  • Some Random Internet Guy: L.A is in the mix

    My source out in los angeles has confirmed that Ed Roski jr is one of the groups bidding on the Rams and he has aeg money behind him. The Nfl would not stop the move to los angeles because that is where Rams came from. John shaw is working on the sale from his home in los angeles. If they return to los angeles they will have got what they wanted the whole time a new staduim in L.A.

      1) Forgive my skepticism about an anonymous source of an anonymous internet poster.

      2) John Shaw doesn't own the team and resigned as team president. Why would he be working on the sale?

      3) Whether the league would allow the move or not is purely speculation...unless you also happen to have a source in the commissioner's office.

              To all ST Louis Rams Fans. Fact there will be a NFL studio built in L.A. Fact it has been approved and they will start building it withing the next month or so. Fact The Rams are for sale, Fact anyone person or entity can buy the team. Fact the NFL wants a team in L.A. So the likely hood of the Rams moving back to L.A. is very real. I'd say the chance of the Rams coming to L.A. is 70/30. Fact the current owner lives in L.A. and just because he says he wants the team to stay in St Louis, means nothing. The team is there right now and they need to be profitable. What do you think he's gonna say yeah we wanna move, and have the fans stop coming? Trust me he'll sell to whomever pays the most money.

              Infact I doubt we find out who the buyers are until after this season, they wanna keep the fans in the seats. You tell yourself the Rams are staying all you want, all I'll say is enjoy them while you have them. Cause they might not be there next year.

              You can tell yourself they still have a lease, but as per their lease the dome has to stay within the top 10 percent of the current NFL stadiums, the dome is in the bottom 10 percent. So they can break the lease anytime they want to. What has kept them from breaking it is there has been no where for them to go, UNTIL NOW.

              You can call this trolling or whatever you wanna call it, but from what I can see is the L.A. Ram fans have been cool and some of the the ST Louis fans have been jerks everytime there's been speculation about the team moving. Well it's no longer speculation, so deal with it.

              Wether or not it happens is altogether another story but right now it's a very real possibility.

                For almost fourteen years now, the closest Los Angeles has been to an NFL team has been the USC Trojans. Well, that is about to change.

                The Jacksonville Jaguars will be moving to Los Angeles, and it could happen as soon as next season. With attendance down, the Jags have been trying to gain more support from their fans. They were even thinking about playing some games in Orlando.

                My source tells me that the decision has already been made, but the front office is not announcing it, in an effort to not disrupt support from the fans in Jacksonville. At this point, there has been no decision as to whether or not the team's name will remain the "Jaguars."

                The team will play at the Los Angeles Coliseum for two to three years, before ultimately moving to a stadium that will be built in the City of Industry. Here is a link to view the stadium that will be built:Los Angeles Stadium

                I have also learned, that there is a large possibility that the St. Louis Rams could relocate back to Los Angeles. This may come as no shock, as the team is up for sale; new ownership may seek more opportunities by moving the team back to L.A.

                The NFL will be back in Los Angeles soon enough

                  Name your terms, I'll take that bet.

                  I understand our brethren from LA have been geographically distanced from the team for a while now, that sucks; I wouldn't want to deal with that. But I really hope you guys aren't putting all your eggs in this basket. Because when the team does not move back, for some, it's going to be like losing them all over again. I really don't want that for you guys.

                    Yes, those are all facts.

                    Fact anyone person or entity can buy the team.
                    That is not a fact. Just ask what's his name... you know... the radio guy.

                    So the likely hood of the Rams moving back to L.A. is very real.
                    That does NOT follow any of the facts you recited. In FACT, the Rams are separate and apart from any of the facts you recited.

                    I'd say the chance of the Rams coming to L.A. is 70/30. .
                    So what? Just because you SAY it does not make it so.

                    My OPINION, by the way, is that it is very UNLIKELY that the Rams will move back to Los Angeles. If any team is going to move there, the most likely candidate is Jacksonville. But, of course, that's just my OPINION.

                    I didn't hear it from some unnamed inside source.

                      If you read the "article" (I use the term loosly) it says that Jacksonville are the ones heading to LA. It touches on the possibility that the Rams are up for sale and that in the future they may be a candidate ...... NOTHING NEW THERE THEN.

                      sigh

                        Don't you know that if you post a thread like this, someone from Mo. will ask that it be removed and relocated so that it doesn't "offend" them? ;)

                        I seriously doubt the Rams will return to LA. Unfortunately, if they continue to play football the way they are, I doubt there will be many in LA that will want them to return. This team is beginning to look a lot like the team that left LA many years ago. The name "Frontiere" or any family member of Georgia's will have to no longer be associated with this franchise for them to be welcomed back by many old fans.

                        My money's still on the Jaguars or Chargers as having a better chance of coming here.

                          it really depends on what happens with the ownership situation..if a new owner decides to push towards moving to la, it will probably happen. if a new owner that prefers st louis comes, or they end up not selling, well, it won't happen. talking about probability is premature at this point.

