The Creator Speaks Out Against Raiders Stadium In Vegas

Governor Brian Sandoval has called a special legislative session which begins today to discuss the possible public financing of a football stadium that would help bring the Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas.

The stadium plans call for the public to fund $750 million over 33 years and would be generated from an increase in taxes on tourists.

The Southern Nevada Tourism and Infrastructure Committee (SNTIC) approved the plan to be sent up to the legislature where they will now decide whether or not to give it the green light. Throughout the process there has been plenty of noise coming from both sides of the issue, but one voice that had been noticeably absent was that of The Creator, the man who stepped up to help bring the NHL to Las Vegas without using a single dime of public money.

I’m not going to be politically correct here, but I believe if you are going to spend $750 million of the public’s money, it should be on policemen, firefighters and teachers. -The Creator

NFL Has “No Impact Whatsoever” On NHL’s Decision

The Raiders to Las Vegas garbage doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon. The Southern Nevada Tourism and Infrastructure Committee met again yesterday to discuss the (now) $1.6  billion domed stadium.

I’ve voiced my concern on how a second team in Las Vegas could impact the first coming in, but I’d never go so far as to say the NFL relocation rumors to Las Vegas should be of any concern to the NHL. Well, Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly appears to agree.

When asked whether the possibility of the Raiders moving to Las Vegas would impact the NHL’s plans one way or the other, deputy commissioner Bill Daly responded to by email, “No impact whatsoever. Doesn’t even enter the equation.” When asked whether the possibility of having another league in Las Vegas might cause the owners to reconsider Las Vegas, he said, “Doubtful.” -Ken Campbell,

The NHL’s been exploring Vegas for a lot longer than these Raiders rumors have been around, and they are certainly not going to let the NFL rob them of the $500 million The Creator is ready to fork over.
