Q&A: What do you think of the Raiders coming to Las Vegas?
With a new football team comes a closer sense of community. However, paying for the stadium has become a controversial topic among locals.
"Finally having a professional sports team come to Las Vegas is very exciting, and I plan on going to a bunch of games," senior Jaesen Singkum. "I will still stay faithful to the New England Patriots, but I will obviously be a home team fan."
"I feel like we should be putting the money into our education rather than a stadium," junior Darmi Effo said. "Nevada has one of the worst education systems."
"I'm excited [for the new stadium]," sophomore Karissa Butler said. "I love football and it's great to have a sports team in my hometown."
"I think this will be super cool, and the stadium is going to be a fun hangout place," junior Monica Ortiz said.
"I don't really pay attention to football, so I don't really have much of an opinion," freshman Kritstine Cruz said. "I do think that there will be more traffic with the fans."
