The actual city or suburb doesn't matter. really.
Which I always that was really lame (sorry LA of Anaheim).
I imagine the city could fight in a court of law against the use of it's name for a team it doesn't sanction out of spite towards the NFL. Doesn't mean it would win, but it doesn't mean it wouldn't. At least it would let the world know where it stands on the issue.
Look. The city has somehow survived, what, 14 years without the NFL? They need the city more than the city needs them, the way I see it. Sure, it would be nice to get a team, properly utilize a grand public structure and
have that part of town revitalized as a side effect. That's the goal of the city, and a damn fine one. The city could benefit immensely and the franchise at the Coliseum would likely do better than one in the boonies. But if the NFL just ain't havin' it, F*** 'em - banished to the boonies they are. But I, for one, am not holding my breath for that stadium to be built.
