View Full Version : What City would you like to see with a NFL franchise?

Pick other if your city you wanna pick aint listed!

05-31-2004, 08:31 AM
Looking at it slightly differently, which city would you like to see lose their team? The way I see it, the league is now nicely set up, 4 divisions of 4 teams in each conference. It's scheduled so that it is guaranteed that you play every team at least once every four years. If another team is added, then you start to get anomalies like not playing sides for 15 years, etc. The only way to keep the current balance would be to add about eight teams to the league.

Not sure if the market share is big enough but I picked other because I think Little Rock, Arkansas would be a great football city.

The way Arkansas embraces the Razorbacks is impressive. If they had an NFL team they would be a great city to watch a game at.

If the Broncos moved to London:

a) It'd piss off most of the people on the forum
b) Make the small English Bronco fan contingent rather happy

BUT in England we are allowed to bring beer into the stadium. So there's an incentive for you to move to the UK .:cool:

Personally I wanna see Lima, Peru with a team. They will be the feared Lima Beans. Or maybe the Lime Llamas. Yeah man thats what I want to see.

the league should stop expansion and relocation right now... eveyrthing is set up fine.. LA failed twice to keep franchices... hawaii and alaska would require way too much travel time.. could u imagine the buffalo bills having to travel to honolulu for a sunday game? vegas would be a stretch .. and with the vast majority of vegas coming from tourism they would probly be hardpressed to have a high season ticket sales base.. the others would be small markets probly not able to hold a franchise.. the only viable change i could see is if the colts moved .. and that is if these things i hear are true bout them not being able to fill that crappy dome they have over there.. otherwise leave the colts alone.. possibly the poorly ran cardinals could flourish somewhere else but they have poor management so location really means very little there..

05-31-2004, 10:04 AM
norfolk va ....largest markey without any pro teams hopefully selig gets his head out his ass and puts the expos there

05-31-2004, 10:06 AM
but all those east coast markets are so close together.. wont that cut down the orioles fan base?

05-31-2004, 11:15 AM
Vegas is a great choice. Perhaps moving the Chargers off the Left Coast (granted, they would not be moving too far away from that place) would do them some good.

As with every tourist city, you need attractions to keep the people coming back for more? And what better way to keep them content than with a professional football team? Observe exhibit A:

Husband: "Honey, I booked our trip on travelocity.com! We're leaving Monday and getting back next Tuesday! Over a week in Vegas, baby!"

Wife: "That's great, dear...are you sure we can afford this, though?"

Husband: "I took out a loan...no worries...the credit realtors won't take me away to prison for a few months!"

Husband: "So, here's what I'm thinking. We'll eat out at expensive restaurants (which, when the taxes are collected from the restaurant owners, portions go to help pay for new stadiums for the city of Las Vegas), go to the Casino, and...on Sunday...I'm taking the family to watch the Bandits (for those of you who did not catch on, the Chargers have moved to Las Vegas to get into a stronger market and attract new fans and have changed names) play!

Wife: "The Bandits?!?! How did you swing tickets to that?!?!"

Husband: "Well, dear...the Bandits do not have very many season ticket holders, but they still manage to sell out every game."

Wife: "That's great! But the Broncos are still better..."

is to have no more teams. of course the nfl is intent on going back into the l.a market. do they not see that the fans dont turn up for pro games there.

05-31-2004, 11:26 AM
Why would we want to move an NFL franchise to canada?? Anchorage? There's not enough people in anchorage *laughs*.. and half the year you would have to have all night games.... or all day games

Las Vegas would be a cool and very viable option.

San Antonio, Texas would be a great city for an NFL franchise. Red McCombs owns half the damn city already and the only pro sports franchise SA has is the Spurs. The town really supports that team, so an NFL team in SA would fit very well.

Simply genious!!! iwas gonna' say the same thing! Mccombs owns the Vikings and there was talks of him moving them there but it won't happen! They already have a stadium built in the Alamo Dome! and they fans would tottaly embrace them there! Look how much they love Timmy and the Spurs

05-31-2004, 12:19 PM
I'd have to agree that SA would probably be the ideal place. But honestly, does the NFL really need another team? IMO all the sports have too many teams as it is. If they do decide to expand once again, please, please anywhere but LA!!

05-31-2004, 12:24 PM
The lame thing about living in Oklahoma is that we have no NFL teams period. What is wrong with that picture? I would be happy it being in any city, as long as we had someone lol. Thats why I became a Bronco fan in the Elway days. One of the closest teams to Oklahoma that I liked. Been a fan every since. Now we have two awesome Oklahoma backs in Denver, I love it when Okies go to Denver.

