With local officials trying to lure another sports team to SA, I wanted to know did people really want another sports team and if so what do you think will be its impact on SA?

Mayor Phil Hardberger and County Judge Nelson Wolff have scheduled a meeting for next week to discuss how San Antonio would pursue NFL or Major League Baseball teams interested in relocation.

I say, good luck Say Town. That one Eastside vision went down the drain.

It was never even a serious development, just one company's vision. There was really never any serious thought to it. It seemed nice but it was all show.

The AT&T Center area is still a great site for a new stadium, probably over the current golf course there. It's perfect for future light rail also.

As the No. 37 TV market, San Antonio is still too small to support a major-league baseball team, and the previous-generation Alamodome makes it doubtful an NFL team would relocate. Also, the Cowboys have a huge hold on the market. The market feels more like a Portland/Salt Lake City/Sacramento, which support one pro team nicely.

San Diego is 27th, not exactly top 5.

The Dome is only a temporary place for a team to play while a new stadium was built.

Up until last year everyone said OKC was a city that couldn't support one team, now they're supporting the Hornets better than the two team city of New Orleans (which is greatly smaller than SA). I hate the "too small" talk because it's just that, talk, lame talk I might add.

San Antonio is a smaller market however I think that it can support another major league team I think football would be better than baseball,yes there are a alot of cowboys fans(not me) but they are America's team. I'm glad to see that the city is trying to be proactive about the matter.Now San Antonio might be the 37th tv market but we are bigger than KC,Green Bay,New Orleans, and jacksionville.

Green Bay has all of northern Wisconsin. New Orleans controls all of Louisiana, and Kansas City has a strong hold on Kansas and the western half of Missouri. J-Ville is the only city that is too small.

Good luck with Northern Mexico. And South Texas is Cowboys country. There are a lot of Houston Texan fans in the Rio Grande Valley, too. And if San Antonio landed an MLB team, try taking the market away from Austin (aka Astro-e land).
