Sin City could be the NFL's next destination.

The 'Las Vegas Raiders' were trending on Twitter Thursday after a casino giant announced a proposal that could lure the NFL to town.

Las Vegas Sands Corp. is leading a group of investors who are proposing to construct a $1 billion domed stadium on 42 acres, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal. The proposal says that the stadium would sit on land near University of Nevada, Las Vegas and would serve as the school's football stadium. It could potentially even be tantalizing enough to attract one of the league's 32 franchises.

Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis is planning to meet with Las Vegas Sands Chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson on Friday "possibly to discuss stadium details," according to the report.

The Raiders attempted to move to Los Angeles earlier this month, but the NFL rejected it.

"We are moving forward with the stadium concept with or without an NFL team," Abboud said Thursday. "We see a lot more opportunities — conference championships, bowl games, NFL exhibition football, boxing, soccer, neutral site games, and music festivals. There is an entire segment out there."

Raiders owner to meet with Vegas magnate, per report

Quote:
ALAMEDA, Calif. -- While a leaked memo from UNLV president Len Jessup said representatives of the Oakland Raiders will be in Las Vegas on Friday to check out potential stadium sites, team owner Mark Davis would offer only a cryptic comment.

"In typical Raider fashion," Davis said with a laugh over the phone from the Bay Area, "I can neither confirm nor deny."

Sources, though, have confirmed to ESPN.com that Davis will be in Las Vegas, and he reportedly will meet with Las Vegas Sands chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson.

The Sands Corp. announced Thursday that it was lending its support to build a $1 billion domed stadium on a vacant 42 acres of land recently purchased by UNLV near the corner of Tropicana Avenue and Koval Lane across from McCarran International Airport.

"Correspondingly, the Sands leadership team let us know that officials from the Oakland Raiders are scheduled to travel to Las Vegas and tour locations around the valley for a potential new home and they have asked us to meet them at our 42-acre site on Friday morning to answer questions about that site," Jessup wrote in the memo, which was first reported by Nevada political reporter Jon Ralston.

UNLV is looking for a new home for its football program, which has played at 35,500-seat Sam Boyd Stadium some nine miles from campus on the eastern edge of the city since 1971.

Report: A potential Raiders move to San Diego is 'very viable'

With the Rams and Chargers winning the Los Angeles NFL sweepstakes, the Raiders are left to fend for themselves as they search for a new home. But one in San Diego could emerge if the Chargers ultimately decide to move to Los Angeles.

The soon-to-be homeless Raiders would reportedly "pounce" on an opening in San Diego. And according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, such a move is "very viable" beginning as early as 2017.

Oakland Raiders officials are expected to meet with Bay Area leaders about the possibility of extending their stay at O.co Coliseum. Such a move could create another year of uncertainty regarding the future of the franchise and where it will ultimately land.

One option that is still on the table for the Raiders is a move to San Antonio. But Alamo City entrepreneur Red McCombs was apparently on the money when he told me the toughest challenge for local leaders working to lure the NFL franchise to South Texas is convincing owner Mark Davis to leave California.

A Sands spokesperson confirmed to FOX5 that plans for a $1 billion domed stadium are moving forward, with or without a team. The stadium would contain at least 60,000 seats. The spokesperson further said the deal would involve a public-private partnership and that developers may request that funds from hotel room taxes be diverted to the project.

I can see the appeal of Las Vegas for Mark Davis, especially all the strip clubs he can visit on a regular basis during the season.

For someone who usually just posts news links and photos, this was an excellent attempt at humour...

Mark thinks of LV as way to classy and formal for his tastes. Remember that the first person to break the Carson proposal was a hostess at Sam's Hofbrau, a strip club in a tough DTLA 'hood.

My link doesn't seem to work but it can be quickly googled with: sam's hofbrau davis stadium

Btw, we've been hearing recently that money talks. Let's see if that works for Sheldon Adelson who is worth more than Kroenke and Paul Allen combined.

So in roughly 24 hours we have the Raiders moving to San Diego, San Antonio, Las Vegas and staying at the Coliseum. Hokay .....

Maybe Mark should start selling franchises.

LV, Oakland, SA, SD. Add a new NFL division to balance the 4 new teams in Europe.

Money only talks when it comes down to who is writing a check. Seems like this LV thing is more about floating the idea that someone other than Adelson is going to write a check.

Hard to imagine that the Sands isn't doing the bulk of the funding. Davis brings the team; UNLV brings the land and team; Sands brings the money. If someone else wants to pay they can join the talks too.

Same post as in the Inglewood Stadium thread.

http://www.reviewjournal.com/busines...-raiders-owner

Majestic Realty! An Ed Roski sighting!

Roski was the money behind the Industry stadium proposal some time ago. It would have been a fabulous site for the Raiders since it was out in the middle of the blue collar, truck and motorcycle part of LA, about 20 miles east of DT. These folks would find it about a 3 hour ride to LV (assuming you keep it under 100).

Steve Wynn apparently wants in and I imagine a number of other billionaires and celebs would too. And at any given time about 1/4 the visitors to LV are from LA.

The whole idea sounds great except for the NFL issue with gambling.

And that might be the only reason I see Goodell shooting it down. He wants the NFL to be about morals, it seems, and I could see him saying this goes against that stance. Not that I agree, but I could see him using it as the reason.

All the other reasons you listed make it the most intriguing city out of the ones given.

Yes, definitely worth a discussion although Adelson is a MAJOR casino owner, the subject of frequent litigation and involvement in complicated and poorly documented deals, and subject to enormous swings in profits depending on the economy. Buddying up with him is taking a very quick jump into the deep end of the gambling pool.

Goodell may be ready for the Inglewood casino but not for a relationship where the NFL becomes the tail instead of the dog.
