Every once in awhile, the papers in Albuquerque like to taunt the public with prospects of the city getting a new pro-team (At one point not long ago, the Albuquerque Journal speculated that the Arizona Cardinals were considering a move to ABQ - apparently choosing to ignore the fact that Glendale, AZ had just broken ground for the new Cardinals Stadium). I think it will still be awhile before New Mexico gets a pro team, which is too bad because there are a lot of die-hard sports fans here. But hey, Isotopes games are fun, and the stadium is great, (anyone else miss the Dukes, though?). Lobos sports events are fun too.

I think every state should have one major football team

Really? You think every state should have a team? I'm not trying to offend you or make a new enemy when I ask you that, but seriously, do you think states like North Dakota, Montana, and Wyomming should have teams? If anything, they're the places that should have minor leauge sports teams before ever even thinking about an NFL squad. I hope anyone from those states aren't mad that I posted that, but I can't think about an NFL team called the Wyomming Whatevers.

Chalk up another vote for Fargo. But since it'll almost always be frozen over during football season, I propose making it a permanent 120-yard ice rink, and all games in that stadium should be played on ice skates, eh? You betcha!

Chap
Dont make L.A. an exception! Believe me, no team is going to come here unless there's a brand new stadium with beautiful box seats, etc. I've lived in L.A. all of my life, and I don't miss having an NFL team here. It may be a long time before L.A. gets another team, if ever. Unless Gov. Scharzenegger is willing to finance the new stadium out of his pocket, I don't want one. There are too many other major problems in this city to even think of spending public money on something so frivolous! Just my two cents...

As it stands right now, College football (and athletics) reigns as king in L.A. The SC-UCLA rivalry is perhaps unmatched in all of the NCAA. While having an NFL franchise would provide incentives for the already strong high school and college football arenas, I think it would take away from their respective excitement. If to preserve the status quo, I could see Disney/Anaheim working on a franchise in the next 10 years for Orange County. That way, its still within the L.A. market but is only a stone's throw from Disneyland, Angel Stadium, Anaheim Pond, Downtown Disney, and the highly anticipated "Platinum Triangle".
