Does the city want the Raiders and the NFL to pay up a bunch of money? You bet it does.

But why, exactly? You can dig into the entire 353-page court filing yourself, for some not-so-light reading on the matter.

So pour a drink, sink into a comfy chair and dive into a legal fight that could alter the NFL in the Bay Area -- as least sooner than we thought.

Raiders' Mark Davis sweating Allegiant Stadium construction timeline

Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis said construction crews are working against the clock as they mount a final push to complete Allegiant Stadium ahead of a July 31 deadline.

Speaking Monday morning on ESPN Radio 1100’s “The Press Box,” co-hosted by Las Vegas Review-Journal sports columnist Ed Graney, Davis touched on how crews have worked around the constraints created by the coronavirus pandemic.

“You think everything is going great and everything is on time and all of a sudden real life steps in the way,” Davis said. “You have to be prepared for those types of issues.”

Mortenson-McCarthy reported last week that 15 trade workers on the project are currently home with the coronavirus.

Defensive lineman Maxx Crosby showed off his new tattoo of the Raiders' logo Monday, one week after running back Josh Jacobs and defensive lineman Clelin Ferrell did the same.

While Jacobs and Ferrell were first-round picks, Crosby was a fourth-round selection, and put together an impressive rookie campaign.

In 16 games, Crosby had 47 total tackles, 10 sacks, 16 tackles for loss and 14 quarterback hits.

With Crosby, Jacobs and Ferrell, Las Vegas' newest professional sports team has the building blocks to be very successful over the next decade.
