After the Raiders struck a deal to move to Las Vegas, the owner of the NHL’s Golden Knights didn’t exactly greet them with open arms.
Bill Foley said he thought there were better ways for the city to spend hundreds of millions of dollars than by building a stadium for the Raiders before ending his comments by saying it wasn’t his decision so I welcome them. Foley’s team became the first pro team in the big four sports to call Las Vegas home this year and their season is set to continue on Monday in Game One of the Stanley Cup finals against the Capitals.
He’s listed as a defensive end on the roster. But ask him what position he plays and he grins.
Athlete, he said. Just say athlete.
Absolutely trying to make the Pro Bowl, and have a hell of a year, be All-Pro, Lee recently told NJ.com. I’m not trying to be just some regular linebacker here. I’m trying to be the best, one of the best. That’s why I’m here.
He realizes that his chances of getting to the Pro Bowl will be enhanced if the team is winning more games than the 10 they’ve won over the past two seasons. He also realizes that he needs to generate some (any) statistics in one key category.
I’ve got to get some picks, Lee said. That’s going to be my main focus this year. I definitely had a way better second year. I think I’ve used those first two years to just absorb what I could do better. Now, I can really, really hone in.
