In this economy there aren't too many cities willing to spend $1 billion for a new football stadium, Los Angeles excepted. I wouldn't be surprised if the Jaguars left Jacksonville for L.A.

I also wouldn't be surprised if the Nashville Predators (NHL) left town, but then the question is where would they go. Most NHL teams aren't doing very well financially, and not many cities have lavish arenas that they're willing to give away in order to attract a hockey team. Hockey attendance is down just about everywhere, too.

I don't see any of the major league sports leagues expanding except soccer. And if MLS were to expand, Atlanta would be a perfect fit.

But what I think is more interesting is the fact that the NCAA is expanding into Canada by allowing universities in British Columbia to join.
I think that the Nashvilel Predators would go to Houston. Houston is a much bigger market with 5.8 million in the CSA compared to Nashville 1.6 million.

College sports are better because they try. Once you're in the big leagues, it's not as important.

College football is miles more entertaining than NFL. If L.A. did get a pro team I would never go.

I would prefer that. I don't want Austin to become like the other cities. Besides, it's not that far from San Antonio, so why would anyone want two clones?

Toledo is too close to Detroit (Tigers, 55 miles away) and Cleveland (Indians, 100 miles away) for that to happen. Besides, I believe they are happy with their minor league Mud Hens

Go watch a rivalry game such as A&M vs UT, Auburn vs Alabama, Oregon vs O State, Ohio State vs Michigan then get back to us

Having experienced both college and pro a number of times, the intensity, atmosphere and spirit at a high level college game dwarfs that of any NFL game .... and I love the NFL

That being said..... I think that the Hampton roads should get a pro team of some kind, although I don't know which sport would be best for them

Why? Because the slow pass rush and inexperienced defenders allow for big plays that you see more in the schoolyard than the NFL?
