Transcript for Oakland sues Raiders, NFL over team's planned move
And now to a football fight but this one is off the field. The city of Oakland is now sng the raiders and the NFL over the team's planned 2020 move to las Vegas calling it illegal. T.J. Holmes is here and, T.J., one of the things at stake is where will the raiders play next year. The Oakland raiders might end up being the fill in the blank raiders for next season. They don't know where they'll play. This came about because last Ders announced that they would be leaving the city of Oakland and they were going to go to Vegas, essentially Oakland was outbid by Las Vegas. Now they have made good, the city of Oakland on a threat to sue over that move. Look at what the mayor of Oakland just tweeted out yesterday calling the NFL a billionaire boys club that ditched Oakland out of sheer greed. They go on to call the NFL a cartel and say some of their practices are bribes in the lawsuit they've put forward. This all came about because it had a lot to do with money. The city in the lawsuit is now saying it cost us hundreds of millions of dollars to try to keep this team. We're going too lose out on hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue generated by the team being here but in the lawsuit, hey, we don't want you. You can go. Just like -- We want our money. I don't want you back but you're not going to leave me empty-handed in the process. They were supposed to stay in Oakland until the 2020 season so now we got a season left. What are they going to do? I'm not going to pay you rent to fund your lawsuit against me? We do not know. I guess we'll keep our eye out. The Oakland raiders and L.A. Raiders and back to the Oakland raiders now the Las Vegas raiders. They have commitment issues. So any city that gets the raiders, just know 10 or 15 years down the road I'll be sitting here telling this story again. It could happen again. All right, thank you, T.J.
