The tug of war over the Oakland Raiders continues. On Monday, the Nevada governor signed a bill approving a $750 million tax subsidy to help build a $1.9 billion stadium in Las Vegas, furthering the city's bid to convince the Raiders to relocate. Raiders owner Mark Davis has already pledged to move the team to Las Vegas, pending approval by the NFL and a vote by team owners. Meanwhile, Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf says she is working to keep the team "where they belong." We get an update on the Raiders' status.
