You better support the owner, he holds the key to the car.
    And each of those cities eventually got a team back, with the exception of LA, which everyone is worried will steal the Dolphins now, lol.

    I grew up with them just down the street. I've seen them at the Orange Bowl and JRS many times.
    They are to me MY Miami Dolphins.

    If they move, particularly out of state, they will be just some other team. I will end my support of the team, & the NFL and I will never again spend a single dime in the State of Florida or purchase any product or service owned by whoever the owner of the team who moved it may be at the time.

    In the grand scheme of things, I'm just a nobody, but this nobody will not be involved.

    really???!!!!!!

    "15 of the top 20 attendance figures in the NFL were in Los Angeles. The Rams also set the all-time attendance record with over 102,000 fans packing the Coliseum. While Los Angeles and Southern California loves baseball and basketball, the huge crowds that attend football games in LA are proof enough that the city of Angels is indeed a football town. The Rams drew well above the NFL average during their existence and the USC and UCLA football programs draw well above 60 and 70 thousand fans on a regular basis. On top of the overwhelming support for the local teams, the Los Angeles area produces many college football and NFL stars. As a matter of fact, the Pac-12 conference's success has a lot to do with the vast amount of football talent in the Los Angeles area."

    on top of that , this town hated the raiders , evenstill

    "The Raiders would often reach crowds of 80,000/90,000 mark when visiting teams like the 49ers, Chargers, and Rams and their fans came to the Coliseum. During those games, at least half of the fans were cheering for the "visiting" team."

    Clueless. NFL is huge in LA. So many fans want a team here. Tons of jerseys and gear of many different teams everywhere you look during Sundays.

    Honestly... with the way the world is changing and everything that is going on.. I'd probably stop watching NFL altogether. If the Dolphins moved to another state i'd not even tune in anymore. I understand, on the business side of things you want to get the most out of your product and if Ross and Dee feel they can get it somewhere else then so be it... The truth is.. Professional football is just a game. We as fans made it into a powerhouse of a business with our own money. Football players don't save lives or build homes for less fortunate people. They just play a game with a leather ball for millions of dollars....

    So, no I would not watch the game as they wouldn't be my local team any longer. I'm not really a fan of the NFL.. I'm a MIAMI Dolphins fan.

    Dude, that's the thing, they are fans of every other team except the LA teams. Unless the Raiders moved back, they could care less.

    If LA was such a great town to support an NFL team, why have they lost THREE teams already?

    Yo yo yo, homedawg, LA has exactly the same fanbase as Miami. They support winners and have no patience for perennial losers. Agree with that fan mindset or not, that's just hw it is. You have to know your market. They can both put up with a losing team every once in a while, but if a team isn't a legitimate contender for a championship more often than not, then they have better things to do. The Rams sucked for years and nobody went until they started competing. Once that ended, that awesome fanbase was gone again. Raiders got popular for a bit when the idiot thugbase latched on so they could pimp the black and silver look for a while, but even that died off and the team went back home.

    And it's not even limited to football. Nobody even knew where the Clippers played until they started winning. Then they had to google it so they could make an appearance at the new hot ticket in town, of course, not until halftime just like Lakers fans, but they showed! Once they start to suck again, they might as well put where they play on Apple maps, because nobody will care enough to actually find it.

    The football dollars in that town will continue to go to USC and UCLA until whatever team ends up there (Chargers or Raiders...again) starts winning, and only then.
