To Euro Bob: In the unlikely event the Steelers moved out of Pittsburgh I think the franchise would have a new identity like the Ravens, and the city of Pittsburgh would be promised an expansion team with the Steelers name, logo and history (much like Cleveland in the 1990s).
I think that is probably right.

Where do you think the Raiders would play? I suppose in the short term they would need to use the Rose Bowl or the Coliseum. After that, are either of those 2 stadium designs even viable (the Farmers Field one and the Grand Crossing one)? I was under the impression that both groups proposing those stadiums wanted a stake in the team that plays there. What kind of stake I don't know, but is that even up for discussion with the Raiders?
