I agree that OKC isn't too small, but I suspect northern Texas folks are largely Cowboy fans and I doubt a new team in OK would change their loyalties. I've also heard that much of Arkansas is a too a Dallas stronghold.

Yes that is true. And when an owner finally gets it in his head that San Antonio is a viable place for a franchise to grow and prosper, then that's when the city will get its team.

I don't see the NFL expanding for a long time. They have the perfect scheduling setup with the 8x4 divisional setup and extra teams would mess that up.

I do think they will move a team to LA eventually. Although the league seems to be doing fine without an LA team.

No one in the world deserves a football team more that Alabama....football is truley a religion there. The colleges there produced and produce some of the greatest football players to ever play or wil play. Some there needs to buy the Jags!

Evertime a team moves there are areas that want the team and give incentive tot hsoe who own them ;so those that didn't get them didn't have enough to offer really.Its a business not what the locals want really.

Why would the Jags leave Jacksonville for a smaller Market (Birmingham) with a dumpier stadium (Legion Field)?

Alabamans do not really care for pro football. It's all about college in that state. They will tell you Sundays are for when you go to church.

Oklahoma City is far from being too small. Not to mention that the area is growing at a good pace and is one of the more financially stable areas of the country.
Doubtful. This is Cowboy country. They will get Oklahoma. They won't get an inch of anything in Texas. While the Charlotte market is smaller than OKC, Oklahoma market does not touch the North Carolina market. Not to mention that OKC does not have the business presence that Charlotte has.
