Lisa Motley of Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority gets fans ready to hit up the new home of the Las Vegas Raiders.
On the newest episode of The Only Nation Podcast, we prepare to visit Las Vegas. We start the show discussing this week’s first padded practices in training camp. Wide receiver Bryan Edwards, tackle Sam Young and linebacker Javin White are turning heads in a good way. Meanwhile, rookie running back Lynn Bowden Jr is having some trouble adjusting to NFL level play.
T3RaiderFax presents a new list for Heidi’s High Five. He later covers the return of Maxx Crosby and Rod Smith to the active roster. We also talk about wide receiver Tyrell Williams coming into the season healthy after battling plantar fasciitis last year. Furthermore, T3 reveals his weekly overachiever and underachiever for training camp and relays some interesting stats about turnover differential.
Heading to Vegas
We then welcome Lisa Motley, director of sports marketing for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, who prepares us for Visit Las Vegas. We learn that taking a tour of Allegiant Stadium is a must for any Raider fan heading to the city. Lisa gives us the scoop on local sportsbooks and mega resorts, including a new one opening this Fall, which is only for adults 21 and over. She also reports that Las Vegas will be hosting the 2021 NFL Pro-Bowl and that it might be the first event that actually allows fans inside Allegiant Stadium.
Interesting Player Facts
Wrapping up the episode, we learn about a Raiders who is the only Guatemalan-born player in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and Heidi covers a current player who’s been able to turn his life around.
