Football in Los Angeles


Chatter about NFL Football in Los Angeles has started up again, but the team surrounded by the talk this time is the St. Louis Rams. Rams owner Stan Kroenke has purchased 60 acres of land in the Inglewood area in between Hollywood Park and the Forum. The land might be small for a stadium, but it doesn’t stop the people in Los Angeles and St. Louis from thinking about a team packing up their bags and heading to Southern California.

Chargers fans are way too familiar with this talk. This time around we aren’t in the center of the chatter, but I am sure we will find our way in the conversation somewhere. Any time football in Los Angeles is mentioned, the same few teams get their names thrown into the hat.

Football will likely be back in Los Angeles. We all are just not sure what team is going to be heading in that direction. The Chargers would love to have a stadium built in San Diego, but the steps to get there still have not happened. We have to sit around and wonder if our  team is going to pack up in the middle of the night to head north.

Football in Los Angeles. Some team is going to get there. Will it be the Rams? Will it be the Chargers? Will it be the Raiders? Will it be the Jaguars?

    Please god, not the Raiders. I can barely tolerate the criminals, I mean fans that are here now.

    I hope the Chargers stay in

      There aren’t any criminals in LA now?? Only if Raiders move there there will be?? Ignorant…..

  • Mark Viguri

    If Spanos ever did move. Watching the Bolts play in a state of the art stadium up in LA wouldn’t be the end of the world. It’s a lot better than watching them move elsewhere like San Antonio, Portland or Vegas.

    Having the CHARGERS move is not an option we need to find a solution here in San Diego.

  • Stefanie Smith

    LA citizens don’t want the taxpayers footing the bill. This Rams’ owner did not buy the land for the Chargers to move there. So, not likely a Chargers landing spot. I heard a deal being floated around that Doug Manchester has a plan that would build a stadium with all private money. I am sure there is a catch to it, but if the City was not stuck floating bonds and guaranteeing to buy out all the seats for every game, then that is a good step. Manchester wants a site down on the water near the Convention Center. (He owns that hotel down there)..

    These rich folks have to start footing their own bills. I would venture we, the taxpayers, aren’t done paying off the last “stadium” upgrade.

    Any move by a team means a New Stadium; a “New Stadium” means personal seat licenses = (AKA) PSL’s.
    With PSL’s you get added revenue; added revenue is what the Spanos family wants to be competitive (they say) with other teams. What it means is that after the salary cap the net profit a team makes is what drives most owners interest in a team. The only shovel ready stadium project is the one being floated by Ed Roski in the City of Industry; he is ready to break ground (and has all the permits needed) if he can secure the approval of a team and the NFL (majority) team owners.
    * The Gaslamp plan is flawed by losing any tailgating and eradicating the contaminated soil from the old Greyhound bus maintenance yard. The voters in the City will not approve a new stadium when they have water pipes breaking every year, with “car damaging” pot holes going unfilled, and a 2.3 Billion pension fund deficit. The Chargers are NOT going anywhere soon including into a NEW stadium in San Diego.

    One last note, moving to a new stadium does NOT improve the performance on the field, having better players does!
