NFL Sends Memo to Teams Regarding Raiders and Las Vegas Saturday, Jan. 30 Albert Breer of NFL Network passed along the NFL's message to teams regarding the Raiders' interest in Las Vegas:

There have been reports over the last day about a proposal to construct a new stadium in Las Vegas in connection with a possible move of the Raiders to Las Vegas. If your club owner or executives are asked about this, there is no need to comment. If any comment is offered, please keep the following points in mind:

1. All decisions regarding the location of teams are made by the full membership. Three-fourths of the member clubs must approve any team move.

2. No proposal made to the league. It would be speculative to suggest that your club would or would not support such a proposal. If such a proposal is made, it would be considered under the league's relocation policies.

Those standards are well-known, having just been applied in connection with relocation proposals to Los Angeles.
