It's the least they can do, considering how badly their baseball team owns ours.
Sad but too true. Ugh.

I think two teams are more likely than one - twice as many billionaires can to avail themselves to this market in a new venue. I'm going with the Rams and, if Mark Davis is bought out, the Raiders. Deja vu all over again.

Can't wait to become a Rams fan! I'm tired of having to pick a team every year that I like. Hopefully, the build the stadium in DTLA or Inglewood. Anywhere else would be a shame.

And I'd like to resume being a Rams fan. The last couple seasons they were here were brutal. But the, um, "ownership issue" has since resolved itself.

Isnt it better to have a team in LA, and then use a smaller, yet still viable city as the relocation threat? I mean, I would rather have a new stadium built in SoCal than a new one in Jacksonville. Even if those small market teams do get a new stadium, it will put such a burden on the community, it has to affect the team's revenue.

My guess is that Jacksonville will get moved to LA. Awful team with poor attendance in the last several years. The big question is where they are going to build a new stadium. The area by the 210 and 605 has a lot of space so maybe they'll build out there.

Supposedly the current thought is on Inglewood. This week on KFI, the mayor said there is a stadium in the works and it won't receive a dime of LA tax money. According to Garcetti (the mayor), it has private investment funding. I hope that whatever team gets moved here gets renamed with an LA theme. Rams doesn't sound very SoCal even though they had an almost 50 year run here. Don't do what Houston did though and name them after the state. The Californians doesn't sound very menacing like the Texans.

Spanos should quit whining; if it weren't for the absurd NFL TV policy that all of his team's home games which are televised in SD absolutely MUST be televised in LA, no one in LA would care less about that team.

The NFL's long-running position that LA is a 'secondary' TV market to SD is beyond asinine which is why so many of their home games wind up on TV here in LA as well as in Palm Springs, but that's the way the NFL hierarchy thinks.
