    I was born in Corona, Ca when my dad was stationed @ March Air Force Base.

    I believe on a good day I am roughly 200 miles from Diamond Bar.

    Close enough to be affected by a black-out, no doubt.

      I'm assuming that you're hoping that the Rams will be one of the
      NFL teams to come to the stadium if it gets built. I've heard that the Chargers
      would also be one of the teams interested since they can't come to
      any kind of agreement for the city of S.D. building a new stadium for them. By the way where is Arroyo Grande located.

        Arroyo Grande is almost exactly 1/2 way between L.A. and San Fran off the 101. Next to Pismo Beach and Oceano (which is where the Dune Buggies come to play). I am about 10 miles closer to Diablo Canton Nuclear power plant than am to Vandenberg Air Force Base. and about 15-20 Miles South of San Luis Obispo. That help at all? >8)

        I don't expect the Rams to come back to CA any time soon, and I could not afford to go very often even if they did. :|

          Nice to know that you're and Ram and Dodger fan than a *****whiner and G-aints fan since you're up in that area. My drive would be about 40 min. if they end up in the City of Industry. Heard already that the city signed a 20 million deal with Diamond Bar in which they would annually get @ $700,000 for street improvements, park renovations etc. Also the neighboring city of Walnut City Council voted 3:1 with one abstaining vote to agree on an environmental impact of the building of the Stadium. Have you seen what the Stadium will look like? If not then just type in on the internet Los Angeles Stadium to get an idea of what they are proposing. Definetly will be worth saving up to make the trip Especially if the Rams to come back to So. Cal.

                  Rams Stadium passes $4 Billion
                  by ramsanddodgers
                  This new Los Angeles Rams stadium better be good.

                  We know it will be expensive, to a record level. Sports Business Journal reported that costs for the new stadium in Inglewood have passed $4 billion. You read that right.

                  Stadium costs have gone way up through the years, but no other stadium in the United States has come anywhere close to this. SBJ said the most expensive stadium previous to this was MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, and that cost $1.7 billion. The Raiders’ new stadium in Las Vegas is expected to cost more than $2 billion. That’s still less than half of what the Rams stadium, which will also be used by the Los Angeles Chargers, will cost. Cost keeps rising

                  When Rams owner Stan Kroenke first got approval to move his team from St. Louis to Los Angeles, his proposed stadium was slated to cost $2.3 billion, SBJ said. That would have been the most expensive stadium in U.S. sports. About $2 billion has been added onto the cost since then.

                  In March, the Los Angeles Times reported the price had crept to about $3 billion. Sports Business Journal said the price is now an estimated $4.25 billion. SBJ cited sources that were involved in a bank meeting on May 4 to arrange a $2.25 billion loan. What is costing so much?

                  The stadium project always had big expectations. It was designed to be an enormous complex, designed to be an entertainment district as well as host big events like Super Bowls.

                  The extra costs, in part, come from ensuring the stadium can withstand an earthquake, SBJ reported. There have also been other costs like access roads and utilities that are adding to the price tag.

                  That $4.25 billion figure doesn’t even include the entire complex. It does include a 6,000-seat amphitheater, SBJ said, but not retail space and commercial development or a new NFL Network headquarters. When all that is included, the total project cost could exceed $5 billion, Sports Business Journal said. Kroenke has $1.6 billion invested

                  SBJ broke down the investment in the stadium as $2.25 billion for various banks, $1.6 billion for Kroenke and $400 million from the NFL’s stadium financing fund. The Chargers will also pay off a portion of the debt costs, SBJ said.

                  Kroenke’s investment “is unprecedented,” a banker told Sports Business Journal.

                  SBJ explained how the Rams will pay down the debt — they’ll use the bank credit as construction advances, and use personal seat license fees to pay down the debt — but SBJ said the interest alone could be more than $50 million a year.

                  The stadium’s opening was already delayed a year due to weather issues. Once the stadium does open in 2020, it will be among the best stadiums in all of sports, and there’s a good chance it will top that list. But until that first Rams game in the new park, Kroenke is probably hoping another billion or so isn’t added onto the price tag.

                  Latest L.A. proposal for NFL stadium has a roof ..
                  by MauiRam
                  By Sam Farmer
                  April 16, 2010 | 9:20 p.m.

                  The latest concept for an NFL stadium in downtown Los Angeles — a $1-billion venue next to Staples Center — has, The Times has learned, something none of its scuttled predecessors had.

                  A ceiling.

                  Although that might seem like a minor distinction, proponents of that project say that a retractable roof would greatly enhance the versatility of the building, making it ideal for major sporting events such as the Final Four, championship title fights, and all sorts of national conventions.

                  Influential businessmen Casey Wasserman and Tim Leiweke are investigating the possibility of developing a privately financed stadium where the convention center's West Hall sits. That would serve as the cornerstone of AEG's sprawling sports and entertainment district, a so-called campus that already includes Staples Center, LA Live, and a just-constructed 1,000-room hotel.

                  Wasserman approached Leiweke with the idea last October, touting the site as the most viable and interesting solution for a region that has struggled to find both.

                  "This is just thinking right now," said Leiweke, AEG's president and chief executive. "It's saying, ‘If we're going to invest this kind of time and money anyway — even if it doesn't cost taxpayers a dollar — shouldn't we think about the other uses if we had a roof to cover it?'"

                  The vision is that the complex would not only be the quintessential site for Super Bowls but also could play host to the Pro Bowl; the NFL draft (alternating years with New York); the scouting combine (alternating years with Indianapolis); and the finals of the World Cup in 2022. The NFL has made it clear that any new stadium in Southern California should be able to accommodate two teams, leaving open the possibility that the primary tenant could one day share the venue.

                  The backers believe L.A. would be the ideal spot for virtually every major convention, which could use the stadium along with supplemental space added to replace the West Hall (roughly 14 acres). That's sufficient space to fit the structure of any current NFL stadium.

                  "This is the final piece to the downtown puzzle," said Wasserman, founder and chief executive of Wasserman Media Group. "It's the only chance for the city to benefit from the economic power of a stadium of this caliber."

                  Backers say a stadium of this magnitude would have unparalleled revenue streams from a variety of sources, among them naming rights, suites, Super Bowls and seat licenses that would pay for the facility in similar fashion to its neighboring Staples Center.

                  Buying a team would cost about $1 billion more, but that wouldn't necessarily be required if a franchise relocated with the same owner.

                  The city owns the convention center, and the support of the mayor...

                  Would The Rams Pay For Their Own Stadium?
                  by RamBill
                  (KPLR)– What’s next for the Rams? The city says it will reject an arbitrator’s ruling in favor of the Rams about upgrading the dome.

                  So the next step is likely talks over a new stadium. But since taxpayer funding is unlikely would the Rams be willing to stay if they have to pay for their own stadium?

                  The arbitrators ruled that it would take $700 million in taxpayer-funded changes to make the dome among the NFL’s top stadiums. So would that mean talks over a new Rams stadium? If so, where would it be? And who would pay for it? Or might the Rams head back to Los Angeles in 2015?

                  It's slow season for the NFL so I figured I'd post this. How did I not notice this before?!

                  I ran across an aerial photograph of the building of the new stadium that was taken 4 days ago. Check it out...






                  So, does anybody else notice how that looks like the Rams logo?! Perfect for all the planes (and visiting fans) coming in on a flight to LAX to see...


                  At first I thought, if this is what they're doing , why didn't they promote it in their unveiling of the stadium, and then I remembered the Raiders and Chargers! LOL Poor Chargers... they'll literally be playing in a stadium designed in the shape of the Rams logo.

                  What do you guys think.... am I seeing things?...
