Warriors' Draymond Green encourages Raiders fans to boycott games in Oakland

Just a day after the team's Las Vegas relocation bid was approved by the National Football League, the Raiders are asking fans who claim they will fill the stadium in Las Vegas to put their money where their mouth is. However, the lease has a catch: It's set up as two single-year options, which means the Raiders can back out of it after the 2017 season. On Monday, the team gained league approval to move to Las Vegas.

It happened that fast for Oakland Monday, when a vote of 31-1 ripped the Raiders out of a town in which they began playing 57 years ago and placed them in Vegas.

"Now there are questions from the drafted guys about when they become free agents, because they might be in Vegas". He said the vote came very quickly after Raiders' owner Marc Davis made his presentation to the owners. Miami was the lone dissenter.

MARK DAVIS: I love Oakland. So it hurt me before I was doing this and still now, I'm a Charger fan.

As he does so, he also can address what is ahead for a team that, on the field, clearly is on the rise. San Antonio and the Raiders are being mentioned as possible partners, but this time on a temporary basis. Players and coaches need to understand their defined roles.

The Raiders are technically still the Oakland Raiders, and will be for a couple of years, but they're already starting to pack for Las Vegas. In the first of those, they won the Super Bowl despite being (sort of) on their way out. The Raiders will continue to practice at the team's facility in Alameda, California, while they remain in Oakland. Who was the one dissenting vote?

After last night's win against the Rockets, Draymond spoke more about how saddened he is for the fan base and compared the Raiders leaving Oakland to the Cowboys moving away from Dallas, or the Celtics ditching Boston. "I think it will definitely expand the whole market, everyone is going to Vegas for something, but as well catch a football game while you're down there".

With their new 65,000 seat domed stadium not expected to open until 2020, the Raiders are expected to play in Oakland in 2017 and likely 2018. Even though they have said they plan to play in Oakland the next two years.

LA Rams fans celebrate the return of the team to the city.

While 2019 is not almost upon us, Davis needs a concrete plan for that season, including finding a training facility as well as a stadium. "The (Las Vegas) stadium will just be built at that point".

The new stadium being built in part with $750 million in public funds approved by Nevada lawmakers. It's conceivable, if highly improbable, that snags will hit in those areas.

So, if history is any indication, the modern-day Raiders' move could lead to them sinking their franchise and possibly missing out on being the NFL's next dynasty to, well, kind of being the NFL's next dynasty.
