Let the talk about football in Los Angeles begin all over again. With the offseason just a few days away and with the annual state of the NFL announcement coming from the commissioner tomorrow, news about the St. Louis Rams owner purchasing over 60 acres of land in Los Angeles has been revealed. Owner Stan Kroenke has purchased some land between Hollywood Park and the Forum that could be possibly used for a NFL Stadium. The land might not be large enough for a stadium, but there is a possibility that Kroenke can get some of the land from Hollywood Park.
The NFL has not been in Los Angeles since 1994, but talk about bringing a franchise back to Los Angeles is always a topic of discussion. The Rams lease is on a year-to-year basis after the 2014 season and the possibility to move the franchise back to Southern California is there.
There are already a couple of stadium proposals for areas around the city of Los Angeles. One is next to Staples Center and the other one is in the City of Industry, but there is no team to move in.
If the Rams were to move, they will not reveal anything about a move until the last possible second. If they were to make some sort of announcement now, then they could lose out on a lot of money in the coming season. Attendance could go down in St. Louis during that lame duck year. Who wants to watch a team that is on their way out of the city?
The talk of football in Los Angeles is starting up again. Will the Rams be the team (one of the teams) to move to Los Angeles?
