On the 15th anniversary of the “Tuck Rule” game, the Raiders have officially filed papers with the NFL in their bid to move to Las Vegas.

How’s that for a gut punch for Raider Nation?

Raiders owner Mark Davis reportedly believes he has enough support among fellow owner to win the two-thirds vote required to move the team. There are still details to be worked out with Las Vegas as Davis formulates his exit strategy. But all signs point toward a March vote by NFL owners to determine whether Las Vegas will get the Raiders.

Many of you have been through this before when Al Davis took the Raiders to Los Angeles after the 1981 season. And you obviously stayed true to your team or you wouldn’t be on this blog.

But will a move to Vegas change how your view your team? Will you still go to games in Nevada?

Should Oakland play hardball with the Raiders now?

Davis’ move, coupled with the haunting, anniversary memories from 15 years ago when the Raiders were seemingly robbed of a victory in snowy New England because of a little-known NFL rule?

If you have some time, here’s a terrific story on what happened in New England that night.

Until then, the waiting game until the owners meeting in March begins.

    I never needed anyone

    And making love was just for fun

    Those days are gone

    Livin’ alone

    I think of all the friends I’ve known

    But when I dial the telephone

    Nobody’s home

    All by myself

    Don’t wanna be all by myself anymore

    All by myself

    Don’t want………………….

    Brother Homer, whats new. Things are great here. Just giving God glory, praise and thanks.
    I am taking a break from the cesspool but tell everyone I will return some day and school them some more about the flatearth. Oh and tell Dave to rest easy. He does not have that much power over me. All I had to do was send him a email, give him my # and addy and he would have sent me gifts.
    In the meantime check out this old school masonry.
