One really has to wonder if he wants to move the team. Pissing off both the city you're in and the city you're trying to attach to the name of your franchise is not the greatest way to appeal to your "fans".
Of course, the Rams also played there back in the day, moved to St. Louis and started winning SuperBowls. So maybe Moreno wants to follow in their footsteps (ignoring Nov. 2002 for a moment).

Then they should call themselves the New York Angels. That makes just about as much sense.

Was it good or bad for the game? Depends on who you are, and where you stand in the game: 1. It's great for teams that are actually in contention for a playoff run. And take this scenario into consideration.
