  • Rams back to L.A.

    After a 20+ year absence, the Rams are returning to Los Angeles. Feel bad for the fans in St. Louis, but if the Rams don't start winning it might take some of the sting out of their loss.

      Chargers and Raiders are really hot about this decision and their chance to go to LA. I have my doubts the city will support the team, let alone two. After all, they already had two teams, (Raiders/Rams) leave.

      The mayor of St. Louis is also peeved. He says the city will never again work with the NFL.

        I fail to understand the NFLs insistence on having a franchise back in LA, there will be very little fan support, there never was in the past when the Rams were still there, the weather is great and there are many other things to do than sitting in traffic going to a football game, Barron Hilton and Al Davis both found that out the hard way and so will Stan Kroenke!

            If the Rams are moving back to L.A. does that mean the Cardinals are moving back to Chicago. We could also have the Colts move back to Baltimore, the Ravens move back to Cleveland and the Browns will move to St. Louis and win three Super Bowls in seven years driving Cleveland fans insane.

              NFL Football should be banned from cities that are warm during the season.

                I hear the reason the NFL owners are backing away from the idea of the Raiders and Chargers sharing a stadium is it would require the realignment of the AFC West and the NFC West.
                The bylaws forbids two teams from the same division sharing the same stadium or city.
                The Giants the the Jets share a stadium but are from different leagues.
                The committee doesn't want to go through the ordeal of realignment again, and neither do any of the other teams.
                The other issue is, if the Chargers move, there will be another team that will want to move to San Diego, most likely Jacksonville, a team that is struggling to sell seats, this would also require a realignment.

                  I would love to see realignment. Two conferences of 17 teams, adding two new teams, one to each conference. Play everyone in your conference once and seed the top 6 teams in each for the playoffs.

                  This creates a more balanced schedule in each conference, and eliminates inter-conference play, which I despise because of repeat games during the Super Bowl.

                  If the Rams are moving back to L.A. does that mean the Cardinals are moving back to Chicago. We could also have the Colts move back to Baltimore, the Ravens move back to Cleveland and the Browns will move to St. Louis and win three Super Bowls in seven years driving Cleveland fans insane.

                      $$$$$

                      Big market there. NFL planning a NFL-West Complex for things like the Pro Bowl, Combines, SuperBowl, and even Olympic events.

                      The Inglewood area will see a massive economic/population boom.

                      If you rent in that area I hope you have a looong contract already.

                      If not... your rent will probably quadruple.

                      The Clippers (nba) would be smart to move back to the Forum (inglewood)
                      but I think they are stuck at the Laker's place for like 5 more years.

                        Goddell would love to realign the NFL, with teams in Mexico City, London, Tokyo, maybe one in Moscow!

                          I don't see a problem with Mexico City. Perhaps two teams in Mexico. Travel/time zone issues are no greater than in the US and the popularity of the sport is there.

                          I am not in favor of Europe or Asia because of travel related issues and the flop that was NFL Europe. I think the average fan in Europe sees our game as a nice novelty, but nothing more.
