Ontario Gold Horseman NHL Expansion Team should be Toronto's team two too

Ontario Gold Stallions/Mustangs/Horseman NHL Expansion Team should be Toronto's team two, too.

As thematically recognized throughout my blog, the next team near Toronto should not carry the namesake of the Maple Leafs city.  A broad name for all of Ontario is more appropriate and appreciated.  A broader base is always better business.

Hamilton has a site ready for some play.
The Nordiques and Horseman can duke it out when the teams are in play.

Hamilton, Ontario.  Greater Toronto.

American City Metropolitans Major League Baseball Team Las Vegas. And National Football League Expansion.

I have so many examples I could use to combine a team in the pro sports with Las Vegas.  Plenty of them can be seen in my blog.  If any city can do it, it's Las Vegas.  And by combining, I mean a team that plays home games in two places.  Example:  the Oakland Athletics are struggling in business terms to get a new stadium.  Let Las Vegas build a stadium and rename the franchise the "West Coast Athletics".

That makes for more options among other gains such as apparel sales skyrocketing.  When you read this were you thinking about the Raiders, also?  Me too.  And I think about Portland, and how there is another baseball and football team in a matter of about 20 miles from Oakland.


Las Vegas already has a backdrop with Lady Liberty
The Mets Triple A affiliate is already there as the Area 51s.  Vegas already possesses a statue of liberty and a NYC backdrop on the strip.


Selfish NYC, share the Mets with Sin City.  Let them take a bite out of the Big Apple.  Compete for American affection on the same level as the Yankees or silly Cowboys do trying to lay claim as "America's Team", spanning the country.  Your minor league presence plus the Metros with a growing amount of series gradually barnstorming town could only increase fan growth.  And Met fans visitors.
Can you dig?  This Ohio girl might not.

NYC, consider the same thing with the Jets of Jersey.

Consider both Las Vegas and Portland for everything I just said.

Any of the Big Five Sports Leagues Could Fail

Or wane.

And the most sure way that this can happen is to think that it cannot happen.

Intersecting business and politics is the reality of it all.

It's hard to imagine it now.  Many men like manly distractions and deer hunting can be hard and patient work.  Politics glazes over many o' eyeballs.   And as time goes on, options increase.

The NFL is absent from Los Angeles, where there are two baseball, basketball, soccer and essentially hockey teams.  I've seen a lot of chatter about people who could care less about Sunday football in the second largest city in America.  Some of the bickering is about the communist National Football League not wanting to invest in itself with much other than the taxpayer's money.  I mean, after all, they are a Non-profit! (?). 

The NBA is absent from plenty of major league cities like Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, St. Louis and Seattle.  The business of it all can be a turn-off.  What about when borderline illiterate athletes are paid to play in college (in one way or another)?  I'm for the health care but what about when it goes beyond that?  Endorsement deals and sweet sales jobs out of NCAA ball could be the mountain top if professional gladiator football were to fall out of favor.  Perhaps we will discover the amount of hits a body can take is more finite than we think.  Colleges aren't private entities.  Citizens as stock holders in varied degrees is debatable.

If Cincinnati or Seattle had to choose between the NBA or NHL, I bet the NHL would win out.
And I bet Pittsburgh and especially St. Louis (with all of the blatantly hints of same old racist parent-child-like stupidity going on) could care less about having big league basketball's skewed demographics to represent their cities.
I believe it is called "real talk".  Am I wrong?






Just
Sayin'

College ball has legions of football and basketball to compete with big leagues.

Domestic abuse from Gladiators.  Idiotic, millionaire, rebellious babymama dramatic behavior might start to turn off people that start to have economic distractions and woes of their own.  When polygamist rights officially takes to the forefront much like reproductive relations and responsibility takes place today in a culture that likes to talk about how "it takes a village", behaviors on an individual level, especially those of the rich, will fall under tighter scrutiny.  Twitterrazzi goin to get better or worse?

People that seemingly have 100 word vocabularies to show for their attendance at UCLA or A&M can start to grate on a population that will hopefully get smarter as the years go on.  Perhaps the collegiate level will require more for its attendance other than that in the seats and some television power ranking.

