Well, Hizzoner the Governor of New Mexico, Bill Richardson, thinks it's a grand idea and thinks that the state should cough up $500K to do a study to
see if this is really something to pursue with great vigor. They've hired a consultant to the study for them.
I ca see why they would want to pursue a team, though. It's prestige, it (should) bolster the local economy of the team's city. And, it may boost
tourism. But, it would ruin the small town atmosphere of the state...
There deffinitelly needs to be a team in VA. We have a decent sized population and many major cities. I know the Washington teams are supposed to be
like Virginia's teams but I would just like a team that is based in VA.
I dont' see the reason why. I have never understood why most people feel that you must be a fan of the team that is closest to where you live. I am
a fan of the teams I like because of thier style of play.
