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.

  • CHUCKY IS BACK (baby Al)

    Rich Gannon to be considered qb coach. Look for names Tim Brown and Charles Woodson to also join Grudens staff.

  • CHUCKY IS BACK (baby Al)

    Gruden said on 95.7 he did talk with Gannon after the presser. Said he wants Gannon. Just doesn’t know where it’s going yet

  • CHUCKY IS BACK (baby Al)

    He’ll get Gannon

    Hmm, I think Jon Gruden suggested to @JimTrotter_NFL that he wants the tarps off the Coliseum upper deck.

    @FallonSmithNBCS

    Jon Gruden on hiring @RichGannon12 as #Raiders QB coach, he joked “Rich & I argued everyday when I was coaching I don’t know if I want to argue w/ him everyday now” then he went on to day “Gannon is always at the top of my rolodex so we will be talking”

    Raiders to interview Eliot Wolf, Packers’ director of football operations, for a senior position in player personnel department Thursday in Alameda, sources said. Job title yet to be defined. Won’t be much of interview, given GM Reggie McKenzie’s familiarity with him.

    Far more than this. Ron’s relationship with the Davis family. I think this is more of a negotiation and he leaves with a deal

  • CHUCKY IS BACK (baby Al)

    Eliot Wolf to be interviewed Thursday. Front office will get stronger

  • CHUCKY IS BACK (baby Al)

    CHUCKY and Mark will be sitting in also. I bet they aren’t letting him leave without a deal

    Gruden will keep the players in line. Cable will handle the assistants