Who can afford to concentrate their affections with hockey.  ... In the era of investing in the one-sport athlete.  ... Year 'round?  Where ice easily melts?  And stuff like equipment and ice still cost money?

In Cincinnati, we're endeared to Pete Rose, but he's not necessarily who'd I would want to parade around in front of some hot girlfriend I happened to land from Standford'.  I appreciated his hustle and heart on the field; not so much admiration for his brain for much outside of Cincinnati streets or the diamond.

The thoughts of gladiator disaffection could creep into MLB attendance figures.  People like an excuse to get outside and this bodes well for baseball.  We like to take some mental breaks in the sway of the pastime slow breeze in front of the television.  And we like something to keep our mind going while stuck inside the house.  And more and more, after the kiddos tackle the soccer field for football a new major league is burgeoning and we can turn the kids to watch those pros play after the wee ones' own scrimmages.

The sure thing is that things do change.

Big League Expansion without increasing Number of Franchises. Definite No Doubts.

     

Oakland A's     Oakland Raiders     LAFC (Chivas)

Tampa Rays     LA Clippers     Jaguars     Arizona Coyotes     Angels     Rams


West Coast Athletics
Changing the name of the Athletics from Oakland to "West Coast".  That's money ball.  The franchise is definitely having issues.  All mentioned franchises I mention here do.  Co-locating them in Las Vegas.  It would work part-time in Oakland (obviously) and Portland.

This isn't sacrilege outside of Oaktown.  Consideration for a new stadium in places like Sacramento or Santa Clara.  The A's used to be Philadelphia and Kansas City before being in the Bay area 17 miles away from the world champ Giants playground.

I'm pretty sure, Las Vegas can be marketed and justified with almost any brand.  Co-locating anything from the Jets in football (and maybe even hockey) to a rebirth of the Expos in the form of the Las Vegas Montreal Expos.

Tampa Bay Monterrey Rays
bigleaguedreams.com
The Tampa Rays playing somewhere else, part-time.  Their television market is awesome but let's get more butts in the seats.  If breaking ground, go ahead and break it big.  Co-locate with Monterrey and the Mexican nation.  Tampa Bay Monterrey Rays.  Could Charlotte work out instead?

California Angels
Also play somewhere in northern California, whether that be an Athletics vacancy or the capable capital in Sacramento.  Not definites in my mind but nods to consider are Yankees in Buffalo and Rangers in San Antonio or Austin.


                    West Coast Raiders
Same towns as options as mentioned with the A's (minus the 49ers Santa Clara).  Las Vegas for sure.

                    Jacksonville Jaguars and twice a month anywhere can pretty much work out.  For a south brand, the 3rd NFL city in the citrus can share with the likes of Birmingham, Louisville and any other big southern stadium as a Southland brand.

The Rams or anyone back to LA is a humongous screaming "no duh".

                    West Coast Clippers
San Diego could even share some love with Los Angeles.  But for some breathing room, Seattle and Las Vegas are no brainers.

                    West Coast Coyotes
Portland and/or Seattle as a share.  I'm inclined to say Las Vegas or Arizona because of the approximate 300 mile separation and Las Vegas's tourist crowd, it could probably co-exist  with a stake in Vegas.

                    West Coast United
Instead of a redundant Los Angeles squad as a Chivas reincarnation.
You guessed it:  share it with Las Vegas.

When Arizona gets MLS, put it in Tucson.


Las Vegas is a big winner in everything I said.  It is the most certain town in my mind for a share in all of the leagues.  They could build Las Vegas Big Leagues metroplex to suit the Big Five sports and more.  It's apt to have the cash for erecting top notch facilities and ticket packages from entertainment firms.  It would likely be the second home for a loving legion, needing an extra nudge to see Vegas perhaps, of the road team fan base.

This is at least five more big league events and cities and with the broad stretch of a West Coast brand it is a big amount of apparel dollars.

Home of the Louisville Bats, the Triple-A affiliate of the Reds, it's about a hundred miles down river from Cinci.

