Too poor? Really?

San Antonio named best-performing city in America - San Antonio Business Journal

San Antonio Texas Named Best Overall Metro Area in United States

I can go on and on... all you have to do is your research... why is that so hard for some people? It's just like with politics... people want to run their mouths about things they "hear" but don't want to research the "facts". Facts are real.

We are lacking the big money corporations that most NFL teams have.

Some more FACTS. According to the website Fortune 500 2011: Cities with most companies - FORTUNE on CNNMoney.com San Antonio is headquarters of more Fortune 500 companies than the following NFL cities: Buffalo, Boston, Miami, Baltimore, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Nashville, Denver, Kansas City, San Diego, Washington DC, Detroit, Green Bay, New Orleans, Tampa, Seattle. I didn't list Oakland because of it's proximity to San Francisco. And if AT&T would have not left, San Antonio would be home to 6 rather than 5 and place it ahead of Cleveland, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Phoenix. So again, whenever you speak, PLEASE know the facts first!

I see what you're doing. You're strolling this board.

Good job.

Maybe you're not strolling....

Maybe you believe the things you post. If so..

FYI, here's a UK site detailing poverty levels in America's metros.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/datab...st-poverty-map

San Antonio has lower poverty than many NFL cities of comparable size. Lower poverty than many larger metro areas as well.

No we're not. This reason gets stated so often without any actual proof behind it.

There are 5 F500 companies in the SA area. Countless other big companies.

Many more than places like Jacksonville, Tampa, Cleveland, St. Louis, Buffalo, New Orleans, etc.

Yes its true, if you ever go to an NFL game take a look at the big corporations who actually support team. Again we cant compare to the other NFL towns. I mean look at the cities you mentioned and they all have big $$ support from the big companies.

Again, what are you talking about? SA has enough largest companies and enough F500 companies as well.

That's the part you seem to have trouble understanding for some reason.
