Whenever there’s a rumor about someone like Larry Ellison buying the Raiders, the assumption is that Mark Davis will have to sell at some point to avoid a massive estate tax hit when his mother dies.

But that might no longer be a concern for the Davis clan. According to Daniel Kaplan of the Sports Business Journal (last year), the NFL quietly changed ownership requirements to help teams stay within families while avoiding costly estate taxes. Read about it here.

    Was that the all punt game where records were broken for the most amount of punts in a single game?

    I don’t think there’s a frogs fat azz chance in hell the league would approve this.

    No I don’t think he will be better….but Leto will still do a good job without a doubt.

    Which would be hypocritical as hell. What, people are going to start gambling on games as a result of the Raiders moving to Las Vegas?

    That argument was out of date decades ago. Never understood why anybody thought it was a valid one anyway.

    My ex-sister in law dated Steve Wynn. This is a guy that wanted to divert enough water to Las Vegas to turn the entire city into a Venice, with gondolas and everything. He does not think small.
