It appears the Raiders and Oakland are dotting their i’s and crossing their t’s in negotiations. But an official resolution of the team’s home for 2019 is not expected this week, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Lease terms for the Coliseum are under discussion and up for review, per Gehlken, with next week more likely for a finalized agreement and Coliseum Authority approval.

So, after much ado about nothing, the Raiders are going back to where they ended last season despite the city of Oakland’s lawsuit against the NFL and its 32 teams.

The Raiders are expected to pay $7.5 million in 2019, with an option to stay in 2020 at $10.5 million in the event their new stadium in Las Vegas isn’t ready.

  1. How about a calculation on profit with rent at $7.5 for gate and concessions (if applicable)? Seems like just the gate for two games already puts them in the black – even with rev share.

  2. I can’t wait until the Raiders pack up and leave Oakland for good. The city (Libby Schaff) told him to get lost as far as funding goes. Thankfully, 2019 will be their last season in that cesspool. In 2020, the Raiders will become a southern Nevada team. They will play in a beautiful, modern stadium that they have needed for a long time.

    2020 is the birth of the Las Vegas Raiders.

    How about Mexico for the next couple years, they already played there once last year and the place was packed with Raider fans.

  4. “In 2020, the Raiders will become a southern Nevada team. They will play in a beautiful, modern stadium that they have needed for a long time.”

    And that beautiful, modern stadium will be mostly filled with visiting fans, not Raiders fans. Davis doesn’t care though, he’s laughing all the way to the bank while the fools in Vegas pay for his billion dollar palace

  5. Just give Oakland some $5 lobster dinner, free drink vouchers and complimentary tickets to Wayne Newton and call it even.

    Regards,
    Vegas
