He definitely took a page from the Buss' playbook. The title page, as it were.

Yeah, even with a championship, the media is treating the Kings the same old way, as they have in all summers past.

Amazing, isn't it? Thank God for Twitter and Philip Pritchard, the keeper of the Cup!

I just accept it, no one cares but us Kings Fans.

Hell NHL die hard fans don't even care. Plenty of people are already saying it was a Fluke run.

The NFL dominates America, it will until we are all long gone and dead.

Hockey is an after thought.

Yeah. Last MNF's controversial ending dominated LA sports talk radio this week and this is a city that does not have an NFL team. When Brad Doty scored that controversial GWG against the Jackets last year, no one was talking about it.

**** the LA media and **** handegg even if we get a team here.

Disney reverted back to all-red back in 2002. Only a few changes have been made since the Moreno era. Obvipusly, the stupid LAAoA name change and the name of the stadium. From Edison International Field to Angel Stadium of Anaheim. What's with the "of Anaheim" in Anaheim sports? Let's not forget the Ducks used to be called the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim instead of Anaheim Mighty Ducks.
Correct Disney cashed in on the Angels winning then sold the team to Arty who has tried getting them back there by spending a lot of money and the name change to Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim was for marketing. The of Anaheim was added because I believe the city sued the team cause of the change think that's why the stadium is also called what it is if I remember right. I love the angels but I do not like the name they have now I believe it should be Anaheim Angels.

LA Times article from June which outlines Goodell's instructions to the league for moving to L.A.

Cliff's Notes:

For starters, it mentions the Raiders, Rams, Chargers, and the Jags as the 4 teams interested in coming to LA.

Says teams need to have a contingency agreement with the Rose Bowl or Coliseum to play starting in 2013 while their stadium is being built.

Says they want two teams to move to LA.

Says that teams must explain to the league why moving to LA is their only option (like why the Raiders should move to LA rather than share the new stadium in Santa Clara with the Niners)

Goodell is not a stupid man, No one has paid him enough money under the table for him to loosen those relocation rains.

That's the way I see it.

I've heard from a guy I play golf with who works for the Rams that it's a done deal that they're coming back to L.A.

Wouldn't surprise me.

But we likely won't know until 2014 because Stan Kronke has to wait until then for stadium renovations to be up to a certain standard, and if they aren't, then they can leave.

Yeah I used to think the Jags were an obvious choice to move, but the new owner keeps insisting that he is keeping them in Jacksonville.

Imagine what would happen if the Raiders and Bolts both moved to LA. Would the NFL re-align divisions (specifically the AFC West) to prevent them from getting the extra home games each year?

Rams and Raiders look like the frontrunners to return. I would welcome that.

**** the Raiders. If two teams are moving here, bring the Rams and the Bolts.

With all the years that LA has been NFL-less, I really wouldn't be too picky which team moves here.

The Chargers belong in San Diego, that is their home. The Raiders and Rams belong here, and I'd get some sick satisfaction out of the cities who took them from us having to go through losing them like we did.

I'll bet Timmy and the new owner will be. Do you really want those same people who riot after laker championships down there more? As someone who will likely be going to those games(unless its the Raiders), I sure as hell don't. That doesn't even take into account the fact that i'll be working down there by then.

If we don't end up with the Raiders, I think the LA fan base of the Raiders will eventually die down as kids will grow up rooting for the local LA team. LA fans that choose to stay with the Raiders will be "Raidersnobs" just like the Eurosnobs in the American soccer fan base, who refuse to follow the MLS.

You must not know that the Chargers started out in LA.

God willing. The fewer Raiders fans this planet has, the better.

If the Raiders come back the National Guard will have to do security at the games.

If the Raiders come back, the Kings will have to change their colors again.

yes the Bolts started in LA, but they belong in SD

the Raiders need to stay where they belong, Oakland

the Rams are the only one of the three that should return. they belong in LA. hell when they were in Anaheim, many fans complained about them being in OC. they are the team that belongs in LA. no one else

and no i am not a Rams fan. (Vikings and Bolts fan here)

I'm a Raider fan since the Stabler days of their first stint in Oakland, and I don't even want them here. I went to one game and that was enough.

Been to games in Oakland, a much better atmosphere. I wasn't worried about being assaulted, for one.
