Its looking very legit and its getting the backing from NFL ownership heavyweights in Mara and now Robert Kraft of the world champion Patriots, which is key in influencing other owners. This isn't just smoke and mirrors such as an owner landing his private jet at LAX, this is very legit and it will happen.

Here is an article I read in Yahoo sports about the Rams making a power play move to Los Angeles, and it makes a lot of sense.

I should have known an Eagles hate comment was coming after that. At least the Eagles never relocated out of Philly. Can't say the same for cities like Los Angeles.

Lets not also forget that the Eagles have 3 NFL Championships. More than the Los Angeles Rams have. #facts

For the last 20 years LA has been used as leverage by NFL teams

"You better build us a stadium or were moving to LA."


It works every time

It's not like there is tons of public money in LA being thrown at potential NFL teams, it's really just the size of the market that is the allure (and the weather is pretty nice too, ha). So why can't SD, if it becomes vacant, be the new leverage city? The thing is, there will always be a leverage city out there, even if LA is filled. For example, if LA only gets the Rams, then the leverage ploy would still be there as a potential 2nd team could share the Kroenke stadium.

If LA gets the Chargers and the Rams, then SD becomes the bargaining chip. Or perhaps St. Louis if they fund a stadium.

The leverage game will continue whether LA gets teams or not.

I doubt most other cities or metro areas have as much leverage as Los Angeles. What's the second largest market that's currently without an NFL team? I could see the NFL trying to eventually get 1 NFC team and 1 AFC team back into the L.A. market. Maybe UCLA plays its home games in this stadium. The area would be in the Super Bowl rotation every few years.
