Las Vegas sells itself. Can Nevada?

Well, Bill Foley, the Florida billionaire spearheading a movement to bring an NHL expansion club to the state, apparently prefers a blanket approach to the cachet of Sin City. 

"(Nevada) has a good catch to it. It's more inclusive," Foley told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "I'll follow up on that. It has a lot of merit. I prefer it. We want to include everyone."

To little avail, the Coyotes encompassed the entire state with a name change this past summer in an effort to entice fans from throughout Arizona to support their brand.
