I'm sure a bookmaker in Vegas could give them to you.

As a Las Vegas resident since 2008 and a lifetime Sounders fan I tend to resent some of the opinions expressed about Las Vegas given here.
Some of you come to Vegas and never leave the strip so you've never seen the surrounding areas or explored all that Vegas has to offer besides gambling.
I'll grant you that it is hot during the summer months, but the rest of the year is like a Seattle summer. We have a AAA baseball team here that plays all summer
long and the seating at Cashman Field has fans and misters to help with climate control and it makes a frosty beer taste even better. And that park is horribly old so imagine what they can do with a new pitch?
This is a town that loves sports and there are a lot of us who have team loyalties from other cities and are willing to create supporter clubs for all MLS teams that will come to Vegas.
I guess what I'm saying is maybe you shouldn't shoot down Las Vegas as an MLS town until you've come and experienced the real Las Vegas or have come and seen some of her Sounders fans.

Sir. I don't think you appreciate the fact that the vast majority of us realize if Las Vegas gets a team and we have to go to Vegas to play said team that we will all die. Not one of us will make it home. We are aware of this and it is concerning to say the least.

The city has combined forces with the Findlay Sports &Entertainment-Cordish Cos. partnership to build a $200 million, 24,000-seat stadium in Symphony Park. The City Council voted 4-3 on Dec. 17 to earmark $56.5 million for Findlay-Cordish and the soccer stadium, which would only get built if MLS picks Las Vegas over Sacramento, Calif., and two groups in Minneapolis.

The city is also giving Findlay-Cordish free land valued at as much as $48 million for the stadium, which only gets built if MLS picks Las Vegas.

But the city’s stadium subsidy deal has stirred political controversy. Councilman Stavros Anthony is running against Mayor Carolyn Goodman because of the stadium subsidy, and Councilman Bob Beers successfully sued the city to place the stadium subsidy on the ballot in June after Clark County District Judge Jerry Wiese ruled in favor of stadium subsidy opponents on Friday.

Even Clark County commissioners entered the fray, upset over a proposed tourism tax district near the stadium that would help pay for a parking garage to serve the venue.
