After the Oakland Raiders won their relocation vote to Las Vegas 31-1, there has been a lot of talk amongst Raider Nation to boycott the remaining games in Oakland. Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green agrees.
Green, who is known for being outspoken, says he “wouldn’t attend a game for the next three years.”
Green, who has played in Oakland his entire career, feels the move is absolutely ridiculous and feels terrible for the Oakland fan base that he knows well.
He thought the Raiders move to Vegas would be similar to the Lakers leaving Los Angeles, the Celtics leaving Boston, the Cowboys leaving Dallas and the Packers leaving Green Bay.
Any historic franchise like the Oakland Raiders should never leave their home market once, let alone twice.
