    Watch live: Oakland City Council votes on plan for A's stadium (mercurynews.com)

    “For the A’ s, the council vote will signal whether the city is willing to do all it can to keep the team in Oakland, which already has seen the Raiders and then the Golden State Warriors leave. For the city, the stakes are also high as it tries to balance the team’s interest with those of taxpayers while making sure it gets affordable housing and community benefits out of the deal.”

    My "gut" feeling is that the A's are using Vegas more for leverage than actually wanting to relocate there. I mean, things could change, but the Las Vegas Sports Authority has drained their reserve on Allegiant already and there are serious doubts about bond funding for yet another Stadium.

    Still, it only takes one set of local politicians to go crazy and offer a team the moon in order to get their name engraved on a plaque and a stadium built that they view as their legacy so who knows?
