    I still think Goodell's primary goal is getting a team back in Los Angeles. It won't be so easy to pry the Bills out of Western NY either. As bad as that economy is in that part of the country the psychological effects would be huge.

    Didn't realize Tim Leiweke had become CEO of MLSE.

    Goodell's primary goal is NOT getting a team back in Los Angeles. Goodell's primary goal is getting the most value for his league. Keeping Los Angeles out there drives up the price for potential movers. Once L.A. is taken, the golden goose is dead.

    London and Toronto remain open for business. Those are the silver and bronze gooses, respectively.

    Reports say they're halfway there.
    Once Ralph Wilson dies, it will be extremely easy.

    Buffalo deserves a hell of a lot more than Goodell has given it.

    He seems intent on allowing the NYG-NYJ to swallow up the northern NY market.

    Some of the NFL's best fans are in Buffalo.

    What is Goodell supposed to do? Give Buffalo a QB?

    I think the final bullet will be a team in Los Angeles and soon. LA served its purpose for 19 years - to be the threat to force city after city to pony up for stadium renovations. Once Minnesota finally gets its stadium, nearly everyone will be taken care of.

    Everything you read seems to indicate that Goodell won't go beyond 32 teams. I'll be really curious who winds up in LA. It should be the Jaguars, but it almost certainly won't be the Jaguars.

    I wonder if Toronto and Buffalo would split home games initially. It would suck to see the Bills leave.

    Is it safe to say football in Buffalo is Livin' on a Prayer?

    I suspect it'll be the Rams in Los Angeles. Where they should be.
