    A small market team that has to compete for fans with the Atlanta Falcons, Tampa Bay Bucs, and the legendary Miami Dolphins.

    They should realistically be playing in San Antonio or Los Angeles.

      The stadium is too big.  It seats more than 75,000 (above 80,000 for college).  They covered seats to make it smaller last year (under 68,000 I believe.)  It's that size to keep Florida-Georgia football.  The state of Florida has been hit extremely hard by the housing crisis.  Miami doesn't sell out games and Tampa Bay even has openings for the first time in years.  San Antonio ain't getting a team.  That was made clear when the NFL said to Benson you are not leaving New Orleans.  And, if Los Angeles was going to get a team it would've happened by now.  Who is going to build a stadium in LA?  No gov't is going to do it.
