    Probably 2 in LA. Although I think it's dumb. 32 is more than enough. A team will move there eventually.

    Re: Interesting Expansion Story

    We just had a 'football day' in our office. My highly casual poll showed that no one team has a hold on this market. At least 11 different teams were represented that I counted and no more than 3 fans were seen for any one team. This is a large office too.

    LA could be fools gold for the NFL.

    Mike Florio (sp?) was hosting Dan Patrick the other day and said it sounds like the NFL is gearing up to have a London franchise. I think that's a really bad idea.

    There is no way that happens. The logistics make no sense. I could see them playing more games in Europe, but not putting a franchise there.

    I would love this -- London is one of my favorite cities. Hope this happens.

    Re: Interesting Expansion Story

    Toronto would be a good location.

    Also, I'd think Vegas and Portland would be potential spots. Still kinda surprises me that Vegas has no pro sports franchises.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Interesting Expansion Story

    London, and its a truly awful idea.. St Louis is a viable candidate to move there.

    -There lease is up in 3 yrs
    -They are playing a game a year there the next three years
    -There owner owns the soccer team and stadium there

    The NFL in STL is doomed. People well remember the PSL scam from the now obsolete Dome and a new stadium is extremely unlikely........ if not impossible. London is a great idea.

    Re: Interesting Expansion Story

    Portland recently added the Timbers for the MLS so I could see them getting an NFL team too.
