Mum had been the word around NFL circles regarding a team's potential move to Los Angeles after commissioner Roger Goodell put the kibosh on any plan for 2015. It appears, however, that St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke isn't wasting any time making big plans for the following season. 

 

Officials at Stockbridge Capital Group, which owns a 238-acre piece of land in Hollywood Park, told Sam Farmer and Roger Vincent of the Los Angeles Times they are currently planning to build a stadium that will bring the NFL back to Los Angeles.

My family had season tickets.  Four seats front row endzone by the Rams band.  I would be so down to get tickets again.  Back in the 90s those things went for 20 bucks each.  They need to get Jim Everett and Henry Ellard on the team.

I'm happy.

 

I finally have a home town football team. I was an Eagles fan growing up but it wasn't the same.

 

Go rams!

Nope, those plans didn't fly in the voting process. 

 

The Chargers get 1 year to decide if they want to join the Rams in their stadium (and become partners in it). If they turn it down the Raiders get 1 year to decide after.

I don't like the idea of this stadium being indoor with a roof. Even if it's see through. It does look pretty bad ass. I wonder who will win naming rights. I wonder what the uniforms will look like.

^I saw a funny Reddit post about how since we're getting the Rams and Chargers that Dodge would be stupid to not try to name the stadium.

 

Pretty clever lol

I've always wanted harmony in naming rights.

The C&H Sugar Bowl, the FTD Rose Bowl.

I like the Dodge connection.

 

I'm OK with the indoor stadium, but it'd be best if it's real grass.

 

So glad to have the Rams back. and F the Chargers, I wish they'd stay.

They'll probably give it a new coat of paint when we get the new stadium.

 

I hope anyways.
