    Goodell To LA NFL Guys: ‘We’re Just Not Into You’

    Yesterday Roger Goodell obliterated the L.A. NFL bid by Majestic Realty’s Ed Roski and John Semcken with one seemingly innocuous, though telling statement:

    “The key issue is the challenges of financing a facility in this environment with the labor agreement that we have. The cost of building that stadium is almost entirely on the ownership and that is a big burden to pay in this type of environment.”

    Why is that statement by Goodell a clear indication that the NFL has no intention of partnering with Roski and Semcken? Because before Goodell said that, he already knew that Roski and Semcken were more than capable of financing the deal privately with their own money.

    City of Greed
    THE CITY OF INDUSTRY IS NOT A place tourists frequent when they visit Los Angeles. With its low-slung, monotonous industrial buildings, crisscrossing railroad tracks and cheesy commercial strip featuring topless bars, liquor stores and bodegas, it's the ugly stepsister to Tinseltown's more glamorous haunts.

    Roski has said he will not break ground on the stadium until he has a commitment from an NFL team to move to Los Angeles.[1] In exchange for footing the bill to construct the stadium, Roski wants at least a 30 percent ownership stake in any team that moves to Los Angeles to play there.[2].
    Excellent stuff my friend. Can you say "Bowers Hill VA"? :cheer:
    nope

    If they do move, wouldn't you rather they move someplace were you not only get to see the game, but have a fishing guide ready and waiting to take you fishing? :silly:

    a) I'd switch teams if they move outside of the Minnesota area.

    b) I'm fairly confident I'd never make it to Virginia for a game, despite having a fishing guide waiting.
