TED LUDWICK: Oh, it's another classic.
It's natural that players are going to wonder about their future homes, but Del Rio's point is a valid one - if they don't play well in Oakland the next year or two, it may not matter.
MCEVERS: Back in the early '80s, team owner Al Davis hated the decrepit Oakland Coliseum where the Raiders played.
The move definitely won't stop Bosquez's commitment to his team.
The Raiders are now expected to play at least the next two seasons in the Bay Area, leaving fans to hope for another championship in Oakland prior to any records being set elsewhere. Davis is committed to bringing a Super Bowl title, and he's really is being beaten up by the move.
Space mission extended for Iowa astronaut Peggy Whitson
Peggy Whitson will stay with Jack Fischer and Fyodor Yurchikhin (Roscosmos); she will return on Earth with them on September 3. Former astronaut Scott Kelly holds the US record for the longest single flight at 340 days.
He also had the fleeting idea to making a bet with the internet that would land him with a Mark Davis-esque haircut, but he thought better of it before it was too late. "I very much respect and support the fans who have every right to fight". "Yes I did hear about the news, about them going to Vegas", said Mary Gonzalez, of Tulare.
On Tuesday, Schaaf said she is "moving on". "You have an obligation to recognize that professional football teams are the lifeblood, culture and identity of the places where they play".
At least fans in Oakland still have the Warriors, who just recorded their 60th win of the season and look the favorites to win an National Basketball Association title-not to mention the Oakland Athletics open the 2017 season against the Los Angeles Angels Monday.
MARK DAVIS: I love Oakland. "They didn't engage with the city of Oakland in trying to come up with the comprehensive deal that would allow them to stay". "That's just me. That's ridiculous".
After the Warriors' game against the Houston Rockets, Draymond Green was asked about the Raiders move to Las Vegas, and wasn't supportive of it. They'll be the second major pro sports team to play in Vegas after the NHL's Golden Knights start their first season later this year.
