    I have a feeling with that epic fail we have seen the last of Brett Farve. He may be the all time leader in TD's but there is a reason why he has the record for INTS to. Also, with the vikings failing so bad it looks like they might have to move. The state is bankrupt. They aren't getting any public money and they are already going to build that stadium in the city of industry. Looks like LA is going to steal another purple and gold Minnesota team, this time their football team the vikings!

    Bring em on! Keep the colors but change the name from "Vikings" to "Kings"

    I can't wait for football in Los Angeles! :icon_banana:

    Realistically, we probably won't get a team until 2011. IF there's NFL in 2011.

    I think Jacksonville is more likely, at least Minn still sells out their stadium. Jacksonville can't even do that. They have NO fan support

    According to the guys building the stadium They are getting 2 teams and the NFL supports that IDEa. We may very well have both an NFC and AFC nfl team arriving in socal in the next couple of yrs!

    DUDe. last I heard they are getting everything ready and about to begin pre construction. He said he has basically a guarantee from roger gooodell that there will be at least 1 if not 2 nfl teams in LA by 2015. So its gonna happen quick. The NFL likes money and this will get them aalot!

    +1! :lol:

    I don't want two teams in LA. It'll be like the Lakers/Clippers all over again. Los Angeles is a one-team city, and the team shouldn't even be named after Los Angeles. "Cailfornia Chargers" or "California Kings" woud be great!

    Or we could go old school:

    I still think that the Chargers will move to LA if no stadium in SD is imminent. Having the Chargers, a sure thing in terms of fan support and ticket sales, in Roski's stadium mitigates the time and effort needed to build a following for a transplanted team from Minnesota or Jacksonville.

    The only other teams that have a built in following already established in LA are the Rams or the Raiders, both possibilities given their stadium situations. But Roski's efforts to lure a team to LA make a lot of sense for the Chargers if SD can't get 'er done...and it doesn't look like they will.

    Roski is buying a team. Chargers aren't for sale. Only the Rams are, and I've heard that the Bucs owners might sell too.
    As far as the possibility of the Chargers going to LA goes... It all depends on which team Roski buys. If he buys the Rams, the Chargers or Raiders might come to LA. If he buys the Jags, we'll be looking at realignment. The Jags will switch to the NFC just so the Chargers or Raiders can move there and lease out the stadium.

    There's just too much planning to do for a team to get here by next season. I'd be pleasantly surprised if they actually pulled it off and just brought ONE team to LA.

    Screw that "California" nonsense.

    You don't name a team after the state when there's 3 other teams in the state. (4 other teams if they get 2)

    Yes, the Rams are for sale. No, the Rams are not coming back to LA. JMO. Yes, the Jags can't stay in Jax. too much longer.

    It will take a minimum of 2 yrs. to get the stadium built. There will not be a team in LA for atleast 4 yrs. :yes:

    How's about renaming the team in LA the Smog's or LA Capped. I have it, the LA Hommies, sounds good and will certainly draw in such a wonderful and friendly city. :icon_tease:

    and that web site has a ton of credibility.

    (credibility) - Credibility refers to the objective and subjective components of the believability of a source or message.
