.

Sprint goes all in on its unlimited data plan
Crediting Wave7 Research for the information, the WSJ says the USA firm may end the promotion within the next few days. It focused on offering a 50% discount off the plans offered by the other carriers.

The landlord of the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, home of the Oakland Raiders and Athletics, says it is possible that the Raiders won't be tenants in the 2019 season.

After last night's win against the Rockets, Draymond spoke more about how saddened he is for the fan base and compared the Raiders leaving Oakland to the Cowboys moving away from Dallas, or the Celtics ditching Boston.

"Regardless, I'll always be a Raider and cherish my time with them and I'll go to Vegas if they will have me", he said. I would also like to thank Governor Brian Sandoval and the Nevada Legislature for their commitment. "Finally, I would like to thank Sheldon Adelson for his vision and leadership, without which this project would never have become a reality".

However, the lease has a catch: It's set up as two single-year options, which means the Raiders can back out of it after the 2017 season.
