Las Vegas Man Creates ‘Go Fund Me’ Donation Page for Raiders

All he needs is $650 million to bring the Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas. Gilbert Roughhouse of Las Vegas started the page hoping to fill the gap created when Sheldon Adelson pulled out of the stadium deal.

Oh his page he says:

Let’s band together to bring one of the most storied NFL franchises to Las Vegas. The Oakland Raiders have endured enough hardships in Oakland being the last team to share a stadium with a Baseball team, thus playing on dirt for the 1st half of each season. Las Vegas provides a unique opportunity for NFL fans as the entertainment capital of the world! What better than to take that planned trip to Vegas and also be able to watch NFL football. Even if you are not a Raiders fan, this move would breath fresh air into the Las Vegas community; creating hundreds of construction and stadium personnel jobs as well as all that the Raiders organization and players do for local communities. This only makes sense and I believe if all Raider fans and football fans alike donated a small sum, we could show what kind of fans the Raiders and NFL football have in Las Vegas, Nevada!!!

At last check he had $60 in donations…so he has a little ways to go.
