So the City of Los Angeles looks to be cleared for a New Stadium to draw a NFL team back to LA and I see Adam Schefter and a few other media outlets say San Diego & Oakland are the front runners. I know that Oakland & San Francisco were thinking about a Co-Stadium like the two NY teams have, but it could be built in the Bay Area...
I guess we'll see one day a New LA team playing in the NFL, the question now is will they have a good fanbase...
Looks and sounds like it's going to be the LA Chargers, which is the least exciting option imo since SD is already out there in CA. My favorite pick is the Rams. Been there, have a history and the big city move would do wonders for the team in so many areas. Raiders should stay in Oakland.
I think unless they are gonna use the stadium as a 2 sport stadium, like use the Dodgers and whatever NFL team ends up there, it's not gonna work. The Dodgers are bankrupt and football was tried twice there and didn't work. L.A. is Laker town and always will be.
I would hate to see the Chargers move there. I am really against franchises moving cities, I know it works from time to time, but I'm not usually a fan of moving teams.
once Farmer's Field is built, I think the WWE will indeed soon be bringing Wrestlemania back to Los Angeles
I wonder if the new LA football team would be on TV here in Las Vegas like the Lakers, Clippers, Dodgers, Angels, Ducks, Kings, etc are on TV here in Las Vegas?
I agree the Rams are the best option for LA. They used to be in LA. and LA makes more geographical sense than St. Louis as a city in the NFC West (so if it isn't the Rams, perhaps the new LA team could bump St. Louis into another division and take their place in the NFC West?)

I'd have to think its the Jaguars that would be the team to move, which would force some realignment.
As I mentioned on the other board, the stadium could work as a football only sports facility if its domed. That way it makes it more accessible for large conventions, which would be the real money maker besides concerts.
