Its official, the Raiders are relocating to the city i was born, raised, and still currently live in. Las Vegas, Nevada. Its a strange feeling really, and thinking about my hometown having a team playing my childhood team and me sitting in the stadium watching the Chiefs play the team thats representing my hometown is tough. I guess the Raiders will always be my 2nd team now and if they win a Super bowl its going to be an even stranger feeling, cant say i wouldnt be happy because i damn sure would be (As long as they do it in Las Vegas and not Oakland) since they dont move until 2019 or 2020. Alot of people ive talked to say they are going to jump ship but i just cant go away from my team ive loved my entire life. Either way im glad Vegas is getting more teams here (were getting a NHL team too).
How would you feel if your hometown got a football team (assuming youre not from KC)? Or what if the Chiefs left KC for good and the Raiders came to KC, would you boycott the Raiders? Even if they are in KC for 9+ years? I feel really bad about whats happend, i didnt know that the Raiders would be coming to my town of Vegas, i grew up liking the Chiefs, i never had any intentions of liking any other team, now it seems i may. My reality has been shook, i didnt see this option, im almost confused, im also sad, Chiefs is the team i love but damn a hometown team i always wished we had a hometown team, i nearly never met Chiefs fans here in Vegas but i didnt care i dealt with it. Now a team will be here soon. Its ripping my heart out ive liked the Chiefs for 25 years so i have no regrets at all.
