Where would you expand

Post by Scottmoney » Sun Jun 05, 2016 10:11 am

I would like to know if you were Scott butera, the commissioner of the afl, I have a question for you. Where would you expand and what's the nickname of each team.

You're really obsessed with team names, aren't you?
Old enough to remember when bashing the ABA was fun.

The operations that have run this league demonstrated a couple obvious principles.

The group of markets where this concept took off were either non-major markets (non-NFL) or historically poor NFL markets. When they went big-time, they got TV money for a while, but the league eventually croaked from the aftermath of that strategy.

So my conundrum: do you burn bright but fast with large markets, or slow and try to gain a foothold in smaller cities? Or do both ideas lead to the same grave?

Wherever I could find good ownership with half a clue of how to run a franchise.

Apply to membership in the IFL where you have at least a fair to middling chance to succeed financially. Certainly, it won't occcur in the AFL which is on life support. Ha ha ha DC? What is Leonsis thinking? More money than brains, for sure.
