I have not only heard of Terre Haute, I have been to Terre Haute.

What exactly does this have to do with NFL franchises?

That's a bunch of crap. San Antonio would be a fine place for an NFL team. You must not have been to SA in a long time because it's changed alot and is certainly good enough for the major leagues and the NFL in addition to the NBA. Where did learn to spell too? Because you don't do a very good job of it.

1. LA
2. Portland
3. Salt Lake City
4. Virginia Beach - Norfolk - Hampton Roads Area
5. San Antonio
6. Sacramento

I think you're way off the mark on this post. The only place I see on your list that should be ahead of San Antonio, and that's barely, is Los Angeles.

Portland - Doesn't have a stadium for football and won't anytime soon. Besides the city has made it well known that their priority is baseball.

SLC - Same thing here. No stadium and no plan to build one. It's also not big enough. Not enough people in the region.

VB - A clear case of being too small. Also, no stadium ready. No plans to build one. VB area is about half the size of San Antonio.

San Antonio - the most logical choice for a team next to LA. At 2.1 million the metro area is much larger than any of the other candidates except Los Angeles. It has a Dome that's ready for play now and can be either refurbished or another Dome built. It's got a strong corporate community. With the way people worship football around San Antonio the team would enjoy massive support much like the Spurs have for 36 years.

Sacramento - Being so close geographically to two other teams knocks them out of the competition automatically. SF/Oak are only about 90 miles away. San Antonio lies 200 miles form Houston and 300 miles from Dallas.

Based on this information and other facts that are included in this link, San Antonio and Los Angeles will be next to get NFL teams in the near future. Within 5 years for sure.

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?
L.A. can't support a team...maybe the Raiders could make it

San Antonio is a good option but the Cowboys dominate that state.

Las Vegas would come off as hokey just because of the areas reputation

Columbus would die as it would be sooo close to the Browns and Steelers

Louisville I don't know enough about the area.

Orlando is to close to Tampa.

Portland can support a team so maybe.

OKC would be a good option.


Scranton!!!!

How about Juno, Alaska and make it an open air stadium. Then Green Bay could no longer call their stadium the frozen tundra.

I personnally dont want an NFL team in LA seeing as the 49rs are about 6-7 hours from here the raiders are about 5-6 hours away and the chargers are only 3-4 hours drive from LA. besides LA already has a team that is better then some NFL teams here (USC).If anything make a team called the Los Angeles Trojans i bet you will get a good fan base and many around here might aprove. rathere then sending some other citys failures or burdens we dont want them or need them.
