Salt Lake City is an interesting case study. Since it is the hub of the LDS church, many have wondered if the NFL could even be considered there with their 90% Sunday schedule. The NBA Jazz do not schedule Sunday home games, but there have been a few when requested by a major network. I don't know of many other regions in the country where religion could keep a league from moving into the market. But if that is the popular view there, then so be it.

Being Captain Hindsight here, what probably should have happened in '93 was for the Rams to stay in L.A. while either St. Louis or San Antonio received the 30th franchise. But things didn't turn out that way and as people have already mentioned, their stadium lease is locked down pretty tight.

The Jaguars won't be going anywhere for a while...

And shouldn't given the city's support, attendance and stadium upgrades.

Why not, they are not exactly packing them in down in Jacksonville? Not that I blame the fans not wanting to support a consistent loser.

Plus they ALWAYS play a game in London. Not sure if they are the ones giving up a home game each year though.

Jacksonville is not going anywhere. People need to drop that fantasy. The NFL will give a 33 and 34th franchise before Jacksonville even considers looking at relocation options.

Unless the NFL FORCES the Jaguars to leave, they're staying and going to stay for a long time.

Period.

St. Louis voters rejected a proposition to help fund an MLS stadium. Due to that, St. Louis' chances of getting one of the four expansion teams is essentially extinguished (as of today and any previous grandstanding) as the MLS commissioner had previously stated that if the public rejected the stadium financing that St. Louis would not be getting a team.

St Louis is and will always be a baseball town. NFL wants their towns to be mainly NFL towns. Majority of NFL cities the NFL team is main team, not MLB, NHL, or NBA
