Nice list. I’ll have to listen to the podcast and hear why it’s topped by Omaha. :)

Seems like he likes the support for Omaha and is rewarding them for it. Here is a tweet from last week re #1 Omaha:

They also played some voice mail from Portland and Tacoma. It would be great if other cities/areas would do the same.

Go to about 1:08:00 for the messages and rankings. https://soundcloud.com/user-870465142/e ... #t=1:08:00

I’ve got nothing against Omaha. I am thinking that some people might be partial to that location, and they think by keeping on saying it is high on the location list the XFL might take notice. Might be a recipe for disappointment.

No team outside of the top 50 tv markets, which you can google, will get a team. Places like Omaha may sound nice, but just do not have the people needed. I think Texas will get a team. likely between San Antonio or Austin.
Rank Metropolitan Market Regions / Areas. they will need to disperse themselves regionally and have a facility that suits their playing needs. i strongly thing the markets bolded are the most likely.
1 New York - either here or Hartford is a lock. there will be a team in the northeast.
2 Los Angeles
3 Chicago
4 Philadelphia
5 Dallas-Ft. Worth
6 San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose - lock they did very well here before. and with a better product and facilities available they will almost certainly be back.
7 Boston
8 Atlanta
9 Washington, DC - a bit saturated, but has an available stadium of proper size in a growing area.
10 Houston
11 Detroit
12 Phoenix
13 Tampa-St. Petersburg
14 Seattle-Tacoma
15 Minneapolis-St. Paul
16 Miami-Ft.Lauderdale
17 Cleveland-Akron
18 Denver
19 Orlando-Daytona Beach-Melbourne - top 20 area without a team other than basektball. should be a dunk, plus region needs at least 1 team
20 Sacramento-Stockton-Modesto
21 St. Louis- i am just dubious as the stadium is really too big for what they will draw and teams leave for a reason
22 Portland, OR - love this area. growing, people are passionate. i am not sure if they have a facility that fits the need. the Timbers play in a stadium half the size of what Vince will want.
23 Pittsburgh
24 Charlotte, NC
25 Indianapolis
26 Baltimore
27 Raleigh-Durham
28 San Diego - can and deserves a look. may be a numbers game with norther CA likely to have a team to start.
29 Nashville
30 Hartford-New Haven-either here or NY unless they shaft Ohio
31 Kansas City
32 Columbus, OH- deserves a team and has a facility. though i think OSU is more likely than where Crew play due to size.
33 Salt Lake City - love this location too, limited other teams and i think the conservative area will buy into this product. they also have a nice stadium here.
34 Cincinnati
35 Milwaukee - if they can use the indoor stadium it is worth a look.
36 Greenville-Spartanburg-Asheville-Anderson
37 San Antonio
38 West Palm Beach-Ft. Pierce
39 Grand Rapids-Kalamazoo-Battle Creek
40 Birmingham - were here before. not sure if they will come back to start with another city in region being larger and a likely lock. may need to wait for expansion
41 Harrisburg-Lancaster-Lebanon-York
42 Las Vegas
43 Norfolk-Portsmouth-Newport News
44 Albuquerque-Santa Fe
45 Oklahoma City - have the facility and the desire for a team.
46 Greensboro-High Point-Winston-Salem
47 Jacksonville, FL
48 Memphis
49 Austin - if no in San Antonio.
50 Louisville
