Officials in Oakland, in a bid to keep their National Football League team the Raiders from moving to Las Vegas, have voted to work with a group seeking to build a $1.3 billion stadium, according to local media. Raiders owner Mark Davis, who is dissatisfied with the team's aging Coliseum stadium in Oakland, has for much of this year pursued a possible move to Las Vegas. Retired NFL player Ronnie Lott is leading an effort to raise money to build a $1.3 billion stadium in Oakland, a city of more than 400,000 people across the bay from San Francisco.