In Dayton, a Reds Country visit would be nice further from Kentucky.


Consider the Cincinnati River (Run) Reds of Louisville Home Stretch Series and Reds Country in Dayton.  Play the Braves for a series in Kentucky and the Tigers in Dayton.  That's tagging our AAA and AA affiliates.

Memphis is Red Birds turf.  Nashville is debatable turf.  What do you see for the mentioned region and beyond that?

Arizona Diamondbacks of Albuquerque MLB Expansion

I know.  Las Vegas would be a better idea as a combination of towns:

ie.  San Diego Padres of Vegas ( click:  Major League Baseball in Las Vegas ) 
I could say a venue for the Las Vegas Diamondbacks of Arizona or some such.

New Mexico is sandwiched in between Texas Rangers and Diamondback country.  Topped off by Rockies.
There is alliteration in the name Arizona D'Backs of Albuquerque and it's a closer camp to the home field than is Dallas.

Equidistant to this possible Diamondback claim I say is the Colorado Rockies home in Denver.
Arizona
Aesthetically, as well, both Colorado's team and that of Arizona can lay claim.  The color of the ground around Albuquerque has more of the desert flair of Arizona.  While I give the mountain'esque view a little more similarity on the side with Denver, Phoenix is a part of a mountain chain as well.

It's an aesthetic dream either way.  I'm sure those in New Mexico would love either way for a MLB brand of Albuquerque.
Albuquerque
About 400 miles apart, it's about the same distance apart as the combat grounds of the Reds is to the Braves.  Asking baseball fans from Kentucky or Tennessee which brand of baseball they identify with might be murkier than asking a New Mexican if they prefer the 'Backs, Rockies or Rangers, but I know how a brand could lock in more loyalty.  A 20,000 seat adobe ball park would be neat to envision if the 13k current seats in town isn't suitable for MLB, where the Isotopes AAA baseball team plays. It's affiliated currently with the Rockies.  But right now, I'm talking one series.  A most appropriate site for a Rockies and Diamondbacks showdown.

Midlakes Mustangs NHL Expansion Team

An Exponential NHL Move?
Before, I have formulated options for a West Coast and East Coast named team in my blog.  Also, I have schemed up some Westward, Southlakes, or Northland/Great Lakes.  I have even schemed a Dakota NHL brand and another for Omaha.  A look can be had on the links at the bottom.

I think a Midland brand would be neat. The name "Midlakes" gives it more of that hockey feel.  Houston is a hockey melt.  So here are the places I'm thinking about for this travel-tag-team camps:  Housed in Austin, Omaha and Williston, ND.  And even Saskatoon.  Nothing else NHL in that province so I almost would want that town to be a sure thing in on the deal.  And yes, Kansas City is of consideration.  Should a town fail out, KC has a great arena, though I note that the Blues are already in-state.

A West Coast Whales with an East Coast Whalers taking on the North Coast Great Lakers and Southlakes Predators versus the Midlakes Mustangs is an interesting alternative for the NHL's planned 4 team expansion. That's 9 more NHL cities than planned.

West Coast (Seattle, Las Vegas and/or Portland)
                    I wish it was the Coyotes.
East Coast (Hartford, Norfolk)
Southlakes (Nashville merger co-locating with Atlanta)
North Coast (Toronto2 and/or Quebec City with Cleveland and Milwaukee)

A Great Lakes brand could also set sights for Cincinnati, upstate New York and Indianapolis.  Plenty of play with these geographic justifications.

Any of these and Midlakes jump out at you?  And ideas?  See some links about what I've been talking about below.

Monterrey Padres. The Pads [Pods] landing MLB in Mexico with a San Diego Share.

Wouldn't 20 MLB games for the San Diego Padres be awesome in a newly constructed Mexican baseball gem of a ball park?  Surely, our friends south of the border would think so.

A big league team having two homes is nothing brand spanking new.  The NBA's Kansas City-Omaha Kings called Missouri and Nebraska home before they moved to Sacramento.  Before the Padres place on a border town occurred to me, I thought that a struggling place with fans' butts sitting in the stands like Tampa could culminate into the Tampa-Monterrey Rays International Baseball Club.  And this is still my preference.  But in very recent history a business fact has planted itself into reality.  Television market money revenue is very important, and Tampa represents one of the largest pieces of this fact.  (  see:  TV Market Money More Important Than The Gate? ).

