Didn't see a thread, if someone post just combine.

Has there ever been a division that had 2 teams change cities same week? I don't know if I like playing in vegas or not. I don't like any of the teams in our division, but damn I feel sad for them. I couldn't imagine broncos leaving Colorado.

Can LA support two football teams? They barely can support the dodgers and lakers.

Vegas needs to have a stadium and no home team - 17 games there.

I honestly think it will kill home field advantage for raiders, everyone will be out of towners, drinking/gambling, and could careless about game. Just there so they can say they went to a NFL game in vegas.

LA can, but hasn't been able to in past. Guess we will see.

there's a ton of raiders fans in southern california that would likely travel to vegas for home games. even the bay area isn't that far to travel from.

the difference between the chargers moving and the raiders moving is that it seems a lot of raiders fans are more accepting of the move than chargers fans are. yeah sure we would prefer them to stay in oakland or even go to los angeles if they have to move, but this vegas deal is good too. as a raiders fan i'm perfectly fine with the move and am excited for the team to play in a brand new stadium.

of course part of that is the raider nation is quite a bit bigger than the chargers fandom.

A few things:

1. I can't ****ing wait to have a Broncos weekend in Vegas.
2. I'd love to make the trip and see the Chargers in LA over the next 2 years, and I don't know if I can make it happen. But they're playing 2 seasons in a soccer stadium that holds 30K people. A more close up, intimate experience could be very cool.
3. With #2 in mind, I'm also excited to see that new stadium in LA in 2019. Should be very cool.

I can only imagine how much the hookers and strippers stand to make with the NFL cumming.

Could be a motivational killer for the Raiders. These guys are gonna party at home. Visitors will fly in might before with lights out at ten. This is good news for us. Raiders, short sighted and money grabbing ever since I've known them.

Yep. This would be like London on a weekly basis, but in America's entertainment capital. Have it such that all 32 teams would play a game there at least once every season, and offer packages for fans to travel with boarding and food. It'd be gigantic success.

Might be interesting. An annual trip to Vegas to see the Broncos sounds pretty good.

I wonder if Vegas will provide a home field advantage for the faiders for visiting teams in that the Vegas night life will be a distraction?

Broncos can be alright in most parts of the Rocky Mountain as the fan base spreads throughout the Region. I would't recommend it, though. Vegas is great for their fans as it is close to California plus they should sell out being a destination for opposing team too. In Vegas, the hotels will be buying up a ton of those tickets. It will look like the Superbowl with polo wearing, high rollers taking the good seats and the die hard Goon Squad will be pissed the black hole doesn't look so scary anymore....well, that will stay the same as the cops would recommend keeping them all in one area.

The Dodgers have been #1 in attendance for a number of years running and the lakers have hovered around #10 while fielding an uncompetitive roster for the last few years. I would say those two teams are safe.

If the Raiders/NFL were smart they would wait a little while and see how this goes for the NHL.

Different sport, and less popular, but I think it would be a good barometer.

I don't like it. They're our nemesis the Oakland Raiders. Not the Vegas Raiders. But whatever. Its not like they haven't moved before and their homefield advantage should be lessened.

On one hand...I'm used to the LA/Oakland Raiders. The villains of my youth, ect. On the other...is there another NFL team besides the Buccaneers that would fit perfectly in Las Vegas?

I actually like the 80's New Wave Brit pop genre of music.

Every major sports team in Los Angeles is doing well with attendance. Always has. Perception has been far from reality.

That's true lol

I just don't like all the change in the division. The AFC West is one of the most historic divisions in the league. Definitely the most in the conference.

I like the Vegas move.

The population is larger in Las Vegas than in Oakland, less sports teams to compete with, plus you have all the tourist that will hit up the games.

The Lakers are around No. 10 because of the size of the arena. They are always th capacity that they set.
