Portland does not have the climate to host the winter games. By the way, saying a city hosted the winter games is meaningless. Such "booming" metropolises like Lake Placid, NY, Grenoble, France, and Squaw Valley, CA have also hosted the Winter Games.

As long as the NFL uses it as a minor league system, its not really "major".

Actually Arizona does get snow. Depends on where you are at in the state. Phoenix, no, but up in the mountains, yes.

Well, Phoenix and Tucson DO get snow, but nothing that amounts to anything really. My point was, football is an outdoor winter sport, and all the dome teams and warm-winter teams just dont belong, it takes the fun out of the sport. But hey, thats just my opinion.

The Virginia Beach-Norfolk metro area with its 1.5 million inhabitants has no top level sports franchise that I'm aware of. Among areas that have one or more franchises, I would vote for San Antonio-Austin, Portland and Vancouver.

There is a reason why Virginia Beach-Norfolk has no major league sports teams......

Huh? I think the NFL financially supports the CFL, but it's not a development league for the NFL. Yeah, guys come from the CFL to play in the NFL, but not as part of any training regimen on the NFL's part.

NFL Europe was the farm league ...

Southern football is king. Do they have the Big 12 and SEC up north? Was Friday Night Lights about a team in Ohio? I don't think so.
It's nice that Texas likes this northern invention, but because someone wrote a novel about high school football in Texas doesn't make it any more of a football "state' than say Ohio. As for the college comment... well that demonstrates someone who doesn't seem to know much of anything beyond there own town.

No, the CFL is practically the farm league. I know the CFL is not "literally" a minor league affiliate of the NFL, and I never said that.

On the other hand, every CFL player wants to play in the NFL, and most players who are in the CFL are only there because they couldnt make an NFL roster.

Cut out the major league bound prospects, and thats basically what a minor league system is.
