Arnold approves L.A. stadium...
 
...good news is, the Saints are not being targeted... thank you Superdome!

California governor approves waiver allowing construction of 75,000-seat stadium to lure NFL team to Los Angeles - ESPN

Quote:

Majestic Realty Co. is heading the stadium project after helping develop Staples Center, the downtown Los Angeles home of the NBA's Lakers and Clippers and the NHL's Kings.
Majestic has targeted seven teams as candidates to move to the Los Angeles area: the Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings, St. Louis Rams, San Diego Chargers, Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers.
The firm has said the teams are in stadiums that are either too small or can't be updated with luxury box seats or other revenue sources an NFL club needs to thrive.

Move the Rams or Raiders back, the other teams (except the Jags) have too much tradition in their respective cities.

No I think they are looking for a legitimate NFL team.

The Jags would be the most logical team to move. They have never been able to fill their stadium, and for the most part have always fielded decent teams. In any event, I could see possibly a couple teams relocating. We all know Los Angeles will eventually land a team, maybe two, but that would be considered a major long shot at this point. I just hope the NFL doesn't expand, they seem to have the correct formula with 32 teams. Say a team like St. Louis or Minnesota would go to Los Angeles, then a team like the Jags or maybe even the Bills would consider either place. Should be pretty interesting over the next few years...

Have you seen our 5-0 record? That alone makes us legit. :rolleyes:
Edit: I figure you are just kidding.
