California does have only three teams, so no need to move any of them. And no way will the Raiders ever change their name. I do agree that San Antonio would be a good spot for a team; however, I would prefer that everyone stays put.

That's what I mint to say. California has 3 teams. If the Jaguars or Rams move they would have 4 or possibly 5 which is way uncool. So one of the 3 teams in California needs to be the one that moves. Out of all the most populated states Texas has the least teams which is strange because Football is big in Texas. Florida & New York are smaller then Texas but have 3 teams each even though the Giants & Jets are in New Jersey that is basically part of the New York metro area so it's in New York, I guess?? right LOL

California deserves five teams before Florida deserves two.

As for Texas, the Texans are just getting around to making room for themselves when just about everybody in the state is a Cowboy fan.

deserve having a team, and Phoenix generally does not have a lot of support for its
teams due to its transient population).

Cincinnati Bengals (low support, cant make money, and they are partly within the Colts' territory as
they are winning)

Oakland Raiders (too close to San Fran)

Carolina Panthers

Tennessee Titans

Buffalo Bills

Detroit Lions

San Diego (too close to America's 2nd largest metro area of L.A)

Green Bay (by far the smallest NFL market)
Most of these teams are doing just fine where they are. Why should the Bills move? The team could be 2-9 and it could be 5 below zero out, and every last seat will still be occupied.

Who cares if SD is close to L.A.? There are still 3 million people there which makes it a formidable market separate and apart from L.A.

If the Bay Area can support two teams, why not have two teams? Raiders fans are among the most rabid out there, so why should the Raiders go anywhere?

The Packers' market isn't just Green Bay, it's all of Wisconsin -- that's 5-1/2 million people. The Packers have sold out every game since 1963. They're not going anywhere.

I don't think so. They are one of only a handful of teams to have sold out this last season, and have done so consistently year after year. Nashville also has a more desirable geographic location in the state, being in the middle of the state drawing people from all over the state, thus making them, more accurately, the TENNESSEE Titans, and not just the Memphis/Arkansas/Mississippi Titans. Also, Nashville is more centrally located to other greater population centers and does draw fans from other states and cities.

I guess because Nashville isn't a "traditional" large market or something.

He's the same guy who thinks the Packers should move, so don't pay him any mind. If the Packers ever ceased to exist in Green Bay, it'd probably be because the league collapsed or something.

I think the Bills will end up in Toronto. Not because of a lack of fan base but because the amount of money the Rogers people in Toronto are willing to shell out is obscene and they're already warming everyone up for it.

So give 'em the Jaguars. The Bills are doing fine right where they are.

Yeah, I really hope the Bills stay in Buffalo. It would be devestating to the area to lose the Bills.... some of the best fans

Spoken like someone who knows NOTHING about the subject he is talking about.

Let's take this one at a time:

Arizona Cardinals - new stadium recently built in one of the country's largest media markets. They're going nowhere.

Cincinnati Bengals - The Bengals are NOT a low support team. The Bengals ARE making money. Cincinnati is NOT in the Indianapolis market. If anything, the Colts moved in on the Bengals' market.

Carolina Panthers - no reason for them to move

Tennessee Titans - no reason for them to move

Detroit Lions - see AZ Cards

San Diego Chargers - they might move; but for the the reason you gave

Green Bay Packers - The fact that you think they even can move tells me all I need to know about your knowledge on the subject