Still, whatever thoughts reside in Tampa, I don't have much hope for the organization getting thoughts of ingenuity, although I have to respect the future mountains to be scaled by the Rays marketing department.
Williamsport, PA little league World Series home would be a good model to be built on a bigger scale in Mexico


The Padres of Monterrey on a part-time basis could work wonders for MLB's expansion studies.

Monterrey is poised for a share in all but hockey.  I have talked about a Texas Divided franchise to compete with Dallas FC and the Dynamo.  That team as a travel-tag-team pairing for San Marcos, TX and Monterrey would be fun.  Any inconvenience in cost for two facilities could surely be offset from long term apparel sales for new found turf in camping the brand in more territory in name and place.

Look at the below map.  Which team would do best to premiere a couple home stands of regular season series in Las Vegas?

The Padres have the least amount of historical nostalgia on this map with concerns to MLB history.

And which territory could stretch itself for more fan support?
The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim is the name of a team already.
So what about the Los Angeles Dodgers of Las Vegas?  What about a certain amount of series taking place in a newly built Vegas ballpark?
San Diego Padres of Vegas?

And what about the Arizona Diamondbacks of Las Vegas.  That would be my vote if a share of a relocated/co-located Athletics didn't come to be.  One shared for Las Vegas and/or a Oakland/Portland partnership.  Envision, the West Coast Athletics.  Below-linked I talk about it.  I also talk of a team that would be housed in the Inland Empire (Riverside/San Bernadino California area as well as Las Vegas).  Las Vegas could afford the venue for sure.

Sin City Flights. An innovative expansion or co-location/relocation for NBA or NHL

West Coast is biggest Gap in the Big Five Sports

Seattle and Portland for hockey.
Las Vegas for everything.
Sacramento craves MLB.

These can be argued as some of the biggest gaps in the country.  If Las Vegas lands hockey, all mentioned are major league towns.

And last, but not least:
The NFL is absent from the second largest metro in America.  Los Angeles. 
But hopefully the Rams will be back soon.  It's a gaping hole.


          The map picture from the New York Times indicates some magnetism surrounding Las Vegas.  (  Inland Empire Emperors. #MLBExpansion Relocation and Co-Location Las Vegas MLB )

But what about Portland and Seattle in hockey.  Las Vegas is likely to get the nod alongside Seattle.  And Portland will be in the same seat as Sacramento with just an NBA team in the bigs.  No doubt each league is craving to get to that sin city sandwich first, even as it lays between southern California and Arizona franchises.  Someone wants to be the first big league there.  Maybe baseball wouldn't really mind being last.  Poor Portland has proximity to the other TV markets and plays bridesmaid to Seattle.  It's bigger than a few current (though historical) baseball markets.

Honorable mentions out west outside of the Inland Empire and northern California for future consideration are Boise, Salt Lake City and maybe even Albuquerque.

Other honorable mentions throughout the blog include the likes of Austin (75 miles and 150 from San Antonio and Houston), Louisville (100 from Cincinnati and Indianapolis) and other future newbies.

Let's put the NHL in the more magnetized and foghorn sounding northwest, the NFL in LA
and hit them newbies in Austin and Louisville.  The NFL is sustainable as a weekly venue in OKC or Little Rock.   If you consider my share idea (a (tag) team for two cities), this can happen very soon for any sport, not necessarily needing to expand the number of teams in a league.  ie.  Putting the California Angels in Sacramento, also (or Oakland, then freeing up the A's to play in Portland and Las Vegas as the West Coast A's).  Raiders?
Dig it?

Inland Empire Emperors. #MLBExpansion Relocation and Co-Location Las Vegas MLB

The 13th biggest metropolitan area in America has what for America's past time?  A reasonable drive west to the Angels or Dodgers or maybe the Padres.

                          en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inland_Empire
The minor league 66ers Club.

