      I'd be pissed if they gave Milwaukee a team(I realizr it'll never happen). They would fail miserably. We love our Packers and would not leave them for an expansion team.

        Probably taking things a little too literal

          I'm not anti-expansion, and I don't really think the league would be that watered down if they added another two teams, but I am not necessarily for it either.

          Two other cities that would have to be considered are Oklahoma City and Salt Lake City. Who was under consideration when the Jaguars and Panthers were added? I know St. Louis and Memphis were, and both are no longer options now. I feel bad for Memphis. They REALLY wanted an NFL team. I remember living there for about a year when I was 11 and there was a huge brick building at least five floors high that had the NFL logo painted on it and had a message to the commissioner on it. I think it was Rozelle at the time, but I can't remember.

            Jacksonville did much better this year. They sold all the tickets they had available. I don't think they will ever move and I think the town is one good playoff run away from really falling in love with the NFL. Seeing how pumped they got for the Monday night game against Pittsburgh was amazing. They didn't even need to cover the seats for that game...

              Ottawa might be a good choice for the Bills since Ottawa lost their football team

                That Pittsburgh game was electric. The Steelers fans that were there did all they could to support their team... but the were slowly silenced as their team was pounded into submission.

                After that game, I've never felt the team be so excited for the team. Not since the '96 playoff run.

                The city is growing. The fans are growing more loyal despite a lack of a winning season--- ticket renewals are occurring at a significantly higher percentage this year then they did last year.

                The Jags need to go deep into the playoffs. If they find their way into the Super Bowl in the next 3 years, you won't be able to pry this team out of Jacksonville with any amount of money.

                  Duval County-850,000
                  Hampton Roads area-1,500,000

                  If JAX does go deep in the playoffs, sure they'll stay, but in the next 5 years things dont turn out to well, odds arent in their favor

                    I agree with most everybody that the NFL should not expand anymore......talent is watered down as is.


                    If I were to select a market to move to though, it would probably be Portland, OR.....give the Seahawks at least one reasonably close away game per year.

                      That's a good thought but I suspect the NFL would consider both of those to be too small to support a team. Paul Tagliabue announced a couple of years ago that San Antonio was too small a market for a team, and they are the 7th largest city in the U.S. While I don't exactly where SLC ranks on that list, I know San Antonio is a lot bigger than OKC.

                          You do realize that about four or five counties make up Jacksonville, right? Duval, Clay, Baker, St. Johns... Jacksonville is geographically the largest city in America.

                            SLC has the Mormons and they have $$$. That was my train of thought there...

                              Ive heard Portland's a nice city but its a small market, but if a team came to Portland that would be great
