LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – There have been concerns in the Raiders front office over the departure of four top executives in 6 weeks, including now former president Marc Badain. It has been widely speculated that money issues was a the root of the problem. According to Mike Ozanian, Executive Editor and Co-Host and Managing Editor, Forbes SportsMoney, the problems deal with tax issues involving the $2 billion dollar Allegiant Stadium.

Ozanian claims there was money not reported as income as part of the stadium project.

Allegiant Stadium was built with $750 million dollars of tax-payer revenue. That total is three times greater than any other tax burden put on U.S. residents for a football stadium.

Ozanian does not name the NFL insiders who have given him this information.

NFL author Jason Cole has reported the Raiders have hired an outside law firm to deal with some of the possible money issues and the recent fallout from the front office departures.
