    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

    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.

    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.

    lol, LA City Council.

    This city and the "people" that live here ruined basketball for me, and make life a living hell every single day from their insufferable nature and general doucheosity. They better not ****ing ruin football for me too.

    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.
