    Virginia Beach alone is 302, the whole Hampton Roads area even more

      Hells no. But another team to root for, when they are not playing the cowboys.

        Well, when talking about this land area, it's Duval county only. You can include the surrounding counties for fanbase, but ther reason Jacksonville is largest in the 48 is because the whole (large) county of Duval is included. Other cities only count a smaller area as a city, but are regarded as larger because of population and the massiv greater areas.
        Right, but I am talking about where fans come from. For the Patriots, fans come from Albany, NY and Portland, Maine for the games regularly, and that is the same distance as Orlando is from Jacksonville. The Patriots Stadium is in the middle of nowhere. The Jaguars stadium is smack dab in the middle of downtown Jacksonville. I consider anyone in the 3 hour drive radius of Jacksonville to be their fan base or where they draw from.

        And the city limits of Jacksonville is something like 752 sq. miles, which still makes it the biggest. I just listed all the counties surrounding. St. Johns and Clay, if I remember correctly, are the two that tie into the city limits. I was also told in 2005 at the Jacksonville Apartment Association monthly group pow wow that the city was expected to grow 125% by 2010, putting them over 1.5 million just in the city limits. That's why there are new houses and condos being built EVERYWHERE. I guess having Blue Cross and AOL in town paid off haha...

        And the entire Hampton Roads area is still smaller geographically then the city of Jacksonville.

          I don't care where as long as it is not outside of the United States of America!!

          Canada removed all the teams from the CFL after Baltimore won the Grey Cup so USA should never allow Canada to have a team.

            And it's the National Football League.

                Why? There's really no good reason for that. Why would having a Candian NFL team negatively effect the NFL in any way?

                        I don't think you're understanding what a three hour radius from Jacksonville is:



                        I don't dispute that the area is big... but I am pretty confident Jacksonville has just as much or more to work with...

                          How did this turn into an argument about land mass? That really has no bearing on an expansion team.

                              why that? i would rather play for a HOLE Country then a city, and this is Canada team.
