Or do you look at the huge media markets of Vancouver, or Montreal. With a proper stadium and an owner not trying to lose on purpose, Montreal dwarfs all other North American possibilities by a large margin.
After what happened with the Expos, they won't move to Montreal, and Seattle would likely block a move to Vancouver. Plus they players union might object, as players hate being part of a Canadian team due to the associated taxes and restrictions.

That's Excalibur to its west, Luxor and Mandalay south from there. To its north is MGM.

So literally across the street from most of the properties you mentioned, at the south end right on the strip.

We stayed at the Trop last time we went to Vegas (2016). They were undergoing a lot of 'renovations' then and it wasn't an optimal experience there. I can see why they're willing to knock it down....

While the hotel at the Trop isnt the best, I love going to the casino there, as its the last of the old vegas casinos. And love that you can go upstairs and look out some of the peek holes that their security people would look through to catch cheaters before they had camera systems.

Is the downtown casino still open?

MLS just seems to be a black hole that city after city pours money down. Disappointed to see LV follow suit. It seems to be a well run metro area.

As to the Super Bowl, unsurprising, the city will do a great job and probably will be part of the unofficial rotation Although at 65K, it is a little small (some other smaller stadiums have the ability to be expanded for the Super Bowl, including Phoenix).

Eh, nobody's getting much money from the city or state for any of these projects after the Raiders deal (which isn't as bad as many make it sound, just the public won't stomach more of that). They'll get the usual tax/land incentives, otherwise people will need to bring the teams here the way Foley did with the Golden Knights. With the Athletics I could see some stadium district stuff beyond that or something, nothing too unusual.
