http://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-sp-nfl-stadium-aeg-20150309-story.html#page=2 NFL has not been in Los Angeles for nearly 20 years. There are many reasons for this, but all of a sudden, there are 4 serious bids to build NFL stadiums in the greater LA Area. AEG, owner of the O2 Arena on London, Staples Center in LA, and dozens of other stadiums and sports teams (inlcuding LA Galaxy) were furthest down the line of development when two new and very serious bids came in attached to actual NFL teams. This article discusses the AEG counterattack, specifically how limp it is... The Carson plan is of great interest to me since it is very close to my home (4 miles or so). The studies AEG paid for are hilarious for their comical conclusions. My secret hope is that LA gets the AEG plan for Farmers Field accomplished, I become a fair weather fan of said NFL occupant there, the Galaxy move in to play in a true downtown atmosphere, and we all live happily ever after. So many options and variables, and it is anybody's guess who will prevail. By the way, AEG used to have the most visionary leader in Tim Leiweke, but he got in a spat over Farmers Field with AEG owner Phil Anschutz and left to Toronto. Anschutz tried to sell off the company in the wake of Leiweke's departure, but couldn't get a buyer at the price he was asking, and now I can't help but feel Anschutz is pining for Timmy to return, and Leiweke is launghing all the way to the bank elsewhere.
