    I’ve sat all over the stadium, but my favorite tickets were the ones on the visitors side about 15 rows up. The rows go up straighter and steeper on the east side so the views are better. The home side is set up in an oval shape because it’s more for the baseball stadium. Black hole is fun for the atmosphere, but they’re endzone seats and not a great view. Its a dump of a stadium in a pretty crappy area, FYI. I would take an Uber or Bart(mass transit) to the game(early to tailgate). Last time I parked by the stadium my rental car was one of about 20 cars in a row with their windows busted out. If this is your first time to the Bay Area enjoy, I love visiting the area(mostly in San Fran).

    It’s good considering he is the only scoring threat on the team so that’s who the opponent focuses on. He is also only 21 years old. Having another decent player or two on that team will help his efficiency out.

    We are obviously paying based on potential and not production up to this point. He has lost two years to injuries, but is still only 22(23 in a week). He has shown some flashes so I am happy to keep him around even if it’s a few mil more per season than I was hoping.

    The NBA is a joke
  5. LeBron James to the Lakers 4 Years/$154M

    I won’t argue that, but there wasn’t stipulations in the OP and KM played for the Lakers. If you’re going based off of time with the Lakers I would argue Robert Horry or Odom. Gasol May be the pick, but I’d go Horry. Not because he was better than Gasol, but the contributions to the Championship teams 3 years in a row.
  6. LeBron James to the Lakers 4 Years/$154M

    Karl Malone
  7. LeBron James to the Lakers 4 Years/$154M

    Kobe wouldn’t play for the Hornets, so they plucked him also. They haven’t drafted a superstar in a long time. They have won their championships with players drafted by other teams. Back in the 70s/80s they did better at drafting.
  8. LeBron James to the Lakers 4 Years/$154M

    Lebron trying to maximize his endorsement $$ while he can. I hate that the Lakers can just pick and pluck guys and don’t really have to be a good organization to get guys they want. Can’t blame him, but I hate how easy it is for the bigger market teams.

    Your sarcasm and timing need work.
  10. Las Vegas Stadium News

    Yeah, just re-read my letter and it says they look forward to seeing me in the coming months, for some reason I thought it said this summer. I will be down there next month(usually down there 1-2 times per year) so I will have to go look again. Last time I was there they had just started moving dirt so there wasnt much to look at.

    There is a Live Cam feed on the Raiders website, FYI. So you guys can see the progress daily. https://www.raiders.com/lasvegas/live-stadium-camera Nice of the Mandalay Bay to install the camera on their hotel. Pretty impressive zoom in ability also. Waiting to get my appointment setup to pick out my seats, the last letter they sent said it should be sometime this summer.
  12. Gruden. He brings energy and discipline, which were lacking last season. This doesn’t mean he will be successful, but I feel our coaching staff as a whole last year was lacking. We will get to see if 2016 was a fluke or if coaching let us down in 2017. Im excited to see several players. I will stick to the high potential players of our draft. Arden Key and Mo Hurst are the two I’m looking forward to seeing the most. If those two work out our D could be pretty decent.
  13. Eagles cut Kendricks (officially signs with Cleveland)

    Pretty sure Eric just signed a $50 mil deal with you, so you should care if he is part of your depth.
  14. Which team improved the most over the offseason? *On Paper

    Lol, our offseason has been interesting, but not even close to the best. I wouldnt say it was awful like some, but it wasnt great by any means. Our draft was a disappointment the first 3 picks and then lots of boom or bust guys after that. I do like the WR moves and I think the coaching staff was the biggest move of the offseason. I dont see our coaching getting worse than what it was last season. I would personally put us around the 18-22 mark as far as best offseasons go.
  15. Jared Goff

    Would you like to expound on that? You felt a reason to make it a thread so a little more info on why would perhaps lead to some discussion.
