The biggest winner in the Raiders’ move to Vegas is Jerry Jones
The Raiders’ move to Las Vegas was approved by a 31-1 vote. The Raiders will be stuck in Oakland while the Vegas stadium is built.
Jerry Jones was heavily supportive of the move, which now eliminates the possibility that the team could move to San Antonio, which would be bad for Jerra’s business. It also helps out his BFF, Ram’s owner Stan Kroenke, by taking a team out of the California NFL logjam.
Jerra is the Frank Underwood of the NFL owner political game, and he came out looking good on the other side of this deal.
The 2-3 year lame duck period the Raiders will spend in Oakland could be a disaster. Roger Goodell has to terrified at the prospect of having a competitive Raiders team playing in front of an empty Coliseum in primetime, or potentially hosting home games in the playoffs.
“Don’t forget the power of the Dallas Cowboys, and the power of Jerry Jones.
This Vegas move is for a lot of reasons. Stan Kroenke didn’t want the Raiders in L.A., and Jerry didn’t want the Raiders in San Antonio. So they end up in Vegas, and suddenly? Gambling? We don’t mind no stinking gambling!“
Questions about Coach Cal are legitimate
Coach Cal and the Wildcats were on the wrong end of a classic against UNC, and Kentucky exited the tournament prior to the Final Four. A large group of media and Kentucky fans think that it’s unfair to hold Calipari to a higher standard than his contemporaries. Colin disagrees. Kentucky has 3-times the players drafted into the NBA over the last – years than the next closest team.
This was a year where the path to the Final Four was easier with many traditional powers either not making the tournament, or falling by the wayside by the Elite 8. The reality is, Calipari and Kentucky are a glamour program. You can’t make that many trips to the NBA Draft Green Room and not have people wondering when you’re going to win your next title.
“I think the questions about Calipari are legitimate. He has three to four times the NBA fire power of the star-studded programs, and once again, can’t win a fourth game.”
