Wonder what it would be. Expansion? I think that would be a mistake.

They're taking another home game from the Saints in 2009 to play a game in L.A....

Edward P. Roski Jr., a part owner of the Kings and Lakers who has spent several years trying to lure the NFL back to the Los Angeles area, believes his latest concept for a stadium could help finally land a team. On Thursday, Roski will unveil his idea for a stadium in the City of Industry, near the southern intersection of the 57 and 60 freeways some 20 miles east of Los Angeles, said John Semcken, vice president of Majestic Realty, Roski’s real estate company.

This would be great for our chances to stay in the N.O. I'm all for it if they can get two more candidates out of the way for our potential departure from my favorite little corner in the world

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told the AP that the league wasn't involved in Thursday's news conference.

Honestly I don't think this "Major" announcement is going to be so major.

Not "will be".. its a big IF.

If a team committed to moving to Los Angeles, "we could begin construction in the final quarter of this year and have it ready for play for the first exhibition game in 2011," Semcken said.

San Diego and Oakland are both likely candidates to move to LA.

I dont think it happens though.

I think they build the staduim, get a super bowl and try to lure San Deigo Or Oakland there..
