Also are like of corporate dollars is a problem, people in this city cant afford high ticket prices that would lure corporate suites etc, so yes our city being mostly poor has a lot to do with it

San Antonio has about 2.1 million ppl in the metro and is 37th largest TV market. Most all of the TV market is in Bexar county, while other larger TV markets are spread out over multiple counties to have even close to the numbers of tv housholds found in Bexar county, the 19th most populous U.S. county.
Nashville, Salt Lake City, Indianapolis have larger TV markets due to tapping into most of their state, while San Antonio is hemmed with Austin/ San Marcos. Once you pass New Braunfels your in Austin TV Market. Thats not the case for many of the larger TV markets. Indianapolis has 1.7 million people but larger than San Diego's TV market.

TV market size isn't the sole indicator of a city's ability to support and sustain pro teams. New orleans was 43rd and now is 53rd tv market, and has two teams. Buffalo is number 52 Tv market now, it has NHL and NFL. Austin is now number 49, just recently passing these two cities.

S.A. Corporate presence is at a resptecable level, and stronger here than cities with two or more teams. Lastly, San Antonio has removed itself from any poor cities list, having a higher median family income than Dallas or Houston. I'ts more politics than anything. San Antonio is only going to get much bigger, so bring on MLB and NFL, no sweat.

Personally I would not mind an MLS or NHL team. Both franchises are always expanding, so it's not like MLB and NFL that make it as difficult as possible for a new team to either move or start up. Plus, at least here in America, buth aren't as driven by TV ratings as NBA, MLB, and NFL are, so they'd be easier to get in that regard.

We've got a pretty large geographical DMA....


It's certainly bigger than Detroit:


Cincinnati


Raleigh/Durham


Those areas just simply have larger populations outside the city proper, whereas we lack a large metro area.

Jacksonville Jaguars is the most likely team to relocate in the NFL with their very poor attendance through the last few years. NFL does not like to have empty seats at their games. Los Angeles will be the most likely move for the franchise but if San Antonio is serious and can prove to the NFL that they are you never know. After all who would of ever guessed Nashville would get the relocating Oilers with less than have the population of San Antonio. NOTE: The Titans have never played a home game that was not sold out since moving to Nashville so they have an extremely high fan base with over 25,000 name waiting list for season tickets. The NFL likes your money. Fill the seats and keep the team. Good luck to San Antonio should they opportunity ever come about.

Those counties to the west have almost no population. About 85% of the TV market is in Bexar County. San Antonio metro is approaching 2.2 million. I wouldn't say we are lacking a major metro population. San Antonio and Cincinatti are about the same size, but S.A. about to surpass it. Ralegh/Durham metro is much smaller.
