    Normally that is true in any other city that winning cures everything Lenny but that is NOT the case in LA at all,to the contrary. Read post 6 of mine how the Raiders always bombed in LA :2up: Even when they were great the Raiders STILL bombed in LA with fan support having half empty stadiums the majority of the time they were in LA.:abgg2q.jpg:

    The year they went to the superbowl,it was common to have half empty stadiums for most their games that year.:biggrin: The year they won the superbowl,the next season for their home opener,the stadium was half empty as always,drawing a mere 46,000 or so for the 100,000 capacity LA coliseum.:lmao::laughing0301:

    September 9, 1984 Green Bay Packers W 28–7 46,269

    the Rams on the other hand,had a SELL OUT cfrowd that same year for their home opener with a crowd of 65,000 or so,keep in mind they were playing in Anaheim in a BASEBALL stadium however they always packed them in at the LA COLISEUM as well same as they have since theur return home.


    ALSO the Chargers entry into the NFL,their first year they played in LA in 1960,the then owner of the chargers back then moved the team to san diego realising his team could never compete with the Rams.He wasnt an idiot like dean spanos.HE realised they would NEVER succeed in LA competing against the Rams for attendance.:muahaha:


    that year the Rams had a losing record of 4-8 "THEY ONLY PLAYED 12 GAMES BACK THEN."

    but despite that,they had crowds that averaged around 77,000 in attendance.

    well the chargers that same year,even though THEY made it to the playoffs that same year,THEY only averaged crowds of just 10,000 or so,no lie,those are facts.which pretty much destroys the myth that LA is a fickle sports town.:iyfyus.jpg:

    oh and you are ALSO forgetting the chargers WERE winning last year but they STILL could not get any charger fans to show up to games last year or this year.:D


    portland would not work cause it has mostly seahawk fans.That is true about texas that is why you can rule out san antonio or oklahoma.

    st louis? that will never happen. they wont ever get another NFL team again.the NFL realise that st louis is not a football town.they had the same kind of fan support with the rams there that the chargers are having in LA,:D the very brief greatest show on turf days the exception.


    seems like Mexico is really his ONLY option.

    Assuming Spanos and the NFL would consider Memphis as a possibility, would the taxpayers of Memphis cough up money for a new stadium? Last time the NFL expanded, Memphis politicians said they would renovate the Liberty Bowl but would not build a new stadium.

    Mexico City? NFL players would not want to live there.

    By the way, the rest of the country has noticed the empty seats at Chargers and Rams games.

    The bottom line is the average family is not gonna waste $1000 or more to go see a football game. Sure you could go cheap with a family of 4 and squeeze it in for under $500 if you wanta eat McDonalds and walk 3 miles.

    The NFL is such a bunch of morons,they just dont get it that LA has NEVER worked as an experiment with two teams,never has,never will.

    If the RAIDERS who have a MUCH larger fansbase in LA that the chargers do,if THEY only had half empty crowds at their games the year they went to the superbowl and had this kind of results the next year when they won the superbowl for their home opener,

    September 9, 1984 Green Bay Packers W 28–7 46,269

    WHY would the chargers ever succeed in LA eve if they were great as the raiders were?:iyfyus.jpg:

    the NFL is so stupid,they just dont get it that LA is a ONE TEAM NFL city,that it is RAMS country. That it ONLY worrks if it is the Rams and the Rams ONLY.:rolleyes:

    Especially in cities like Miami, Tampa, and LA where the beach is free on a Sunday afternoon.

    That's right. Plus in Florida most of the football fans are students who go to the college games.
    A lot of Gators , Seminoles and Hurricanes fans.

    WHY wouldnt NFL players want to live there,why do you say that?

    oh and dude it is obvious you are too easy to fall for propaganda.That pic is from the Rams/49ers game this year.that pic was OBVIOUSLY taken just shortly after the second half began after halftime because I was AT that game a few weeks ago and there was NOT an empty seat in the house charlie.:D

    ask Angelo,he remembers me talking two weeks before that game took place how i was going to travel to california to see the rams/niners game/remember angelo?:D

    Dude you CLEARLY have not been watching ANY Ram games in LA because THEY do NOT have the attendance problems the chargers do.:rolleyes:

    You obviously not only have not watched any Rams games in LA this year but you obviously did not watch the Rams on monday night football last year when they played against the chiefs and vikings,all you got to do to see that stadium was packed for those games and the majority of the fans were Ram fans for BOTH games,is view those games.:D:lmao::laughing0301:


    the NFL is a bunch of morons,they just dont get it that two teams do not work in LA as it does in new york.:rolleyes:

    In new york,it DOES work with two teams because they got nothing better to do in new york in the wintertime when it is cold. in LA though,they got the beaches and entertainment so any team other than the rams does not work in the NFL.

    LA is Rams country and it has ALWAYS worked with just them and them alone. there is a REASON they have lasted 50 plus years in LA. unlike the raiders or chargers.:rolleyes:

    al davis when he was out in LA,he publicly hinted he made a mistake in moving the raiders to LA saying that he missed the loud roar of the OAKLAND crowds.hense WHY he got smart and moved them back to OAKLAND.:lmao::laughing0301:

    Jaguars are more likely to go to London than any other team.
