This is just cliché nonsense. If you live and work in Vegas, it's just a normal place.

Vegas brings out the worst in idiot tourists who go there to tie drinks around their necks and see how black out they can get.


+1. People actuallu LIVE in Vegas. Some people swear they only drink and gamble everyday.

Like saying "Don't go to Oakland, or you'll become a criminal!" Because its one of the most crime ridden cities in America.


You do realize that character concerns was the important part of that statement.

Just put my $100 deposit down for the new stadium. Nervous to see how much they are going to charge for PSL's. Hopefully they will be more like what the Vikings charged $500-$10k as opposed to the 49ers $2000-$80000.

sucks for the people of Oakland...raiders suck all this time and when they finally are good....now, they are leaving....

My only concern is will the Raiders have home field advantage? Will fans of other teams pay to see their team and visit Vegas?

Which could be quite awhile. They have to decide how much to charge for PSLs and actually have final plans for the stadium. I wouldnt doubt if season tickets were sold out the first week they are available. I will be paying for PSLs to a stadium I cant go to for several years.

Lol that's not the same thing though.

I'm so glad I didn't pick a name associated with a player or city (as both the team and I have moved).

There is no state income tax in Nevada so if anything Las vegas would be way more appealing to free agents than any place in california. The players will make more money.

It could be but then again I'm in a booster club in AZ and was in one in Vegas when I lived there and know of a lot of people that are ready to buy. I think you underestimate the market. Especially if it's a good team.

Yeah. I thought it was cool because I like a lot of players with 55/56 so when I joined, i figured i'd choose a young promising player as a good avy.

I find it funny because now the team's about to not be "oak" and sio also isn't on the team Laughing .

If anything, my name is way more hilarious now. Laughing
