Sure if you are the Raiders, the Rams, any of the whole Browns/Ravens/Colts triad. Those teams have shown they have no alligence to a city. I guess a team like the Steelers would take that into consideration...like they did this past Super Bowl. I believe Cowher said it best. "We only wear Black when we are at home...in Pittsburgh". There is more to it than money.

There are plenty of cities in the U.S. that want games and / or new teams. They surely would pay more than a European city can. We have been getting onto ships to get the heck outta there since 1492. Why the NFL wants to go back now is beyond me.
