And just as there are many cowpig fans in San Antonio and Austin there are as many Spurs fans there as well. Primarily because the two franchises have been very successful and have won numerous Championships. Oh and incidentally, when San Antonio gets its football team Austin will become apart of that TV market for reasons of proximity. Sorry Austin cowpig fans.
Cowpig? Must be a deadskin fan. We all know how obsessed they are over their father.

Anyway regarding Austin. Please. If the Austin market wants to watch the Cowboys, they will put the Cowboys on. Just as much as they do with the Titans and Texans. San Antonio could have a team (and I think they can support one no doubt), but Austin will still be a dominate Cowboy town.

True. I am a great fan of the mighty Washington Redskins. And I make no bones about it. And it remains to be seen if Austin will remain a cowpig town in the future. Of the three NBA teams in Texas, Austin has by far more Spur fans than any other team. I find that interesting.

It seems that several people on this forum have an outdated and inaccurate view of today's San Antonio. San Antonio is the 7th largest city and the 27th largest TV market in the country. And is expected to grow by leaps and bounds in the years ahead. And it is certainly a place that can support and an NFL team for 10 games a year plus the playoffs.
Charlotte,Nashville,and Denver only have ONE team in their state.The guy is right when he says Dallas will still prevail for the majority of the people from Texas.I went to Lackland while in the Air Force and can honestly say that the first year or two they'd do good but after that, the bottom would fall out like it did with the Oilers(originally in Houston) and they were fairly competitive.

No matter where else you put a team in Texas,most would still support the Cowboys.

Was it like that 10 years ago? Dallas and Houston are decent teams but the Spurs have CONSISTENTLY been good since David Robinson was on the team.People like winners and the Spurs are proven champions and alot more consistent then the other two from Texas.

Not sure why so many people have listed Las Vegas. Too many transient people living there with previous allegiances.

Austin has always been a rabid Cowboy town. Ever since the Cowboys came into the League. Obviously not as popular as the Longhorns. But still very rabid.

Can't say that I know much about Texas... but I tend to think San Antonio wouldn't be a bad place for a new team. On the other hand... I'm pretty much oppose anymore expansion, in any sport.

I dont think San Antonio should get one, Texas already has 2 and the Cowboys dominate the scene too much already in all the nearby areas. It would be a waste of a team when you could give it to a city that would be truly devoted to their football team.

Kentucky seems to show good support for their teams wether its college football or basketball or minor league baseball but I think the Southern cities are much more interested in college ball.
