Maybe he likes to attend baseball games, because the only anthem played where he will be on a field won't be ours.

Did Aldon Smith get released? I thought he had some weapons charges pending. What a waste, I was rooting for him in SF. Justin Smith on the line and Aldon at LB was tough on QB's.

Yes they were a terror together!
He is now under investigation for domestic violence last time I checked. He is (was) a beast on the field but he is the poster child throwing away talent. He probably shouldn't see the field until a pot smoking talent like Josh Gordon gets back on the field for the Browns.

Sigi, think the Raiders will end up in LV? I think they will. The league and owners want into LV bad methinks.

Yes he did. But that guy is a dumpster fire. Amazing talent though. I have been thinking about Lynch and him coming out of retirement to play. At first I was not fond of the idea but the more I think about it, if Lynch has the fire to win after that last super bowl he may still have a few good years left. And I think he would ad value to the locker room.

I'm a Browns fan for life but I'd have zero problem also supporting the Las Vegas Raiders. I think the votes are there for the move. I believe they vote in April. I'm liking the stadium design concepts I've seen.

I will laugh my ass off if Cutler winds up with the Jets, especially since the Bears just signed one of their QB castoffs, Mark Sanchez, to a one year deal.

If the Bears don't pick up a decent mid round QB in the draft, they're more than likely going to have to start from scratch again as far as GM/coaching goes. That's the problem with the Bears, they're always picking up the flotsam and jetsam from the rest of the league.

I'll bet GMs on opposing teams and players looking to catch on with a team lick their chops whenever the phone rings and Ryan Pace is on the other end of the line, looking to make a deal .

Grew up as a Raider fan back in 70's. Yeah, I'm that fucking old.... I'm happy about this move. Can't wait to get my hands on some Vegas Raiders gear.

This is great news. As a life long raiders fan now I can take cheap flights out to see them play. Great move for the team and fans imo.

Ah. the good ol' days with Ken Stabler, Fred Biletnikoff, Cliff Branch, Jack Tatum, Gene Upshaw, Lester "The Molester" Hayes, et al...

Back when football was football.

Now there's something worthwhile to do in Vegas instead of losing your money.

I still say they should change their name to the "Sin City Raiders."
