the Politics that have prevented the NFL from returning to L.A. did not affect Baltimore, Houston, St. Louis, Cleveland, from getting the NFL back

You know, I realize it's just people's opnions.... but do you REALLY believe that the Jaguars will move to L.A. or are you just following what you think everyone else is thinking?

the NFL and L.A. have been going in circles ever since the Rams and Raiders left, i will believe it when it actually happens, when the moving trucks, vans, actually arrive in L.A.

Their new owner vows he is not moving them. I think most people jump to the Jaguars conclusion because they have a hard time selling tickets. They should be worried more about putting a consistent, quality product on the field then moving the team. A good team will put the butts in the seats!

I'll say it again, the Chargers are the team that makes the most sense, by far.

I say it WILL be the Chargers. They've been the front runners since the announcement. They have a crap stadium with little chance to get a new facility anytime soon. And they already have a fan base in L.A.

Jaguars aren't goin' anywhere... at least, not to L.A. within the next decade.

I heard the deal was a success in Northern California for the new 49ers stadium in Santa Clara, and I heard there was public-funds, taxpayer money involved, weird, i'm very shocked, I thought California had a tradition of always flat-out refusing to use any form of Public-Funds, Taxpayer dollars to foot the bill when building a Professional Sports Venue, Arena, Stadium, so i'm confused.

supposedly no public money is being used according to some reports. however, that private funding is an $850M loan that the city of Santa Clara is getting from Goldman Sachs, BOA and US Bank. Don't know about anyone else, but that seems to me to be a govt/public arrangement anyway you slice it. The city would service the loan through naming rights, ticket sales and rent ($30M/yr) among other income streams.

I think the stadium looks pretty cool.

OK, I think you can take Vikings off the list, news today sounded like they are getting a deal done for a new stadium in MPLS.

Yeah, I agree. After this, no way Vikings will leave now. Good for them, I don't want to see them leave MLPS. I couldn't care less about the Jaguars moving, but I def want to see the Bills and Vikings stay in the respective cities and not cave into the LA movement.
