Seattle has the Seahawks and the Mariners. An NBA team already failed because it is not sports-crazed enough to support three teams. If the Sonics couldn't make it, I don't see the Coyotes working.

Portland, on the other hand, just has an NBA team. Those two sports tend to attract very different fan bases, so it could easily work. Portland already has a minor league team and a rink, so it makes sense to me.

Bizarre note of the day: If this happens, the AHL affiliate of the Portland team would be in Portland...Maine.
