The NFL needs to make a team work in Phoenix, its a huge TV market and the NFL cannot afford to lose another huge TV market.
NHL lost Atlanta, a big market, and it had no impact on their TV contract. I didnt hear NBC trying to get out of the deal because of it.
Would love to see what the TV numbers are in markets like Tampa and Dallas for NBC games which never feature their teams.
NBC cares about only 7-10 franchises in the US. Those are the markets that generally drive the TV numbers they draw.
