Once upon a time, not all that long ago, the NFL would not allow players to compete in an arm-wrestling competition in Las Vegas; or award that city the Pro-Bowl. Now they are all in with a franchise based there. What could possibly go wrong with people who work for the team living in that city year-round?
Because players living in Oakland are surrounded by positive influences.
I didn't specify players, and I doubt many if any players lived in Oakland year-round. And if you don't see the massive potential for trouble with all that gambling business and money in Las Vegas well, what can I say.
You didn't mention players? OK, Boomer.
So Oakland wasn't a problem because you doubt they lived there year round but Vegas is going to be a problem because different reasons?
You do realize sports gambling is legal in 16 states now, right? With more to follow soon. All but around 8 or 9 states are moving towards it.
9 teams including the Raiders are in states that have legal sports gambling. If you are talking gambling in general then just about every team lives near a casino. You worried about Aaron Jones spending too much time at the Packers official casino?
