losing the saints to L.A.
 
The only team currently for sale is the Vikings, and only the Saints, Vikings, and Colts currently are involved in unsettled stadium situations. Ellison's best bet, then, would be to buy one of those teams and move it.



We suspect that this story is a deliberate trial balloon, intended to determine the reaction in Minneapolis, Indianapolis, and New Orleansapolis regarding the prospect of Ellison snatching up the team and putting it into the Los Angeles market. Absent expansion, a current team would have to move in order to get the NFL back to L.A., and the league's most prudent course would be to move a team from the city that ******* the least about the departure.



At this point, the best candidate likely would be the Saints. Hell, Ellison might even get a ticker tape parade down Bourbon Street if he were to buy the team and move it as far out of Looziana as possible.

Why would anyone want to move to LA? They have proved that they wont support a team. I know its a huge market, but the raiders moved and the rams. The Coliseum isnt a good stadium. Its a market that has so many professional teams. Benson isnt moving this team or selling it in my opinion.

Why would anyone move a team to LA knowing you are going to have to move again in 2 or 3 years. I say a team will be sold to an investor from LA and I bet it would be the Vikings.