05-31-2004, 12:41 PM
I say the Borough of Brooklyn, New York should get a team. Yeah, I'm a Homer but so what. It's my choice and opinion. I could see it now, the Brooklyn Brawlers. Yeah, sounds like a real Football Team to me. They'll be the non Fugazy version of the Chokeland Raiders.:fight:

Mexico City

and Des Moines of course.

05-31-2004, 03:51 PM
san antonio? texas already has the texans and cowboys.. i realize its a big state but why throw another one down there? i still dont see vegas happening... i hold the same opinion on florida.. why pack more than two teams into one state?

05-31-2004, 05:35 PM
Los Angeles NEEDS a football team. from what i read in the papers looks like they might.
think about it....you got powerhouses like USC, big doggs like UCLA, the lakers, and the dodgers, but no NFL team for one of the core cities in the world??? bring football back so peeps can stop talkin about the raiders.

nice signature!

why go to LA when you can go to Rapid City, South Dakota?

06-01-2004, 01:08 AM

after practicing with the Bengals for 30 some years, they should be eligible for a real team now.

06-01-2004, 06:02 AM
canada, alaska, and hawaii all would be bad moves...to far for anyone to travel.

las vegas wouldnt be a great move either...sure lots of ppl vist there to gamble and get drunk.... not watch football. the city isnt that big, most of the population is visitors.

i picked Sac and LA.

give it up for further nfl dollar making expansion. could see the merits in the cards moving again but not the dolts.

06-01-2004, 06:41 AM
For RC's sake, I voted other , I'll put a write in vote for OMAHA!!!! Maybe then, he'll decide there is no need to root for the Donkeys!

Besides, Vancouver and Anchorage , yeah right, like I couldn't think of any other BIG CITES that could use an NFL TEAM, like PORTLAND or OMAHA or SAN ANTONIO!!!!

06-07-2004, 10:01 PM
It'd be the I-29 Rumble! Travel time would be nil for Kc/Denver St. Lewie and Minnisewty.

06-12-2004, 11:37 AM
i say again norfolk va.............put it there

06-13-2004, 07:40 PM
I currently think that the league with the amount of teams it has right now works beautifully, for the reasons listed.

If a team were to re-locate, then I understand why the league wants a team in L.A. With revenue sharing and a hard cap, every team gets more TV money from a team being in that market. I think Toronto would embrace it, as long as it was not a team like the Cardinals.....CHEAP. Not that you can win every year, but if your fans believe that you are trying, you'll be ok up there. They wouldn't have the same disparity problems that the NHL and MLB have, because again, you have the hard cap, and Toronto is a BIG market. Bigger than a lot of current NFL markets. The NFL would just need to adjust the cap (in Canadian dollars) for a Canadian team based on the exchange rate on a day agreed upon by all the owners. The only really bad problem I see with a Canadian team is that if (and lets hope this never happens) one of the countries economies goes seriosuly in the toilet (not like now, but something REALLY serious) the exchange rate goes up or down and screws the paychecks after the exchange rate.

Expansion I do not want to see happen. :fight:

06-14-2004, 01:29 AM
I would love it so much if Alaska got an NFL team...And thats what I voted for too just because I am biased to the best state in the US...But right now I just dont think we have enough people in Anchorage..We almost have 400,000 people...In 15 years the projected population is supposed to be around a million and then maybe then we can get an NFL team...We could be called the Alaskan Assasins..There has been rumors though that we might get an Arena football team soon, that would be really cool too...And for all of you who think Alaska is a big chunk of ice where people live in igloos and ride dog sleds every where think again, cause its the most bueatiful state in the United States..

06-27-2004, 05:46 PM
Imagine, the Birmingham Bug Zappers!

I also told my friend once that the Broncos were moving to Louisville, Kentucky and would be playing in a new stadium named after Colonel Sanders. She did not believe me. Imagine, the old red chicken at the 1950s KFC greeting Broncos fans. You could eat all that fried chicken and Taco Bell and wash it down with a cold A&W Root Beer Float.

06-27-2004, 05:50 PM
prolly won't be norfolk va should be though . I beleive that is where the expos end up

After living there for 11 years, I can say that Vegas would not work. The NFL has never attempted to go there, but every other professional team that has attempted to survive there has failed. They currently have arena ball in their second year and attendance is already dropping.

They failed with the CFL and even though the XFL failed as a league, the attendance at those games dropped drastically as the season went on.

We were so happy to get the hell out of there. That city needs an enema.
