Raiders in Vegas will draw LA Raider fans there by the droves. I see more Raider shirts and hats than Rams gear.

With Gruden back at the helm, the Raiders in Vegas look to become a winner year in and year out.We have the Chargers here and now the Raiders a desert trek away in Sin City.

Rams better keep winning or else that new stadium will be filled up with junk fans from other cities.

Rams put a division winning product on the field this year and still had to beg fans to show up.

Despite how much we were all assured that rabid millions were burning candles in the window for 22 years.

They have an uphill climb, regardless. Their best bet for attendance will be that new stadium.

You ever been to Vegas? Vegas is a gambling town and I don’t think the Raiders will draw they very well.
We shall see.

I don't see how it's not an away team fest in those stands.

Let's make you a Packers fan. You live in Armpit, Wisconsin. It's miserable. On top of that, Packers tickets are hard to come by.

But you and 4 buddies, making a weekend of it in Vegas to see your team play out there? That's a hard sell?

Since the 'Silver-&-Black' will face our team in Los Angeles only once every eight years, why should this matter all that much?

Raiders' fans traveling to watch their team play in Las Vegas, so what concern is that going to be for Rams' fans...?? :o 8-) :?:

RAM POWER!!

I feel bad for hard core Raider fans in NoCal - they had a great history and the Davis family has f****d them over twice.

I think Vegas will be a zoo atmosphere for them.

No clue and don’t care how it effects my Rams, just win baby.

He loves MCVay...........

Blitz needs to walk away for a while. At least until the draft instead of throwing crap at the wall because he is bored.

Really? I never knew Vegas was so strict but then I avoid the place.

Why would Vegas turn down paid ticket holders?

I'm doubtful that the Raiders would do so, no matter where they're playing their home games, at least not merely based on the ticket purchasers' game-day attire... :) 8-) :geek:

The league moves the team. The owners have nothing to do with it. That's just fictional stories.
Notice how both Raiders and Pats, original.afl teams are painted as cheaters while winning alot. It's a redundant show

The Raiders ownership is incompetent, but they requested the relocation vote, not the league.

:lol: Nice take.

tRaitors will have no homefield there. The stadium will be filled with out of towners given tickets from the casinos.

Vegas is still a relatively small market and when the Chargers moved to LA the tRs lost that tv market. IMHO their move to Vegas won’t affect the Rams at all.

The Ray-duhs presence in L.A. only served their fans already here. Even winning a SB didn't trigger an exodus of Ram fans trading loyalties from Anaheim to the Colosseum. Within a 2 hour drive from the Rams present location, or the new Kreonke World there is a population of over 12 million people. As Genx pointed out last year, with a damn good team, they still had to beg people to come. Ray-duhs in Vegas won't make one bit of difference.

Will Raiders in Vegas Dilute Ram Popularity? I doubt it. In any case the Rams have a brand new stadium coming. They will be in L.A. for a long time to come.

LOL! :lol:

"Fictional stories," really?

So you truly believe that Al Davis had "nothing to do with" the Raiders' two previous moves, way back in 1982 and then again in '95, hmmmm...?? :shock: :roll: :?:

RAM POWER!!

Great idea. Those cities already have new soccer stadiums they can play in, just like Carson.

what part of-its made up- dont you get? no, you read a story the writer was told to write. You heard what the owners were told to say. The Raiders have no power. The Rams moved into the State and the Raiders are moving out after the north region already got a ton of playoff money from the Warriors, Niners and Sharks, Giants over the last few years. Its no accident the Raiders are moving out as the Rams move in. Its all part of the same dance routine.
Notice how the Rams move in while the lakers arent getting 6 to 12 extra playoff games a year now.
money is your god. Money is your ruler. Money is the reason

They also have 60,00+ seat venues that the local PAC-12 Universities play in that I'm sure they would use should the need arise, instead of the Quickie Mart Parks you suggest.

Lucrative TV/Marketing deals have made attendance #'s less important to some. Revenue sharing is a great thing for the smaller markets

Still a longshot that they would go into those markets but it could work and who knows.
Of course the League would make it contingent on approved new NFL facilities.

I was being slightly facetious there, 66. Playing at Stub Hub they drew about 12,000 Charger fans per game with the remaining seats being filled with their opponents fans. The Galaxy were outdrawing the Chargers.
