Jan 11, 2013 (5:31 p.m.) UNLV's 60,000-seat stadium proposal will feature a 100-yard-long video screen, making it the “world's largest multimedia immersive experience,” according to developers.

Whoa. $800 million. I have to think that it will be more of a general use venue than a stadium just for UNLV.

I think it will be general use. If you look at the photo gallery it has pictures of what it would look like with different venus types. (soccer, b-ball, etc)

Congrats to them if they can get this approved and built.

Not if they put the progressives up front and have $15 minimum tables surrounding the restrooms.

They should move the Jaguars or another unsuccessful NFL franchise in there. Then offer deals on trips to Vegas with ticket purchases. That would truly be America's team.

Seems weird for such a crappy program to spend that much money on a stadium

The NFL won't put a team in Vegas. They won't even let Vegas advertise on television during the SB.

So they are going to have a screen large enough to show the action in life size scale? Seems legit.
