If they allow fans. In California, public officials are starting to say there will no fans or even sports allowed until Thanksgiving, at the earliest.

 

If California disallows like they do a lot of things (other than paying lots of taxes) and other states don't California teams will play elsewhere.

Bad sponsor? What do the Raiders care?  As long as Allegiant is handing over millions of dollars a year, Davis will be happy.  If Allegiant goes belly up, there will be any number of companies fighting over whose name goes on the stadium next. 

 

I know the only thing that matters is the cold hard cash. I'm just saying Allegiant Airlines has a HORRIBLE reputation for poor quality and service. Maybe it actually fits..

I've heard that a couple times now, but I haven't seen it in writing anywhere. I'm working the PGA Championship, and this week it was rescheduled for early August...still in SF.

I don't think the NFL will take this by a case by case basis. The commissioner and NFLPA will want all teams to be united in however things play-out IMO. That would mean the very real possibility of no fans at all to start the season at least.

Nothing is in writing anywhere. Everything is constantly changing and being re-evaluated. The governor though has made comments that right now he does not really see stadiums being filled come September. But again, we are in a fluid situation so who knows what things will look like come summer and early fall.

I just looked it up.

 

Allegiant is paying $25M A YEAR for the naming rights.

 

For some perspective, New Era pays the Bills $5M/year

:o

And if I recall "Rich Stadium" cost just under $21 Million to build the entire stadium, parking etc. back in 1972-73

That's the modern equivalent of 122M.  Still dirt cheap in comparison.

You cant even build a High School stadium for $122M today tho.

 Then the Bills will get to play SF at a neutral site!

...and New Era shut down their factory in Derby, NY last year.   I guess the Bills stadium sponsor would also be considered having a bad reputation in WNY.   😉

People keep calling it that and I'm like HAVE YOU EVEN SEEN STAR WARS? THE DEATH STAR IS GREY!! ;aklsdjf;klakjdf;a


dneveu, only 150 times with my kids.  Stop being so literal.  It’s the metaphor with the aforementioned team.  If you want to yell with all caps, how about sending me a PM.  childish.  Have a good day and I saw the original in the movies.  Not sure if you can say that in 1976, and so on.  Stop being silly.  It was more about the Empire of the Patriots over the last 20 years.

It really does look like it should be a Raiders' stadium.

 

It is very impressive.  That is what $1.9 B will get you.

 

I wonder what the final price tag with be for the Rams' stadium.  Last time I heard, it was about $5 B.

Yes, I just had to view several web pages to figure out why it was being called that. I dont see the resemblance. I consider myself a pretty big Star Wars fan, that can answer most any trivia about the movies (esp. the OT)

I went to vegas twice at the start of the year. The under construction stadium looks amazing in person. I can’t wait and hope to see the finished product when the Bills play there when the world starts moving again.
