Re: five years of NFL at Rose Bowl
I kind of wonder if the push for an LA franchise has more to do with the NFL wanting another top notch Super Bowl/Probowl location than actually having a team in LA. New Orleans and Miami are getting old, and some of the alternate places they have used recently won't host another for a long time. Indy, Houston, Carolina, Phoenix, Jax, Tampa, Dallas, Detroit all hosted in the last 10 years, but I don't think any of them were ideal. LA is a perfect place to have the Super Bowl in early February. Big city, great weather, lots of media, good nightlife, etc etc. A new Jerry-world type stadium in that area would be a boon for the NFL.
