Hmm, I think when 713 to 210 said "Unless you're from Dallas", he meant the DFW Metroplex, which would be a fair statement. Afterall, like you pointed-out, the "Dallas" Cowboys actually don't play in Dallas proper. But it's all the "Dallas area".

In any case, I think 713 to 210's comments are spot-on, IMHO. When the Saints were the "local" team for a while after Hurricane Katrina, locals rallied and rooted for them relatively feverishly.

What's 300k among friends? It's the 6 mil metro that is the key anyhow.

Default San Antonio should get a NFL team

Seriously, its a big city and could draw in crowds from South Texas and Central Texas. Especially if the team had a spanish sounding name. In fact it could take away a large chunk of the cowboys fan base.

I would definitely get more interested in football if SA got a team. Gunslingers would be a good name to revive.

Negative on the S.A. team. The majority of San Antonians have been Cowboy fans since birth, so why try and change our traditional NFL team of 5 decades. SPURS is what we have, and all we need.

^^ Because not everyone is a Cowboys fan. Because new traditions can be created.

You get a team here, you'll see how quickly the fan base builds.
