Orlando and Portland would be two, I would think. Orlando is a separate TV market from Tampa, and, as Tampa-St. Pete is the 13th largest TV market in the country and Orlando is the 19th, means there should be sufficient support there to support a team. Portland is a larger TV market than Indy, Baltimore, Charlotte and San Diego. Orlando has cash from some mouse operation; Portland is a growing city with tech money.
Not that I think they would, but Sacramento would also be larger than Indy, Baltimore, Charlotte and San Diego. But a third team in northern California would probably not fly.
What about Vegas?
Would the stadium have a sports book?
If it were me the Vikings Stadium HERE would have sports book - use that to fund the damned thing. That and legalized paramutual hookers.
