the prospects of the nfl's oakland raiders relocating to las vegas sounds remote.... but sheldon adelson is willing to take at shot at that possibility. today .. the sands corporation owner reportedly met with mark davis, owner of the raiders, who is looking for a new home for his team. fox5's les krifaton joins us live from tropicana and koval the site of the proposed stadium. les what's the buzz on the street? the whole idea seems outrageous given the nfl attitude toward las vegas and gaming. but sheldon adelson is behind a proposed stadium that would be built here and he's looking for a tenant besides the unlv rebels and he's thinking an
