Every time the NFL has "asked" the taxpayers in and around LA to build a stadium they have been told to pound sand. The NFL wants LA more than LA wants the NFL.

I can see your point about other cities doing it to be relevant. I don't think the citizens of Phoenix and the surrounding area have ever met a stadium/arena that they didn't like (fund).
