    Meh...if it's not the Raiders I don't really give a rats ass who LA brings....won't go to the games anyways. Only positive I would see is bringing the Chargers and then I can watch the Raiders when they come play the Chargers

      Moving the chargers wouldn't be a bad idea at all. Half the people in socal are chargers fans anyways. It would suck for the people in San Diego but the drive isn't horrible.

        Thing is that the majority of people in San Diego don't care. And the ones who do will make the drive.

          This article is a useful read on the situation.

          The quote below is in regard to building a new stadium in San Diego.

          “We’re done, finished (if Brown’s proposal becomes policy),” Chargers spokesman Mark Fabiani said Friday. “Redevelopment money is an essential part of the downtown concept and without it, the project is dead.”

            Very good article.

            If the city of LA can't sell the bonds, I'd be more than happy for the City of Industry proposal to get the stadium, as it would be about six miles from my house. Truth be told, I think it makes more sense from an infrastructure standpoint, as there is a **** ton of land there, the freeway system at that location can bring a ton of people in and out quickly (unlike downtown LA), and the City of Industry is centered around, well, industry and business.

            On the other hand, I can see why the powers at be are pushing for downtown LA, as it has more sex appeal. The company that did it transformed the area around Staples center from an utter ghetto to a place where you can actually take your kids if you want to.

            Either way, it seems like a team is coming regardless and the ball will really get moving after the new CBA is agreed to.

                Eh, the NFL and networks have already been conditioning us for it. Once the Chargers started doing well again, the NFL decided Los Angeles was an extended media market of SD, so we've had Charger games for the last few years.

                It depends on who comes.

                  I hope it's an AFC team so I can see the Browns more.

                        I actually think the idea of markets doesn't matter anymore. Even so, the TV execs and negotiators still use the concept to try to attract the biggest ad revenues. With the Sunday Ticket package, local fan bases mean little to the bottom line. The big difference will be in overall revenues. The stadium will make the owners richer for shared revenues and private revenues. This probably bodes well for the future salary cap. In the end, LA should be able to support an NFL team, given its populace, but it has yet to be a viable solution.

                          I am going to guess that he gets money for multi-use stuff given how hard he has been trying to get any and all football games in that amusement park of a stadium

                            you think the sunday ticket package actually has more than a negligible effect on nfl revenues (not trying to be snarky, i've generally assumed the amount directv paid the nfl for it was next to nothing compared to the standard tv contracts)? i'm also not sure how the physical stadium will help all that much... is the NFL getting richer from the cowboys new field or is jerry jones getting richer (again, i guess the question is, does the NFL actually share those revenues, or are the owners able to call the stadium some kind of multi-use facility to keep the money from it out of the pool)?
                            I think that the tavern licenses on Sunday Ticket are a huge shared revenue source. The individual home license isn't that much. Pretty much any bar with a hope at getting revenue will have to purchase the DirecTV tavern license with the sports packages. That money and price point is set by the NFL. CBS and FOX get a piece of it for airing their broadcasts, but a lot of that money goes to the owners.

                            Some stadium revenues are shared, but club seats and suites are not right now. It is possible that a percentage of that money will have to be shared under the new CBA. My understanding is that owners share the ticket revenues and most of the food and parking, but suites and local TV/radio deals are not shared. If that changes in the new CBA, that might impact the cap.
