So argue two WP economic writers. Their basic point is that the NFL could relocate some of its teams and create a stronger revenue stream and global brand presence for the league.
The recent move of the Rams from St. Louis to Los Angeles underscores the basic idea: some very large US markets are not being served. So the article suggests that San Diego Chargers head to Orange County, the Buffalo Bills move to Brooklyn, the Cincinnati Bengals move to Vegas and the New Orleans Saints move to Austin-San Antonio.
But wait, there's more. Why not move franchises to Jacksonville to London, Detroit to Toronto and Cleveland to Mexico City to create a true global presence? Better do it quick before Clinton or Trump imposes a relocation tax!
My only pushback is whether relocation makes more sense than expansion. And why not have games on Tuesday and Wednesday night?
