I think they will have to reassess their cities next year. Atlanta doesn't seem to care either.
They seem to want to be in warm weather or a dome. I feel like Columbus, Louisville, etc without alot of major pro sports would embrace it.
Well the XFL is occurring....
I'll throw out my new city of Tulsa/OKC for it.
Small market but you could probably get people to check it out if you loaded up the roster with people from Nebraska, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Tulsa, Arkansas and OU. Considering the fact I was mainly watching more Browns games than normal thanks to some certain former Sooner player? there's a market for it I think.
The venue would be the only problem.
-Only venue in OKC proper would probably be Bricktown (only seats 9K) or Taft (seats 13k)
-Norman is 25 minutes away but I'm unsure of the viability there. 84k capacity would look awfully empty if say, only 20k show up.
-Stillwater is out in the middle of nowhere.
-Skelly Stadium but Tulsa is the smaller fish compared to OKC.
Weather also isn't...awful when the AAF would be playing. Gets in the 30's-50's around this time.
