Sheldon Adelson withdrew a $650 million dedication to help develop a stadium in Las Vegas for the Oakland Raiders after becoming frustrated aided by the team’s overreaching needs and mixed signals towards him during negotiations.

Mark Davis and Sheldon Adelson, pictured here in happier times, are no further working together on the $1.9 billion ‘Las Vegas Raiders’ stadium project. Adelson spokesman Andy Abboud had some harsh terms for the Raiders this week.

This is in accordance with Andy Abboud, vice president of government relations and community affairs for LVS.

Abboud told the Las Vegas Review-Journal, a paper owned by his boss, Adelson, that the straw that is final if the Raiders took a proposed stadium lease agreement to the Las vegas, nevada Stadium authority without informing the Adelsons.

Wayne Shaw is Sutton’s 300 pound reserve goalkeeper, a man of unusual girth for a soccer player, whose pie-eating antics have caused a storm of controversy and prompted a investigation by the UK Gambling Commission.

The Football Association is considering taking action against the goalkeeper, and on Wednesday, reacting to the criticism, Shaw swallowed some humble pie and announced he would quit.

But what harm is there in eating a pie, other than to your cholesterol levels, you may ask.
