Check out this article:
For an exercise, in the flavor of my blog, I'll suppose on moving all three teams (even if supposedly Jacksonville cannot contractually move anytime soon).
Los Angeles Rams
London Jaguars, I don't care, even if my preference is for them to hike over to Toronto and camp at all of the CFL stadiums under the name "Norde Force".
West Coast Raiders of Portland and Las Vegas
What if there were an Eastland team? Where would its camps be?
The NFL has pretty good coverage, most especially in the east. Terribly so in Florida. Perhaps SEC Country could have more pro football (Mississippi, Alabama and Little Rock)???
|Is Little Rock south or east?|
Could an Eastland brand co-locate in Louisville, Jacksonville (after the Jags leave), Little Rock or Jackson, Miss, St. Louis (after the Rams vacate), Atlantic City, Richmond, Charleston (WV or SC), Columbus and Hartford (or is New England too possessive?).
Gun to your head: which cities and how many home (camp) games each for the Eastland Chargers brand?
|Back in L.A.|
|West Coast Raiders in Portland and Las Vegas|
St. Louis could still share a brand of football while perhaps a California-named franchise in Los Angeles, like the California Rams would be better suited for southern Cali. And Jacksonville, ....according to me, your town is great for a camp of some East or Southern brand.
But hey, what do I know? I would also dictate the Jets of New York to be part of London in the form of the Atlantic Coast Jets.
See more expansion and relocation talk for football, baseball, basketball, hockey and soccer on my blog (starting in Feb 2014, see table of contents/archive): Major League/Pro Expansion <CLICK> http://prosportsexpansion.blogspot.com/ The first post lays out some of the concept.
And please feel free to contribute your two cents with mine.
