How about here in New York City area, we have two NFL teams that play across the street from the arena that use to be the home of the New Jersey Devils and New Jersey Nets and yet they still call themselves the New York Giants and New York Jets...if you have to drive over a bridge or through a tunnel to NJ, and pay NJ taxes...you are a NJ team.
