The Rama-a-Lama Ding Dongs will move to Minni-Apples after the Queenies move out west to La La Land.

One other reason they wont move:
The government there wont help. City of LA keeps recommending the Collessium.
The state of CA has no money and no politicans will use taxpayer money to get a team there right now.
A wide majority of people there don't care.
They are still Raiders fans.

The stadium has been approved and will be located in the City of Industry -- http://www.nfl.com/news/story... -- and will be built once a team commits. Not sure why this wasn't mentioned in this poorly researched article.

NO SPONSORSHIP LOGOS PERIOD!!! Once you aloow them on the practice uni's then its only a matter of time before the greedy owners have a "Papa John" logo on the beloved Bears helmet. MA-DON!!! Stand your ground NFL and but strong.

Interesting article - but missing the biggest reason why NO team will move to L.A., the other owners won't let them. L.A is the location that allows all other owners leverage in their negotiations - if they don't get the funds, they can always move to the 3rd biggest TV market in the U.S, conveniently vacant. Regardless of fees and team history, what market would you prefer - Indianapolis or Los Angeles?

Well, Indiana has a bunch of Hoosiers, and Southern California has smog and earthquakes, but I suppose that's because California got to pick before Indiana did.

It's too bad.

The Rams were the main team since they were in LA more years than The Raiders or even The Chargers which started out there in 1960 for the first 2 or 3 years of their existance.

Send the ViQueens to Cali. With the purple spandex they already wear they would be:
CITY OF INDUSTRY DRAG QUEENS
and all the unemployed fat chicks from Minnecrapolis could show the SoCal women what its like to have multiple rolls being held up by suspenders, and just how great it is to get drunk and eat 7 sauerkraut laden raw bratwurst, go to the game and scream at the top of their lungs for a team that will never win. The Never Winning goes a long way in LA
