What's the source of your information? Everything you state is utter nonsense.

Your probably thinking about the Penguins (who won't be leaveing after all). I've heard nothing about the Steelers moving. Like New Orleans, Pittsburg will NEVER let their football team go, I'm sure.

L.A. is a horrible sports town overall. However, it still has 13 million people in its metro area and 2 teams each in every other pro sports league, so I think the answer here is a no-brainer. I enjoy the passion of the people that live in places such as Witchita, Omaha, and Alburquerque, but L.A. has neighborhoods that are larger than all of those cities combined. Local boosterism is nice, but everyone needs to look at it from the perspective of the NFL itself: what is going to bring the most value to the league? Well, when you've got the 2nd-largest metro area and the city that largely shapes the world's image of America without a team, it's pretty difficult not to start there even if other cities such as San Antonio might be worthy on paper. The L.A. fans might not necessarily deserve a team, but there's little doubt that the NFL knows that it's crazy not to have a team there.

I understand what you're saying, but the fact that L.A. is still open makes it extremely unlikely the NFL would put a franchise anywhere else at this time. Plus, with the way Houston was recently awarded an expansion team and how Jerry Jones is extremely territorial (there is no doubt that he would fight it tooth and nail), it's going to be tough for San Antonio to get a team in this environment. I'm not saying that it will never happen (I think San Antonio ought to have had a team before Jacksonville), but it's just going to be tough since L.A. is unlike any other market out there in terms of size and power. As I've said before, other cities might have the loud local boosterism, but L.A. is the 2nd-largest market in the U.S. and almost single-handedly is responsible for shaping America's image in the world - the NFL knows that it's a huge gaping hole to not have a team there. I think L.A. fans are apathetic overall, but even if only 20% of the L.A. metro area could be considered "good fans", that alone is larger than all of the metro areas that we've discussed here.

The cities with 2 baseball teams are all metro areas that are several times the size of the smaller baseball markets, so on a per capita basis, it's not a case where there's much oversaturation (i.e. Chicago can easily support 2 baseball teams, while it's questionable whether Pittsburgh can support even 1). Realistically, L.A. is just too huge for the NFL to ignore much longer.
