I'm a fan of markets like Tampa or LA growing in popularity for the good of the game. A cup in Vancouver would be great for Vancouver but they don't need it to increase viewership - the market is plenty saturated as is. If they're the greatest team that league, awesome they deserve it.

More or less a ramble but it's the people that say it without any ideas of why are the reasons I find it annoying.
