Rememeber this is a buiness decison and even the make up of the city counts alot. Houston and Dalls are really the only cities with the demographic to support a team at the level needed now days.

Do you understand how the NFL and business works?

By the way, Henderson in northwest Kentucky is a big Titans town; Owensboro too.

That's the sort of thing I think they should consider. Forget about L.A.
That's never happening.

I know that this is all opinion and what not, but there's NOOOOOOOO way any state other than Cali, Texas, Florida, Ohio, Penn, and New York (sort of) will have more than one team.

Big markets = big money, L.A. WILL get a team even if they don't want one. Period.

If the NFL put another team back in Wisconsin, it should be Milwaukee. There are some other big cities without NFL teams that should be considered for locations of maybe an alternative football league looking for non-NFL markets:

Albuquerque, Louisville, Salt Lake City, Memphis, Portland, San Jose, Columbus...

The only city seriously mentioned in the run-up to the tax referendum for Paul Brown Stadium was Baltimore. The Bengals are going nowhere. Furthermore, Indy is about the same distance to Louisville as Cincy, and you may have heard that there's a pretty good team in Indianapolis. It's simply not going to happen for Louisville.
