Love or hate his team, Jerry Jones owns the most juice of all NFL owners when the doors close and major decisions are to be made.
Five days after a special legislative session to consider public financing for a $1.9 billion domed stadium began, Las Vegas stood far closer to landing an NFL franchise than anyone ever imagined possible.

A rent of $250,000 per game — $1.5 million over a traditional season of six home games — has been floated as a possible number. It’s also a price that falls in line nationally with other college programs that play in NFL stadiums.
