Raiders owner Mark Davis attended the ceremony but did not speak at the event. While Mark had for sometime maintained publicly that he was "trying to stay in Oakland", privately all his business moves have indicated otherwise.
Still, NFL owners must approve any potential Raiders relocation from Oakland. "We'll be working really hard to find us a home".
Gov. Brian Sandoval is signing a bill into law that clears the way for a Las Vegas stadium that could be home to both UNLV football and the Raiders.
In 2017 the National Football League has an owners meeting scheduled for both March and May, meaning there's a good chance that the Raiders relocation vote will go down at one of those two get togethers.

Farmers belonging to Tamizhaga Vivasayigal Sangam resorted to novel protest by cooking food on track at Thanjavur. This apart, farmers have also made a decision to stage protests in various places across the district.
And that is why Davis wants to assure the other owners and Raiders fans and restate his plan for the team to play in Oakland in 2017 and '18, while the Las Vegas stadium would be under construction. "We'll be fortifying our economy and cementing our position as the number one tourist and hospitality destination on planet Earth".
The bill raises hotel room taxes to help fund the stadium, which is backed by casino owner Sheldon Anderson.
He (Davis) got the largest public funding in the history of stadiums.
Simply put, (and assuming the Chargers haven't run a scam campaign to simply show San Diego they tried before moving to Los Angeles) there now exists the possibility and (more crucially) time, for the Chargers and San Diego to try and work out a new stadium deal which most everyone feels comfortable with. "Davis will need 24 votes to get approval for a move, and ownership sources continue to assert that it's far from certain he will obtain that support".
