I've been thinking a lot about this recently, I don't know why but what teams from the league would you want to be moved or contracted from the league if you were the Commish? This is excluding teams that already have won a Super Bowl in the past so you can't cut the Pats no matter how much we hate them. This also excludes older teams such as the Cardinals. First team to go.....Cincinnati Bengals.

I have been hearing that the Saints might move within the next year or two. I dont really know where they might end up though.

For my own sanity I'd love to see the eagles demolished. Get rid of the team, the stadium, coaches and owners. Shut up those a holes here in Philly:fire:

Fox Sports is reporting today that Tom Benson, owner of the Saints, is strongly considering moving the Saints after the 2005 season. The top places he might move the team to are San Antonio, Los Angeles or Albuquerque.

LA definately. But Anaheim applied to build a stadium, so that might be the outsider.

Saints might be moving to L.A.

I think we should get rid of the Patriots or at least move them to Delaware. Home field advantage in Delaware...oh boy.

They are considering Anaheim as Los Angeles.

On Tuesday, Anaheim officials unveiled plans for a football stadium near the home of the baseball Angels that could house an NFL franchise by 2008. Anaheim is one of four sites in the greater Los Angeles area being considered for an NFL franchise. The others are the Los Angeles Coliseum, the Rose Bowl in Pasadena and a proposed stadium in Carson.

Na, you haven't met bad fans until you have met Eagle fans. They have a freaking jail and court in the stadium for crying out loud!

IMO, Los Angeles is where they will need to move because they will get better attraction to players there.

I'm not a fan of moving teams. You simply shuffle a problem. It's a BS, stupid move. Keep teams where they are, and, they stay. I don't know about anyone here, but, when the Browns came back, I almost cried. That is a franchise that should ALWAYS be in the NFL.


That said......

The Cards...Gotta say it.....CYA!


The Rams?

I would feel really, really dirty if the Saints moved.

It's not right.

I would say that bringing them back was a waste of time, but it seems so far that Crennel has done a good job there, I would give them 3 more years for them to get their assesin gear before kicking them out, after all they are a work in progress.

I wouldnt want to contract any team, or add for that matter. And the first city to get a relocated team would have to be LA. Mexico City? Not going to happen. There are 3 stadium proposals in the LA area, one in Carson one in Anaheim and playing at the Rose Bowl. I live between Carson and Anaheim so either location would be great :)

Giants? move?? ....to the WEST COAST?? :roflmao:

The Jets will have their own stadium built in a few years.

With respect, I think you are wrong. Cleveland is a great sports town, and, the NFL is better with them. Not every team should be on a coast.

Not every team can win every year.

Tradition means somthing, I think, not just winning.

Actually both teams will have new stadiums. I am pretty sure I heard just a week or so ago that the Giants are going to build a new stadium. Truthfully though New York doesn't deserve three teams. I think they show rename the Giants to the "New Jersey Giants" to help balance things out and since they currently play in New Jersey and not New York.

Even though you said exclude the Cardinals, they would have been one of my choices. I think they should be moved to a more populated city and maybe they'd get more attendance, but they just got a brand new stadium so that won't be happening anytime soon. I would have to say the Saints or Browns. Also Jets (move them to NY).

I agree with you. NY doesn't need 3 teams, they have the north and south both covered.. They've both played in NJ for this long, mind as well make one team stay.

I agree, it has been in the air for some time now that the Saints are going to move. My big question is though, do they become the Los Angeles Saints? Or a new team mascot(like the Titans when they moved from Hoston to Tennesse)?

I think a lot of talk about teams possibly relocating comes down to STADIUM rights.....Minnesota has been wanting to get out of the Metrodome so they could be relocating after they get a new owner. The Saints could just use a new place to play and a fresh start.....Cincinatti is probably the least favorite place for NFL players to play (see Corey Dillon)...I think any of these three teams could relocate with LA being the logical location. The LA Saints has a nice ring to it.

i think it would make sense not to change the name to keep the "heavenly" theme (angels and saints)

L.A. makes no financial sense, though, at this point, because of TV deals. Currently, L.A. viewers see various teams throughout the season and therefore the league makes more money because of higher exposure. Put an average-to-bad team there and you lose that exposure, along with a lot of money. And why on Earth does Albuquerque deserve a professional football team?

The Raiders could move to Las Vegas. Then, Al Davis would sue the city for the following reasons:

Casinos were left open during home games which hurt attendance.
Vegas bookmakers refused to automatically pick the Raiders.
Wayne Newton refused to dress up like a pirate for his shows.

Then, the Radiers would return to Oakland after the city offered them a new stadium.
Davis would then sue Oakland for not offering the stadium earlier, thus causing the team to suffer through the aborted Vegas deal. :lol:

San Antonio and Albuquerque are bargaining chips to force Los Angeles to get its act together. Now that Arizona, San Diego, and Indianapolis have their stadium deals worked out, the Saints and Vikings are Los Angeles' last two chances to get back into the NFL.

I heard a viable option could be and would be a monsterous opportunity, is in VEGAS! The NFL could make $$$$ like you would not believe. The NFL is concerned about betting on the games. What??? like that can't be done from Boston or Minnesota. Last I knew every player and damn near every fan has a cell and knows a bookie.
Vegas is the fastest growing city in the U.S. 300,000 moving in and 100,000 moving out a year. 200,000 newbies in 1 yr is a larger population than South Dakota or North Dakotas largest city. In the last 5 years Vegas has gained more residents than either of those 2 states taotal population.

Red has wanted to move the Queens to San Antone since he got em. Couldn't get it done so he wants to sell them. Now this new group could try to move them to L.A., in the footsteps of the Lakers and name them the Anahiem Vikings of Los Angelas. Hoping that maybe then they might get atitle.
