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.

    Logged in to say something about the cruddy pre season game and thought you were making a comment about the defense. But you are right this site is done as well

  • DieHaters/nationmoving2(702)

    I actually think the defense sucks worse than expected! Making the Lambs look like a HOF laden squad, pathetic!

  • DieHaters/nationmoving2(702)

    Team is going from cap space galore to cap strapped pretty quickly, hopefully they can find a way to make it work. At least it develops depth.
