    Re: Allegiant Stadium in Vegas ...

    Interesting story here ...
    https://www.reviewjournal.com/busin...-ready-to-raise-raiders-stadium-roof-1837761/

    Saw one of those roof cables on one of the local channel feeds ... pretty impressive. The science behind those addresses everything engineers have learned since the GG Bridge cables were first strung. They are not as thick now, but the tensile strength of those things is astounding. Once buckled across the roof, those cables are unbreakable, and that structure won't tip outwards, what with the counter balance of the cables pulling against itself. I'd love to see them install that stuff. Always like seeing things like that.

    Yeah, same. Interesting operation..state of the art. Looks good. I'm just happy there's a roof. Definitely a fan base that deserves an indoor venue..well, indoor with some outdoor features ( glass lid and natural grass). Could eventually rank among the loudest venues in the league, certainly the AFC. Not a ton of indoor venues in the AFC..just Indy and Houston, compared to 7 or 8 indoor venues in the NFC.

    I do wonder if the RAIDERS and the NFL are eventually going to bump heads over that sliding glass door and when it should be opened/closed. Closing it is better for home field advantage..opening it is better for " the show " with the strip as the backdrop. I remember MLB forcing the Astros to open their roof against the White Sox in the WS because it was " better for the show ". Astros had a much better record with it closed, so they made a little stink..and of course, lost the WS. Keeping that sliding glass door closed could be the difference in winning and losing some important games

    So the Seahawks were a serious suitor for AB after he was released. The same Seahawks that just " reset the culture " in their locker room after Carroll/Bevell fucked over the team against the Pats in the SB. Holier than thou Russell Wilson to super-diva AB? Seems legit.

    RAIDERS tried to trade AB..allowed teams to contact AB to rewrite his contract..found no takers. So they did try to keep AB off the Pats..somewhat I guess, but no one wanted to help out.

    That was an enjoyable game to watch. Loved the "Fuck AB" chants.

    Raiders schedule is as brutal as I've ever seen. This team is going to be much improved from last season, but probably still post an ugly record.

    A top 10 pick with our pick and a top 20 with Chicago's pick is ok with me though

    Keep building.

    They better get a break with the schedule the 1st year in Vegas. Keep developing Waller, Key, Doss and the lower round/undrafted finds.

    Waller is the hot name @ TE in fantasy football right now..see a lot of people believing in what they saw. I remember him catching a drag and almost going the distance last year against Cincy, but really thought nothing of it

    There's actually a chance Conley might play Sunday

    Welp ... AB just cannot stay out of the limelight, can he?

    https://sports.yahoo.com/report-antonio-brown-accused-of-raping-his-former-trainer-003725076.html

    New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown stands accused of raping his former trainer in a lawsuit filed in a federal court in Florida.

    The New York Times first reported the lawsuit which accuses Brown of three separate incidents of sexual assault and rape against Britney Taylor, a gymnast he met while attending Central Michigan and later hired as his trainer. The accusations were made in a lawsuit filed Tuesday in a federal court in Florida.

    The suit alleged that two incidents occurred in June 2017 and another in May 2018.

    So even the Pats can't control the news cycle with AB. Then again they did have a psychopath on their roster so this is just child's play for them.

    In New England, rape anyone, but NOT Giselle. She's off limits.

    Dude...you know Brady is Giselle's bitch. And kissing your child full on the lips is creepy as hell.

    I'm sure Giselle pegs him on a regular basis.

    Jon Abram - torn rotator cuff and labrum
    Potentially out for the season.
    Take Conley instead.

    Man, the way Abram plays, I just hope this isn't going to be the story of his career. Don't know if he was going to be the heart of the D this season, but they are going to miss his attitude/motor. This is just bad. He was everywhere making a difference on Monday, handing out hits. Smh 4.4 speed and physicality..no replacement for that

    Abram to IR, season likely over
    Business about to pick up for undrafted rookie slot corner Keisan Nixon..Joyner probably moving to full time safety..or Riley will just slot in at safety
    Probably both
