Expansion versus Relocation

Click for IMDB including trailer.
OK.  So various sources report:

AEG president Tim Leiweke said that Philip Anschutz is prepared to purchase majority interest in a team.  AEG has spoken to the Vikings, Chargers, Rams, Raiders, and Jaguars.  [Some reports include that some of these teams deny it.]

Let's leave aside the interesting question ownership motivation.

We all know that the tradeoff for the current group of team owners that comprise the NFL is in terms of what should be a pretty "monstrous" expansion fee v. what they can extract from allowing an owner to move an existing team (a supermajority must OK the move).

Which will it be Sports Economics Fans?  Expansion or relocation?