                              AS a L.A. football fan I've been longing for a team, I remember hearing the news that they were moving to St Louis from Jerome Bettis at a club, when they played in L.A. My jaw dropped, I would love to have my dhildhood team back in L.A. winning or not, but whatever team comes to L.A. I'll be rooting the home team. The Rams will always have a place in my heart, but I gotta go with the home team. My fingers are crossed that they come back.:helmet:

                                More NFL, the Rams and Los Angeles
                                by RAMFANRAIDERHATER
                                This past Wednesday, I was tuned into one of my usual local sports radio shows (KFI 830) as I was driving home and they had John Semcken on as a guest. John Sencken is, for those that do not know, the Majestic Realty Co. partner managing the NFL stadium project with Ed Roski. Majestic Realty Co. is responsible for the Staples Center in which the Lakers, Kings and Clippers play in downtown LA. The proposed NFL stadium site is about 30 minutes east of LA in the City of Industry.

                                I don't have a written copy of the converstation, but some of the stuff I heard was very interesting, and encouraging. I wanted to share some of the things I heard with those that care about NFL football in LA.

                                First of all, Roski and Sencken are "100%" sure that this will happen. In fact, a bond passed recently almost unanimously, and more recently, environmental issues which were thought to be a major hurdle have been approved and cleared. Now, it's just getting an NFL team to commit to coming to LA. This is where it gets interesting.

                                When asked who he thought might be interested, John stated that, although he couldn't divulge all the details about any talks with teams, the teams that the media has thrown around recently are possible candidates, including: Rams, Raiders, Whiners, Chargers, Jaguars, Bills, Vikings and Saints. What really caught my ear was when a question was posed about what teams were really most likely to move, rather than just posturing and using the LA move for their own stadium deal. Semcken said that a team that is currently up for sale as being a "better candidate", but only two teams were currently "up for sale".

                                The Jaquars and the Rams.

                                I find it interesting that a guy with that profile would say that if it were not true.

                                When asked when this would happen, Semcken said that he believes that an NFL team will be here as early as the 2010 season, playing that season and the 2011 season in either the Rose Bowl or the LA Coliseum until Roski's stadium is completed in 2012.

                                According to Semcken, the NFL really wants an NFL team back in LA, and this proposal (unlike other proposals in the past) is solid and back financially and they are definitely interested and listening. They expressed the need to get more Superbowls back in Los Angeles, because the revenue in LA and Miami are still, by far, the most profitable.

                                This interview, along with other articles about Roski and teams like the Rams and Chargers, that are floating around here make me finally really believe that the NFL will be back in LA very soon.

                                ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
                                06/07/2009

                                Eli Broad, Michael Ovitz, Ron Burkle, Ed Roski and more. The names mean little or nothing to St. Louisans. But they were among the big money men, the movers and shakers, who came and went in Southern California all determined to bring pro football back to the Los Angeles area. Eventually, they were toppled like so many tin soldiers.

                                Along the way, there have been proposed stadiums and stadium sites with glamorous pasts and glitzy names from the Rose Bowl to the Coliseum, to Hollywood Park, to Chavez Ravine. And some not so glitzy from the gravel pits in Irwindale to the former toxic waste dump in Carson, to the city of Industry.

                                Amazingly, 14 years have passed since the Rams and Raiders left Los Angeles in 1995.

                                Amazingly, the nation's second-largest market has gone twice as long without a National Football League franchise as St. Louis which went seven seasons without a team from 1988 to 1995 between Bill Bidwill's Cardinals and Georgia Frontiere's Rams.

                                Despite Roski's current effort to build a stadium in tiny Industry (pop. 800), the prospect of getting an NFL team back in the LA area seems as remote as ever. The reasons remain unchanged, with lack of unified political leadership and absolutely zero appetite for any public taxpayer support heading the list.

                                Leigh Steinberg, the one-time super agent who co-chaired a Save the Rams group in the early 1990s that tried to keep the team in Anaheim, hates to say I told you so, but ...

                                "I recall saying at the time that if we lost the Rams, we would lose the Raiders," Steinberg told the Post-Dispatch on Friday. "And it would be 20 years, if ever, before we got an NFL team back in Southern California. And people said, 'Oh no, no, you're wrong. The NFL has to have a team back in the nation's second-largest market. The television contract would demand it.'"

                                But the television ratings for the NFL have been just fine, thank you, without a franchise in LA. In fact, each new television contract has been more lucrative than its predecessor. As the years roll by, the NFL is doing fine without LA. And LA doesn't seem to miss the NFL.

                                "Here we are (in 2009)," Steinberg said. "And we're not one step closer to having a team. In some ways we're further away."

                                Just don't tell that to the angst-ridden gridiron fans of St. Louis. Spurned once by Bidwill's Big Red, they're wondering if lightning will strike twice. With the Rams' franchise now up for sale, and with lease issues looming at the Edward Jones Dome, could the Rams somehow find their way back to Los Angeles?

                                "It would kind of be poetic to have the Rams go back to Los Angeles, but a billion dollars for a stadium isn't poetry," said Charlotte...

                                by Haste
                                It seems alot of people are divided, but one of the biggest issues the Rams have had over the last 2 decades are penalties and ref's bias leaned toward the opposing teams.


                                With moving to LA, do you think Goodell tells the refs to help them out slightly or on close calls throughout the upcoming season?


                                It would also be interesting if Stan starts talking in-front of the media now that he is in 'his town'
