NFL owners revamp video replay for officiating

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross was the only vote that opposed the relocation. "The VIP section will be exclusively available to Raiders players and other high-profile athletes, and staffed with over twenty cheerleader-garbed working girls called either the "Wide Receivers" or 'Hookerettes", I haven't decided yet". In fact, McKenzie said Carr is such a team player that the 26-year-old is in no hurry. The San Diego Chargers - led by owner Dean Spanos - moved to Los Angeles on January 12 and less than 15 months ago on January 13, National Football League owners approved the Rams' move from St. Louis to Los Angeles.

"It will be tougher on the families than it is on the player or coach because, when a team moves, you're moving with your whole "team family". We moved from little Savannah Georgia to the Bay in 1989. We worked tirelessly over the last nine months or so on a solution.

"My position today was that we as owners and as a League owe it to fans to do everything we can to stay in the communities that have supported us until all options have been exhausted", said Ross. The Raiders likely will play two to three more years in the East Bay before a $1.7 billion stadium is built near the Las Vegas strip. The awkward situation of a lame-duck team lingering for two or more seasons is nearly too weird to process. "We're still the Raiders and we represent Raider Nation". "If [sharing Levi's] was an opportunity, we'd certainly sit down and discuss it, but I think there are a lot of moving pieces right now that it's really conjecture to talk about 2019 at this point, when they'd still, obviously, prefer to be at the Coliseum". The NHL approved an expansion club, the Vegas Golden Knights, in 2016.

There are other potential hang-ups that could slow construction of the Las Vegas stadium, which doesn't have a definite site yet. If the Raiders organization can create a unique, Vegas-themed atmosphere in their stadium, while having success on the field, it is quite possible that the team will become a major tourist attraction, rather than just an attraction for the team's fans. This made the city's bid to keep the team even less attractive than it already was. But that letter was "filled with uncertainty", according to Goodell. The final bill was estimated to be $2.5 billion, but of that, almost $1.7 billion was financed by tax-exempt municipal bonds issued by New York City.

Changes to the Clean Power Plan rule will require EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt to write a new rule, which could take years. Reliably Republican strongholds such as Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas generate an increasing amount of electricity from wind.

In the case of Mack, the Raiders' first-round pick in 2014, the team can exercise the option for his fifth season in 2018. "I'm glad they've got a bright future". Remember, a renovated stadium can not compare to, say, the space-age palace the Falcons are opening in Atlanta this season.

San Francisco 49ers owners John York, left, and Jed York, right, arrive for sessions at the NFL football annual meetings, Monday in Phoenix.

While average people in Nevada will fork over their hard-earned money to help build the new stadium, only wealthy fans, wielding their expense-account, will be able to afford to set foot in the arena. "Oakland is an incredible sports town and we would be sorry to see them leave".
