    Raiders move to Las Vegas

    The Oakland Raiders are moving to Las Vegas, and the State's biggest legal brothel owner is pouncing on the opportunity to enhance his business.

    “I am happy to claim my place as the official prostitution provider to one of the NFL’s most storied franchises.”
    Dennis Hof said his seventh brothel, with the planned name of Pirate’s Booty Sports Brothel, will offer half-off sex parties to Raiders players and staffers.

    Here's a take....they should play their games on Saturday.
    Half of the fans will be away team fans and most have to fly back on Sunday.

    It is going to very interesting, the whole thing

    Really good article on the inside of the move, Jerry Jones was the mover and shaker:

    The inside story of how owner Mark Davis moved the Raiders to Las Vegas
    A woman won The Nobel Peace Prize? Must have been a pretty good sandwich.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. Won't be much of a home field advantage for them.
    Get out there in the game, don't sit up in the bleachers. That is the philosophy of pimps and preachers.

    It's amazing that Las Vegas has gone so long without a major NFL team or maybe they've never had one? Not quite sure, this franchise model of sports teams is a bit odd anyway for us over the water.

    Never had one, or any other major professional team. Now they're getting football and hockey. Will be interesting to see how it works out.

    I visited Vegas almost 10 years ago, back when it was still a fun place to go, and before the utter dominance of smart phones and social media on the minds of 20-something party goers. I only indulged in a little bit of gambling on my next to last day there, but still found plenty of opportunities for amusement. (Was with a female friend, so didn't bother with the strip clubs or hookers.) The article linked above paints a fairly bleak picture of the current scene, with Millenials constantly engrossed by their phones. I wonder if an NFL franchise may be too little & too late.

    Well the casinos may not to well but the clubs and restaurants are packed to the rafters every day.
    So I don't know if that makes up for loss gambling revenue but people are down and spending big money

    Barely makes a decimal point in the total income.

    As I understand it, the gaming revenues are far, far greater than any of the other "attractions and venues". Bill could no doubt speak to this with more authority than I, as I've never been involved in the business. I seldom even visit "The Strip".

    In Nevada, gaming is just about everywhere. You'll see the electronic "video poker" machines in almost all bars and many of the local retailers...a BIG source of revenue for these businesses. A few months back, I was amazed to see a bank of video machines in a small neighborhood laundromat! 555

    I have a friend who owns two 7-11's, and each has a bank of 5 video games (25cent or dollar bets). He doesn't count the actual store sales as anything but covering the overhead costs. And he "clears" an average of over $24,000 per month off of the video poker machines in the two stores.

    Speaking of covering overhead, I remember reading where a CEO of one of the biggest grocery retailers here stated that the small gaming rooms (14 video games) in his stores, completely covered his overhead utility costs. That is basically the electricity bill, which must be massive while being open 24/7, and lighting and air conditioning running constantly in a huge super-market.

    Incidentally, it's not the "high roller" rooms or table games that bring the biggest profits to the casinos. From what I've read, the big money comes from the slot machines and video games. The business model has changed over the years, just like the airlines. Now it's all about volume.

    I think that Mr. Jones should get "full comp's" at the new whorehouse, then! 5555

    Isn't betting on local teams in Nevada banned, including UNLV?
