32 teams would be dream scenario IMO for everyone

- More $$$ for Owners
- More jobs for players
- 2 new markets for excitement and expanding revenue of league
Unless those franchises don't work out and existing owners are spread even thinner with revenue sharing. We'll have to see how franchises do post lockout. If there are still 10-15 teams losing money every year, expansion makes no sense. It makes much more sense to move existing struggling franchises.
