If you could prevent ANY relocation in sports history from happening, which one would you prevent?

Oilers? Nah. Houston has the Texans.

Sonics? After the way Seattle's potential ownership group acted with the Kings fiasco? Nope.

 

So it would be between the Expos and Whalers. Both of which I would love to see back, but probably shouldn't return.

Although I'd love to see the Sonics come back, the keychain hanging on the wall behind me has me biased toward bringing back the Whalers.

 

I think it's safe to say Seattle will get an NBA expansion at some point, though.

Love the Houston Oilers. Especially since Nashville has lost interest in the Titans over the past few years, I'd bring back the Oilers. Honestly, when I'm thinking of the 32 NFL teams, I always forget Tennessee and Jacksonville. That's the AFC South for you I guess.

At least the SuperSonics relocated to a market that can support a team. To be fair, Nashville did well the first 10 years the team was there, but lately the interest has plummeted. The team sucks, yes, but does that justify Nashville having a team over, say, Portland? I'd say no.

You have four buttons in front of you. One brings back the Oilers

 

I realize they've been terrible for a solid decade now but damn.

I was REALLY confused when I saw my favourite team there and then I realized it's a football team. And yeah, great post.

If you don't mind me asking, where do you get this info from?

 

I spend a good amount of time in the state of Tennessee.  (Just got back from there yesterday.)  Nashville is a Titans town first, and by far.  Nashville, Chattanooga, Knoxville, the mountains...there's a lot of Titans apparel being worn by the locals and more Titans stuff decorating restaurants and bars than any other pro team.and UT.  Driving up last Friday, Titans talk was dominating the sports radio dial.  Now there's probably some fan apathy from all the losing the last few years as far as filling the stadium goes (although I've never really heard much about the Titans having home games blacked out in Nashville), but I'm pretty confident in saying that Nashville nor the state has not lost interest in the Titans.

Sonics - of those four options they're the biggest robbery job. Never should've moved to begin with and this run the Durant/Westbrook Thunder have had has been good for Oklahoma City, but it would've been epic if it happened in Seattle.
