Webmaster's note: Since the "stabilizing" merger, the following teams have moved, from a few miles, to hundreds of miles and across several states: Giants, Jets, Bills, Colts, Raiders (twice), Cardinals, Rams, Browns, Oilers (twice) and Patriots.  Those teams moved to new stadiums built to attract them, paid for by billions of dollars in public funds, except for the Patriots' new stadium.  In addition, citizens of the following areas have had to ante up more billions to build new stadiums to keep or regain franchises: Kansas City, St. Louis, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Minnesota, Houston, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and Washington.
