    The NFL isn't expanding beyond 32 anytime soon.

    And I'd hesitate to say an expansion team would be better than a transplant anyway.

    The Houston Texans were LA's team. The NFL pretty much handed it to Los Angeles. However, the Coliseum Commission blocked all stadium building from private builders in the city of LA. Also, the taxpayers weren't going to pay for a new stadium either.

    The NFL did not want to put a new team in a crappy facility known as the Coliseum. Even a newly refurbished Coliseum.

    The brain trust in LA City Council has killed everything within 90001-90099. AEG would have built one 2001, where the Nokia Theater is, but TL & Wasserman didn't have the balls to stand up to them when they threatened with lawsuits. The NFL was really interested and would have put a team there as soon as it was built.

    There is a whole different argument that the NFL used LA to drive the franchise price up in Houston. I happen to believe that one more

    Really? You dont think a brand new team with local LA ownership would be better then a team thats already has a proven track record of failure? Id like to see the Cardinals in LA about as much as Id like to see the Kings move to Boise.

    No one(not the LGK poster)wants The Cardinals. What about a team like the Jags?

    The Cardinals are actually a very good young team (8-8 last year) with a young QB and a pair of stud WRs. Aside from having to root for Matt Leinart, I'd take the Cards in a second. But that's a moot point because they just got a new stadium.

    And again, considering the situation an expansion team just isn't realistic.

    Money Talks....AEG/Roski have a ton of pull. If the NFL wants a new team theyll get a new team.

    KJ- As much as Id like to see us get a new team the Jags or the Vikes wouldnt be half bad. The Chargers makes a lot of sense as well.

    I think that was my exact point. The NFL doesn't want a new team. 33 teams doesn't make sense, both from a divisional breakdown standpoint as well as simple logistics. Bye weeks starting in Week 1? No way.
