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?
1. San Antonio will get a team simply for hosting New Orleans
2.L.A. will never get a team because the people of SoCal are too Jaded
to fork over taxpayer money for a new sports venue and the NFL needs
L.A. much more than L.A. Needs The NFL You Can Beleive That
3.Las Vegas "Never" the people of Las Vegas are like the citizens of L.A.
As A Matter Of Fact I Call Las Vegas And Phoenix (Baja Cali )Vegas is
Too Jaded to even care about a NFL Team Cities that are trying to
Increase Their's Status Are Trying To Lure Teams
4.Toronto And Vancouver are the only Canadian Cities That Could Make
A Go Of The NFL
5.Columbus Ohio could handle a NFL Team look at (Memphis) The Titian
Were There 2 yrs Before They Moved To Nashville And (Jacksonlle) FL
Look How Long They Had A NFL Team And What About K.C. Missouri
6. Austin TX I Left (Baja Texas) That's what I Use To Call Oklahoma
And I Know All About Texas Austin Woud Never Support A NFL Team
They Are Out Into More Important And Weighier Things
7.Louisville Kentucky (Bingo) This Is What I Think Should Be The Second
City To Get A Team Behind San Antonio Louisville Has The Metro Area
Of Memphis,Jacksonville,Nashville And They All Had Have NFL Teams
8.Orlando FL( FL) Isn't Large Enough For (4) NFL Teams Yet (Continued)

I called that one right. R-Braves are leaving Richmond in 2010. That city is in sad shape.

I have seen this error numerous places, including numerous times in this thread alone. San Antonio is the 7th largest city, but it's MARKET (TV specifically) is only 37. Add in in Austin and it gets better but AUS is still not the same city.

Off the top of my head, Portland and Sacramento are bigger markets without teams and Orlando is just as large.

What you also may wanna consider, is yearly income.

I would like to see a team in Fargo also but they dont even have a division 2 college team, or maybe they do now, but you get the point.

I do think if they ever give another city a pro team they should put it in an area that dosent have a pro sports team nearby.The Southwest is spread out and hundreds of miles from one city to the next.

I would like to see Albuquerque,Boise but its way too small,Portland, or Omaha.

Hey JJG, no offense but there should not be a NFL team outside of the United States. Toronto may be a great city and close to the border, but the NFL needs to stay America's game. They tried the World League or NFL Europa, and it didn't work.
