Despite commissioner Roger Goodell keeping fairly quiet on Tuesday about the potential move of the Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas, owner Mark Davis decided to be a little more vocal.
Davis made these comments on NFL Network:
I’m excited about it. It’s a new market. It’s got the potential to be a really exciting market. The Raider fan in Northern California get upset a little bit when we talk about going to Los Angeles, and the L.A. fans get a little ticked off at the fans in Northern California, so it seems like Las Vegas is a neutral site that everybody’s kind of bought into. It will unite the Raider nation more than divide it.
Davis said that he is not giving up on staying in Oakland, but did say: “I’ve given my commitment to Las Vegas, and if they can come through with what they’re talked about doing, then we’ll go to Las Vegas.”
It sounds as though Davis is ready to make the move to Sin City.
