Also, I seem to recall that the Falcons had to approve the Hartford franchise.

I don't have links to confirm either situation - the first was too long ago, and for the second, I'm too lazy.
Didn't Providence have to approve Worcester since the two cities are within 50 miles of each other?

Worcester had to of also approve of Lowell too since they're within 50 miles.
Lowell had to of approve of Manchester since they were also within 50 miles.

So from 1992 when Providence came into existance:
1994 - Providence approves of Worcester
1994 - Worcester approves of Springfield
1997 - Springfield approves of Hartford
1998 - Worcester approves of Lowell
2001 - Hartford approves of Bridgeport
2002 - Lowell approves of Manchester
2006 - Springfield, Providence, and Lowell approves of Worcester

I think that's all of it.
