The Oakland Raiders are looking to move to Las Vegas.
"We are moving on from that", Commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday during his Super Bowl LI news conference.
So it's not exactly a surprise that Commissioner Roger Goodell and the league appear to be exploring additional ways to retain viewers as we hit the offseason. "That is something we think is imperative to us". Do you expect the owners to keep that and/or expand it to other fouls? "Not likely a stadium either". The following season, with these bitter court battles looming, the Raiders would win their second Super Bowl decisively over the Eagles. If the Raiders are to move to Las Vegas, it now appears that they would need to secure outside financing from an investment bank like Goldman Sachs, which was linked to the stadium project before following Adelson out. "It's sponsored by governments".
"It does today, it exists throughout our world", Goodell said. "But with the First Amendment, you have to respect those rights", Yolonda Cameron said.

Goodell suspended Brady four games, which he sat out this season, for his alleged role in the use of purposely deflated footballs in the AFC Championship Game in January 2015. All this evidently is news to the commissioner.
With a full week of media days in Houston, including a Roger Goodell press conference, the questions swirled about the ruling and how like totes awk all this is for RG. I'll take your word for it. He expressed the fact that the current labor agreement has helped the National Football League generate revenue at unprecedented heights. "I said, 'Bob, you should have never made the deal'".
"It would be nice to be on the field when he has to give the trophy over (to Brady)", said Martin.
Goodell has not traveled to Foxboro since the 2014-15 divisional round when the Patriots hosted the Ravens, and opted to attend back-to-back Falcons' playoff games this season. Again, Goodell pleaded ignorance. "I think the league handled it very poorly", he said. He hugs me, and he kisses me, and he said: 'I love you.
