The stadium in Industry would be better for at least 23 reasons and AEG will get Farmers Field because they greased the political wheels to get the deal. The better field isn't going to win and it's sad that not it's coming down to what is better for everyone, but is coming down to backroom deals.
So on a nice November afternoon when the Chargers/Rams have a typical NFL afternoon home game and the Lakers have a typical 6:30p start at Staples...how do you think the 110 FWY is going to look at say 4:30p. I'm thinking there will be even more late ariving Lakers fans than usual.
I know AEG is seedy and corrupt (We don't call him Lieweekly for nothing), but the City really needs this for revenues and a revitalized spirit in a town that is so segmented racially and regionally I tend to think the ends justify the means.
Heck, I'm the only person I know that thinks we should build a new downtown baseball stadium for the Dodgers. Dodger Stadium is an old place that wasn't built for today's fan or for today's modern city.... Yes it has a nice back drop... But there's nothing else to do there, there no mass transit to get there and as we now know there are major security concerns that the city can't afford to remedy...
Anyway, I like the COI plans... nice looking stadium, but bottomline LA needs a downtown football stadium. Having said all this....
Here we go Steelers...Here we go!!!
