08:01 AM ET 11.04 | Might Frank McCourt have another parting gift to Los Angeles in the form of an NFL franchises? The pending sale of the Los Angeles Dodgers -- and, more importantly, the property where Dodger Stadium sits -- could have an interesting impact on bringing the NFL back to the City of Angels. It could make it happen a lot faster. ... [The] sudden presence on the market of the Dodgers and the 177-acre piece of property in Chavez Ravine is like a game where an opponent exchanges a pawn for a queen. "That location is a potentially a game-changer if something doesn't get done with one of those groups [Roski or AEG] in the next couple of months," an NFL source said Thursday.

As long as that **** has nothing to do with any sports franchise it's a good thing.

Rest in Peace, Count Dooku. We found out last night that he passed away on October 16th. A sad day for all of us.

The name is definitely going to change.

What would change? There's already a stadium and parking lot sitting on those 177 acres. And the Dodger kinda need that stadium to play baseball in.

Are they still playing?

And the great shell game continues.
As long as the NFL has LA to dangle as the carrot they have perceived leverage.
The day the NFL moves a team to LA they have none. There is no place else to go.

Having been there... I'm not sure there is "that" much adjacent land available although I'm sure Bone or some of the locals could verify.

This will shake the trees in Minnesota.The smug legislators were figuring they had time since the Vikes had no real place to go stadium wise. Maybe the Wilfs will start signing a different tune now and say, maybe we won't contribute as much. Very interesting.
I do firmly beleive if the Wilfs don't get the Arden Hills site they sell the team or move. Ziggy does not want to be downtown, no money in it for him.
