Miami Gets Record 11th Super Bowl In 2020
That's not LA, it's IngleWatts.
I'm glad though, it's exciting to host a SuperBowl again.
We all saw it coming
Not any worse than where the Coliseum is where the Raiders played.
At least this section of the city is undergoing a transformation.
Hopefully when its all done i wont be scurred to drive my white ass through there.
NFL is letting San Diego know that we can have ONE Super Bowl if we ok a new stadium.
Dear NFL, go get your fucking shinebox. We don't need the shitty fucking Chargers staying here.
Anyone think they're really gonna have that huge fuckin pond where both space and water are in short supply? Oh and unless the Raiders are in it in '21, fuck this idea.
I want the Chargers to stay there and I want you to pay for it.
Well, I want the fucking Chargers out of here, and I won't let the tourists build this shithole in San Diego.
Los Angeles Chargers. Rolls right off the tongue, enjoy the heart break.
Las Vegas Raiders...... I like that one too.
You should lay down in front of the bulldozers.
The Chargers will have a worse fan base up here than in SD.
I think they should bring the Raiders back here since most of the fans here are still Raiders fans.
That's about the only upside I can see to this whole mess. A new stadium will create a few decent construction jobs for a short time - and many crappy service sector jobs for a long time.
But I'm not sure that's enough to balance out all the negatives. Los Angelenos who don't pony up for the expensive all-access NFL viewing packages will lose one third of their Sunday morning/afternoon television coverage in exchange for having to watch shitty Rams games.
As well, the location is horrible. Inglewood and the surrounding cities are crowded enough as is. Effectively doubling the town's population on game days will be a nightmare - especially when you consider the lack of easy freeway access. The closest freeway - the 405 - is both over a mile away at its closest point and a bumper-to-bumper pain in the ass under the best of circumstances. The area can barely handle 12,000 people at a Forum event. Quintupling that number is a recipe for disaster. It all just seems a high price to pay for the dubious honor of having one of the shittiest teams in pro football play in your city.
Yeah, in the present environment, I'd have to say the Raiders would be a better fit. Still a really bad team, but at least they have a proud tradition to build on.
Have they broken ground on that new stadium?
Good for LA though. I love that city/area
Damn, you get paid by the word?
One? No, two of the shottiest teams, we are sending you the Chargers.
The tourists are going to build a beautiful Convadium in downtown so that SD can stop being a sleepy suburb of Los Angeles.
I'm happy for them.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (KABC) --
It's not much to look at yet but construction is underway at the site of the future home of the Los Angeles Rams in Inglewood.
NFL owners voted on Tuesday to allow the Rams to move to Los Angeles starting next season.
There will be a transition period for the Rams. The team plans to begin playing at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in the 2016 season and move into the new 80,000-seat facility in Inglewood in time for the 2019 season.

Some construction progress has been made in Inglewood. The city's permitting process was done by December, the sewer infrastructure is in place, the land is graded and the architectural plans and construction drawings are finished, according to Inglewood Mayor James Butts.
"It's going to be in the middle of a million square feet of office, close to a million square feet of retail, four public parks, about 26 acres, a hotel, a movie theater," the mayor said. "It's going to be like a sports entertainment complex and it's made to be walkable, so it's like walking around the Getty even when it's closed."
Butts said El Nino-driven storms may delay work on the stadium.

Chef Scottie, owner of Scottles Gumbo and Grill located across the street from the stadium property, said the economy in Inglewood sank when the L.A. Lakers left the Forum in 1999.
Now he can't wait to see the uptick in business and a return to prosperity in Inglewood.
"Whoa, now this is good for business" Scottie said. "I started my first business about 25 years ago and back-and-forth, back-and-forth, but now this right here is really going to boost sales and everything else."
Rams fan Raymond Trujillo came out to the construction site Wednesday morning to see it for himself.
"I came out today just to see where the stadium is going to be built and get the feel of the area out here. I already went to the Coliseum this morning just to see where we're going to play next season. It's unbelievable," Trujillo said.
Tuesday's decision by league owners also gives the Chargers the option to join the Rams in Inglewood or remain in San Diego. The NFL said the Chargers have one year to make a decision.
Glad they schedule these things so far out. It helps us fans of certain teams with our planning.
We aint building no 1.8 billion dollar stadiums for the Spanos family down here.
Not anymore, bub.
Rams are dicking around at QB.
