Legal precedent says otherwise.
Its happened in the NFL. If there wasn't precedent (ie - no leg to stand on in a court of law) he wouldn't be buying the team.
If you're comparing the Al Davis\Raiders situation to this one, it's apples and oranges, and you're not familiar with that case...and furthermore, it SET the precedent in a way that no league would ever allow even a loophole that would permit it again. I know you're hopeful of having a team near you, but you're reaching at this point. I made the point that Balsillie can't FORCE the league to re-align and schedule games against his newly located(by brute force and illegal\immoral tactics) franchise.
