If the stadium is built with private money, then I will vote for getting a team.
I think all the proposals are for private funding. That's why LA has been without a team for 15 yrs But the Staples Center & Dodger Stadium were also private funding. I don't think California spends public money for sports [but I could be wrong on this]. Does anyone know if city\ county or state monies is ever used to build stadiums?

I still think there is a chance that the 49ers stadium deal in Santa Clara could fall through. There is a long road to get it completed and the financials are suspect. If / when it falls apart, they'll be looking to pull up the stakes.

Yeah, training in Vero Beach had everything to do with appeasing the 5 brooklynites who still considered the Dodgers their "bums".

Uh huh. You bet.

Fall through what? It's a done deal. The support posts are being pounded into the ground as we speak.

The financials are weak. No project is done until it opens. It can stop at any point.

Exhibit A - downtown Sunnyvale.

Those proposals are competing for the same hypothetical team. It would go to one stadium or the other. LA's not getting two teams.

LA has the market to support two teams, and not everybody would have access to each stadium.

That's why buidling one OC/Inland Empire/ East LA would serve purpose
Los Angeles Football Stadium at Grand Crossing

And thats why one downtown would serve purpose
Farmers Field

They are two completely different projects, thats what people dont understand that they are actually working on TWO not just one, LA has the market for it, and who's to say they won't be getting two teams? And that it's gotta be one or the other? The websites + locations suggest otherwise, they would not go through all that if these weren't both serious projects.
