(Wayne Allyn Root, Las Vegas Review-Journal) – It’s official. The famous Oakland Raiders — one of the most storied franchises in sports history — are moving to Las Vegas!
What great news for Las Vegas. I never loved the public financing deal. I think the tourists got hosed with massive room taxes. I don’t believe anyone was there negotiating for the taxpayers.
But despite all of that, I’m thrilled to welcome the Las Vegas Raiders. I think NFL football will be great for Vegas. A grand slam home run. A touchdown in the final seconds. We just became a big-league town. Our image has been elevated and our property values just went up.
This news all comes at the same time the latest Census stats are out. Guess who is No. 1 in population growth?Vegas, baby!
