[quote]Agree with tapping into Latin America market, but San Juan is about the only place to put a team right now unless they think Santo Domingo can support a team. Mexico City is too dangerous with the drug cartels ruling that country right now. So is any other city in Mexico. Anywhere south of Me...

The Expos played 43 games in San Juan in those final seasons, drawing over 730,000 fans. That is roughly 17,000 a game. The stadium seating capacity at Hiram Bithorn is 18,000. So they sold out every game. Just sayin...

Why on earth do people keep calling for Canadien cities? We already have enough cold weather cities..i dont care if they do have a dome. Like i said, if MLB is interested in relocation or expansion, they should be looking to a city like San Juan, Puerto Rico. 2.4 Million metro, but 4 million on th...

IF Tampa Bay were to relocate, they should consider San Juan, Puerto Rico (2.4 Million). You want to talk about baseball fanatics. Puerto Rico has some of the best talent in the world. Im sure they could field their own MLB team of Puerto Ricans. They would sell out every game. Baseball is KING ...

No question about it. I think the real question becomes, is it going to be four 16 team Superconferences or five? Conference realig...

I think UConn should be on the B1G's radar. The ACC would have to add somebody else too if they added UConn right, because with Notre Dame, it would give them an odd number?...

People who think conference realignment was done are in denial. There are still P5 worthy schools in non P5 conferences and quite frankly, there is still money to be made. UConn and Cincinnati are never going to sit by and let their programs become irrelevant in non P5 conferences. ...

Youngstown St is about to get back to dominating the FCS like they did when Tressel was the head coach. They won what...5 National Titles in the 90's? I know Ohio U, Akron, Kent St and Mount Union probably dont like this.
Could moves like this lead to Youngstown St joining the MAC? ...

I have zero problem with this interview or his stance in this particular case, i just think he should have addressed it just as he did in the speech, using his voice as a platform. So the problem i have is, with all the anger and flat out scary opposition to police right now, i think the T-shirt com...

As an Iraq War Veteran of the Army's 1st Cavalry Division, this game means as much to me as "The Game" between Ohio State and Michigan....probably even more. I went to the 06' game of #1 vs #2.

Im really starting to like the East/West alignment with Colorado St and Cincinnati. This scenario also lets you set up for future expansion of Memphis and BYU should they feel the need to expand again.

Yea you know the Big 12 wants the Denver market back. Colorado St would give them a presence there again. Remember, expansion is also about expanding your footprint in large markets, Denver/Ft Collins certainly brings that....
