The Pointless Realignment Outpost


Lee.

Recommended Posts

You're not making any sense.

The names are pointless, really.

Anyway, Kev, good work, but shouldn't Nashville move somewhere?

Really, the only teams that should/could be moved are Phoenix and Florida. Nashville has a pretty good following and they're doing much better financially than they were in 2007. Also, you have to remember to be patient with the Nashville's, Carolina's, etc., because it takes more than 10-15 years for a fanbase to start resembling the fanbases to the north (in size). You just can't start moving every "southern" team up north just because they didn't get 400 straight sell-outs out of the gate like Minnesota did. No, it takes time for these teams in non-traditional markets to grow, and you have to be patient. These southern markets are pretty vital for the future of the league and the growth of the game.

... So stop moving all of these teams around when you obviously have little knowledge about their markets and financial situations.

Nashville subsidizes the Predators with "arena management fees" almost as much as Glendale does. There's no access to their ratings because they're delivered on an FSN South subfeed on a system-to-system basis (same with the Hurricanes), but you have to believe they must be pretty crappy. The Hurricanes' profit/loss is immaterial because they're just a toy for some creepy software developer and a pretense for a pro-standard arena at NC State. There's no reason to be fooling around in these small southern towns. I don't blame a soul for wanting to be rid of them. They're useless to the grand scheme of things. You could have these two teams in Milwaukee and Hartford and "grow the game" just fine.

Here's my idea for the NBA:

move the Pelicans to Seattle (SuperSonics)

Expand to Louisville and Virginia Beach

Move the Clippers to the Honda Center

That's all that should happen.

Oh and for the NFL:

move the Raiders/Jags/Rams to L.A.

Don't expand at all for now.

If Raiders don't move to L.A., expect them to play in Levi's Stadium

Where is Los Vegas?

Uh, and that Hampton Roads/Virginia Beach arena is not really going anywhere outside of a colorful website.
