They'd have to be willing to take a major financial risk and profit only from tickets, local TV contracts, and team paraphernalia.

Steve Ballmer just spent 400mil to acquire the Forum and apparently not tear it down. I'm just wondering what is going on is SEA/Wash where a guy like Ballmer just says f you and spend ridiculous $$$ in another state. I hear what you're saying about $$$ being in limbo for a couple years but by that time a SEA team might be relatively good. so, in essence its worth the investment. you save money by staying in that wackass renovated key arena or "new seattle center". Chris Hansen would probably have been glad to do what you said but he did what he did. ironically, I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up part owner of a Vegas franchise.
which is to my point.....tix, local tv contacts and franchising would coast in SEA, Vegas and Mex City
