#LibbySchaaf’s #EpicFail as #RaiderNation gets set to move to #LasVegas

Raiders fans filled a wing of the Oakland Coliseum with a cacophony of chants, stomping and speeches Saturday morning, their last stand to keep the team in town before NFL owners vote on a Las Vegas relocation this week.

Mayor Libby Schaaf implored team officials to restart negotiations, something she said they have spurned for more than a year, publicly revealing for the first time details on her conversations with league officers and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell — and the near silence she’s gotten from Raiders owner Mark Davis.

Stadium proponents in Las Vegas want to build a $1.9 billion, 65,000-seat domed stadium using a mix of financing from Bank of America, the NFL and $750 million in public money from a hotel room tax.

Impoverished Oakland can’t possibly match that.
