For a $100 refundable deposit, fans can "secure their place in history at the Las Vegas Stadium".
"If the fans would like us to stay there, we'd love to be there for that and possibly talk to them about extending it for maybe 2019 as well and try to bring a championship back to Oakland".
Someone should probably tell Green the Raiders moved to Los Angeles and back to Oakland again, and the Lakers also made a jump to a new city.
On the one hand, I feel really bad for the fans in Oakland.
According to the Los Angeles Daily News, the city of San Antonio would be a "possible temporary venue" if the Raiders are forced to leave Oakland.
"I would say it's going to go as far as it needs to from a player safety standpoint", said McKay, president of the Atlanta Falcons.
The Mercury News reports, "NFL executives were not moved by Oakland investors saying they could start building a new football stadium nearly immediately".

In 2016, Oakland Raiders fans were rewarded for their loyalty-after 14 seasons without making the playoffs, sophomore quarterback Derek Carr led the team to a 12-win season and their first postseason action since Rich Gannon and the 2002 iteration fell in Super Bowl XXXVII. He's right. I will also point out that that happened when they become good just previous year.
Mark Gergen, a UC Berkeley law professor, reviewed the lease and said it appears there is little the Coliseum authority can do to force the Raiders out early.
San Francisco Chronicle columnist Ann Killion echoed that, urging the Raiders to just go now and not let the door "hit you in the butt on the way out".
The Raiders are the third National Football League franchise to relocate to a different city within the last two years. It's one thing if you're moving from Oakland to Fremont or something, but to Las Vegas?
"If I was the fans I wouldn't attend a game the next two years". "I can not in good conscience give the Raiders my money". I won't attend a game, and I'm not a diehard Raiders fan, but I do support the city of Oakland. "You just don't do that". Until then, they will continue to call Oakland home.
