I've spoken to a couple Angelinos and from what I get, it's mainly Raiders.

The last thing L.A. needs is another stadium downtown. The traffic already sucks to the max on the 110 (and just about every other freeway there). Sundays are one of the only enjoyable days to go for a drive and enjoy relatively light traffic. Even that will change with another downtown stadium. Add a Lakers, Clipper, or Kings game to the mix across the street, and you got pure hell. I'm sure they'll up the cost of parking per car to around $30 as well (for both venues). What a joke.

Well, it's either this or drive about 20+ miles away to City of Industry.

They're not gonna use the Rose Bowl OR redevelop the Coliseum. Although...

... the second idea would be interesting, if they could clear some hurdles.

I would have no problem with the drive. I would MUCH prefer this. It just makes sense.

L.A. is screwed no matter where they put the stadium as far as traffic is concerned.

Their MTA has some nifty new projects in the works but none of them would be applicable to the City of Industry.

My vote? Either Jags or Raiders.

How much of a ruckus would the East Bay raise if they actually left though?

NOT happening.

32 teams is perfect right now and the NFL already expressed that it did not want to expand anytime soon.

It would be a shame if a city would lose there's...just to support a fourth team in California. How many dang teams do they need?

Apparently 4.

I gotta be honest, I've actually enjoyed L.A. NOT having a team these past 16 years (damn), and I don't think they should have one. BUT, it doesn't matter what I think cause it's gonna happen anyway. The second largest market in the country without a franchise for the most popular sport in the country just doesn't work for them.
