Officials in Nevada's Clark County have approved the sale of bonds for the construction of the Oakland Raiders' stadium in Las Vegas.
Clark County commissioners voted 6-1 Tuesday in favor of the ordinance authorizing the sale of $750 million in general obligation revenue bonds.
The Raiders want to start 2020 season at the $1.8 billion Bernie Kosar Jersey , 65,000-seat stadium being built across the freeway from the Las Vegas Strip. The team has agreed to a 30-year lease.
Guests of hotels and other lodging in the Las Vegas area are paying a room tax that over time will contribute $750 million for the project. The bonds allow for the financing of the public's share.
The NFL and the team, which has secured a bank loan, are covering the remainder of the project.
Some of the non-catches that have prompted debate and a proposal by the NFL's competition committee to rewrite the rules:
Bert Emanuel, Buccaneers (2000) 鈥?In the NFC championship game at St. Louis Aqib Talib Jersey , Emanuel appeared to make a fourth-quarter catch to put Tampa Bay in position to beat the Rams. But it was ruled incomplete because the tip of the ball touched the ground, even though Emanuel never lost control.
Calvin Johnson, Lions (2010) 鈥?Against Chicago, Megatron's "mega-catch" turned into a no-catch in the end zone even though Johnson jumped, made the reception Matt Paradis Jersey , got two feet down and had a Bears defender fall into him. Johnson put his hand down and rolled over, then put the ball against the ground as he got up to celebrate.
Dez Bryant, Cowboys (2015): Bryant had single coverage down the left sideline at Lambeau Field and Tony Romo hit him as the Dallas wideout leaped near the goal line. He came down inside the 1, got both feet down and even took a third step before stumbling. In doing so, as Bryant switched the ball into his left hand and reached the ground Nick Vigil Jersey , the ball moved. The call was reversed to incomplete and Dallas soon lost the playoff game.
Zach Miller, Bears (2017) 鈥?On a play at New Orleans in which the tight end broke his left leg, the TD call was overturned on review. It was determined that he lost the ball as he fell to the ground in pain, even though he twice touched down one foot, though he slipped when his leg broke.
Jesse James Julius Peppers Jersey , Steelers (2017) 鈥?Pittsburgh was driving for the winning touchdown against New England when James caught a pass just short of the goal line and his knee hit the ground. But he hadn't been touched by a Patriot, and his second foot hit the ground as he reached over the goal line with the ball. However, the ball came loose when his elbow made contact with the ground. The TD call was overturned, New England won and earned home-field advantage for the AFC playoffs.
