    Rumor has it an existing team(Saints or Vikings) is on its way to L.A. And since there would be a lot of uproar if poor lil new orleans got screwed here, rumor has it the vikings are outta here.

    Nananana nananana...hey hey hey...GOODBYE!

    I heard that the saints were going to san antonio for a year and then would be moving to LA. Not sure how accurate it was though. I just wish we could get an NFL team here in michigan. Maybe one in grand rapids would be cool, california has enough teams.

    No kidding. I've always thought the same thing. NY has 3, CA 3, FL 3, PA 2, TX 2, MO 2 and the Skins and the Ravens are about 40 miles apart. These teams could be a little more spread out.

    Of course places like Wyoming probably wouldn't be great for an NFL team.

    That was my thought when I heard that LA was getting a team--that the vikes would be going out there. I think it just might happen especially if they can't get a new stadium.

    Ohio has two teams, FREAKING OHIO!!! That is a crime. Wyoming would be an awesome stadium if they had a team. 5,000 people and 5,000 deer, antelope, elk and moose in attendance for todays game. I grew up in wyoming and the only team we had to root for was the denver donkeys.

    I know....send the Saints to North Dakota! At least when they suck, only about 50 people will be watching! OK, just kidding. ND has about as good of a chance at landing a professional team as the Vikings do winning a Super Bowl!

    Los Angeles is one of the biggest cities in the nation without an nfl team since the rams left. They have to be represented as well. I dont think any team is gonna move there, it will be just another expansion.

    They've had two teams leave them I must believe they left for a reason. IF the owners were making so much money why did the L.A. Rams and L.A. Raiders leave?

    You have your doubts why don't you share them instead of being a copout and pushing the question asked back onto the person who is asking it.

    Oh, the way you stated your opinion made it look like you knew what you were talking about. I thought you knew the facts, and i wanted you to share it with me. I guess you didn't know what you were talking about. Sorry.

    You find a new way to be a jerk with every post towards me, congrats :)

    Let's go back to the comment shall we?
    :::IF the owners were making so much money why did the L.A. Rams and L.A. Raiders leave?:::

    See the ? that indicates a QUESTION. :)

    I'll offer up my opinion as I always do :p

    I think the NFL wants a team there because of the TV market, however I don't think owners want a team there because they do not make enough money there. Perhaps stadium issues? I don't know. But with how much the NFL says we 'need' a team in L.A. it doesn't make sense to me why TWO teams left. My first thought is as I said, it somehow makes the NFL money, but doesn't make the owner money. How? hell -- you got me on that one.

    No, that indicated that 'money' was the reason the rams\raiders left.

    thats like saying, "If Ryan was so straight, why did we find him in a gay bar?"

    its insinuating the 2nd part, but thats fine, I misunderstood you.

    But seriously...can someone find out why they DID leave L.A.?
