As a Nevada native who spent most of my formative years in Las Vegas, I have spent most of those years hoping for the city to get a major league sports franchise of our own, and the last handful of months arguing the merits of the city getting an NHL team over the hordes of "should have gone to Canada or Seattle instead." Yet tonight, which for many of us who waited a long time for this moment, we get treated to an absolute embarrassment of a presentation, a moniker a large number of us didn't want AND get our city name shortened because, God forbid, Bill Foley's erection for West Point doesn't get stroked... proper city naming be damned. I could eventually stomach the Golden Knights moniker. I also really like the logo and colors. However, the Vegas part? Nope. But hey.. get your merchandise and season tickets now!
Oh well. The Raiders are coming soon. At least Mark Davis will have enough respect for the city he will be calling home to name it by its proper billing.
