New NFL Team in LA by 2008? ... Hope so

Postby ibeckhami » Mon Aug 23, 2004 6:50 pm

They have a new $400 Million plus plan to house a new team. They're thinking of renovating the Rose Bowl with that money. The NFL commisioner will decide whether or not he wants a new NFL team in LA by Spring.

Here's the article:

Since Red Hates it here maybe, but the games are packed every gameday.
Keep it lit.

... i found this article under the vikings' page on Espn.com

and Tiki is right.. Red hates it there.

BUT, the vikings have just started their new stadium drive in minnesota which should be complete by 2008...

so, i'm not sure.

If the Vikings come to LA, it would be great. Another home team. I'll be able to go to most of their games. ;-D

They are also considering Anaheim.

I thought the NFL was planning to expand again around 2008.

when you say "new" team, do you mean expansion or just anther team moving to LA?
mayb the cardinals. they have a lot of empty seats

quoting myself here, imagine if it was the cards. youd have the cards, 49ers and chargers and raiders in one state. now there is some powerhouse action.

Both can happen at this point. But an expansion is unlikely. It'll probably just be a NFL team for example the vikes or colts or something moving here...
