Honestly...how many times are they going to give LA a team...and then be forced to move it? I haven't kept up with all the ins and outs but hasn't it been the Raiders (twice? more?), Rams (at least once before that I know of),...were there more?

Hey, Roger. We’ve been through this before. We tried to tell you. Larger market doesn’t neccessarily mean more fans and more money. Los aangeles is a very flakey market. Why? Because Los Angeles is a mega-conglomeration of people from all over the country. A very large portion of LA metro area NFL fans are fans of teams that don’t reside in LA. You can’t force a team down their throats.

Los Angeles does not deserve an NFL franchise, much less two. Stupid is as stupid does.
It's would argue the Rams belong in L.A. They were there for fifty years. They should have never left. The only reason they relocated was because the owner wanted to go back to her hometown.
That being said, the Chargers should've never left for LA, but the problem is that the Spanos family has been nothing but trouble for the city of San Diego. When I traveled for the "Brees Retuns" game, the Spanos family were treated with disdain by the fans there.
To me, the optical situation would be the Rams/Raiders in L.A. while the Chargers go to Vegas.

Egg on Goodell's face.


LA is definitely supporting the Rams right now so the "LA cant support a team" narrative is false. They just don't care for the chargers. It was always a Rams/Raiders town.
Any city can support a winner.

2017 opener after a 4-12 season...



They won 46-9. This was the week after...

I remember watching the Thursday night game a few weeks ago in LA, and it looked and sounded like the crowd was, at best, 50/50 with Vikings fans. It looked like the Saints/Falcons games in Atlanta.
