Private money talks. If the Yorks want to fully finance a new stadium, as SF Giants ownership did, they would also have no problem fast-tracking state-level approval of environmental impact, etc.
The builders of this stadium claim to be targeting 7 teams, and name the Niners, Raiders and Chargers, among those 7. In fact, none of these 3 teams would generate the incremental impact on jobs and economic activity, which is claimed. Those teams are already in California.
To secure the stated incremental economic impact, a team from out-of-state must be recruited. Look to the small market teams that are struggling with black-outs and/or a change of ownership. Here are 3 prime, more likely candidates, whom I would bet are also on the List of Seven:
Jacksonville - market is just too small, probably most likely candidate.
Carolina - owner is dying, estate sale coming?
Buffalo - aging owner and small market, already playing some in Toronto.
