Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Rick Velotta joined us on CBS Sports Radio 1140 for Silver and Black Tonight and gave us the latest on the delay.


The delay in the installation of the Allegiant Stadium’s intricate cable-system roof has generated much conversation this week so we went to the man covering the story every day – Rick Velotta.

Velotta called in on our Silver and Black Tonight radio show on CBS Sports Radio 1140 to give us the how, what, and why of the roof installation delay on the Raiders new $1.8 billion stadium just off the Las Vegas Strip.

Velotta explains the reasons for the delay and says it won’t impact – as of now – the July completion date of Allegiant Stadium.
