    On my way to the stadium last night, I got to listening to 103.3 as usual. They were talking about the chances of Los Angeles getting an NFL team. They said that the teams that they could land could be, #1 San Diego, or, #2 Buffalo. Someone said that they could be an expansion team, but that there was not enough talent available. Not enough talent available? Dis anyone else hear this?

    i didn't hear that
    but i can see where an expansion wouldn't work
    32 teams (4 teams / 8 divisions) works
    36 could (6 teams / 6 divisions)
    33 teams ? nope

    and the talent pool isn't quite as desolate as they would claim
    i'd say there's enough to fill another roster

    I'm not sure, the last expansion team they added still hasn't even had a winning season yet.

    There's no way the NFL should expand again...

    i see your point
    but it isn't due to lack of talent
    they got some quality seasoned guys in the expansion draft

    that FO has screwed it up for them

    oh wait ..... are you talking Texans or Browns ?
    doesn't matter - same answer

    they've had as much opportunity to draft and FA dip as any of the rest of us

  6. I agree, but they will. They are #$%# bent on making sure L.A gets a team. L.A has had, what, 2 teams in the past and they both stunk. I can't for the life of me understand what makes the NFL think another team will be any better. Its all about the :greedy:

    LA will get a team, but it won't be through expansion. If I had to bet today, I'd say the Chargers will wind up there. Sucks as far as I'm concerned. LA doesn't seem to really even want a team, but you hear things like "Charger fans will still be able to see the team in LA."

    LA is the second largest media market in the country, so they will get something. The problem with LA is (and always has been) that if the team is not a conference champion contender....nobody goes and ticket sales plummit. It happens evrywhere to some degree, but it is really bad in LA.

    That's what I thought when they were first left without a team, but it's been years now and the NFL is flourishing without them just fine.

    I agree completely. "If it ain't broke...." But the NFL seems to think the "have" to have a team in the 2nd largest market.????????
    LA has an ego as well. It was the Anaheim Angels until they started to win, now it is the LA Angels of Anaheim, or something ridiculous like that.
