It's out of the Chargers, Rams, and Vikings right now.
What about the Raiders?

I always found it bizarre that San Francisco/Oakland has 2 football teams, when they can barely support one (49ers) as it is.

In the state of California, it should make sense that 49ers and Raiders go to LA more so than they stay there and leave LA without a team.

I'd say Raiders (and I'm sure others here would too seeing how they already have a BIG fan base in L.A. still), but with the Niners building their new stadium, there's talk of the Raiders sharing with them.

But who knows? Oakland is still a candidate as well...

Stan Kroenke who owns the Rams is a finalist to buy the Dodgers, it is seriously rumored that if he does get the Dodgers he will move the Rams back to Los Angeles, and maybe even build a football stadium next to Dodger Stadium.

There ars still some Ram fans that would love for the Rams to move back to Los Angeles. They never should've left if it weren't for that woman.

Farmers Field in Downtown and the City of Industry stadium is pretty much the only games in town as far as a new stadium in L.A. goes. Farmers Field more than anything, so that's a no.

But there's still a good chance of the Rams coming back.

There is a catch to both of those stadiums being built. They have to secure an NFL team first. And if Stan Kroenke gets the Dodgers, he wont agree to move the Rams into either proposed stadiums if he wanted to build another stadium in the Dodger Stadium parking lot.

I guess it wouldn't matter much to me, I like the design of Farmers Field, but I think I would much rather drive to Chavez Ravine, then downtown LA to see the Rams if they move back.

And if they win, they will not regret moving to LA.
the Rams were in L.A. for almost 50 years, i would love to see them return to renew, resurrect the 49ers-Rams Rivalry, keep the Raiders in Oakland

This was more likely to happen than a team moving to LA. If the stadium falls through than lucky for the fanbases of the teams rumored to go.

Well this could be another example of L.A. not getting their sh*t together.

But it looks like we're gonna have to wait a few weeks to see if it happens or not.
