I can only speculate on the fan base from Portland. I suspect there are numerous fans who drive north on Interstate 5 for approx. three hours to attend a Seahawks game. Also, the Seahawks games air on several radio stations in Oregon (among other states and BC).

In the highly unlikely event that Portland ends up with an NFL team, I would guess a new Seattle/Portland rivalry would form.

(From personal experience, there a very strong Buffalo Bills fan base from where I lived in Rochester, NY and east of where I lived in Syracuse. So out-of-town fan bases within a 2-3 hour drive from a professional team's venue is not unusual.)
