Allegiant Stadium, the 65,000-seat jewel of Las Vegas, would likely fit somewhere in the 5-7 range. Spectacular won’t be a problem. But history is a developed trait.

The NFL team has identified land capable of accommodating 27,000 parking spaces within 1.5 miles of the stadium site, far more than the 16,250 required by Clark County for games and other events.
The NFL team in a most elegant and respectful manner on Monday fused the most tragic of moments in the town’s history with what is one of its most celebrated and significant.
