Huh? LA doesn't even have a team for in the city for the most popular sport in the US? Until LA gets an NFL team it cannot be the Sports Capital of the US.


Phoenix? Have you ever been to a Dallas Cowboys vs. Arizona Cardinals football game? It is like being at Texas Stadium. Last year when I was there I told a local news crew "Welcome to Texas Stadium West"..they got a kick out that.

New York has the Yankees, they are still the most loved and hated team in America..Followed by the Dallas Cowboys I guess.

IF YOU READ YOUR STATISTICS L.A. BASKETBALL TEAM MAKES MORE REVENUE THAN ALL PHOENIX SPORTS TOGETHER

AND KOBE BRYANT A "LOS ANGELES PLAYER' HAS THE BIGGEST BOUGTH JERSEY RIGHT NOW AND PEOPLE LOVE THE LAKERS 3 TIMES HOW ABOUT THE MAVERICKS

Read the stats on NYC.. they predict adding something like another 3 million in twenty years. LA would have to more than double it's size. LA shouldn't aspire to be like NYC. Keep the housing stock steady and low, --it's the only police force that we have.

I think the point is that Phoenix has representation in every major sports organization - MLB, NBA, NFL, etc. . . there are not to many other cities that can claim that fact, not necessarily that the AZ teams are good or make more money than another team. What is important to consider about Los Angeles is where the growth is coming from. Americans are moving out and immigrants are moving in. This leaves a city with no middle class; what is left is the wealthy community that can afford the luxury and the poor hard working immigrants who live in poverty. Take a look at this article that was posted in the Political forum, http://www.opinionjournal.com/editor...l?id=110010045

Very interesting article.

LA Does have the most storied basketball team. I agree. But NY has the most storied Baseball team and Dallas has the most storied NFL team. Regardless of the Lakers (NBA is falling) LA still does not have an NFL team and the NFL is the most popular sport in the US. The closest thing to an NFL pro team is the USC football team.

I also agree that the Pro teams in Phoenix are usually weak and the fans are fair weathered.

LA might become the biggest city..who knows. NY has no room to grow and LA only has room to grow north (Palmdale/Lancaster) and up (like you said).

LA is still far behind these cities in terms of being a "Sports City"

NYC (Yanks, Mets, Giants, Jets, Knicks, and Nets)
Philly (Eagles, Phillies, 76ers, and flyers)
Chicago (Bears, Bulls, blackhawks ,Cubs and Sox)

LA is more on tier with Dallas

Dallas (Cowboys, Rangers, Mavericks and the annual Texas-OK game)
Los Angeles (Lakers, and Dodgers...with the Angels trying to sneak in)
