Dude you didnt stop giving me shit,you STILL are.All the more reason to be confidant the vegas stadium will not be ready for the 2020 season because the media initially in 2016 when the Rams moved back to LA were also saying Inglewood would be ready for the 2019. season,how did that one turn out? I had my doubts back then as well thinking the media was being too optimistic with their 2019 prediction,so many things can go wrong in these projects causing a delay.The LA stadium is still scheduled to be ready for the 2019 season right?damn straight it WILL be neccessary.LOL Dont fall for the media propaganda,it will never be ready by the regular season.Hey McRocket it is comedy gold that people here are saying LA RAM is the one full of shit saying the Vegas stadium will not be ready in 2020.
Here is proof only an idiot would think the vegas stadium will be ready that year.again here is a recent pic of it under construction.the next football season after this year will just be a year and a couple of months away from now,does THIS stadium look like its making progress to be ready by then?
Lets now take a look at the Inglewood stadium that is right on track to be ready that same year. This article from 2018 says it was 40% ready back then
THIS one from jan 2019 says it is 60% ready,they look like THEY are making good progress,vegas is not.all the ingleowood stadium has lef to do is atach the roof,thats it.
dont you agree this stadium DOES look ready for 2020?
New video shows Rams' stadium in Inglewood is 60 percent done
this stadium DOES look rwady by 2020 to go.
There's a better picture of the Vegas one.
And remember we are talking about two completely different stadiums. LA is a 5 billion dollar stadium, Vegas is building a 1.8 billion dollar one.
I heard Vegas is determining when/if they will need to start a 3rd shift to open Aug 4th, but so far that isn't necessary.
Not sure if construction goes the same as the plant I started, but there the ground work and steel framing went PAINFULLY slow. Then poof, it was skinned and looked almost done in a month. It was amazing how we went from sticks to a real looking building.
Look at the inglewood stadium,they got the roof ready for attachment,this one doesnt have that ready.
theres a REASON why sam farmer made this statememnt about it recently.LOL

Looks a little quiet on that Raiders construction site. Better step it up.
Farmer has NOT said that about the Ingelwood site cause IT is right on schedule.
Sam Farmer is the most objective sportswrtier i know, he calls it like he sees it and like i said,he hasnt been saying that about Inglewood that they better step it up.there is a REASON for that.
I was just giving you crap. It will be interesting to see if they make it.
As for the name, I don't ever think Modell really cared about the Browns name and logo which is why he didn't fight for it. Not really a fan favorite logo (outside Cleveland), where as the Raider one I think carries more "cool" factor throughout the US.
I don't really see any legal merits to their case. If Amazon moves from Seattle, I don't think they should have to change their name. Their lease expired, and they didn't want to stay, and not like the Raiders is solely an Oakland team. It's an anti-trust suit that free movement of an owner of his business can't move of his own will (kinda the opposite of an anti-trust case).
It seems their case is built on NFL teams giving favoritism to cities without NFL teams over current NFL cities. Or that other owners are enriching themselves by getting relocation money from the raiders. But that payment literally goes against the antitrust theory because the Raiders have to spend 370 million or whatever to leave. That's not an incentive from the league to move.
MAYBE it could be used as a method to pressure the Raiders to settle, knowing dirty laundry might be aired. But even then, I still don't see the Raiders giving up their name. It's tough to say the NFL pressured the Raiders to move, when for the Raiders to move, they had to pay the NFL 378 million to do so.
I dont know where you heard that about Modell and the NFL but thats entirely false,where did you hear that?
thats not accurate at all that Modell.Modell faught tooth and nail to bring the name and logo to baltimore only settling out of court in an out of court settlement with cleveland to leave the name and logo in cleveland once the city threatened a lawsuit against Modell and the NFL. I know someone who posts here that has lived in cleveland all his life and is a browns fan and he remembers that vividly that thats what happened. Plus i have called up sportswriters up in cleveland tha were around that day and they have told me the same thing,so when people start muttering that crap,i know they making stuff up out of their ass. Not saying YOU are,i think you have just been misinformed,but posters in general.
that again is WHY i am confidant the raiders name and logo will remain in oakland cause oakland has an even stronger case against the NFL than cleveland did. after both the rams and Oilers left LA and Houston back in 95,NFL relocation bylaws got much more strict and much ,ore tougher. That was why cleveland fought against modell and the NFL back then and won cause had it been in 95 when the rules were not in place yet,Modell WOULD have been able to easily leave cleveland AND take the name and colors like he wanted to.
Read post# 2 on this thread and watch the two videos i posted.
Breaking. Oakland has ALSO filed a lawsuit against corrupt NFL.yahoo!!!
It proves oakland has a VERY strong case against davis and the NFL.
three trolls posted funnys there because they knew they could not counter the evidence in it,they didnt even try as you can see knowing they were taken to school by me.
you cant just up and move an NFL franchise anymore at the drop of a dime,you got NFL relocation rules and bylaws in place now that you got to follow.the Rams THEY followed those NFL relocation bylaw rules.mark davis on the other hand did NOT and him and the NFL are in serious trouble whether you realise it or not.
anytime i point this out the vegas lovers always retreat going back to the 1980's talking about how al davis won a court case against the NFL and moved them to LA blah blah blah blah always IGNORING that NFL relocation bylaw rules were not in place back then like they are now. those pro vegas people who always retreat to what AL davis did in the 80's lameass argument when he moved them to LA,everytime i just got to say- beam me up scotty,there is no intelliget life forms on this planet.
