According to an interview with USA Today, Robert Kraft the New England Patriots owner is very supportive when it comes to the idea of the Oakland Raiders heading to Las Vegas.
“I think it would be good for the NFL,” Kraft told USA TODAY Sports. “I know Mark Davis has tried so hard in Oakland. If they won’t do it … I want to support him.”
Kraft says the idea of having a team in Las Vegas is not a big issue like it would have been a couple years ago.
“I came into the league in ’94. Back then, any exploration of that market was dismissed out of hand. I’m looking where we are today and thinking of the last 10 to 15 years, and the emergence of new media, with Google and Facebook and the like. We’re just living in a different world, technology wise. The risks in Vegas are no longer exclusive to Vegas.”
