Take a look at their owner, the botched rollout and the lies he's already told about their logo.

The Quebec Nordiques would have managed to unveil their logo and uniforms without incident. 

 

Also they wouldn't be run by a guy who thinks his team is the army.

NCAA doesn't host championship events in Nevada and last year's proposal by the MWC to do so never made it to full membership for a vote.

 

So no on a soccer team, and no on the Final Four.  Neither is going to happen.

2023 is the next date available to host a Final Four (or any NCAA championship, for that matter) so the membership has until 2021 to change policy as bid books are out 36 months out

We don't even know how much fan support the Raiders will get in Las Vegas... hell, it's the same thing for the adjective Knights. This city hasn't even been tested yet and they already have TWO professional sports teams. I guess the Raiders already have an established fanbase (unless this move cripples it a little), but not in Las Vegas.

 

Oh, and another worst case scenario is if the Raiders go by Vegas just to match the Knights. I shudder at the possibility.

Raider fans from LA make the flight every gameday.  I'm sure there'll be no issues at all getting fans from LA and the Bay Area to make the flight for a Vegas weekend with a Raider game.

This is a weird situation ain't it? The Las Vegas Raiders of Oakland?

 

"We are relocating, but not really. I mean kinda for sure, but in like 2 years or so. We're just gonna crash on the couch if that's cool."

 

Its gonna be cool to see the game in my city, but holy hell did legislation get conned on the deal. How the hell are they gonna give up almost a billion when our schools are a wreck in the northern part of the city. I love Vegas, Summerlin, and Henderson a lot and the NFL in town would be great. That's a hefty price to pay though.

Well the foundation is already cast for Arco park.And if you build Arco park 30 years late you could always woo the A's.Funny,if the Vegas deal falls thru the Raiders could always crash the Arco park party.Ironic.

The room tax money for the stadium and convention center started being collected on March 1 by Clark County. The public commitment is capped by law.  If the Raiders don't move, the Senate Bill allows a smaller stadium can be built for UNLV, if the school can raise $200M.

If the university cannot raise their share, the Convention Center will receive full amount of the stadium tax with the possibility of Clark County schools getting a share, pending future legislative approval.

You ever get tired of kids asking their teachers "when are we going to need this in real life"? Well, what's more real-life than working in construction?
