 People in LA have been clamoring to bring a football team back to the city for a long time. Now that dream is coming one step closer to becoming a reality, as the Carson City Council approved plans to build a proposed stadium with a unanimous vote.

This isn’t just a stadium for a single team. This mammoth project could potentially bring in both the Oakland Raiders AND the San Diego Chargers, with both franchises sharing the facility. This seems to only be the case though, if projects for stadiums in those individual cities fall through.

This is where the plot thickens…is the NFL the new House of Cards?!

There seems to be a lot of political maneuvering going on behind the scenes. Football fans just want to be able to head to a NFL game in LA, but the backers of stadium proposals around California are jockeying for position.

First of all, this project going forward could potentially be a move to push the Chargers and Raiders to accelerate plans to complete stadiums in their respective cities.

Second of all, a stadium was already approved in Inglewood just two months ago.This one is a multipurpose entertainment facility, with plans to host all kinds of large scale events. It would also be a home to the St. Louis Rams?!

So are we talking about three teams? Or are we talking about businessmen and powerful real estate executives racing to the finish to see who can break ground on a stadium first?

Hopefully, the stadium will be built with the fans in mind, as opposed to the most lucrative deal for whichever team(s?) end up occupying it. Whatever happens, we’ll be watching!
