Chicagoland feels almost as big as NYC tri state and the LA area.. The Baltimore-Washington area officially comes in at 4th place population wise behind NYC, LA, and Chicago respectively.

Baltimore is quite unlike Camden. Did you actually visit Baltimore or "learn everything about it" from The Wire? For starters, per capita income in Baltimore is nearly double Camden's. Secondly, Baltimore is the center city of its metro area. Camden is nothing like that. If you want a more valid unflattering comparison city for Baltimore you could use: Baltimore = Cleveland or Baltimore = St. Louis.

Chicago. DC and Baltimore should not even be grouped together. It should just be DC, Baltimore is just that smaller metro area to the north.

Chicagoland though is massive. It is hard to even grasp unless you have lived there.

I don't mean to totally hijack this thread, but this is exactly why the Chicagoland area needs another NFL franchise! I'm tired of these smaller CSA's (DC/Balt, Bay Area) having two NFL teams while Chicago's insatiable appetite for NFL football is shoehorned into a 62,000 seat stadium at $200-$300 a ticket to see a team that has missed the playoffs in 7 out the last 8 years.

LA, a much bigger CSA than Chicagoland, doesn't even have a team ...comparing DC/Balt and the Bay is kind of a mistake as well...DC/Balt is two relatively large metros merging together...we don't really root for each others teams...living in Maryland, I was happy that the Ravens won 2 years ago but I never felt a "we won" type of sensation

Maybe that's the solution to the "LA problem": Give LA a franchise and add a second team in Chicago. It would even out the imbalance that would exist by just adding a LA team. On the other hand, it would be tough to get any one in the Chicago area to root for a team other than the Bears.

Yeah, it beats LA having no teams and only exists as a threat to other cities when they don't feel like paying for a new stadium.

Blame the government for creating the CSA designation that really, no one in the real world cares about.

Which is why it's ridiculous to even think about it.
