NFL – holding player draft in Las Vegas in April – refuses to approve LVCVA TV tourism spots Alan Snel, LVSportsBiz.com · January 17, 2020 at 10:20 pm The obvious news Friday was that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell spoke to a big Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce crowd at Wynn Las Vegas. But before Goodell had his “fireside” chat with Las Vegas Review-Journal sports editor Bill Bradley, the NFL commissioner privately met with the media buyer for the local public tourism agency — the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA). R&R Partners Executive Vice President Rob Dondero buys media spots to promote Las Vegas for the LVCVA, spending millions of dollars on TV spots hyping Las Vegas during NBA. NHL and MLB TV games, for example. But Dondero has bumped into a bizarre media buy roadblock with the NFL.
