11:29 AM ET 01.09 | The NFL team most likely to move to Los Angeles is the San Diego Chargers, not the Vikings, whom the league wants to remain in Minnesota. Oakland is second in line for Los Angeles.

Who cares?

Hey, I beat the spam!

Why would L.A. want the Raiders back? Been there, done that. Their fan base will lower the value of any neighborhood they put a stadium.

Did they photoshop that picture??...Where's the smog??

It moved out of town because a bunch of illegals took its job.

What snow-capped mountains are part of LA's skyline??? I haven't lived there in 23 years, but I think I'd remember that. Is that really what it looks like behind that thick, greyish-brown smog?

The NFL owners would have to approve that move and there is no way....NO WAY....they would ever do Al Davis a favor like that. He is hated by the other owners. This is no different than the speculation that the Saints were going to move to L.A. after Katrina. No way the other owners would do a favor for Tom Benson. They think he's a buffoon. Whereas Al Davis is an ***hole!

Here we go... haven't had a "<fill in the blank> to LA" thread in what - a month?

Damn it son, you are like butter today-on a roll!

I'd put money on it being the Chargers

That about covers that one. Somebody is going there ( media market for next tv contract being the driving force ), but it won't be the Raiders.

I still think that if any team moves its going to be the Jaguars the team has to be losing some money because that stadium always looks like its only 3/4th full. But don't you think that they would have to build a stadium first to lure a team or will they just play at USC's stadium for the first few years there

They must have, the dead body in the grass is no longer there!!

LA just seems to be a dumping ground for other CA teams who throw tantrums. Get the Rams back!

It actually looks like downtown Denver.

No surprise the Chargers are top of the list. If you can't sell out your home stadium without 25,000 visiting fans buying tickets.....

January 9, 2011  09:09 PM ET

Not Oakland again.

January 9, 2011  10:01 PM ET

People in LA don't care so why should I?

LA can't support a team they tried in the past and all have failed why waste the time......then again every home game - they lock the gates at halftime and then check ID's on the way out great way to catch the illegals

That's it. Get O'bummah to pass a stimulus package to give season passes to LA Chargers games to illegals.

"Chargers? We don't need no steenking Chargers."
