What? Bull shite.

ETA: watching it now, had no idea they removed it like that, I thought it was just straight dirt. This is a really neat video.

It's put together by steel underneath to keep it from falling apart when they lift it. Quit bitching and watch it.

The douche host almost made that unwatchable with his constant attempts to be funny

That mound would have to be 90% steel to weigh that much!

That's a painstaking process. I think the Raiders' contract with the colisseum expires this year, so this may be the last year we see this kind of stadium.

I think he was referencing the double bull pen mounds when he said 24k pounds

Unfortunately not going to be the case, Raiders are already in extension talks. Have no choice either.

A's are moving to San Jose in 2017, and then the Raiders are likely heading back to LA by 2023.

True, he could've meant the on field mound and two bullpens weighed a combined 24k. Still a ton of weight for one mound!

Seems to me it would be much simpler to build the Raiders a new stadium instead of going through this BS.
