PHOENIX – The Raiders got the official OK to relocate to Las Vegas as NFL owners reportedly voted 31-1 on Monday in approval of the franchise’s move from Oakland, Calif., a place the team has called home for 45 of its 58 seasons of existence in the AFL and NFL. The Raiders needed 24 of 32 votes to win approval.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter was first to report the vote, with the lone dissent coming from the Miami Dolphins.
In a somewhat somber tone, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell expressed regret at not finding a solution that kept the team in Oakland.