Let us call a new team the Emperors.  Perhaps a penguin on a future Buffalo MLB team in the Empire State, but I'm just brainstorming.  The IE. Examples sounds pretty hilarious.

If you built the Empire's ball park in between Riverside and San Bernardino you would have about an equidistant triangle for Anaheim, LA and Inland's team spread of stadiums.  This would kind of be reminiscent of baseball's NYC past with a simultaneous Giants, Dodgers and Yankees co-existence. 

200 miles northeast is Las Vegas.  This would be a great place for the Inland Empire's second stadium.  Sharing claim with the city of Sin can possess shine in the east Los Angeles area over that of the Hollywood coast glitz and glam.

Personally, as can be seen throughout my blog, I have a preference for the West Coast brand.  (ie. the West Coast Athletics of Las Vegas, Portland and/or Oakland/Sacramento) and a California Angels co-location in Oaktown or Sac-town.

And at this time I sensibly prefer relocation (co-location) over expansion.  So, in the name of spreading the love to the likes of Portland, I don't really see expansion happening for the Inland Empire soon at all.  But with Las Vegas and two stadiums, I see the brand possible.

Re-coin the Florence Freedom the Tri-State Freedom Riders


Freedom's field ( wikipedia.org/wiki/UC_Health_Stadium ) holds 4,500 people.  I'd argue for an upgrade and a more encompassing re-brand.

www.milb.com/index.jsp?sid=l128
I like the Freedom.  If they wouldn't be named "Tri-State" I'd like to see it named Northern Kentucky.  Rule requires players live within a 10 mile circumference so that limits the stretch of Cincinnati living.

Maybe I would do this as world sports dictator, and as part of my job of doing things like building cricket fields and stadiums in the likes of North America and building stadiums of the world, I would have to have pro players bringing their example of play to places with regularity.  And stadiums would be erected world wide.  For a time, cricket stadiums could be used for baseball and football stadiums can host top notch soccer.  As a startup, the above list is how I would kick start world play.

Do you see the Expos on the west coast of the U.S. on the World Map?  Supposing that I don't get what I want in the form of the West Coast Athletics playing in Las Vegas in addition to Oakland and/or Portland, I'll stick with my wishes for a tag-team of the Las Vegas-Montreal International Expose.

MLB Columbus. Cincinnati Reds of Ohio. Cleveland Indians of Indianapolis. MLB Indianapolis

A diversity of baseball fans and MLB franchise embrace live within the open arms of Indiana and Columbus.

Were more regular season Major League Baseball games to take place in the capitals of Ohio and Indiana, more Indians and Reds hats would be claimed.

Columbus is in the middle of two MLB teams, and other sports.  It's middle ground.
Same for Indianapolis as it lies arguably within Cubs, Cardinals and Reds territory, mostly.  The Indianapolis Indians are affiliated with the pesky Pirates.

Ignoring money as an issue for a moment, and forgetting the sold out usage of Triple-A baseball stadiums, pretend that the Reds built a 25-30k seat ball park in Columbus.  The Clippers could use it.  The community could use it.  The Buckeyes could use it.  It could be built for multi-usage, from concerts to picnics.

And let's say the Reds commit 4 homestands there.  Let's say it's a huge success and this embassy is showing significant revenue in apparel sales for Cincinnati.  Well, even in an imagination where money isn't so much of the issue, let's say that it's not very practical for the Indians to counter in Columbus with such another stadium.  Perhaps they just do 4 homestands at the Clippers park (currently their minor league affiliate).  Perhaps they just do two premiere stints a year there.



And perhaps Cleveland could make a bolder expedition.  They could do two bad ass home stints camping at the Clippers and then build a 25-30k seat place in Indy, thumbing their nose at apparel and affection for the Cubs and Cardinals as well as the Reds.

Me thinks before this kind of glutenous money is more a reality than imaginable, Indianapolis will already have that MLB squad they've been dreaming about.  Spitballin'.

What do you think about ideas like this and my tag-travel-team ideas in the blog (ie. West Coast Athletics playing half of their games in Las Vegas) ???
