    LA Stadium Builder will NOT attempt to move Vikes

    At least not at this stage anyway:

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=09000d5d8158865c&template=with-video-with-comments&confirm=true

    The company behind a plan to lure the NFL back to Los Angeles said Tuesday that the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills are the first teams it will try to relocate to Southern California.
    Semcken said Majestic will not approach the 49ers, Chargers or Vikings as long as those teams are seeking stadium plans of their own. He said it wouldn't be fair to interfere with their efforts to remain in their home markets.

    Good news, although Ziggy just lost some leverage.
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    Re:LA Stadium Builder will NOT attempt to move Vikes

    Majestic Realty Co. managing partner John Semcken said the company is still considering at least seven franchises for a new stadium in the city of Industry, some 25 miles east of Los Angeles. They also include the San Francisco 49ers, San Diego Chargers, Minnesota Vikings, St. Louis Rams and Oakland Raiders.
    You're safe for now, but how much has the situation really changed? I mean, as long as you're looking for a new stadium, you aren't actually going to move, anyway, are you?

    As soon as Ziggy decides that he's had enough, he could be in LA in no time.

    That said, if the Jaguars get a chance to move, you'd think they'd do it. They can't fill up their stadium with the Buccaneers just a little south of them and Georgia being Falcons territory.

    I don't see the Bills moving, though.

    The stadium push will get more attention after the season and it will help having that Super Bowl trophy in town.

    Considering the Bills are already playing one home game in another stadium i'd say they are first on the list. Although the Bills have better attendance than the Jags and that is for a team without a post-season appearance for a decade.

    What Situation?

    Ted Will drive the Packers out of Green bay before the Vikings ever leave Minnesota.

    I am happy about this even though I live in LA.

    I would hate to steal another city's team. I just don't like it.

    There is lots of talk about the Bills possibly moving to Toronto. Found this article in the Washington Post.
