((kenneth "hit, tackle, run." )) ((mauricio marin)) kenneth gurule is a broncos fan...but he says that could change if we get an n-f-l team to come to town.

iron barber shop: "i've never really been to a football game before so for sure i'll be there." )) ((mauricio marin)) he first wasn't sure if tax payers should be responsible for helping pay 750-million dollars towards the project. but finding out it would be paid through a nearly one-percent new hotel tax...he's game.

11:07 pm
the stadium debate has people fired up on our facebook page.. christopher writes.. did they vote in favor of spending anything to help education in las vegas? i think we are the worst in education in the country and they keep cutting programs at my daughters school! ----- gary writes.. the tenants, the dome is going to outway the negatives! vegas is finally joining the 21st century!! unlv joins millennial! 3 teams rent! mega events. the place will pay for itself! ------- ultimately it brings jobs and more income to tipped casino employees and more revenue overall for the state so i don't understand all the naysayers./// ((dave courvoisier)) don't forget.. the raiders are still oakland's team.. there is no guarantee the team is coming here. and the mayor of oakland is sounding off tonight. here's the statement from mayor libby schaaf. "as mayor of oakland, it's my job to remain fully focused on what i can do to responsibly keep the team where they belong, here in oakland. while nevada lawmakers consider making the

history by approving a $750 million public subsidy for a facility in las vegas, i will continue to work with the nfl and the raiders' designee larry mcneil to iron out a deal that works for the team, the league, the fans and the taxpayers in oakland." "oakland has a lot to offer to this team and the nfl. the coliseum site is the most accessible and transit-rich location for professional sports in the country, the bay area is a tremendous market for the league both in terms of sports and ancillary development opportuni comparison." ((dave courvoisier)) tonight... we are getting the perspective of a possible raiders move to the valley from perhaps the most high profile owner in the league. jerry jones is the owner of the dallas cowboys.. jones offered up his approval for the rams move from saint louis back to los angeles.. so what does he think of the silver and black in the desert? (( )) jerry jones/cowboys owner; "you have a team with their personality, you have a potential attractive situation foir nevada and las vegas i gave everything i have financially for be involved in the nfl so i'm a good one to be
11:09 pm
involved in the sport and visibility, you add that to what las vegas brings as far as the cashe those one and one make three as far as i'm concerned, i think it's a good thought."
