Anti-Las Vegas banner flies at Oakland Coliseum
An anti-Las Vegas banner flew over the Oakland Coliseum ahead of the Raiders-Broncos game on Sunday.
According to the Denver Post’s Nicki Jhabvala, a plane flew over the stadium carrying a banner with a message that said: “Vegas — If you build it we won’t come!!!”

It’s unclear exactly who was responsible for the banner, but it appears to be a reference to the ongoing situation concerning the Raiders’ potential move to Las Vegas.
Las Vegas recently approved a measure to use public funds to help build a stadium that would potentially house an NFL team, such as the Raiders.
Some fans in Oakland would not be happy about losing the team.
