Nightlife is just a wee bit better in Vegas vs Brown County.

Also the Packers waited and waited and waited and made their offer at the last minute.

They clearly destroyed the relationship to the point where Adams was happy with less. Both in money and QB.

And given they've just signed Jaire Alexander to a big deal, I suspect they knew what they were doing

"The Packers offered Davante Adams a bigger deal over the first two years than the Raiders did ... he just didn't wanna be there," Rapoport said."

Some actual numbers would be helpful here.  So more money over first two years but how much total and how many years?  Some actual reporting would be nice...

My property tax when I lived there was about $4k annual on a $600k home.

Well, ONE wide receiver the Raiders get from the Packers (or any NFC North team, really) is bound to work out eventually.

You're right.  Vegas is a bit of an outlier because the schools receive funding from hotel taxes.  Most places don't (and really can't) do that.  Texas has high property tax in most places.  Nobody vacations in Amarillo.

Florida taxes the heck out of the tourists too.

I'd imagine he doesn't have to actually own his home in Nevada.

So you're saying you lived like a king there?

The guy grew up as a Raiders fan, and his best friend plays for the Raiders. At some point of "levels of millions of dollars" probably don't matter much.
