Texas is a continent now? When did this happen? I had a long nap today, but damn!

with how terrible the cowboys are and jerry jones trying to run that organization (with it failing and probably never going to go back to the early 90s glory days), i think fans would be accept a new team in san antonio with a good front office running things better than the neighbors up north.

I agree. I would love to see a system like Green Bay has for an SA team.

Well, Goodell made it clear that he wants a team in LA - even if they have to create one from scratch. But, what was more interesting (to me) was that he said IF they do that - they would want 34 teams. So they would have to create one more team. Enter San Antonio into the process (again). I know we have plenty of nay-sayers (Alamodome, the false-belief of SA being small market, blah blah), and it would be quite a few years before it would happen - but it can certainly happen. HOPE!!!

The NFL will NEVER come to San Antonio.

Reasons?

1. San Antonio is beyond dirt poor.
2. San Antonio is Cowboys country.
3. San Antonio will not pay for a NFL stadium.(The Alamodome is now a joke and will never be used to play any NFL games.)

I disagree on all your points.

Why would the NFL create or move a team to San Antonio and have them play in a stadium that is nearly 20 years old and grossly outdated?
It will not happen.

If San Antonio wants the NFL, then the city will have to build a new stadium.

And that will NEVER get approved on a bond. NEVER.

San Antonio wont even pass a bond for a light rail, which is needed much more than the NFL.

NFL in San Antonio will NEVER, EVER happen.

And for that I am thankful.

The last thing this city needs is another reason to drink.

Some people just can not accept the fact that the NFL views San Antonio how the rest of the country views them. And that is small market, second rate city.

Not the thriving business metro power some locals would lead you to believe.

The reason I brought it up (nismospec) is that the latest statement by the NFL Commissioner raising this possibility. Ohmanthatsneato: You may live to eat those words. The previous commissioner (Tagliabue) said that it was in the interest of the NFL to have a team (eventually) in San Antonio. But, you are right about the Alamodome. It would need major renovations, but in all likelihood, a new stadium. This is where teams/NFL/cities can get creative. Rail systems are pooped on in Texas - that wouldn't happen even if San Antonio had a billion dollars sitting around and nothing to spend it on. SA will get a team way before they approve a rail system. Plenty of cities have teams and still don't want a rail system, so the two are not dependent upon each other (obviously).
