Football is Back in L.A.

Well the Rams are moving back to Los Angeles and many people saw it coming. The Chargers have a chance to move with them, if they agree on a lease agreement by Jan. 2017. If a deal is not reached by then, the Raiders then get a chance to make the move. The Raiders may look to move elsewhere, say San Antonio or even San Diego. From what I can see there is mixed emotions from fans about the Rams move to L.A., and in a sense kind of reminds me when Lebron James left Cleveland for the first time. I’ve seen a video of someone burning a Rams flag hours after the decision was made. It was almost a unanimous decision by the NFL owners. I think that as a business decision, this move made sense. The stadium that is set to open in 2019, will be used for more than just football. Soccer, concerts, and much more will be held there. I think that is what ultimately led to the decision. But from the point of view from the people of St. Louis, people are losing jobs, and really only have the Cardinals and the Blues to look forward to. What happens to the legacies created by Marshall Faulk, Kurt Warner, Torry Holt, and Isaac Bruce? The greatest show on turf, is just a memory now. Players and their families now have to relocate to L.A. After all this is said and done, the Rams are moving and some people like it, while some people just lost their hometown team. It all comes down to sports being a business and money talks.
