To comment about the above pole, I think a team would do good in Abilene. For one there is Nothing out in west Texas, as far as pro sports. Not even in New Mexico. Geographicaly it would be good, The population would be equivalant to let say Green Bay,not to mention the surrounding area which would include Midland, Odessa, El Paso, even New Mexico, your talking about Millions of people. It has its own Regional Air Port, and it is on Interstate 20 a major highway. The colleges and High Schools are supported very well there because there is nothing else to do.
