Raiders to Las Vegas:

Oakland refused to give the Raiders a football stadium to play in, preferring an old baseball stadium, so the Raiders have finally given up and decided to move to Las Vegas.  Awaiting them there will be a brand new, billion dollar stadium built just for them.  A football stadium this time around, not dual use.

It also means Nevada will get its first pro football team, compared to California which still has three other teams -- the L.A. Chargers, the L.A. Rams and the San Fransisco 49ers.  San Fransisco is also just a few miles away from Oakland so there's no reason why they couldn't have just cheered for the 49ers from the beginning.  California has way too many teams and is way too coddled by the NFL, and this is a slight redress to that issue.

This is the last of the NFL franchise moves.  All the teams are now content with their stadiums.  Though you have to wonder how long the Jacksonville Jaguars will be content with such small supporting crowds. . . But at least there are no bad stadiums in the NFL any longer.

Meanwhile, I finished reading Baccano volume 10.  This is good timing, too, because Hataraku Maou-sama! volume 13 is nearly finished translating, so I can just switch over to that once it's out.
