Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis is still continuing to make frequent trips to Las Vegas in the search for a potential site for a stadium in the city.
Despite the Oakland Raiders disappointment in the SNITC ruling to recommend $550 million in public funds instead of the hoped $750 million, owner Mark Davis is still infatuated with the Sin City. Continuing to make frequent visits to Las Vegas as the city determines a potential site for a domed stadium to potentially house the Raiders.
ProFootballTalk reported that Las Vegas Sands corp senior vice president Ron Reese told USA Today that Davis has been to the city at least a half dozen times in the past few months as the Raiders continue their interest in relocating to Nevada.
"Nothing has changed on that front in the last few weeks. Las Vegas Sands senior vice president Ron Reese said that Davis has been to the city “a half-dozen times” in the last couple of months and that his company is continuing to work on putting together that stadium plan.“It’s a major investment,” Reese said, via USA Today. “The NFL has expressed a strong desire for a public-private partnership. Our organization is taking the lead, working with the Raiders to create public-private support for this.”"
It is no surprise that Davis is continuing to make frequent Vegas trips as the Raiders are completely all in when it comes to pursuing relocation. Once a site is eventually determined the next step in the Raiders push to a potential relocation vote will be made, and once that happens you can expect even more trips to the Sin City for Davis as he continues to seemingly push his team away from Oakland.
