Just thinking out loud about expansion...
It's not very clever of me to think I know better than executives at a company that basically just prints money for itself. Somebody knows something there.
OTOH, they kept kicking the concussion thing farther down the road, when anyone who had their data and looked around at American society could guess that they weren't going to easily fix this, easily outrun this, or easily keep it secret. Perhaps it's something like the housing and mortgage bubbles - the big fish all think they are going to cash out in time.
Plus, come to think of it, they still haven't figured out how they are going to navigate suspensions for on-field versus off-field behavior. And don't get me started on the Ideal Gas Law.
Still, they are making all that money. So when they say they want to put a team in London to break into the international market, maybe they are onto something despite it being a logistical mess. I can see why they don't like the impression, the "optics" as we say now, that a team in Las Vegas would present, but really, most fans won't care in the least. Los Angeles now has a team again, but it could probably carry two. Texas is crazy and could support at least one more team.
My thought is...Mexico City is better than all those choices. Time zone travel is a lot better, it has 20 million people, with way more Americans than any other foreign city, plus an upper class of its own that will sign on. In fact, you put in two teams, one marketed to the working stiff and one to social climbers, which I believe is standard practice throughout Latin America and pays off handsomely. Actually, that works many places in the world, including New York and San Fran/Oakland.
As for London, don't you pair that with another European city to bring it on line - someplace in Germany where there are lots of American servicemen and businessmen? Less jet lag, natural rivalry. Just adding a team in London seems a bit nuts.
