As a Brit who only moved here in 2001, Ive never really understood why the 2nd biggest city doesnt have a permenant NFL team. I read a lot about LA doesnt deserve one etc. I know the Raider & Rams have both been and moved, but never understood why.
is there any good reading material on this subject. i know I could just Google, but hey I think you guys are smarter than google
OK, this is from someone who has lived in L.A. and witnessed this dilemma first hand. Forget Google. Here is your research project:
On the first two weekends of the NFL Season, fly to CA and go to Redondo Beach or Hermosa Beach and just wander around for a while. Soak in the whole scene, and enjoy the scenery (see sample #1). Now, in Week 3, fly to Pittsburgh and go to a Steelers game and enjoy the scenery. (see samples #2 and #3).
You will quickly see why very few in L.A. care about going to an NFL game when they have so many other distractions when compared to other cities where football rules. Sample Scene #1 (L.A.)Sample Scenes #2 and #3 (Pittsburgh, and many other NFL cities)
