Jacksonville alone has a crazy blackout percentage. Any one with half a brain will tell you that franchise needs moved before it eventually dies there.

I'd trust your info there though, the Rams are a team that could move for sure. I just think they get their new stadium before they have it signed, sealed, and delivered that they are moving.

Yep Florida is a fukin stinkhole when it comes to fans, better yet its a joke. The Jax owner has a no move clause.

I'm pretty sure the powers that be in Cali wanted Bradford before Gabbert.

As goofy as it would be, I could see that scenario happening. The Rams have a much better shot at moving to LA in the very near future, but the St. Louis market is too good to pass up. Jacksonville I think will be a more difficult move, but that organization and lack of any real fan base makes it a prime team to try and get. As someone else said, Tampa and Miami aren't in solid shape either, but both have stronger ties to the state than the Jaguars. But in general, Florida is horrible for any sport besides Florida St, the Hurricanes and the Gators.

Where do you get two teams? LA has already had the Rams, the Raiders (2X?) and haven't been able to support those.

Obviously, a market like LA should be able to support 2 teams, but it just doesn't seem like they actually will...

Would you blame them? I just don't know how Jacksonville got a team in the first place...

LA's current plan is to have one team for 5-10 years, but they would like to add a second team too. Not sure if they would share the same field or not, from what I've seen they would be building their own stadium. It's also not out of the question the Raiders just do a LA Angels type deal too.

LA's problem is the same for Atlanta too many people that have been loyal to another franchise for decades beforehand. Was foolish of them to ever let either team go.

Missouri is facing a budget shortfall of between $600M and a billion dollars. I think the last thing the state, or city of St Louis, should be concerned with is upgrading a stadium for a team owned by a guy worth over $4 billion.

Just saying...
