    Anyway, Carol Rosenbloom was the one behind taking the team out of Los Angeles "Proper" and the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The City of Los Angeles, much like the City of Anaheim would only do so much to keep the team, plus with Rozelle's blackout rule and the 100k seating capacity, it was hard to sell out the Coliseum. The team announced the move in 1978, he died in 1979. She really was doing what he was going to do anyway. Plus, I am sure there was money it. I am not sure on this, but I believe the team was the only business they were in. So to me the true driving force for Georgia's decision to move the team was the money she was paid to do so. I thought it was 250 million, but that's what it cost to build the Ed. If anyone knows how much she was paid, I would love to know. I did however find an interesting article on all of the players involved in the move and it jogged a lot of old, angry, memories...enjoy!

    No worries bro, I was just trying to clarify. I always get yelled at by the wife for speaking in caveman sentences and leaving out important points, so that was just a knee jerk word selection. And not just for you, there are others that would point it out.
