The Las Vegas Domed Stadium: Touchdown Or Fumble?

 

The Raiders are coming. 

The hotel tax to pay for the public portion of the new stadium is in place. The site has been picked. And fans can put a deposit on seats. 

But as they say - the devil is in the details - and those details are still being worked out, including stadium parking, the agreement with UNLV and the team's community outreach portion. However, construction is expected to start this winter with the Raiders expected to move in by the 2020 season. 

Nevada Public Radio has covered the issue through interviews with the principals, lawmakers, national experts, and commentaries by John L. Smith, a longtime observer of all things Las Vegas.
