The man in charge of building the new NFL stadium in Las Vegas doesn’t know much about football, but his history with the Raiders has earned him an invaluable level of trust.
Moving game to Las Vegas stadium for 2020 and 2021, in a time when National Finals Rodeo owns the city in early December, won’t guarantee a spike in interest.
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.
It doesn’t mean this is a guaranteed financial jackpot for the city, but the fact Las Vegas probably would only host a few games is a plus in this manner.
