I'm in San Diego and a Chargers fan, but I'm optimistic that this won't happen. They have had a tough time getting a new stadium, and if they do it won't be within San Diego city limits anymore, it will be somewhere else in the county. When all is said and done though I think the Chargers are staying right here in San Diego County. L.A. can get their own team somewhere else.

If the situation in L.A. was bad enough so that the Rams moved out (and then the Raiders went back to Oakland), doesn't that tell you something about the fan base in that city? If I owned an NFL team, I would think twice before putting it in Los Angeles.

I think the league has enough teams so if they get one it should be by relocation only.

Well, how about we take info from the article and run with that:

In April, Roski listed the New Orleans Saints, Buffalo Bills, Minnesota Vikings, Jacksonville Jaguars, San Diego Chargers, Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers as teams that might move to L.A. and his new stadium.

Does LA really need an NFL franchise though? do the LA citizens really want one? It seems to me the area has been fine without one. But, it'll happen eventually.

I say if LA really wanted to see football, just go attend a USC or UCLA game.

It's not whether LA wants a NFL team or not, it's about busine$$. Metro LA has the U.S.' second largest population 12,875,587, the second largest media market and the world's third largest GDP. Oh, the NFL is coming, not if but when. The LA metro area including the Inland Empire could probably support three NFL teams.

You are absolutely correct

if the NFL wants to make money where else can they do?

What happened with the Rams, and Raiders exactly?
