Never say never 4. San Antonio has a terrific chance of getting its own NFL team. It would be tremendously successful and would provide great rivalries with your Cowboys and Texans. Mark my words.

If any NFL team were to move, it should be the Jacksonville Jaguars. They seem to have too many problems financially and Los Angeles appears poised to bring the NFL back to the city, hopefully with the right ownership and direction. The stadium plan is very impressive, innovative, and different. I hope the Jags move. Then, we'll have to talk realignment of the divisions, but that's another thread.

This, I believe, is L.A.'s best opportunity to bring football back.

Los Angeles will get the next NFL team from an existing team moving there. The NFL needs Los Angeles more then Los Angeles needs the NFL.

With that being said, most LA area residents would support a well run and marketed pro football team.

Wrrrrrooong.

If Jacksonville, Florida can get a team (WITH two teams that have locked down the state already), then why can't San Antonio get one?

Right, but now we're seeing that the NFL made a mistake by giving Jacksonville a franchise. I don't think the NFL would want to repeat that mistake again.

Only because the NFL really, REALLY wants L.A. to have a franchise.

San Antonio's market may not be huge, but its still alot bigger than Northeast Florida. San Antonio is the 29th largest market, while J'ville is 42nd.

So it's not impossible to see an NFL team in San Antonio. But it probably wont happen. Even if L.A.'s NFL team leaves 15 years after it appears in the city....

I have relatives in St. Catharines, Ontario right next door to Buffalo. They claim that the Bills would never make it in Toronto. I think its partly because most Canadians honestly don't understand or appreciate the sport. The CFL is kinda a joke, north of the border. They think the same of the NFL.
.
Hockey is Canada's favorite past-time and always will be. But I think the Bills would do alright in Torontooo... Die hard fans could still make it to games on occasion, even though it might be discouraging dealing with a 2-1/2 hour drive and customs at the border. However, the luke warm fans would probably never make that trip. But thats my opinion.
.
That said, I think they could make it in Toronto. The city is enormous and there's plenty of people from all over, living there. Similar comparison would be Washington D.C. I think Toronto's biggest appeal to the Bills, is the wealth of corporations there. They could easily sell plenty of box seats, following a strategy similar to the Maple Leafs (doesn't matter how bad they are, they still make money).
.
Personally, I want the Bills to stay in Buffalo, but long term I don't think its going to happen. There just aren't enough people or income in WNY anymore to support the team. And its to bad.
