This also reinforces 98%-sure position that the Eagles would never, ever let this happen. They know that the league was gunning for Philadelphia.
If I were to lay money down today, I'd bet on a return matchup of Blackhawks/Red Wings in Ann Arbor.
And one year they're going to sell out to Jerry Jones
Well, Yankee stadium is absolutely on their radar... and we've heard about Citi field, too.
Moreover, the stadium is actually less important for the event than the TV draw... NBC doesn't get any of the gate receipt I'm assuming, and they just put $200M into the NHL's pocket.
