NFL owners approved the Oakland Raiders' move to Las Vegas in a 31-1 vote Monday, ending a years-long effort by the city of Oakland to retain the team. The Raiders will play at the Oakland Coliseum for the 2017 season, and possibly longer, while a 65,000-seat, $1.9 billion stadium to be shared with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas is built. The vote comes just two months after the Golden State Warriors broke ground on a new arena in San Francisco. We discuss what the relocation of both teams means for the Bay Area and how Raiders fans are responding to news of the NFL vote.
