You beat me to it. I'm still waiting for them to get to the Superbowl, though.

Certain areas have such a love for the college game that a pro team won't survive. LA is certainly one of them.
I have to respectfully disagree. L.A. is not a good football town. Having grown up there, L.A. has too many people from too many places to be a good football town. There are so many people there that has jumped onto the SC bandwagon. 6 years ago, before Carroll, when the Trojans blew, you didn't see all these so called SC fans. Bama is certainly a football state, but, So Cal, no.

Too many gangters not enough fans. Who wants to go to a football game in LA? Obviously not enough of the sane ones.

the problem LA has is that there are too many other things to do when it is nice out. Georgia did her best to make sure that the Rams couldn't make money while in Anaheim, a Rams player was interviewed around the time of the move, saying he couldn't find any Rams gear in LA. She stopped putting merchandise out so that the Rams would lose money and she could use that as an excuse to move the team.

In terms of market size, L.A. has what the NFL wants. The problem is L.A. doesn't seem to want the NFL. They'll never have two teams again for sure, but never say never with one team. And Anaheim would not be a bad place to put a franchise. They'll have to get a team that's already playing. The NFL won't expand again; there are already enough teams.

The NFL will eventually come back to LA. Not because LA wants a team, but because the NFL wants to be there. They won't launch an expansion team, but the next time a franchise wants to move, just watch what city the NFL pushes for.

Right now, don't be surprised if it's the Chargers. They're still trying to get a stadium passed in San Diego, so stay tuned. You'll also want to watch the Vikings, Jaguars, and Saints. Then you have to think of realignment, which would be easy to accomplish with the Chargers, but not so with the other teams.

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Chargers head back up there eventually. The Chargers started in LA, after all.

The issue with LA is that there hasn't been a team that needs to move. And the NFL hasn't added an expansion team.
There are plenty of people that will watch the NFL on a weekly basis in LA....
The city is long overdue for a new stadium. Supporting the Collesseum is one of its biggest problems. They need a stadium that is Truly downtown. The Collesseum is in South Central. A perfect spot is near Staples Center.
