The Raidess are no longer the Oakland Raiders:
The Raiders are no longer the Oakland Raiders. They’re not the Las Vegas Raiders either.
For now, they’re just the Raiders.
The franchise made a change to all of its social media accounts, dropping Oakland. It will not add Las Vegas to its handle until the new league year starts in March, according to Josh Dubow of the Associated Press.
The NFL already made the switch, listing the Raiders as just the Raiders with no city attached in its releases last week to announce the 2020 draft order and 2020 opponents of each team.
Perhaps they should become an itinerant pirate team, playing all of its games away all season. That might actually work….
But Las Vegas does appear to be a fitting home for them.
