The NFL should ban putting 2 NFL teams in one city outside the New York sports market. Time has shown us that it just doesn't work. The Raiders are about to relocate again and we all know the history of the NFL in Los Angeles.

They had plenty of NFL fans, they just ran into local politicians who listened to the citizens and refused to buy a new stadium with luxury boxes for a billionaire.

Los Angeles is a unique city, it is the only city in which professional sports leagues needs the city of LA more than the city needs the league.

A perfect example is football. There was no way LA was going to hold itself hostage to using tax payer money to build a stadium for Georgia Frontierre!! That is why the Rams left LA. The LA fans slowly stopped supporting the Rams before they left for St. Louis due to a poor product and Georgia Frontierre!! And St. Louis was dumb enough to make them an offer the Rams couldn't refuse, which was also an offer that St. Louis couldn't keep up their end of the offer.

The Dodgers, Lakers and even the Kings are an example of how LA will support a winner. The Rams are now getting to the point where going to a Ram game is the place to be. Another example of the NFL needing LA more than LA needing the NFL is the value of the Rams organization, it has pretty much tripled since they moved to LA.

Stan Kreonke knew what he was doing, he knew how valuable the team would be if they moved to LA. Just wait until the new stadium is built in Inglewood!! The Rams organization will be one of the most valued franchises in all of professional sports.

Thanks for resurrecting this thread Colt. Here's my Bolt rundown:

The Chargers will be alright. They got lit up in Week 1 by a QB who nobody had any film on, plus we severely lost the special teams matchup (Tyreek Hill punt return TD, and a punt return fumble inside our own 10 yd line which sealed the loss) Add to that a couple critical dropped passes, and the loss looked worse than it really was. We're missing our best defensive player in Joey Bosa. We'll be fine.

As for the Bills game in Week 2, the Chargers dominated the 1st half and then sleptwalked through the 2nd half. Not much to take away from that game (good or bad).

The Fight for LA is next though. Rams are a 7 point favorite. I'm torn cause I root for both of them, but would probably prefer the Rams winning (as I'm a bigger fan of them).

I'd be happy with the Chargers getting off to a 2 -2 start to the season, and hopefully getting Bosa back for October onward.

While there isn't a top 5 elite guy, the Bolts probably have the best 4-man receiving core in the league. Barely any drop-opp between Keenen Allen, the two Williams (Mike & Tyrell), and Travis Benjamin.

Chargers seem to have gotten a steal in first round pick Derwin James (safety). He's made an impact in his first three games so far, just picked off Goff in the end zone.

Dominating win by the Chargers on Sunday in Cleveland. It was impressive, mostly because these are the types of games they would lose in previous years. The Browns had been in every game this season, either a field goal or a first down away from winning or tying all of 'em. So to come in there and win by 24 points, the Bolts made a statement.

Default Don't look now, but the Chargers may not be long for L.A.

https://bleacherreport.com/articles/...iability-in-la

If they end up moving again, my guess is San Antonio becomes a front-runner.

Another article, same points. I don't understand how the NFL thought this was going to be a good move? Nothing against the players, coaches and staff, but I am glad this is turning into a massive failure. A blatantly greedy owner is failing.
