    Default Football stadium in Los Angeles

    Question: Do you know where you’d do it?

    LEIWEKE: “I think part of that is going to involve what’s going on with an NFL stadium in the marketplace, and I think that’s going to get sorted through here in the next 365 days. Some would say the Rose Bowl and some would say the Coliseum. We’ve talked to both. They’re aware that we’re sniffing on it, but I also have to throw out the possibility that maybe what we want to do is like what Jerry Jones has done with Cowboy Stadium. It would be fantastic to do that as part of the first year of a new NFL stadium. I think, whether it be Dodger Stadium, Carson, City of Industry or here, we’re going to see some progress on a football team and a football stadium in the near future.’’

    I don't know where the interview was held, but I'm assuming it was at Staples Center in Downtown L.A.

    If you guys remember, AEG wanted to build a stadium in downtown L.A. around 2001.

    In addition, TJ Simers, for the second time, wrote the possibility of the Rams coming back to Los Angeles.

    You stay the hell away from Dodger Stadium.

    The space in El Segundo is gone (office parks and city park).

    A downtown stadium was definitely a possibility back around 2001. The CRA was directed to look into its feasibility and there were enough City & CRA owned parcels and adequate CRA funding to purchase the majority of land needed. The rest to be eminent domained.

    That ship has sailed though as the land and money are no longer at the CRA's disposal for the most part. I still don't believe anything the NFL says regarding football in LA. I'll have to see groundbreaking before I begin to believe.

    City of Industry is definitely not getting any support from NFL, NFL owners, or anyone really.
    People want the stadium to be in/around downtown L.A. and Dodger Stadium is the only land available.

    NFL's been hoping someone would build a stadium in Dodger Stadium since the Raiders left in 1995 but L.A. City Officials and other clowns that supported Coliseum didn't let that happen otherwise we'd already have a team here and Peter O'Malley would still be the owner of the Dodgers.

    I agree. Either Dodger Stadium or Downtown L.A.
