A Las Vegas sports writer says that having an NFL team is going to be good for football fans, even if they're not part of Raider Nation.

"I think it opens up the door for the average NFL fan to maybe see the Chargers in town, see the Patriots in town, see the Cowboys, and I think that's a great opportunity for the locals as well," said Jason Pothier of SinBin.vegas.

He also says having both the Raiders and the Vegas Golden Knights will bring out competitiveness and make both teams want to play better because neither will want to be the loser in town.
