Anyone remember that the Raiders, Rams and Chargers had each called Los Angeles home before?

The Rams are the NBA Kings of the NFL. Cleveland-LA-St. Louis-LA.

***and, only the Packers, Cowboys, Bills, Steelers, Broncos, Eagles and 49ers are left from 1960 that have never changed location or team name.

I feel bad for the St. Louis fanbase that welcomed that team, won a Super Bowl and now left in the dust thanks to their new owner being asshole. I also feel bad for the people in LA who enjoyed the earliest form of Redzone and have no desire to have this shitty team come in to fuck up their TV watching. Raiders are always going to be screwed over by the NFL even if Al Davis is dead.

I am not sure what Chargers fan is going to drive to LA to watch their team. I also think the NFL is endangering of having another stadium where no one is at. The worse part is that it houses two teams. While the NFL wants the LA market, I think they are gong to find out that the LA market will do what it always does with football, ignore it.

Been following this story, since it's all the locals have been talking about for a few years now, and the narrative that everybody is saying (greedy owner, city tried so hard, etc) is leaving out the very first thing that happened to Kroenke when he bought the Rams. The people who operate the Dome told him that THEY would be better off if the Rams relocated because they would be able to schedule more events in the Dome and attached convention center.
The first offer for improvements to the Dome, to fulfill the lease requirements, was the document the Chiefs were given by the people that run Arrowhead Stadium, with the Chiefs letterhead still attached.
The city showed no effort to do anything until a year ago, and while Kroeke is an asshole and a greedy businessman, the NFL is to blame as much as the city of St Louis. They want an LA team, and they were going to get an LA team, regardless.
They violated their own relocation terms and conditions, lied to the people negotiating on the city's behalf, and did nothing to try to make anything possible.

The bottom line is, Oakland is right where they want to be, with the NFL paying for part of their new building, whenever and wherever it gets built.

    Oakland is right where they want to be


I'm not sure where that is! Their perennially strange owner was acting like they might play games in some place other than Oakland next year anyway, perhaps traveling the earth as an eternal road team. Obviously, his dad would be suing the league today if Al was still running the team, I don't have great faith in that working out well with his son.

He has no lease, he's not obligated to stay there. Just because they didn't approve his move to LA, doesn't mean he can't move elsewhere. I hear Birmingham is a good place for football, but I'd suspect he's got designs on the AlamoDome.

    Have you ever been to the Oakland Coliseum? They were catching water dripping from the ceilings in the bathrooms in extra-large souvenir cups.

Which is why I keep asking myself, if it didn't work before, what exactly has changed for LA to have a permanent team this time? I mean, I can see sold out crowds for the first couple of seasons. But unless the Rams find a way to become the greatest show on turf once again, I wouldn't be surprised if in 5 to 10 years they aren't even close to relevant in LA as USC, the Dodgers, or the Lakers.

Nothing has changed. Its just that time has passed. There's too much money in the potential of LA franchises for everyone to pass up, even if the interest that would sustain a franchise long term isn't there. Its like a guy, who went out with a hot girl, and then they broke up because the relationship was terrible. Then several years later, he starts thinking about how hot she was, and they hook up and fall back into a relationship, only for him to remember how terrible it was and have to break up with her again.

That said, I'd be fine with an arrangement where the Rams just move back and forth between STL and LA every 20 years. Build a stadium in LA, when that needs to be replaced, have one built in STL and move there. When that needs to be replaced, get one built over the old one in LA, and repeat. We could just call them the STLA Rams and be done with it.

Going by their records over the last decade, the LAST Rams would be more appropriate. Zinger!



George Michael weighed his options. Maeby had chastised him for not taking risks, and what would be a bigger risk than perpetuating a lie about software just to ignite the passions of a woman? Of course it would be a lie, and since Maeby wouldn't know it was a lie, he wouldn't appear to be taking a risk. Perhaps the bigger risk was to tell his father he was lying, that he came up with it because he wanted his father to leave so he could enjoy what remained of his senior year. After all, he wondered, wouldn't that be the course of action taken by an overtly sexual man, a man who owns a pair of matador pants? He had not responded now for 41 seconds according to his unfailing internal clock, and it was time to come clean.

That sounds more like a Raiders thing than a Rams thing (Oak to LA back to Oak and possibly back to LA again). Really, when you think about it, the Raiders remind me of that episode of 'Three's Company' where Jack tries to have two dates at the same time. I could see them playing a season where they bounce back and forth between the two cities, trying to figure out which place is the better one to have a relationship with.
