And because cities are centrally located they can generally cater to more people than playing in the suburbs.

NFL doesnt care, one game a week.
fwiw I was able to get two tickets on stub hub for Bulls-Nets game 7 (A saturday night) at about $90 all in each. The Nets standing in the world improved in Brooklyn, but I would wait a good 5 years before calling it a success. Demand for for an Isles game 7 at the coliseum would dwarf the demand the Nets had in Brooklyn.
