BREAKING -- Developers tell @latimes that Inglewood stadium will be delayed by year, open in 2020 http://www.latimes.c...0518-story.html

 

 

Who cares, nobody is going to go to the games anyway

Rochester to Buffalo is always a two hour drive. San Diego to L.A. could be three to four hours much of the time. One or two fender benders on the 5, 10, 15, 105, 110, 405, 605, 805, etc. with 10,000,000 people in the region always slows that drive down. I have tickets for the Bills vs. Chargers game and I rented a hotel for Sat. night because of the traffic. As of now, 2:48pm Pac Time it's 3:05 one way and 2:53 back. And rush hour hasn't totally kicked in. Granted games are on Sunday, so who knows! But it's not Roch to Buff.

Did Key Bank Center to Henrietta in 1 hour 10 minutes this February and I wasn't even trying very hard.  There is nothing in Buffalo that even compares a little bit to the traffic in SoCal or even to something like I-95 on a Friday afternoon anywhere between NY and Quantico, VA

Yes we had rain but not enough to delay this project one full year. Rivers will never play in this stadium and to now have to play in a 27k soccer stadium will kill the Charger organization.


Philip Rivers played in a 70k football stadium for 13yrs and pooped the bed year after year. Maybe 27k will be better for him.

Why?

 

Aside from the Rose Bowl Game & UCLA football, is the Rose Bowl used for other events?

 

Is the city of Pasadena too civilized for NFL fans?

I think U2 performed there tonight. and yes, Pasadena can be pretty snooty.  They buy a house a block from a legendary stadium and then try to block it from having events because they don't like the traffic.

We'll see, but it's a tough market for one team.  Two is even more of a challenge.  Both teams had better win or fans will lose interest pretty fast.

i live on the most eastern side of rochester, and it takes me 90 mins max to get to buffalo.  we really are lucky to have our version of "rush hour".  at it's worst, you might be caught for 40 mins to an hour, and that's once every blue moon.

I'm guessing that the attendance in LA will be good for a few years while 25 million people take turns going to see the new Stadium. After that....we'll see.

That explains it.

Rebuilding what? Broken dreams?

 

@AlbertBreer

Here's the Super Bowl LV/LVI resolution.

We'll see if both teams are even still in LA in 2020!  Despite the NFL dream, the demographics are not there for one, much less two teams.

The houses preceded the Bowl. The original deal was for a once-a-year football game. Took a major effort to get approval for UCLA to play there. Every event is a battle and a headache.

The stadium should be finished just in time for the Rams to be ready to move (again).

That means just in time for when the Rams will be playing to half empty stadiums by that point, hahaha

Per ESPN.com's Darren Rovell, the Rams and Chargers will each pay $645 million over a period of 10 years from 2019 to 2028, and the Raiders will pay a total of $378 million over 10 years starting with the year they move to Las Vegas. 
 
Rovell noted that each of the teams' relocation fees are based on the projected increase in franchise value. 
 
Between the three teams' relocation fees, each of the NFL's 29 other teams will receive a total sum of $55.2 million.

I just flew into LAX last week and was amazed at how little has been done. You can see a double row of concrete columns that definitely form the classic oval shape of the lower bowl but that's about it. They have a long long long way to go!

I was also amazed that the darn thing was right under the plane! It's going to be interesting during games since planes land at LAX probably every five minutes or so.
