Are there any teams in LA that could play at the Forum, that aren't owned by AEG? Even the D-League LA D-Fenders are owned in part by AEG, but few follow them which is why they play at the Toyota Sports Center on the Lakers practice court.
A long shot and if it were to happen, I'd think AEG would have bought the Forum if they intended it, would be to move the Manchester Monarchs to LA.
I was kidding about the Sparks. Talk about useless.. I didn't realize until a summer or two ago that they actually have day games for the Sparks. That is how meaningless they are. WHo is going to watch women's basketball on a weekday afternoon? Well, nobody is paying for it. They must've had the whole parking lot filled with school children going to watch the game. Poor kids! They also tarp off the 300 level.
As far as Lacrosse and Arena football go, they tried both here. Anaheim had a Lacorsse franchise that went under and Staples had the Avengers and not sure exactly what happened to them but they aren't in LA anymore. I don't think much has changed since then so I doubt either of those ever make it to the Forum. Aside from the area it is, it is just hard to get to for a lot of the greater LA area.
