This use to be true however ComicCon has become extremely mainstream. Think about it, just about every big budget summer movie comes from ComicCon. IronMan, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Batman, etc. Sci-fi and comic stories have become the norm now.


Regarding the OP topic, hell no we do not need a team here. There are way too many idiots still loving the Raiders. I really do not understand why people in LA love the Raiders. They were here what, 12 years and sucked for the vast majority of those years? They went back to Oakland because they think LA sucks. But yea, they do have "cool" colors so its ok to like them.




I really like how LA considers Walnut / City of Industry apart of LA now. Walnut is pretty much the last city in LA county and a 20 mile drive from Downtown LA but lets make it "LA's" team.

Any city who gets an expansion team sucks for the first 5 years...at least. The Jaguars and Panthers had good success at about the 7 year mark. Look at the Texans now, they are a top tier team and they started in 2002. My point is, LA fans are the most far-weather fans in the nation. There is a reason why the rest of the country makes fun of us with the "I'm gonna leave the game during the 7th inning so I can avoid traffic" jokes...its because they are true. The team would get very little fanfare until they get good. If they get little fanfare, a large portion of the profit is from ticket sales. So if they don't sell seats, they will do a blackout for LA like they do in San Diego with the Chargers now.

That sounds like a great idea...

really if you think about it, many of LA's big time sports teams came from somewhere else. The Lakers were from Minneapolis, the Dodgers came from Brooklyn, the Clippers came from San Diego, etc.

We don't want to lose any teams but rather gain another team in California. I wouldn't mind if the Jacksonville Jaguars were traded to LA though.
The Jags aint going anywhere bubba. The Raiders is LAs team. Believe it.


Haters are funny.

Yes, they need a new stadium and have been talking about this for ages.

Why would anyone think the Los Angeles area doesn't need a team?

Nita
Lies told by the media....get your facts right. Jacksonville sold out 3 games in a row this season, no blackouts....BUT San Diego, Tampa Bay, St Louis & Oakland cant say the same thing. Keep Jacksonvilles name off your fingers lady. The Jags are not moving.

RaiderNation is everywhere, not just Oakland or L.A. But they did happen to play there for a while, no?

For those who wear the colors but seem to have little connection with or knowledge about the actual team, you can blame NWA.

Remember the rams games, the coliseum and Angel stadium never sold out.

What are your opinions,
Do you think LA should have a team and would you support them if a team moved here
I'm kind of on the fence because there are too many thugs that go to games just to start sh-it. That's why I don't go to Dodger games or USC games. It's just a buzzkill because the lowlifes are too stupid to have clean fun. So F it, I won't go if they go. If LA can find a way to keep the bad element out, maybe keep ticket prices high, then who knows, a new team could be successful. You can't put the team in OC because the fans are too soft....so yeah I'm on the fence. Maybe put the team in Ventura County, 1000 Oaks, Camarillo--then charge an arm and a leg for tix?

lol, Dodger games have so many lowlifes there.

They could renovate the Rose Bowl and put an NFL team in Pasadena. That has never really crossed my mind before.

Not as sad as having a pro football team in the second largest city in America and have the games blacked out

Pasadena seems like a good spot but I have heard that one of the conditions for the NFL to LA is a NEW STADIUM that can host a Super Bowl. The owners don't want anymore renovations on 85 year old stadiums, ie. Soldier Field in Chicago. Also, the residents above the Rose Bowl have much pull and don't want the NFL there. So...that's what I've HEARD.

BTW, many teams do sell out, the areas that do not sell out, didn't sell out 5 years ago either.

NY and DC are nearly as cold as the Midwest in the middle of winter. Texas is a whole other ball of wax. Football is worshiped down there from the elementary school up.
