Rams to relocate

The St. Louis Rams are headed to Inglewood, California, the result of a vote made by the NFL's owners on Tuesday, sources told ESPN.

The San Diego Chargers may also join the Rams, but have until Jan. 16, 2017 to agree to lease terms with the Rams, according to sources. If the Chargers decline the Oakland Raiders, another former L.A. tenant, can link up with the Rams, sources said.
I am so glad the Vikings got their stadium deal done. I cannot imagine life without them, as much as they drive me crazy every year.

The Devil whispered in the Viking's ear, "There's a storm coming." The Viking replied, "I am the storm." ‪#‎SKOL2017 #BringitHome‬

I really don't understand why California needs 4 nfl teams. It's pretty rediculous. I know it's because the owner is a greedy piece of #### who wants a giant media market. But what's the reason they moved from LA in the first place?

Is the new Rams stadium going to be in a dome?

Actually from what I read it's going to be a roof more than a dome. Open on the sides with a 19 acre ETFE roof over the stadium and surrounding area. So they will get the sunlight but not the rain.

In what way would that be a distraction?

You just have to experience L.A. to understand if you have money there is
always something to do... you name it and it goes on somewhere in L.A.
