    I am opposed to the whole idea. What do you think?

      Because they plan on stealing a team.

    Yeah, the Raiders, Chargers, and Rams were once located there.  What's wrong with football in LA?

      Apparently it didn't work out 3 times... history repeats itself.

        Exactly, there's a reason they are all former tenants.

        It actually looks like there is a high possibility of getting the Chargers.  The city of San Diego has been bankrupt for the the last 5 or 6 years, and they don't plan on building them a new stadium.  Even if they don't go to LA, their time in SD is currently limited.

        When those teams left it was more about greed from the owners than anything else.

          That and the half empty stadiums.

            If bad teams had reasonable prices they would get much larger crowds but when you are worse than last yr and ticket prices are up doesn't urge you to go.

              Sure doesn't. And the Raiders were a playoff team in '93 when they were averaging 41,000/game while the NFL average was 65,000. So it wasn't even a matter of them being a losing team.

              I actually was looking yesterday for info on the tickets to the local UFL team. I figured it would be worth it just to go and see what was doing and I figured what the hell it's a live football game. So I went to the website and the cheapest tickets are $20 plus a $4 convenience fee (what the convenience is I don't know since you pick the tickets up at the box office) and another $8 for parking. They are selling the good seats for $50 to a minor league game in its first season. They've yet to sell more than 12,000 tickets in a stadium that seats 30,000 and a good chunk of those sales have been comps to the casinos. Logic would tell you to sell as cheap as possible and try to build a fan base.

          I sure hope the chargers don't go back to LA....

    I live just outside of LA and although I am transplant (originally from Philly) I would appreciate to have a football team that I can one day cheer and criticize.

        People in LA are suppose to be rich. I thought they all fly to the Charger games.

    From a pure market size, it seems like LA should have a team.  I keep hearing Jaguars, but I'd take the Bolts, if I were LA.

    On ticket prices, Oakland keeps getting blacked out in the Bay Area.  Maybe they'll read this and drop their prices:)

      I don't see that being any different among any potential owners for a team in LA, especially since they will have to pay for a billion dollar stadium to get one there. Why even bother with something that is doomed to failure?

        because money can buy anything

        LA if it gets a team will get a loser and I can't see them supporting a loser.

    Personally, I think an NFL team in Los Angeles would be good.  The best bet for LA is to attract an existing franchise.  One of the franchise LA could attract is the Jacksonville Jaguars.  They are having difficulty attracting fans to their stadium and they have one of the better venues in the NFL.  Their current owner is upset with the fan base because their numbers have been dropping over the last few years.  Part of it, I am sure, is the economy in northern Florida and secondly, it is the product they are putting out the field.  The Jags are a talented franchise who ownership may entertain taking the team to LA. 
    I do not know how fans would feel about this but the Rams are available.  Unless the deal that is in the works fails, they will be seeking other options.  The Rams have a decent fan base in St. Louis but it has slipped considerably since the "Greatest Show on Turf" seasons.  So, those are just a few options for fans to consider.
