How long could they even go with 29 teams before expanding again?

Furthermore, if they wanted to contract to make more $$$ out of an immediate expansion, they could have taken over the Thrashers and sell them to TSNE for more than $170 mil.

In reality, if the Yotes can't remain in AZ after this season, they will move....contraction is a non starter IMO.
Doubt it, TNSE had a deal for 110 for the Thrashers. That's all they were worth nobody bid more. Sort of opens our eyes to what they really were worth. The league stepped in supposedly saying you were going to pay 170 for the Yotes, you'll pay 170 for the Thrashers. I don't see how the league could have got more.
