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?
