    The ball on all of this is rolling at an extraordinary rate. I have never heard of a major corporate sponsor ponying up naming rights dough before ground has even been broken on a building - even more astonishing when they don't even know who the main tenant in their building is going to be.

    Lieweekly rhetoric in all of this is somewhat remarkable, saying things like "...the Coliseum is not an option anymore.", after virtually every other proposal for a stadium anywhere in So Cal has been put to a quick halt after the Coliseum Commission says "Nah-uh! Not without our permission and not until we get our cut since we still own the market!" (not that the Commission had ever really done anything to really give themselves a shot in the last 17 years, anyway), and also, "...the NFL is constantly being updated on our progress." I mean, aside from his fumblings when he was at the helm of Kings Command a few years back, he has basically stepped on the toes of Roski's group, has the LA City Council eating out of his hand, and, apparently, has Roger Goddell's ear at all times.

    I would think it's pretty safe to say it's going to happen with AEG.

    Odd that some one who uses the venue for 9-10 days in a year
    is considered the main tenant.
    That's football/NFL!

    really ?

    Seems to me the Lakers get scheduling priority, particularly late in the year when we play at 1 and they play at 7.

    The most popular and profitable still rule the roost

    I thought that we had this conversation in home ice a while ago.

    Anyways, during the 2 Saturday night games (where we played after the slippers) the ice was crazy bunch and wacky. So that may have something to do with it it too.

    I believe the kings are primary tenants because aeg own the arena and the team.

    Anyways the NBA lists the owner and primary tenant of staples center as 'nhl team'.

    Link coming later.

    hmm...tricky indeed. The political side of this makes this whole dream even less attainable. effin A!


    what i wanna know is, what makes them think it will work this time? it didn't work out with the other teams. Yeah, i know i said i'm all for having an LA football team, but only if it actually sticks!
    if they're trying to build this thing with that insane amount of money it BETTER be damn well worth it. especially if they expect it to come out of taxpayers pocket.
