    The league has passed the relocation proposal of the New Orleans Saints. Now it is time for them to approve one of the bids from the three bidding cities. San Antonio, Memphis, and Orlando.

    Note: As you can probably tell, these were not the only jersey styles for each team. I chose the style that i would be selecting if i were to select that team.

    A quick write-up as to the dynamic of what each city brings to the TMFL.

    San Antonio
    In Texas football is life. The state has 3 teams in Texas already with 2 of them being in the city of Houston. The city of San Antonio has also stepped up time and time again for the city of New Orleans when natural disaster has struck the city. New Orleans residents would naturally gravitate towards the re-branded Saints having an emotional tie to the city of San Antonio already.

    Orlando
    Florida is pining for a new pro football franchise after seeing the Jaguars pack up and head for Houston. Orlando only carries one team in the big 3 of pro sports organizations in the Orlando Magic. Orlando is an immediate in-state rival with their division mate Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The I-4 rivalry as city lobbyists are already billing it.

    Memphis
    A city that showed its passion for sports when tornado watches/warnings were throughout the city and they still packed the FedEx Forum to see their Grizzlies in an NBA playoff games earlier this decade. Memphis would be the western-most location of any NFC South team, but would stay below Charlotte as the northern-most location. Only by a nose.

    San Antonio is the best move here imo. Express would def be the team name/colors I would pick. They look sick.

    I like both Memphis and Orlando. Another Texas squad would give them 4 squads. Even OKC would be dope!

    It's not the fanciest, but for some reason I like the unis for the Memphis Hounds

    Tapaptalk doesn't often reflect polls. Have to go to the site.

    I want to change my vote to Orlando. Looks like SA isn't gonna happen and I'm opposed to all of those Memphis unis :)

    I'll ask the voters on the lowest side of things to change votes if there is a tie at the top.
