Market sizes adjusted?

Chappy, did you set the new market sizes for all the teams? If you didn't, since it's a new scale, I'd be happy to help figure this out.

Are these the correct cities? I've only got a couple of questions. In Tennessee, a case could be made for both Nashville and Memphis; and in Texas, it's between Dallas and Houston. In both of those cases, one is significantly larger than the other, but the smaller one's metropolitan area is significantly larger than the larger city's.

Of all the locations, the only two which don't really make sense are New Jersey being in Atlantic City, and North Carolina being in Wilmington Beach, neither of which area could support a major league club. Yet the Shore is an oddball in the league in many ways, if the league wants to cut them a pass, that's understandable, their location in Atlantic City is somewhat a part of league culture now I suppose. The Clippers are run by a charter owner, and I suppose there is some leeway to be granted there, too.

Chappy, I'm going to use these locations to calculate market sizes (my formula includes state population, as I've described on these boards before) and for stadium graphics. Correct me if I need to change one of these, I know that our specific team locations are already in the game, which is really cool.

Even though I know Koo's press releases state the the Clippers play in Wilmington, I have them in the game as being in Charlotte (mainly because the Clippers AAA affiliate is the Wilmington Waves).

I guess it's a little strange for a team from inland NC would have a boat for a logo though.   ;)

I'll have you know that here in downtown Charlotte there's a plaque noting the location of the Confederate Navy Yard.  We smartass Yankee transplants pointed that out as a possible reason for lack of success during the war.

Ten-four.

I believe that the new game uses a 1-20 scale for market sizes now, not the strange 8-tier arrangement it used to have.
