They will probably get a team, with the amount of money they're willing to throw at the stadium project.

 

The Jags would actually make a lot of sense, and who would know better about spending a billion on a stadium and putting a losing product on the field inside it than Jerry Jones.

Spend a billion on a stadium and still add in temporary seats so people can get hurt during the SB

Where was that breakdown showing profit. Some of the teams on that list were playing a crapload better than their fan attendance was showing. Those are the teams that have my bet.

Jacksonville makes sense. Weak fanbase, small market, bad team. They could move the team to LA and put them in the NFC West. Move the St. Louis Rams to the AFC South. Everything makes sense geographically, everyone's happy.


The only issue with moving the Rams to the AFC South is if they themselves relocate to LA. Then where do they go?

As it stands if the Jags move to LA - which I doubt if their owner is sincere - then wouldn't it be easier to move them to the AFC West?

I guess the issue there is the rivalries between those four teams and tradition, but putting the LA Jaguars in that division might be better. Though they could keep them in the AFC South. It isn't like the divisions are set up exactly correct geographically anyway - eg.Rams in the West, Cowboys in the East etc.

I actually hope LA gets a team and has success. I have nothing against them. One thing I would hope, though, is that if someone relocates, they also get a new identity. The LA Chargers or LA Jaguars is just boring, imo. If they want people to care they should do a rebranding and create a new team, like the Ravens did.

Anyone who holds there training camp that far away from where there team is based to "Increase there fanbase" is too much of an attention ***** for me to pay too much attention to.

Arizona should lose their team and just have the Cardinals go back to St. Louis and bring the Rams back to LA. I hate it when teams move. The only one I've grown accustomed to is the Baltimore Ravens.

Wouldn't be the first time the divisions were screwed up geographically. Remember when Falcons and Panthers were in the NFC West?

Of course I have a sense of humor.  My post should have mad that at least evident.  No more internet votes to place so its back to throat slashing on the main forum! LOL
