          I'm surprised Portland doesn't have a team.

              While there may be a lot of people, it's not a strong enough market for a football team.

                Here is an essay I wrote back in 8th grade about teams relocating
                Relocation of NFL Teams: Its all true. I am completely against teams moving:

                Have you ever wondered what happened to the cities that once had a NFL franchise? The relocation of a National Football League team can have devastating consequences to the fans, players and the city. Since 1960, eight NFL franchises relocated to a new area. Some cities got their team back after time, but some didn’t. Luckily, a NFL team has not moved in over ten years, but that might change in the future.
                Relocating NFL franchises can take a toll on the mentality of fans and players. In 1996, the Cleveland Browns moved to Baltimore and became know as the Ravens. The Browns’ fans revolted and filed over one-hundred lawsuits. During the Browns’ last game in Cleveland, chaos broke out. In the last moments of the game, fans started to tear apart the stadium. Seats and railings were ripped off and thrown. In 1984, the Baltimore Colts moved to Indianapolis overnight. According to Wikipedia.com, several Mayflower Transit trucks were dispatched and lugged all the equipment out of town at three o’clock in the morning. This affected the legal system of Baltimore. To prevent the relocation, Baltimore was going to pass a law (eminent by domain) which would put off the moving. However, the Colts owner and Indianapolis’ mayor reached an agreement before Maryland passed the bill. That was the reason for the abrupt relocation of the franchise. Relocation of a NFL franchise can affect the lives of the players, too. Once their team moves, they have to move too. The players are forced to sell their houses and buy new ones. Their children will have to make new friends and attend a different school. If a player becomes stressed over these things, it may negatively affect their performance on the field. Relocation can cause havoc for a city, players and fans.
                Many restaurants and retail stores rely on a team for their success. Sports bars bring in more people if they are on TV. More people will mean more money. There are also countless stores that rely on the teams merchandise and memorabilia. If the team were to move the store will have an extraordinarily tough time surviving. If a team store were to close, the employed become unemployed. Personally, not including ticket prices, I have spent over five-hundred dollars on Bills memorabilia and merchandise in my lifetime. If the team moves, all my Bills belongings become worthless.
                I surveyed twenty-five people over eighteen years of age about the topic of moving a NFL franchise. Not surprisingly, twenty-four believed that if a team where to relocate, it would negatively affect the fans, players, and the city. I asked the one person for his reasoning for being a proponent of moving a franchise. He wanted too see a bigger city like Los Angeles with a team. He also said the small market teams should be replaced with large market teams. I countered his argument by explaining how the Los Angeles Rams had to move in the first place. It was due to poor attendance at their football games. I also explained how a team that moved to a new area may have a small fan base because of the team’s performance. If the team plays poorly in the beginning, many fans will be turned away. The team wont have the loyal smaller market Packers, Browns, Bills, etc. fans that always sellout no matter the teams record. About three-hundred people took a survey asking many questions about expansion and relocation of the NFL on Misterpoll.com. One question was “What NFL team(s) should be moved?” The answer with the most votes was “The NFL doesn't need to relocate”. Thirty-one percent of the people believed no team should move.
                The relocation of a NFL franchise can produce drastic consequences. It can hurt the mental state of the fans. Also, players’ lives will change along with their family. The moving of a team will negatively affect the financial situation of the city. Businesses that rely on Bills memorabilia will go bankrupt. Some of the best sports bars will have a difficult time staying open. The best way to prevent the relocation of your favorite team is to buy tickets and support your team. Though it’s a possibility, hopefully we will not witness a relocation of a National Football League franchise in our life time.

                  id watch the giants at a high school gymnasium for all i care.


                  The problem with LA is its fickle fan base. They love the Lakers bc theyre always good. They pretend to love USC. But football has too much parity for a team to constantly be good, and during bad times, that football team won't be supported in LA.

                    Seriously. The Kings, Clippers, and Lakers all play in the Staples center. Say something?

                      the kings and the clippers suck, but there's no talk of them being moved. I think LA should get another chance at a football team. its been 15 years or so.

                        Kings play at Arco Arena.
                        Which is in sacramento. Which is 385 miles from Los Angeles.
                        And Seattle to Portland is 185 miles, and they never had problems filling up The Rose Garden and Key for a while.
                        but you were saying?

                              I still think a team in Vegas would boom moreso than LA

                                First off, the cut of 2 million is proposed--meaning it hasn't been passed yet. The Mayor proposed the cut, and he is extremely unpopular, and it would not surprise me to see City Council ignore the cut and not include it in the final budget.

                                Second, both the Royals and the Chiefs have invested millions of dollars into their stadiums, and both have received millions of dollars from the public. I would be shocked to see either leave.
