The issue with the South---as in----the area of Arkansas/Louisiana over to Caolinas excluding FLA and TX. You have many smaller cities that are strong college sports markets.

Atlanta, Nashville, Charlotte, and Raleigh are loaded with northern transplants. Same true with TX and FL.

These markets are loaded with Canadian and Northern US transplants and retirees. They are also loaded with $$$$

So they are hanging on tooth and nail to Arizona. Even if you aint a Yotes fan, lots of people show up to cheer for the Canucks, Red wings, Leafs , etc..........
