New York lost the Dodgers and Giants in the same year.

Good thing the new arena plans are back in the work. I for one don't believe LA should have another team. Not even a big fan of having two teams in the same market and the fact California makes up 4 of the 5 Pacific Division teams.

Yeah but New York didn't lose 2 teams in the same sports league, which is much worse.

Thinking Anaheim is the same as LA is your first mistake.

As it was with the owner of the Angels.

In other news, Frank McCourt pilfered $200M from the Dodgers, MLB alleges.

yeah, when the Dodgers and Giants left New York, New York still had an MLB team with the Yankees, meanwhile when the Rams and Raiders left L.A., there was no remaining and still no NFL team in the L.A. Metropolitan area, so L.A.'s situation was worse
