Raiders Officially known as the "Las Vegas Raiders"

Recommended Posts

They can call themselves whatever they would like, they will always belong to Oakland. </3

I appreciate that the people of Las Vegas finally get their own NFL team, but they got the wrong one.  As much as I love that Fallout game, so "Vegas Raiders" sounds right to me, hardly anyone in LA cares about the Chargers.

Vegas Golden Knights and Las Vegas Raiders should switch.

Las Vegas Golden Knights sounds better. As does Vegas Raiders.

It makes sense however why the hockey team took the shortened name: Vegas Golden Knights.
The Las Vegas Golden Knights - though accurate geographically is too long IMO.

The Las Vegas Raiders matches
The New York Giants / Jets
The San Francisco Niners
The Los Angeles teams
The New England Patriots
The San Antonio Spurs :)

That's exactly the reasoning behind why they cut of the "Las" for the hockey team.

Some words just sound better with the Las or just Vegas.

Same. It's not the same with them playing in Nevada, they are a California team thru and thru.

Vegas right next to LA, closer for all the Southern California fans than the Bay

Feels like creating a "third' identity....what a Raider thing to do.

Knew it was only a matter of time. I'm not any more likely to visit Vegas than Oakland honestly, so it doesn't affect me. It just seems weird.

Whatever you do, don't sign Manziel. :/
