Roski has been absent for all media since Casey came to bat. Majestic's spoleshole even pretended not having knowelege of the LA stadium plan. Majestic will be here telling everyone how he is the smartest man in the room and the people speaking the truth are somehow idiots.

I did not notice the article diaclose that the paper is a sponsor of the pay to attend job fair Roski ran a few months ago. All you guys that got hired raise your hand. It must be nice to be working. Uhoh, no hands. OK all you folks that have received a call to come for an interview, raise your hands. Still no one? How is this thing going to be built if you don't get some staff?
Just like I have said all along, the NFL is not going to move any team to LA. The TV money is too great in this market to risk it on a pasture peddler in Industry.

No Team
No Stadium
No Blimp
No Dice!

The L.A. area does not deserve NFL football, nor does it want it. Don't blame the lack of a stadium on fan interest. The Rams moved on, the Raiders moved on. Irwindale got taken to the cleaners by Al Davis, just as Roski will do to the San Gabrial Valley.
This is about money for Roski, not about jobs for the local people.

"Majestic's spoleshole even pretended not having knowelege of the LA stadium plan."

Not true. Semcken,(Who by the way is no 'hole' of any sort. He is a decorated Navy fighter pilot. And what service have you provided to your country?) has acknowledged the plan and has stated it has no effect on Majestic's plan. Back to lying again?

"Just like I have said all along, the NFL is not going to move any team to LA. The TV money is too great in this market to risk it on a pasture peddler in Industry."

And just how is the TV money in LA too great? The NFL TV contract is not negotiated on a market by market basis.

Once again we see the ever stupid DBS making up facts to fit his viewpoint.

Mikey need the work, so please fight on! More dumb urban planning advice, but Larry's fantasy life keeps him off of the streets, too.

SGV has too many Asians to support an NFL team. They don't care about any sports. Why have a stadium in Industry near Diamond Bar? Once again, you won't get local support there. At least in LA you have tons of people around. Stop kidding yourselves. Putting a stadium in Industry is the lamest thing to do.

But Industry has the strip bars. Where would the typical NFL fan want to go after a game? LA Live or a ti*ty bar? mmmmm. Maybe Roski does have a chance. After all what NFL team wouldn't want to be located in beautiful, cosmopolitan, alongside the Spearmint Rhino, City of Industry!

If a Football team is going to come back to the L.A area it should be in L.A - period. Diamond Bar is in the middle of nowhere, is served by a horribly clogged freeway and is within easy access of...well nothing.

Also the idea the SGV has to fight L.A for scant resources is so ridiculous. Our whole area operates as a region - always has - always will. The Gold Line had to fight for funding because its ridership projections are much smaller than other more deserving lines like the Westside subway and expo lines.

So, this is what San Gabriel/Industry proponents are hanging their hats, the plethora of "ti*ty bars." CLASSY!!

Maybe the City should install money changers in the temples....

So Roski's corruption cash comes due, in the form of this editorial?

The idea that people in the OC have such "disdain" for Los Angeles that they won't drive to Downtown for a game is ridiculous. People from Orange County drive to Staples Center all the time to Laker games. Downtown L.A. next to Staples is the best place for a stadium. The only advantage I see with the Industry/Roski location is that there would be room for tailgating. Then again football fans in L.A. aren't like the fans in the midwest. Put it next to Staples.

The one comment about too many Asians in the SGV and therefore that would hurt an NFL team in Industry I agree with, but Asians don't like football, but some like baseball and I see many Asians at Laker games.

The convenience of a stadium in L.A. is sweet, personally speaking. But these new players want it to be a build a DOMED stadium??? In L.A.?! I say no to that. That alone means increased building costs.

While I feel badly for all the work Roski has already put in, I have to agree that the Downtown location would be far superior to the City of Industry.

Actually there are a number of like establishments in D'Town LA.

But let's look at NFL demographics for a second.
Gender:
Men=49.0%
Women=52.0%

Age:
18-24=13%
25-34=18.0%
35-44=20.0%
45-54=19.0%
55-64=14.0%
65+= 17.0%

Nearly 70% are above he age of 35.

Income:
50K-$75K=19.0%
$75K-$100K=14.0%
$100K-$150K= 10.0%
$150K+= 6.0%

Nearly 50% of NFL fans make over 50K a year.

But we football fans appreciate your stereotypes. We know that stupid people need them to understand other people.

My location preference is for downtown LA. A new NFL stadium, something LA has never had, at LA Live would be incredible. Regardless of location, I simply want the NFL back here. Sorry LA haters.

Looks like someone doesn't know the truth behind the Rams'(and Raiders') departure.

As for Roski's secret scheme to make money, isn't it always about that? Roski isn't doing this for his health. Please stay in Michigan.
