    The Disarray and ‘Stone Age’ Dysfunction of the Las Vegas Raiders

    Former employees described an N.F.L. franchise bedeviled by executive departures, poor financial management, unpaid electric bills and a raft of firings, payouts and N.D.A.s.

    Def not paying to view it.
    I find this very unlikely considering
    ... however if true, it seems Mark is cleaning house and getting the Raiders up to modern times. I know there was rumblings about Mark looking to get the Wynn Group to run the business side of things... seems that is a pretty "modern" way to do things, no?

    Panty, I agree. I mentioned on one of the Ventrelle post that we were looking to bring on an executive from the Wynn group. I don’t think people give Mark enough credit. We all know that when Al died Mark was left with a shit show and all the pariaha’s just wanted to collect a paycheck and get over on the organization. It took some time but changes aren’t made overnight.

    Assassin - Yes that is where i read about the Wynn Group possibility (which i think would be tremendous for this Franchise). Thank you for sharing that info.

    Add to all of this that Ziegler and McDaniels, who come from one of the best run organizations in sports (minus their cheating scandals), would not agree to come to a dumpster fire of an organization like the one that this article poorly suggests. Both Ziegler and McDaniels have boasted how top notch everything is at the Raiders facilities in Vegas, and the appearance seems to be that Mark is willing to do anything in his power to make the Raiders a perennial powerhouse from the top down in this league for years and years to come. Yes Mark took over an antiquated organization that was run down by the late great Al... overhead projectors, old computers, lack of use of analytics, etc etc...
    Mark from the day he took over upon his fathers passing, has done nothing but modernize this organization. Rome wasnt built in a day but the many feats Mark has made during his ownership/leadership have been nothing short of impressive. I really dont understand the posts where Raider fans are wanting a new owner. The Raiders are the Davis family and the Davis family is The Raiders. They are symbiotic, truly one in the same to me...

    i think this is all the old guard (al's stooges) trying to flex its muscle on mark to force him to keep the old ways instead of moving forward and making progress, I for one am glad that mark is cleaning house and starting over

    Apparently the NFL considered the Raiders to St Louis and to force Mark out...

    If the NFL ever rebranded the Raiders, I be done, what a stupid idea.
