Behold! An aerial view of Allegiant Stadium, Las Vegas Raiders fans!
Look at where the Las Vegas Raiders are playing football games this fall.
No longer will the Silver and Black be subjected to a multi-purpose stadium from the 1960s with dirt on the field. They are getting a brand-new home that seemingly every NFL team outside of only a handful will be jealous of. It may look like a Roomba from above, but the Sin City vacuum cleaner is the greatest thing you’ll see on Twitter today. Allegiant Stadium is magnificent!
When you see the aerial shot of this Southern Nevada flying saucer, you have to believe late owner Al Davis is smiling down from Heaven, letting his son Mark Davis know he did a good job. The Raiders wanted to stay in Oakland. We all did. However, economic issues made staying in the Bay Area no longer possible for the NFL’s rebel franchise. They’re getting the home they truly deserve.
One look at Allegiant Stadium says the Raiders are coming to Vegas, baby!
Going to a city with no state income tax will give the Raiders a leg up on recruiting players in free agency they’ve never had before. The stadium will be paid for by hotel taxes from all the tourists coming to Las Vegas to lose some money, get sunburnt poolside and devour some delicious buffet food. There is really no downside here with the Raiders playing in Las Vegas economically.
What’s even cooler is the Mountain West’s UNLV Rebels will call Allegiant Stadium home too. The doormat of a program has had to deal with the hot Las Vegas heat for far too long over at Sam Boyd Stadium. Playing indoors in a state-of-the-art facility might help them compete in their Group of 5 conference.
Let’s not forget about the Las Vegas Bowl and future Super Bowls being played here. With this venue, Las Vegas can now host Super Bowls, Final Fours and anything else metropolises with domed football stadiums can do. This isn’t just a total game-changer for the Raiders, but the entire state of Nevada.
Finally, when you look at Allegiant Stadium from above, it will 100 percent ward off future alien invasions because our intergalactic enemies will see the Sin City spaceship and want no part of it. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Never forget that no matter how long you live. Those are words to live by.
Raiders fans can rejoice knowing their team doesn’t have to play on dirt fields any longer.
