    Kind of. The amount of irritation that has to pile up for a team to move is enough that if the Sharks up and left for Quebec City, Kansas City, or Seattle (and it wasn't clearly a Phoenix level community failure), I'd probably either find a different NHL team or drop the sport on a pro level for a few years.

        Re: Your new Los Angeles Vikings

        An update from an ESPN blog:

        The state House of Representatives formally took up the bill at 3 p.m. ET, but debating the stadium bill has proved difficult given the volume of chants from fans just outside the chamber walls. Eventually, according to onlookers, House Speaker Kurt Zellers asked that the doors remained closed so the debate could be heard by all members.

        If you're following the play-by-play on Twitter or via the House's closed-circuit feed, you know that members approved an amendment that increased the Vikings' share in the $975 million project from $427 million to $532 million. It's doubtful the Vikings would go for that change, but it's important to note that amendments are always subject to negotiation when a final bill is drafted. It wouldn't be surprising to see the bill changed in other ways as well.

        In the end, however, the goal for stadium supporters is to continue to push the ball down the field. In the end, that would mean approval in some form from the House and moving on to the Senate. Again, the House could be hours and hours away from a final vote. Stay tuned.

              I liked the lady that basically wanted the NFL to violate their own existing TV contracts.

              You know, we should all spend a few hours a week watching our state/local/national politicians just so we're reminded about the absolutely idiotic things they say.

              Edit:
              @johnkriesel

              One of my colleagues just talked about the fact that the NFL was looking into having a cable network. News flash: they launched it in 2003.

                Given how much of Wylf's 'contribution' comes form stadium naming rights and the NFL, Wylf can gfh if he doesn't want to up the Vikings' ante.

                  F that. If they leave I'm becoming a Chiefs fan. Or some other bandwagon.

                              No, the stadiums that are 100% privately funded - including the $1B+ Dallas stadium and the stadium, coincidentally, that's being proposed in LA - have more money put into them by their owners.

                                Wouldn't the problem have been solved already if the cheapskate had just said Fu-- it and built a new stadium himself?
