Of the big four, here are the last teams to relocate:
NBA: Sonics franchise moves to Oklahoma City to become the Thunder
NFL: The Oilers franchise moves from Houston to Tennessee and become the Titans in two years
NHL: Whalers franchise moves to Raleigh to become the Carolina Hurricanes
MLB: Expos franchise moves from Montreal to Washington DC to become the Nationals
What's the first team that comes to mind when you think of a re-location, and what city do you think that team is going to move to?
I think the Kings can and should move somewhere, just not LA.
SD would be nice but they dont give a crap about any sport thats not football.
CHA and NOH are done for basketball.
both cant draw attendance and should be contracted. I dont understand why the Hornets would move from Charlotte just to give them another team. Might as well put someone back in Vancouver and Seattle. NBA people are such idiots.
Originally posted by StOnEy333: The Jacksonville Jaguars are moving to LA.
Makes too much sense. First, they aren't making any money in Jacksonville with the lack of attendance and blackouts (no TV ratings). Second, with homegrown CA talent in MJD (and even Lewis), they'd automatically get some great numbers out the get-go. Finally, if they move to that big market, more players would be willing to play there, improving their talent.
If they do go, most likely will move to NFC West (due to lack of current rivalries in the NFC West) and move StL to the AFC South. As much as I would hate not having the Rams, I'd love to have another LA team to hate
