NV could raise the $750 million from out of state by causing Sheldon Adelson to stop opposing legal online sports betting.  I would pay a NV  state surcharge to bet legally online with a NV sports book.

That stadium is going to generate billions in revenue from all the football fans flying in to Vegas to watch Derek Carr go 7-9.

Yeah, why not build the stadium with the stipulation that all revenues (minus overhead) go to education for X years? Seems fair

He's a REPUBLICAN.

Did the Raiders miss a campaign donation payment or something?

Sheldon Adelson bought an entire goddamned newspaper just so he could push his own agenda about not legalizing marijuana (and other things).

The Democrat candidate is calling for the same thing. Nevadans want the stadium. It's already been voted on. They need to find something else to hang their hat on, really.

You mean take that money and buy a diploma for your dipstick of a kid, right? That's what republicans really mean when they say they are 'investing in education'

"Unfortunately, supporters of this deal wrote it so that Nevada voters and leaders can't unwind it now."

So, if this is true, then it'd just be empty talk anyway.  Yippee.


Pangit: Nevadans want the stadium.


Probably a byproduct of that education ;)

He really needs to get on the cart.

Possibly. I mean it IS the Raiders afterall. But to be fair they're about as classy as Fremont St downtown, so probably a match made in heaven.

They're free to build their own stadium somewhere else...

Teams need cities more than vice versa.

And to stop the paper investigating him / publishing those investigations, if I'm remembering a podcast correctly.

Because the legislature will then take the money currently used for education, strip the amount equal to what comes from the revenue, and give a tax break to the Raiders equal to that exact amount. Amazing how accounting works.

It was also heavily featured in the back half of that Hulk Hogan Gawker Netflix documentary Nobody Speak.

In Florida, most of the people fighting this are Republican.  Not sure how it is in other states.  Florida has an outlier Republican party.

Can't be true.  All Republicans are evil and drink the blood of babies.  There is no variation.

//Or so I've read here.

Yeah like when VA started the lottery it all was supposed to go to roads and schools...

 For who? The citizens that ponied up the $750 mil ?
Or maybe the Football team.
  I can't believe US cities are still doing these stadiums on the public dime.

Sometimes it's the blood of puppies or kittens, but what you said is essentially true.
