In a recent article, I had come to the conclusion that the threat of a team moving was a dying reality for NFL owners. Most every major metropolitan area that wanted a team had one except Los Angeles. In my hypothesis, the economic climate had so changed from the 1990's that public funding of stadiums was no longer possible, and only private funding was an option. In my delusion, any owner with no option to move and who subsequently loses their local support becomes at risk of losing their investment. Some NFL franchises could go at fire sale rates or even collapse under the continually rising player cost structure.
