The location of the proposed Farmers Field was also not very desirable, which is something Leiweke strongly pushed for.

The writing was on the wall: Leiweke was forced to resign. Anschutz put his company on the market after the city's approval to develop Farmers Field, then suddenly with the NFL looking at other sites, and Leiweke stepping down, AEG is no longer for sale? It's fairly obvious to me that Anschutz wants nothing to do with the NFL.
This makes a lot of sense....almost too much sense. Ziggy must know something.
