Meh I think all of the games will sell out.
All of these could probably sell out a stadium in LA on their own; they have that many fans here.. Steelers, Giants, Patriots, Bears, Cowboys, Niners, Chargers, Jets, Raiders, and Packers.
The current terrible Dodgers and the terrible Clippers of a couple seasons ago would always sell out games when the star studded teams came to town. So add these to the for sure sell out list. Panthers, Saints, Lions, Eagles, Ravens, Texans, Denver*, Colts*.
The teams your left with might be tough, but during the first four or five seasons the allure of having a team will keep all the seats filled. BY then hopefully the team will be competitive..
On a given Saturday here, you can have 90k at the coliseum for USC, 90k at rose bowl for UCLA, 50k at dodger stadium, 50k at angels stadium, 19k at staples for the kings, 19k later in the day at staples for the lakers, 20k at home depot center for galaxy, and 20k over at honda center for ducks.
There are more than enough people to support the biggest sport in the country here.
