Reports on ESPN are that they are trying to pull:

Jax Jags, Minnesota Vikes, Buffalo Bills, or Oakland Raiders.

My bet is Jags leave Fla. They have poor attendance, and most people down there root for either Tampa or Miami anyways. Or Atlanta and New Orleans for that matter.

Actualy most of us root for the Gators :lol: Ya'll can have the Jags and have fun with that no fun league:D

Lots of room in The Valley, put it up over the hill in Palmdale. ;)
It's still LA county.
They could put it near that big airport they've been thinking about building for years.
People in LA don't mind driving.
(or is that sitting in cars on strips of concrete?)


If you were to build it in Palmdale, you would need a dome! Kick the ball with the wind behind you and it might just land somewhere in Pasadena.

Palmdale is the only place that I have ever lived where I was passed by a tumbleweed on the highway!

From the L.A. Times:
Voters in the city of Industry approved the selling of $500 million in bonds for infrastructure improvements,including some that would support a planned $800 million NFL stadium.
The preliminary vote count was 60 to 1.

As stated before, I'd love to see an LA football team, but they need to put the stadium somewhere you can get to by car that won't cause a major traffic tieup every weekend.

Hard to believe it has been 15 years since the NFL has had a team in Los Angeles.

Guess I'll be staying off the 60 freeway during football season. This is exactly what LA traffic needs...

From nfl.com:
The city of Diamond Bar drops its lawsuit/objections to the stadium in exchange for more than $21 million.
The settlement includes:
$20 million to deal with increased traffic from the stadium
$1 million for a middle school athletic field

Diamond Bar would also get at least $700,000/year from Industry for "community facilities" for as long as the stadium is in operation.

Another nearby city,Walnut,appears to be "next in line" with a lawsuit filed last month to stop the stadium's construction.

Thanks for the update. :)

It looks like the stadium is slowly but surely becoming a reality for the L.A. area.
