VIDEO: Raiders Owner Mark Davis Serves Lunch to Stadium Construction Crew

For all the hate, criticisms, and personal attacks against Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis, his down-to-earth way and ability to relate to everyday people make him like no other owner in the NFL.

It was 105 degrees in the hot Las Vegas sun, but that didn’t prevent Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis from visiting the site of the team’s new stadium and serving up lunch to hungry laborers.

Davis showed up on the site and quickly donned his Raiders chef hat Рwhich matched his trademark white clothing Рand greeted hungry construction workers over the lunch break hour. Davis talked with limited media and also got to meet many of the men and women on the site.

In typical Davis fashion, it was no big deal. He spent significant time talking to and thanking the men and women who are building his $1.8 billion stadium just off the Las Vegas Strip.

The stadium is on schedule with a completion date of August 2020. In talking with stadium officials, they feel confident about the completion date despite the aggressive schedule put forward. The site continues to add workers and concrete work and steel structure are moving at a rapid pace.

Davis is a frequent visitor to the site and even talked about his affinity for another Las Vegas pro sports figure – Vegas Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury.
