A “Yes” Vote on the Raiders’ Move to Las Vegas Appears Imminent, But It’s Still a Bad Idea
NFL owners are meeting in Phoenix this week, and all signs suggest they will vote to approve the Oakland Raiders’ move to Las Vegas today, March 27. Although $750 million in public funds to build a state-of-the-art stadium in Sin City does sound really nice, that doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. In fact, the decision to allow the Raiders to move Las Vegas would be, a terribly short-sighted action that is more likely to fail miserably than succeed.
