It sounds like the Real Salt Lake will play their last season at the Rice Eccles stadium. The Utah Legislature is unwilling to front the taxpayers $20 million to help build the Real arena. The United concerts promoter is now looking to book over at the Usana Amphitheater.

Rocky Anderson, Salt Lake City Mayor, thinks we are missing an opportunity. Are we really? I don't think the demand is there. If it was going to funnel funds into the city, why wouldn't they want it?

I know Utah helped Larry Miller out. That agreement HAS brought capital to the State. Would Real Salt Lake do the same? It doesn't appear so to some Legislators. They definitely haven't convinced me. I know Soccer is a big World Sport and it's great for kids. I just don't see it being huge in America.

However 12 million illegals could prove me wrong.
