Still, knowing their team will be leaving for Las Vegas is sure to convince some of the most loyal Black and Silver fans to jump ship.
The only owner to vote against the Raiders' relocation was the Miami Dolphins' Stephen Ross, a man who Draymond Green considers as a mentor and an admirable person for standing up for what he believes in.
However, his plans to remain in Oakland in the short-term may be derailed, as it has been reported by the East Bay Times that local Councilman Larry Reid, apparently angered by the team's decision to leave, wants the Raiders to clear out of the Coliseum, possibly as early as next season. Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf feels the city gave it's all. The Oakland Raiders are a well-supported franchise with history in the Bay Area. "But thats just me", Green said.
"It would be a natural, I would think", Del Rio said Tuesday at the AFC coaches breakfast during the National Football League owners meetings, a day after the Raiders won the vote to relocate to Southern Nevada by a 31-1 count.

It will be a odd and potentially ugly situation with the Raiders as a lame-duck team in the Bay Area.

"It's one thing if you're moving them from Oakland to Fremont or something", Green said. I wouldn't attend a game. I feel like all fans should feel that way. "They didn't engage with the city of Oakland in trying to come up with the comprehensive deal that would allow them to stay".
"If I was a fan, I wouldn't attend a game for the next three years", Green said.
