If an NFL city loses a team due to lack of support, they shouldn't ever be allowed to have a team in that sport again I.M.H.O.

Perhaps...

 

But the corollary to that would be...  IF the NFL puts a team in a city and that team consistently underperforms, then the NFL should never be allowed to put a team anywhere again.

 

A lot of these teams that want to move because the people "aren't supporting them" boils down to teams wanting tax dollars to pay for a new stadium for them, people still have to pay for tickets even after paying the cost of building the stadium, and the prices for those tickets going up and up year after year... meanwhile, the team paying millions of dollars to players who are not successful on the field year after year.

 

If a restaurant fails, do you never build another restaurant?  More specific, if a McDonald's fails would you never build another McDonald's?  Or perhaps would a better owner come around and hire better employees and do a better job and succeed with his McDonald's where the previous owner failed?

I know your not. Talking about Los Angeles. We didn't lose our
Teams For lack of support. We lost them because we wouldn't throw millions of taxpayer Dollars at them. That should be illegal everywhere!!!
