L.A. City Council approves plan

Fans of poorly supported teams around the league had better pucker up. It looks like L.A. is about to steal a franchise with the league's approval.

I hope its not Jacksonville. The tarps aren't very loud so its like a home game when we play there.

I just hate that it has to be anyone. L.A. takes ages to get their act together and yet some of these deluded stooges think they have a chance of luring more than one team to their new stadium. Should make them take back the Rams.

I hate to say it because I live here now but the Bucs aren't selling jack here. I know they have some crazy lease in place but we all know those can be broken.

When an owner moves his team for ridiculous reasons, yeah, I hate it too.
But when a team can't sell out its stadium and has to black out all its home games, I think a move is in order. Man up and support your team or lose them to LA

relocation not expansion...

if anything it should/could possibly shake up our division and we wont be the only big market in the afcs.. nashville, indy, & jax are terrible markets, houston is a bigger msa than all 3 combined..

Ranking the teams in likelihood of relocating to LA:

1) Raiders - They're not getting a new stadium in Oakland
2) Jaguars - Can get out of their lease for $60 million, chump change in the NFL
3) Rams - Have an escape clause in 2015
4) Chargers - Have an escape clause in 2013, but are trying to work a deal to stay in San Diego

I think Davis' son will eventually sell and the team moves to LA. It's possible both the Raiders and Rams move and share the stadium.

It's about time for Los Angeles to get another NFL team to ignore. :kitten:

Good to be a Texan. That's my main feeling.

Years ago if this scenario came up you might wonder about Bud. But here, now, I know Bob loves Houston and Houston loves Bob.

Are they going to wait till they have a team to actually build it. I seem to remember San Antonio building a stadium but forgeting to get the team.

Friendly curiosity here, are you a Texan fan?? If so, I fail to see how California, your home or not, would affect your football mood.

A team in LA isnt going to sell out games unless they are winner .... Thats a proven fact. They havent been above to keep how many teams over the years ?!


I think we all know the NFL wants a team there. I feel for the city that loses their team to LA and maybe even worse , I feel for the teams who play in the division with that team that moves to LA .... I can easily envision some bias twards a team from LA because of the money to be made .... Not to mention the home of ESPN.

Dallas isn't changing divisions, so you can forget about that. I could see the Rams, Raiders, or Chargers moving there since they all have some ties to LA. If the Rams move to LA, I could see a scenario where the Jaguars could then move to St. Louis.
