If anybody can help me on this it is appreciated. What I want to know is what teams use what planes for their charters across the country, for insistance, does anybody know what my beloved yankees use when they have to go on the road?

Mark Cuban bought a 757 for the Mavericks about 2 years ago
I've seen an Atlanta Thrasher's 737 at LGA
I know that when the hornets were in Charlotte they charters a 737-200 from Pace airlines
I saw Oklahoma University's team getting off a CO 767 on TV last week
As for owners:
Tom Hicks (owners of texas rangers and the dallas stars) has a GV
Wayne Hyzinga (owner of the Dolphins) has a BBJ
The owner of the Indianapolis Colts has a Dassault
Mark Cuban has a GV

Actually Mark Cuban never bought a 757. It's leased from Pace Airlines. Last week the TrailBlazers were in Cleveland and they flew in on N801DM.
The Cleveland Browns always charter a Delta 767, and the Indians usually take a Continental 737-800. And for the Cavs, they have their own 737-200 they use registered as N583CC. There are some photos in the gallery. Ohh and the Pittsburgh Penguins have a 737-200 also. Not sure what the Reg is though.

The Tennessee Titans always charter a Delta 757-200 whenever they travel anywhere. It is usually DAL flight number 9885.
I have seen the Oakland Raiders come in this year on an Hawaiian 767-300, the Buffalo Bills came in on a World Airways MD-11, the Miami Dolphins came in on an America Airlines 757-200, The Pittsburgh Steelers always come in on a US Airways 757-200, The Tampa Bay Buccaneers left here last Sunday afternoon on a Continental 757-200, and the Indianapolis Colts came in on a Northwest 757-200.
About two weeks ago when the Green Bay Packers were in Oakland for Monday Night Football... They returned to Green Bay on a Northwest 747-200.
Mighty big plane for a football team!
There have been a few other teams that have come into Nashville this year but I forgot to look and see what they flew on.

The New England Patriots have switched to a Delta 767-300.
New York Yankees: CO 757
Boston Red Sox: DL 738
Kansas City Chiefs: DL 763
Jacksonville Jaguars: DL 757
St. Louis Rams: AA 757
Buffalo Bills: World MD-11
New York Giants: UA 757/767 (I don't know which, but it is a UA Boeing, or has been in the past)
New Orleans Hornets: have their own private B727 (I have spotted it at MSY...it was parked on the other side of 10/28, across from the terminal area)
I once had the opportunity to fly with the Boston Celtics in 1990 from EWR to BOS on a Continental 737. They were on the D/E/F side in coach. Pretty interesting (in hind-sight) being on a flight with a good number of Hall of Famers.

The St. Louis Blues use a charter service (737s) out of SUS (Sprit of St. Louis Airport). Up until this year they had a deal with AA but with the pull out, decrease of advertising with the team and ridiculous costs...they decided to go elsewhere.
