The Stadium is eons closer to the center of NYC in our case, than Buffalo is to the Orchard Park stadium.

In that vein, I'm trying to think if the Miami Marlins are the only franchise in the 4 major sports to start with a state name and switch to a city name (without moving)...

The NFL Cardinals did the opposite, started as the Phoenix Cardinals (after the move from St. Louis), then went to Arizona, while never playing any of their home games within the Phoenix city limits (originally played at Sun Devil Stadium on the ASU campus in Tempe, now play at the Univ. of Phoenix stadium in Glendale, where they are neighbors to the Phoenix Coyotes of the NHL. Only team named Phoenix that actually plays in Phoenix are the NBA Suns, who play in the America West Arena U-S Airways Center next door to the Bank One Ballpark Chase Field in downtown Phoenix.

Don't you just love mergers! :)

You are correct. Regardless, the New York has nothing to do with the State of NY and never did. It was always in reference to the City of New York.

For me Boston's closer, so it's all good. :)

They probably would on the roof. But yes, it would be greatly diminished. Plus the neighborhood will be better with commercial and residential buildings than with a barren stadium unused most days, and a forest of parking garages.

Fine, call them the NY Bills. Then they'll be in a division with the New Jersey Jets, Massachussetts Patriots and Florida Dolphins. Be sure not to confuse the Florida Dolphins with the Florida Buccaneers and the Florida Jaguars. Not to mention the Pennsylvania Eagles and Pennsylvania Steelers; Maryland Ravens and Maryland Redskins; Ohio Browns and Ohio Bengals; California Chargers, California 49ers and California Raiders; and finally and most entertainingly, Texas Cowboys and Texas Texans.

Right. If the first unambiguously state-named teams were from 1961, there's no way a team founded in 1925 named after a team founded in the 1880s could follow that rule. The 1960-founded New York Titans (1963 Jets) are almost certainly named similarly.

How could I forget the Missouri Rams and Missouri Chiefs?

LAAoA should have remained the California Angels, leaving the Philadelphia Phillies as the only stupidly repetitive team name.

Oh, I thought the Minnesota Vikings were named for the state, not a city.

You are correct, but the tax dollars do not go to the City of New York, or even New York State, where part of it (admittedly a longshot) might go to NYC rapid transit.

Yes, and the New York Giants and New York Jets were named for a city.

Not in our lifetime, if ever.
