Your Fall/Winter edition arrived in the mail yesterday. Wow. It really is a fantastic edition. Obviously a lot of quality work went into producing this. Very impressive.

Question Man
Will the Raiders leave Oakland for 
Las Vegas? Why or why not?
(To participate, send your reply and a selfie to

Roland Peterson
To answer your question about whether the Raiders will move to Vegas, my answer is still no.  
One thing that hasn't been discussed is the NFL's relocation fee.  The NFL  got $500 million from the Rams for the right to move from St. Louis to Los Angeles. They won't need as much from the Raiders, but it would still be at least half that, and Mark Davis can't afford it. It would be far more lucrative for the NFL to put an expansion team in Vegas than the Raiders. 

My two cents worth....
