One day after billionaire business mogul Sheldon Adelson pulled the plug on his financial backing of the proposed Raiders stadium in Las Vegas, Goldman Sachs — the next chief financial backer — followed suit.
A source familiar with the $1.9 billion stadium deal told NBC Bay Area that the investment bank is not committed to financially supporting the stadium deal unless future proceedings seat Adelson at the table.
The latest twist in the East Bay franchise's attempt to head to Las Vegas puts the proposed exodus up in the air.
The Raiders, who officially submitted relocation papers earlier this month, have committed $500 million to the stadium's construction. Las Vegas has chipped in $750 million via hotel tax revenue. Adelson had promised $650 million to fund the Las Vegas stadium, before abruptly ditching the deal Monday.

Rashaan Melvin said his goodbyes to the Raiders after the Lions announced a deal that would bring the cornerback to the team.
But Melvin's farewell to the Silver and Black was a bit of a sad one. Melvin said he felt as though he cheated the fans:
This, of course, appeared to be more of him not feeling as though he played to his potential. Playing for the Raiders had been a dream of his.
Melvin only started in seven games last season which could be partly why he's feeling the way he's feeling.
"To all my guys in the locker room, I appreciate you guys for making the year special through everything."

And anything sports-related and bring Drake into the mix is very much appreciated.
It appears Brown is more than happy with his decision to sport silver and black.
