    It's no longer speculating.......

    About whether or not a Stadium will be built in L.A. So now it's just a matter of when and if the Rams are moving to L.A.

    L.A. stadium environmental bill signed
    Comment Email Print Share
    Associated Press
    INDUSTRY, Calif. -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said Thursday he had signed a bill allowing the construction of a 75,000-seat stadium that developers hope will lure an NFL team back to the Los Angeles area.

    Schwarzenegger said he signed the environmental exemption bill last week but saved the announcement for a press conference in Industry, where the stadium would be built about 15 miles east of Los Angeles.

    The bill would nullify a lawsuit filed by residents in nearby Walnut over the project's environmental impact.

    Schwarzenegger called the lawsuit frivolous as he addressed a crowd of union members wearing hardhats. Across the street, a dozen protesters held signs saying "No Stadium."

    "This is the best kind of action state government can create -- action that cuts red tape, generates jobs, is environmentally friendly and brings a continued economic boost to California," Schwarzenegger said.

    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 *****.

    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.

    Schwarzenegger said the stadium would generate more than 18,000 jobs.

    Majestic guaranteed parking lot attendants and concession stand workers would be paid middle-class wages, said Maria Elena Durazo, head of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor.

    "This is true economic development," Durazo said. "It's going to benefit everyone in our community."

    I would love for the Rams to come back to Los Angeles, and I hope with all that's in me that we don't get the Raiders. Here's the interesting thing, depending on which team makes the move, there might be a shift in Football Divisions. The best solution is to have the Rams move to L.A. to be a true NFC West Team, right now they have a harder schedule than they should because of having to travel to Arizona, California, and Washington. The move makes since because then they wouldn't have to travel far to play their division foes. But say if a team like Jacksonville, Buffalo, or Minnesota made the move, you would have to do some shifting. Of course you have the Chargers, Raiders, and Frisco, but I doubt that the NFL would want to loose it's strong presence in the Bay area, moving either team would weaken their presence, In my honest opinion. The only teams that make sense are the Chargers and Rams. Some of you might say well The Chargers make most since out of all, but in actuality, you weaken the Market in San Diego, because you would undoubtly lose a major part of you fan base in San Diego, and there aren't a lot of Charger fans in L.A. So to me the Rams make the most sense, but hey don't flame me, I'm just a L.A. guy who wants his team back. Not to mention the NFL would really be able to market Steven Jackson, because of the market.

    Might be sooner if you recall they said they could have the Stadium done within a couple of years, and they would lease the Rose Bowl, in the meantime. So we actually could have a team in L.A. as soon as next year.

    I'd love to go back to LA but I have a hunch the Jags are going to get it, but who knows.


    Always and Forever a fan of the St. Louis Rams

    Re: It's no longer speculating.......

    What would really be cool would be the Jags moving to LA. After all, it was the league selecting Jax instead of St Louis, for a franchise that St Louis was more ready for, that caused Georgia to move the RAMS to St Louis. Even to this day (as bad as the RAMS have been lately), St Louis still supports the RAMS better than Jax supports the Jags. As far as I am concerned, they always have. So the team that the league withheld from St Louis moving to LA would be full circle.

    Maybe even a move to LA, St Louis releases the RAMS name to LA, and starts using the Stallions name that they would have used if they weren't blocked from receiving the franchise team in 1995.

    I think they're also building a stadium in Dubai.

    The Rams aren't moving there either.

    it depends on what happens with ownership over that time. they very well could be going back to la, if the jags don't beat them to it.
