LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) Could the city of Los Angeles be getting at least one NFL team?
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones apparently thinks so: he told reporters at the Cowboys training camp in Oxnard last weekend that the leagues return to L.A. is closer than ever, according to NFL.com.
Jones, a California native, said a move for at least one NFL team could be imminent.
Its more imminent than any time since we havent had a team in Los Angeles, Jones told NFL.com. And yes, this market is a huge market. Its a little bit of a black eye for all of us to have had this many years and not had an NFL team in Los Angeles.
While he wouldnt speculate on any potential teams that may be considering the move, Jones downplayed the possibility of league expansion.
There wont be any expansion, so it will be teams that move, he said.
CBS2 Sports Director Jim Hill reported last month that league sources believe former Dodgers owner Frank McCourts involvement with any deal could hinder efforts to bring back pro football to the city.
Of course, that is if the taxpayers will pony up billions for them.
I PRAY for Jerry Jones to have a Cerebral Anurism.
translation: Six of them may
Maybe Jerry can do us a favor and move the Cowboys there, at least our streets would be safer.
CA native ??? Jerry Jones is from Little Rock, Arkansas.....
So far that hasn’t happened. Hence no team.
I bet it will be the Rams.
He was born in Los Angeles.
“I PRAY for Jerry Jones to have a Cerebral Anurism.”
This. This I tell you.
take our chargers.......please
I thought so, too, but per Wikipedia:
Jones was born in Los Angeles, California. His family moved to North Little Rock, Arkansas when he was an infant.
Why do you think so?
Jones almost bought the Chargers in the 1960s, when they were still in the AFL, but passed it up.
I don’t see St Louis giving them a new stadium.
A move I’d support.
NOLA is a city in-line to follwo my Detroit.
Just...don’t let the Lions relocate until after I’ve passed! I want to spend my retirement years in stadium seats at Ford Field and Comerica Park.
“Of course, that is if the taxpayers will pony up billions for them.”
The taxpayers won’t pay for a new stadium which is why there is no NFL team in the LA/OC area.
If the NFL wants an LA team bad enough, they can pony up the money.
