    Default Roski Buildin Stadium in City of Industry

    Actually it is Diamond Bar. It is approximately 7 minutes from my house.

    It is where the 57/60 meet off of Grand Ave.

    Private money, and teams to be considering moves are Jaguars, Saints, Vikings, Rams, Raiders and Chargers.

    Owners meeting on May 19th will determine whether the project is a go.

    Technically, it is the City of Industry. But us native Walnuts & Diamond Barians remember it as the rolling hills of Walnut.

    I grew up in Walnut. My parents still live there. The wife & I have a house in Diamond Bar.

    I remember when Grand Ave ended at Valley Blvd.

    I will take the Jags, Saints, Vikings or Chargers.

    The Rams and Raiders can suck my balls.

    Of all of those teams I would want the Jags the most.

    Cracks me up the Rams are mentioned....but is there a link to them moving?

    I made this prediction a couple of years ago....will be funny to see it in print.

    Personally, the league should give us a brand new franchise. Their paying billions into the stadium-gives us a fresh start with a team with no baggage.

    I'm with Hipcheck as far as getting a brand new team. Having grown up in the Chicago area, it would be really hard for me to root for the Vikings if they came here. Just give us a brand new team. No existing team please.

    When has a new franchise ever been started in Los Angeles by any of the three major sports and both the Ducks and Angels do not count considering they play in Anaheim (Not in Los Angeles County) even though the Angels started as the Los Angeles Angels and shared Dodger Stadium the first couple of years until their Anaheim home could be built and became the California Angels? The only team was the Kings in 1967.

    Lakers were imported from Detroit (the Gems of the NBL; '46-'47) and passing through Minneapolis (became the Lakers of the BAA; '47-'60).
    Clippers were imported from Buffalo (the Braves of the NBA; '70-'78) and passing through San Diego (became the Clippers of the NBA; '78-'84).
    Dodgers were imported from Brooklyn (as early as the 1850's but probably officially 1883-1957).
    Rams were imported from Cleveland (of the AFL; '36-37 then the NFL; '37-'45)
    Raiders were imported from purgatory.

    Youre making my point for me. When it comes to the NFL which is really the cream of the crop when it comes to pro-sports; doesnt the LA Area deserve their own team as opposed to some transplant?

    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.
