    Raymond James Stadium isn't cutting it anymore. Tampa Bay Rays want to leave and now the Tampa Bay Bucs will be contacting league officials about submitting paperwork to move. With a terrible stadium rating and ownership and the city at ends, the Bucs would like to move on from Tampa Bay. We would need a 2/3 league vote to do so.

    Here are our options

    San Antonio

    We stay in the South region and move into a huge football state and decent market.

    Memphis

    Its a small market but it fits our team...very laid back. We love the Steamers uniform possibilities. Memphis would keep us still in our region.

    [​IMG]

    Austin

    Again, the move to Texas makes sense as the state is football crazy.

    [​IMG]

    Mexico City

    The other option would be sending this team south of the border, where the Mexican people love their futbol. Could they love football too? This could be interesting.

    You control the destiny of the Bucs in your hands. Help us make this dream a reality and get us out of dreadful Tampa Bay.

    Thank you.

    How would this work in a sim season? Would we be stopping at the weeks you need to pick all the particular stuff?

    Yeah I would make myself available when you sim it so that it only adds on like 2 - 3 mins extra. Stop at week 5, 8 and 11 so i can just pick real quick. I already, if approved know what i would want to do with my team, uniforms and stadium.

    I'm not sure if I like any of these locations for the NFC South, tbh. The only that makes sense to me is Memphis.

    Is Tampa really that awful?

    Tampa is terrible. We allowed a Jacksonville team to relocate to London for the AFC South. Not sure how they wouldn't make sense. What division would you put a team from Texas? Or a team from Mexico City? NFC North, South, East or West? akutozo

    I don't really like Texas because we already have 2 teams there, and I dislike Mexico City for the league in general.

    Memphis would be south to me though.

    We just voted St. Louis to move to LA and they already have San Diego, San Francisco, and Oakland. Moving them to LA makes 4 teams in California. Thanks for voting.

    I've been to Raymond James. I was driving through from Tampa to Cocoa Beach, and wanted to stop and watch NFL on a Sunday. I pulled off the freeway and saw the stadium, and programmed the gps for the nearest "sports bar." It sent me to http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/12884/ "Tanks Tap Room."

    Tanks was about 6 miles from the stadium, but it was a great choice. Why? IT WAS A STEELERS BAR.

    That alone should be justification to move. If there was another NFL teams' bar withing 6 miles of Heinz Field, it would be burned down by the yinzers.

    During the sim Season, it would require the sim to be stopped on each of the Owner choices so you could choose city, team name, uniform, and stadium. Given how we have simmed in the past, I'll gladly approve this to begin next user season.

    I actually like the Bucs tradition and uniforms, but I get that Tampa is a shit market.

    I voted Austin, in TX football is king, there should be 8-10 teams in TX

    I voted for Austin but I could see the team in Memphis or San Antonio also. Put my vote wherever Coachmedicis wants it

    I ask everyone to take a second and vote yes to relocating the Bucs - as it looks like now, to Memphis. Our stadium is downright crap, our market isn't interested in the product, despite the success last season. The Rays are trying to get out of Tampa Bay as well. This just isn't a professional sports city. I'm sorry but it's the truth. Please help us move, into a new city which makes more since within our division (Atlanta, Carolina, New Orleans - and Memphis - makes sense as well).

    We may also want commish team to weigh in if you get more than 8 nos, as previously that denied the move completely and currently there is no set rule. hskr8128 Freakskull RaiderRed90

    San Antonio and Austin make the most sense, honestly. Texas already has two teams, yes, but they are two of the most valuable franchises in the league. People in Texas love football at literally all levels, so another team in the state seems completely realistic. Memphis seems like an unlikely candidate to receive a team, given the fact that Tennessee can barely support the Titans as it is.

    I would LOVE to be in Austin but i'm not getting the support there McStrauss . So since most are picking Memphis (mostly due to the cool uniforms) i gotta try my best to go with what people want. Like I said, I think Austin would be a great landing spot for this franchise but I dont think i have the support of the league to do so.

    Oh I get you. Was writing that post mainly directed at everyone voting rather than at you. I just think voters should think harder about the move and where a team would go in real life. I think it's likely we will see another team in Texas within the next 20 or so years. There's just too much money to be gained not to. Tennessee not so much.
