The buildup wasn’t there. ESPN was dominated by the non call and the AD trade demands. Had it been Saints/Patriots, the AD drama would’ve taken no more than a segment.Account of a reporter who was out there during the SB, skip to 10:55:

"No one cared"
That's probably the best solution. St. Louis is a baseball town,and that isn't changing anytime soon. They also had an NBA franchise that eventually relocated to Atlanta.I don’t think St. Louis needs a team. It’d be better for the Chiefs to expand their reach into St. Louis.
Such a transient city. A large portion of your market is from somewhere else any sport team ties usually tied to where u from
You hit on the bottom line for the NFL, which is the bottom line. A lower percentage of 5 million plus people is most likely going to be a greater number than a higher percentage of less than 2 million people.I live in Los Angeles. I keep saying this over and over and I really truly am shocked that this really simple truth somehow escapes the minds and research capabilities of a multi billion dollar company like the NFL.
I am from New Orleans. I will ALWAYS be a Saints fan. LA viewership is always going to be whack because it is essentially a city full of people from everywhere. The viewership numbers will likely skew to match closely with the nation as a whole.
It is pretty nice having a team here, I have gotten to see the Saints each of the past few seasons and the one coming up as well.
We all laugh at the fan attendance at Rams games (no Rams fans) .. but I think that is kind of the point. LA IS ACTUALLY a big enough market to warrant a team being here... but it is kind of more for the opposing fans than it is the city of LA.
That being said, lots of folks out in LA are fickle ... and making/winning the super bowl probably has/would have created more of a fan base out here. (I strongly lean to the theories about our NFCCG)
I do NOT think they need two teams here... that is the shocking part of all of this.
I got off point a little bit but... anyone who thinks viewership in LA for the Rams or Chargers is going to be high ... well they are stupid. The only way it really works is if they are playing the long game and trying to establish a team 10-15 years from now all the young kids growing up love and adore.
Say what you want about crappy LA fans ( I do hate them...) But they are very loyal to their Lakers.
