Los Angeles…that’s where the NFL wants to be

Attention, San Antonio football fans: abandon any and all hope you may have of your city getting an NFL team. The Alamodome’s way too small, and it would cost hundreds of millions to build an NFL-regulation stadium. If any city will get an expansion team or a relocated NFL team, it’ll be our nation’s second-largest city and second-largest television and radio market: Los Angeles.

I get this feeling that eventually a single football stadium might be build somewhere in the L.A. region (perhaps Anaheim) and serve as home to an AFC and NFC team. One team is home one week and the team’s home the next week—sort of like how the New York Giants and Jets share Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.’s Meadowlands.

I suspect that these cities—all of which are trying to get new stadiums—are candidates to relocate to Los Angeles: Oakland, San Diego, New Orleans and Minnesota.
