Top 10 Sports Teams that Most Need Relocation
The Top Ten
Here is how it went. Atlanta flames moved to calgary good. Winnipeg mooved to phoenix bad. Thrashers moved to winnipeg becoming winnipeg jets 2.0 and in 2014 Bettman changed Phoenix coyoties into arizona coyoties. Like at least let them keep the name phoenix because I don't know it just sounds better being phoenix. But no. Also the nhl was great before the stupid golden knights came along. I mean he won't give a team to hamilton. that's where your fans are Gary. Hockey has strong roots in canada but now he is giving las vegas nhl team? The only thing good about him is that he made it very easy for the next guy that has his job. Gary Bettman as comissioner is like Wayne Gretzky being president of the united states.
There really isn't any way for Phoenix to get any more fans. Hockey won't work there. At least in South Florida there's a possibility, even though it's small, that hockey could work. There's just nothing like that in Arizona.
As john Oliver puts it, they are spending millions of dollars in taxpayer money to keep a giant slab of ice in Arizona.
Gila River Arena has one of the WORST attendances in the league. The franchise loses $10M a year! A relocation to Las Vegas would be great!
They have terrible attendance. Their stadium is an embarrassment to the sport of baseball. A move from St. Petersburg to Tampa or Montreal would be good.
Channelside, Tampa. Even drew them a ballpark.
2nd worst attendance last year even with a good team. I agree with most that they should move to Montreal.
There are already 3 other teams in California. NBA Champions Warriors, world-popular Lakers, and playoff contending Clippers. However, the Kings have been a mess for years and won't come close to winning another NBA title. A move to Seattle would make WAY more sense.
Go back to Kansas City
Orchard Park isn't a good spot for the Bills and they don't get much attendance. The Jets and Giants have WAY more attendance than the Bills. Toronto would be a great place for them.
I think it's less a matter of "if" and more a matter of "when". Toronto is going to get them and I think that is pretty much common knowledge.
The attendance is horrible! Jordan didn't do anything but change the name of the team. Nobody wants to watch a team who won't go anywhere. So move them to Buffalo or Tampa.
The Panthers have the worst attendance in the league and have only made the playoffs 5 times in their franchise history. Their state rivals, Tampa Bay Lightning, have great attendance and way more playoff appearances. And who watches hockey in Sunrise? A move to Quebec City would be a good choice.
I agree completely. Quebec City deserves a team. They actually want one.
How are they not in the top 5?
First off, Grizzles is a horrible name for a state without any grizzly bears. They have trouble bringing in fans and lose a lot every year. A move to Vancouver would be perfect.
Leaving Vancouver was a big mistake. Go back to Canada where there’s actual grizzlies.
Not sure about this one. New York City can support multiple teams for basically every sport and there are enough hockey fans there. I was in NYC in 2014 and I was pleased with how much the city loves hockey.
The Islanders are not as popular as their city rivals, the Rangers. The move to Brooklyn did nothing for them. Just move them somewhere close.
The Chargers moved to LA as the "second fiddle" team to the Rams, who also moved to LA a year prior. The Rams' move to LA was a success, making it to the Super Bowl in their 3rd season, and are getting a sexy new stadium in a couple seasons, as for the Chargers, they have no business in LA. Last season, they were last place in attendance, this is especially bad when you realize that they play in a soccer stadium, and even when they get people in attendance, they are almost always opposing fans. The Chargers should move to Orange County, where they can attract both LA and San Diego, or just move back to San Diego, as LA can only support one NFL team. To be honest, LA should have gotten the Raiders instead of the Chargers...
They'll be getting a new stadium in 2020.
They should move to Orlando.
Their attendance was worse than the Coyotes from 2014-17.
Move back to Hartford you dummies!
Though Anthony Davis increased attendance there, they still can't make enough money. Yet, they aren't appreciated enough. Move them to Las Vegas
A close move like San Jose would make sense. Or maybe Montreal.
The name clippers doesn’t make sense cause you could only see clipper boat in san diego
come back to seattle!
Complete garbage since 2006 and have taken 4-5 FIRST OVERALL picks and traded 2 OF them for nonthing! It's surprising how teams like the coyotes, a team that shouldn't be in Arizona has made the playoffs more than Edmonton in 10 years!
This team has been at the bottom of the league since they returned to the NFL.
The name lakers doesn’t make sense
New York has too much sports teams they have 2 nba teams and they have 2 mlb teams and 2 nhl teams and they all ready have New York giants.
Why does New York need 2 mlb teams? They all ready have the successful New York Yankees 27 World Series which they won and the Mets 2 World Series In 1969 And 1989
This team is a joke.
