NFL to L.A.

August 10, 2011

I know I’m a few days behind on this one; however, I still think it merits the conversation at almost any point until it happens.  The city of Los Angeles has approved the building of a $1.2 billion stadium provided that AEG can get a franchise to commit to a long-term lease.

The San Diego Chargers have been a team most linked to the move to Los Angeles, which wouldn’t be to abrupt on fans, they’d at least stay in the state.  Today Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf said for Vikings fans not to worry about the move to L.A. as talks have started to go somewhere on a new stadium for them.

To me, the move that makes the most sense is for Jacksonville to high tail it out of there and head straight to that beautiful $1.2 billion stadium.   doesn’t really have the support of its own fans, even from day one (and I watched their hall of fame game against the panthers when they were both expansion teams), last year just showed how few people are watching that team.  The other teams in question at least seem to be consistently competitive and do a far more superior job selling out games.
