LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Pace Lattin is an online marking and tech consultant. He said about a year ago, he bought 10 different Raiders website domains. 

"I purchased them for a few dollars," he said. Fast forward a year later, and with the Raiders' move on the horizon, those domains are now worth thousands of dollars. 

His sites however, include little mention of football.

"This is a story about how traffic will suck," he said, pointing to a post on the site. Lattin called his sites "a form of political protesting." With a child in the Clark County School District, he said he's upset one billion dollars (or more) is going to football and not his child's education. 

"We are giving a billion dollars to the Raiders, instead of teachers," he said. 

And even though his domains are worth top dollar, Lattin said trying to make a difference is worth a whole lot more. 

"Our schools need money. Players don't," he said.
