The NFL entertains and brings people together on Sundays like no other sport. The league has considered many expansion efforts through the years http://www.raiderscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-isaiah-johnson-jersey , but the cost of building a suitable stadium is usually the biggest roadblock that stands in the way. Some cities might not have the funds and infrastructure necessary to support an NFL team, but still earn points for this list for being deserving of one.The following metropolitan areas make a strong case for hosting an NFL team. Many of them have healthy potential fan bases, television audiences, have very little competition to dilute the product and might even have experience with other professional sports franchises. Unfortunately, deserving and fan potential doesn’t necessarily equate to having the proper funding and facilities to accommodate an NFL team. Strong support is an essential ingredient to being able to overcome such shortcomings.The population counts of the metropolitan areas are based on figures from the 2010 U.S. Census, while television markets are from the September 1, 2013 Nielson Company estimates. Starting with the locations earning honorable mention, there is something each metropolitan area could bring to the NFL’s table.Honorable Mention:Honolulu – Football crazed Hawaiians would support an NFL team and fanatical football fans could lead a push to upgrade or replace aging Aloha Stadium. Even with support, other problems would be the unfavorable time zone and travel on east-west trips.London – The NFL would love to expand overseas and London has expressed interest. The travel and establishing a foothold in a foreign country are all major concerns. It would not be easy for west coast teams.Orlando – A big metropolitan area and TV audience await any prospective NFL team, but another NFL team in Florida is hard to imagine with Jacksonville struggling to fill seats. Orlando is not that far away from Jacksonville either.Milwaukee – The city of beer and the state of cheese could support another NFL team, but the state is home to the Packers who used to play a couple of home games each season in County Stadium. Would not be easy, but a worthy candidate.Las Vegas – Sin City would be the perfect place for an NFL team, but how that would mix with the Las Vegas betting action remains to be seen. The potential for corruption would be too much of a concern for the NFL. A pair of rookies helped the Giants get their weekend in Arizona off to a winning start.

Andrew Suarez pitched six strong innings, Austin Slater had a pair of RBI doubles and San Francisco beat the Diamondbacks 2-1 on Friday night.

Suarez (3-4), a 25-year-old left-hander, gave up a run Foster Moreau Jersey , scattering seven hits in his first win in five starts. The left-hander struck out five and walked two.

Five of the singles Suarez allowed were infield hits, including one that died halfway down the third-base line, an inch or two off the chalk.

”It was just weird,” Suarez said of the infield hit spree. ”I’ve never seen it like that. But it worked out thankfully. It could have been way worse and they’d have scored five or six runs.”

Suarez is among the young pitchers who are filling in well for the Giants while the veteran starters work their way back to health.

”We have difficult decisions the way these kids are throwing,” San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. ”As I said so many times, they’re doing what you’d hope they would do, is make the decision tough.”

Slater, recalled from Triple-A Sacramento four times this season – most recently last Saturday – doubled in a run off Patrick Corbin in the second and knocked in the go-ahead score off Andrew Chafin (1-3) in the seventh. Slater, who entered the game 4 for 15 in the majors this season, also singled.

He’s become accustomed to the back-and-forth trips to Sacramento.

”The first couple of times up and down it’s easy to lose focus,” Slater said, ”but for me, I see it as a way to try to prove a point, that I was here to stay.”

One of these trips, after a few more of these nights, he may be right.

Will Smith pitched a perfect ninth for his first save since April 13 http://www.raiderscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-hunter-renfrow-jersey , 2014. San Francisco relievers retired the last 12 batters they faced.

Chafin, relieving Corbin in a 1-1 tie, walked Brandon Crawford, who scored from first when Slater doubled to the right-center gap.

Corbin limited San Francisco to a run on four hits, striking out five and walking one in six innings, but left with his second straight no decision. In his previous outing, Corbin blanked Pittsburgh on three hits for seven innings and matched his career strikeout best with 12. Corbin last won on June 5 at San Francisco.

”Patrick was great today,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. ”He did everything we asked him to do. Would have sent him back out there in the seventh inning to get couple of hitters but we decided to pinch-hit for him. Unfortunately, one of the hazards of the National League game, but he did a great job and gave us a chance to win the game.”

The NL West-leading Diamondbacks opened a 10-game homestand after an 8-2 trip.

The Giants took a 1-0 lead in the second. Buster Posey led off with a single and took second when Chris Owings bobbled the ball in center. Slater brought Posey home with a one-out double.

The Diamondbacks finally got to Suarez tied it in the sixth. Ketel Marte led off with a double to the fence in right-center. Owings was called out on a groundout to third on a close play. Arizona challenged and the call was overturned after a video review, leaving runners at first and third and no outs. Jake Lamb’s sacrifice fly to left brought home Marte and made it 1-all.


Giants: RHP Johnny Cueto (right elbow strain) made his second rehab start Friday night for Triple-A Sacramento.

Diamondbacks: CF A.J. Pollock (fractured left thumb) made his first rehab start, with Triple-A Reno.


Yoshihisa Hirano set a Diamondbacks record with his 25th consecutive appearance without allowing a run, getting the final two outs of the seventh inning. The Japanese right-hander broke the previous record of 24 shared by Brandon Lyon (2008) and J.J. Putz (2012).

It’s tied with Shigetoshi Hasegawa of Seattle (2003) for second-longest streak in the majors by a Japanese-born pitcher. Koji Uehara of Boston had 27 straight scoreless appearances in 2011.


Giants RHP Derek Rodriguez (2-1, 3.82 ERA) makes his sixth major league start. San Francisco has won four of his previous five. Arizona RHP Shelby Miller (0-1, 12.27) makes his second start since returning from Tommy John surgery in the second game of the three-game weekend series.
