Fans from Portland, Oregon would love the Raiders to move to their city.
According to KGW News in Portland, fans want their governor to actually try and lure the Raiders to their city.
“NFL to Oregon” recently posted a petition to Gov. John Kitzhaber on Change.org, asking the state to at least begin exploring the possibility.
“Bringing an NFL team to Oregon would dramatically increase the footprint of this state, bring tax revenue, create jobs and create a multi-use venue that would increase tourism. Portland is the nation’s largest metropolitan area that is served by only one of the Big Three Major League sports organizations,” the petition reads.
On its website, the group prominently shows Oakland Raiders fans and points out that the Raiders have reportedly hinted at moving.
What’s really sad is that they don’t know the name of Raiders owner Mark Davis.
Portland doesn't even know the name of the Raiders owner. Lmao!
