The Raiders' lease at Oakland Coliseum will be up at the end of the 2017 regular season with team options to continue playing there after each of the next two years. "They won't have that to worry about that at first".
Del Rio has asked for consecutive East Coast games close enough where the Raiders could stay out there and avoid one cross country trip.
"You have to be very thoughtful", Kaval said. Their commodity? The joy they bring fan bases. See, I moved here right before Week 2 of the 1994 National Football League season, and in the 22-plus years since, I've worked as both a sports journalist and in the sports-betting industry.

The state of Nevada is now the United States heavyweight champion in handing out sports subsidies. "So it would not be appropriate to address the matter now".
