CFL is Major League too, its championship has been in existance way before the Super Bowl, It has a Hall of Fame, and you still think is doesnt count as a "Major League"?

If the steelers moved to vegas Mr.Art Rooney would be turning over in his grave.

San Antonio has a stadium already (the Alamodome). The city built it just so they could lure an NFL franchise to the city in '93. It may be over 10 years old now, but adding more seats, suites, and converting it into a retractable roof wouldn't hurt.

San Antone will get an MLB team sooner or later.... but I wouldn't count on the hockey team. If Texas gets another NHL team-and that's a big IF-it's going to Houston. I'd even bet that.

San Antonio is the Green Bay,WI of the NBA. One town, one championship winning team (San Antonio has a WNBA team, but honestly, when's the last time the WNBA was just as popular and as followed as the NBA? Just being honest.) But more teams will come, especially an NFL team.

Nah. Football is a cold-weather sport, meant to be played outdoors in freezing temps, hands in the snow. Not in some place that will never see snow (ie AZ, FL, SoCal). There is just something wrong about seeing a football sail in the air, with palm trees in the background, with fans wearing shorts and tank tops, IN DECEMBER. The NFL has been pansified, no thanks to teams from Florida, Arizona, California, etc. I love watching those babies play in Green Bay or face the Monsters of the Midway on a sub-zero day. WELCOME TO REAL FOOTBALL, sissies! If you want palm trees and fancy-schmancy stadiums, go watch soccer or something. Football is all about the cold, always has been.

I'll give you that... football WAS ment to be a cold weather sport. And if it weren't for the midwest, football would be nothing.....

But try telling guys in Hoover, Alabama, New Orleans, Louisiana, and ANYWHERE,Texas that football isn't ment to be played in the south. I bet playing in the snow is tough, I wouldn't know. But I'm pretty sure that playing outside in 105 degree weather with no wind and humidity making it feel alot hotter than it is would be just as difficult as playing in in freezing cold temps. Trust me, I know what that's like. I sweat just thinking about it.

You might not think so, but (whether it be the palm trees of Miami, pine trees in Houston, or whatever that kind of tree that grows in New Orleans) the south rules when it comes to the gridiron. If you don't believe me, just go to a high school game in Southlake,TX.

I will agree with you on one thing, Southern Cal, and those mainly desert states shouldn't talk when it comes to football. They seem to care more about what they should call the next big celebrity couple than football. If you wanna take football out of anywhere, take it out of LA......oh...never mind.

Flordia too much sports in one state to follow!!!!!!!
I think the real place so far would be Louisville gr8 city with alot to do there!!!!!!

The place i think that needs a team also would be Omaha Nebraska They have the college world series there every Yr and is a huge success i cant see why NFl or NBA couldnt make it there creigten sells out every game damn near and wit the new quest center NBA has a new building to USE LETS GET SOME PRO TEAMS IN THE MIDWEST I LIVE IN IOWA and i dont understand how des monies dont have a team i live in CEdar rapids and i got to every Iowa hawkeye game and every home game for the last 8 yrs has been sold out... 70,000 seats i no we could sell out a pro stadium i wish i new who to contact to get this looked at the NFL is wack and needs to put teams into areas it can bring up and help out GReen bay for instance is a small city and is one of the most followed franchises ever!!!
Actually now that you mention it Omaha would be a good place for the next NFL team! The nearest mkt with a team is Minneapolis which is a long way awy. Omaha would draw alot from Iowa, lincoln and the surrounding areas, they would support a team far better than LA or Vegas thats for sure!

I think Oklahoma City deserves the team more than any other city. Sure you can argue that Oklahoma City is not a big metropolis however Tulsa is not very far from there at all. And it may be Sooner country but I believe the football madness would spill over nicely to create a large Oklahoma fan base. Oh, and I've never lived in OK.

4. (the only non-American city that actually deserves one) Toronto
5. Columbus, OH
6. Austin
7. Louisville,KY
8. Orlando, FL
9. Portland, OR
10. Oklahoma City
11. any other American towns without one.
What do you think?
Texas has 2 teams now dont need another one
cali has 3 teams they dont need another one
vegas the corruption and gambling would kill the team
toronto hmm i guess they could have a team but they have canadian football there
columbus!? no way! they have ohio state and they also have 2 pro teams
austin? again no more texas teams!
louisville? no right next to ohio has 2 teams
orlando? no bc florida already has 3 teams
portland i agree with

No. It just SHOULDNT be played in the heat. Playing football in warm weather is about as appealing as drinking microwaved beer. BLECH.

I know southern/western folks love their football and all but I still absolutely despise warm weather teams. Despise. Especially warm weather hockey teams.. but thats another story.

GO BEARS!!!!
