1 this morning at their owners meeting in Phoenix to allow Mark Davis to relocate the Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas (Miami was the only no vote).
On Tuesday, Schaaf said she is "moving on". The Seaside, California native shared on Twitter that the first two National Football League games that he attended as a child were Raiders games at the Oakland Coliseum. Hunt, who didn't actually make his decision until this past week, wanted the Raiders to stay in Oakland.
Otto became the Hall of Famer known as Mr. Raider and Flores went on to be head coach of two franchise Super Bowl teams, after the 1980 and 1983 seasons.
He added that he wouldn't attend a Raiders' game for the next three years, which is the tentatively slated window for the team to remain in Oakland before the move to Las Vegas. "I'm originally from Los Angeles, so I used to watch them at the coliseum, and I know what we are going through now", Medina said.
"We are very excited to welcome the Raiders to our great city of Las Vegas", UNLV athletic director Tina Kunzer-Murphy said. "There will be disappointed fans and it's important for me to talk to them to explain why and how".

Detroit was second at $199.75 million and the Yankees, in the midst of a turn toward youth, third at $195 million. The Dodgers are looking very good this year from top to bottom and are ready to take the league by storm.
"My position today was that we as owners and as a League owe it to the fans to do everything we can to stay in the communities that have supported us until all options have been exhausted", Ross said in a statement.
It appears that the Raiders are already making contingency plans in case their divorce with the city of Oakland gets messy.
Now, the Raiders will be joining the Vegas Golden Knights - an expansion ice hockey team recently also approved by the NHL - as the shiny new professional franchises in a city that long had none to call its own. I'm not a diehard Raiders fan, but I do support the city of Oakland, so it ain't for me.
Davis really started looking for a new place to play when Alameda County raised the rent on the stadium where the Raiders now play.
Jones told the Star-Telegram on Monday that he made many trips to Las Vegas to help get the deal done.
