Default Las Vegas Expansion Team? (NHL & NBA)

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/news/story?id=2986775

Quote:
Casino giant Harrah's Entertainment Inc. announced Wednesday that it will partner with AEG, the company that brought David Beckham to the Los Angeles Galaxy, to build a 20,000-seat arena in Las Vegas capable of housing an NBA or NHL team.
The $500 million arena, behind the Bally's and Paris hotel-casinos on the Las Vegas Strip, is projected to open in 2010. It's a step toward attracting a pro sports franchise to a city that has tried to persuade reluctant league officials to look past its legalized sports betting.
Quote:
Goodman said the deal does not slow down city plans for a proposed $9.5 billion sports arena with casino, retail and residential uses on 85 acres downtown, put forth by Michigan-based REI Group LLC.

I would think that Stern would be put off enough by the gambling capital of the world, not too mention the **** that happened after the ASG in Vegas. As for Bettman, I wouldn't put it past him. He'll always be an abortion to hockey and he may as well continue his constant bad decisions.

I like the idea......people have to learn to be mature and take responsibility for their action so LV should be given a chance.

The arena is going to get built. Even if Las Vegas doesn't get an expansion team, the Thomas & Mack Center is 24 years old. However, the arena can cause some traffic problems. They want to put it behind Bally's, but that's a terrible idea. Goodman says he envisions it being built in downtown.

If somebody is ethical at heart, then what city they are in will not matter at all. That guy was greedy. I live in Vegas and it's just a regular city. People just assume that Vegas is full of sinners and that there's no rules. You're talking about pressure to gamble right?

No. I don't know off the top of my head what the name should be, but certainly not that. Lol. If we do get a team, I'm going to be pissed if the games are made up of mostly tourists.

is this a joke? You give young athletes laoded with TONS of money in Las Vegas you don't think they're gonna be tempted and lured into gambling? You're being a little sheltered if that's your honest opinion.
