Rams? Chargers? Raiders?

Curious who OC roots for with all the recent franchise moves around it.

My wife is a Cowboys fan. I could care less about NFL. I’m not a big NFL watcher

When I lived out there, nobody really cared about the NFL. I was at a bar the night before opening day of the NFL season and some guy mentioned "big day tomorrow". I responded something about opening day, and he said no, he was talking about the Long Beach Car Show, he doesn't care much about football, people there are more about individual sports etc. etc. I was surprised L.A. had two NFL teams.

Chargers couldn't sell out a soccer stadium last year and were essentially the road team (in terms of fan turnout) for all their home games. LA is a terrible football market from a per capita perspective but because of the size of the media (TV) market, I guess it makes sense.

I grew up in Orange County. Closer to LA is more Raidera fans, but further south you have more Chargers fans. In my experience, a lot of Mexican people are Raidera fans regardless of the town they live in.
Of course the Rams there there now, not sure how they fit into the picture though, I moved out of state in 2014.

When I was growing up I was a Ram's fan. When they moved I quit being one, and now I rarely watch football games anymore.

That was a good thing for me. I was able to take my son who is a big Charger fan to a game buying tickets last minute (day of game). Great seats on the second tier first row close to the 50 yard line. He had a great time.

OC really doesn't have a team per say. In our home, we have a Charger fan, Dolphin fan and Ravens fan. The problem with LA/OC is there are a lot of fair weather fans. If teams are winning, you will see much more support for the teams.

The other factor are the many transplants who often root for their old hometown team.

Pretty much this. Although, for what it's worth, the Chargers were assigned to our TV market for a long time, even when they were in San Diego.

People around here seem more into college teams (UCLA and USC) than the NFL.

And don't forget, they went well over 2 decades without a football team, which considering they are the 2nd largest US media market is very telling....
