    thats the kind of building they’re talking about – whether its 55k or 65k is not a big issue – SB can still be played at either and will be given if they build (Goodell said so publicly) .. its a moot point – bottom line its a ~$1 billion new stadium wholly owned by the Raiders/NFL… thats a much better deal than simply renting in Vegas in bed with a college team and a Gangster

    No need to buy it from the black market if it is legal in a vape shop.

  • jesusraiderjim

    Right? Tailgate and eat before hand. Hell I’m to cheap to pay 5 dollars for a water. I can suffer for 3 hours

  • PlunkforHOF

    This is why Hwnrdr is a Prince of O.co.

  • Raider Bren

    Right, I’m going to look at that.
    Research and do it right the first time.

  • Dakota

    Hmmmm, 10k fewer fans buying beer, food, tickets and parking every game for the next 30 years might actually be a big deal. And there is zero chance they play a SB in a 55k seat stadium.

  • Dan78

    No… Need to do a weekend plan..

  • ForHundred8

    AKA Mark doesn’t have enough shares to sell me??

    “Would you consider raising your own commitment if the public funding does not come through for $750 million?

    No, because the cost is too high and we won’t be able to do it without that amount. It would increase the required size of the equity investment to the point where it would be unfeasible.”

  • RaiderCODE

    more importantly Raiders need to renegotiate their deal in Oakland – they need to own all stadium operations and a new/newish building where they can charge PSL’s and get new corp sponsors/naming rights – thats *way* more important of how ‘nice’ the stadium is…

  • RaiderCODE

    Goodell *said they would* more than once – and he knows what the plans are….

  • EMRaiders

    Dont worry guys, when Trump is prez, he will build the stadium, and make elway and the broncos pay for it.

  • Dakota

    He didn’t say they would play in a 55k seat mini stadium……post a like if you got ones where he says that.

  • RaiderCODE

    Mark should *never* have to sell shares to get a stadium! Thats preposterous!

    oh wait…

  • ForHundred8

    Even in Carson Mark was going to sell a share to Iger.

  • RaiderCODE

    he said Oakland build a stadium they get a super bowl – he didn’t say ‘but it has to be a certain size’ .. the rules for min size stadiums for SB’s is *very* flexible

  • JLofty

    Your anger is missplaced. You should be tweaked at A’s ownershiip and oakland/alameda pols. NOTHING even gets to proposal with those folks…

  • Really cool article on Yahoo about Sheldon – I know you guys read it but man is he confident he runs that city. LOL

    Love the moxie!

  • RaiderCODE

    And they say there’s no Mafia in Vegas anymore … yeah right..

  • ForHundred8

    All that power and money but he can’t get into the exclusive club of NFL ownership…. yet.

  • Mo Green 2.0

  • JLofty

    You see what he did to a sitting US senator?

  • jesusraiderjim

    Reid?

  • No – link please

  • RaiderCODE

    working on it… watch Mark put Sheldon in his will and Mark commits ‘suicide’….

    “he shot himself in the back of the head and jumped off the top of the stadium, poor guy’..

  • R8RCatDave

    Had dinner with him when he opened the Venitian, most egotistical man I have ever encountered, talked about himself and his exploits for 90 minutes non stop, and he is ugly as sin.

  • Dan78

    Imagine when he shaves Marks bowl cut..

  • My favorite part of the article is when the reporter asks him if he would put his own money in – if all of the 750 million was not approved by voters:

    He was like “No, that’s a bad investment” basically LMFAO

    “No, because the cost is too high and we won’t be able to do it without that amount. It would increase the required size of the equity investment to the point where it would be unfeasible.”

  • Mark’s gonna wake up with Cliff Branch’s head next to him lol

  • MARK is the boss (baby Al)

    Lol

  • “OAK 40 NO 28
    These aren’t your dad’s Raiders. Or your older brother Larry’s Raiders. Or your annoying middle brother who gave up on the team some time during the Andrew Walter era. Who remembers the dynamic days of the AW-fueled engine? Don’t answer that. This 2016 Oakland offense represents a different deal altogether. Even with whatever kinks the Raiders need to work out — like Latavius Murray capitalizing on his opportunities — the Saints will make it easier on them. New Orleans’ defense isn’t there yet. Improving, but not enough to win in Week 1. That is, unless Drew Brees, Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead absolutely light it up. New Orleans’ offensive line might forbid that. #OAKvsNO”

    its like buying a house you cant afford with no money down … then the reality hits and you’re ruined… meanwhile the guy who sold you the house and loan is laughing all the way to the bank…
