Intersting theory based on the premis that population growth will continue as per the last 100 or so years. Also, what is lost in this theory is that a team's fan base will shift from one team to another, that is, no loyalty to the old teams, just fandom based on where the population centers are. I really don't think this will work in every instance, that is, 3 teams in the Carolina's does not mean the Panther's fan base will up and start watching another Carolina team. Also, too many teams cramed into a smaller area will be self defeating for all the teams in that geographical area, regardless of population density. LA, CA is the perfect example of this. Why does LA NOT have an NFL team even though it has a big population?--oh yah, no one in LA really cares, that's why.
