How do Chiefs fans feel about the Raiders move to Las Vegas?

New, comments

The Oakland Raiders are GONE! The NFL announced their move to Las Vegas.

On the one hand, I feel really bad for the fans in Oakland. Losing a team is no joke and the Raiders were JUST starting to get good.

I saw the KC Star’s Terez Paylor mention that his stories got a bunch of eyeballs when the Chiefs played the Raiders last year, which shows how much those fans care. He’s right. I will also point out that that happened when they become good just last year. The 10 years before that the Raiders were a bit of a joke and those eyeballs weren’t there.

But that’s why this is so hurtful - they are leaving when right when the team becomes good. It’s never a good time to leave but right after your best team in decades .... ugh.

On the other hand, Las Vegas is probably a better road trip. I didn’t ever really plan on going to Oakland to see a game but I might go to Vegas.

I don’t like all this relocation going on. It’s not good for the league. But I kinda like Vegas ...

So, Raiders to Vegas ... do we like this or not?
