As Raiders move cities, what’s the future of the fan base? 4.5

The NFL is known for its legion of dedicated fan bases, like Cleveland's Dawg Pound, the Bills Mafia in Buffalo and the Terrible Towel-waving fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers. But one group takes it to another level. We're talking about the infamous silver-and-black clad fans of Raider Nation. With the team playing its last game in Oakland Sunday before moving to Las Vegas, Dana Jacobson met up with some of the Raiders' most hardcore fans to see what their future with the team might be.

Each weekday morning, "CBS This Morning" co-hosts Gayle King, Anthony Mason and Tony Dokoupil deliver two hours of original reporting, breaking news and top-level newsmaker interviews in an engaging and informative format that challenges the norm in network morning news programs. The broadcast has earned a prestigious Peabody Award, a Polk Award, four News & Documentary Emmys, three Daytime Emmys and the 2017 Edward R. Murrow Award for Best Newscast. The broadcast was also honored with an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia Award as part of CBS News division-wide coverage of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Californians are leaving the state due to overpriced housing and insane taxes and more....if I were a Raiders fan I would use this as a perfect excuse to sell my house in California and use the profits to buy a new house in Vegas.

Citing the raiders record, the fans do not have a single effect on the opposing team.
