    Can I get a prop bet on the number of fans in The Black Hole who die of heat stroke during an early season game?

    Vegas is just a bigger version of Stockton with all the foreclosures. Just has a lot more glitz downtown.

    As for fans getting heat stroke, the Cardinals had to deal with Sun Devil Stadium, which metal bleachers throughout the seating bowl.

    That location off Koval is prime position and I'm surprised the land hasn't been developed.

    The silver lining would that the number of players who go broke when they retire will go down because more players will go broke while they're still in the league.

    How well would Vegas draw from other areas?......Phoenix is a jaunt........No Cal already has the Niners and is a pretty good jaunt......LA has the Rams......

    It would be the #1 road trip by far from every opponent. If the Packers played there, they would sell 30,000 tickets to the visitors.

    It would also have something of a built-in fan base as a lot of the Raiders' fans from the L.A. days are Inland Empire/Central Valley people who would have a reasonably straightforward three-hour drive to the stadium. Vegas has also been talking about funding its own train between Vegas and the far outer reaches of L.A.

    It's a good plan and the Raiders have no other good plans.

    Victorville to St. George, plus Kingman and Laughlin/Bullhead City.

    Maybe the Raiders should move to Tahoe, eh?
