Maybe as far as where is Minnesota, Milwaukee, Cleveland, Buffalo, etc etc ?????
|More expansion currently slated for New York and Florida|
What about a broad market for the next franchise?
What about something called "Northland"?
What about "Southland"?
As a dictator, I envision Minnesota's twin cities and Milwaukee for a north team. I can also think of Boise and the occasional use of oil boom towns in the Dakotas as a co-location.
In the south, I think the likes of Louisville, New Orleans, Nashville, Charlotte and of course Atlanta are interesting.
I continually argue that a region team is needed in the major sports pro leagues to be more inclusive to a bigger fan base of the outlands by camping out in multiple locations for "home" (camp) games. For instance, look at an instance, whether that be the NFL or MLB where a Portland/Las Vegas playing team named "West Coast" can bring in a ton of fans and sell a ton of jerseys.
