08:33 AM ET 05.12 | Los Angeles has no NFL team. Los Angeles wants an NFL team. The NFL wants Los Angeles to have an NFL team. Vikings owner Zygi Wilf had an NFL team with an old, outdated stadium. But coincidentally, a few weeks after Wilf's plane made its cameo SoCal appearance, Minnesota came up with acceptable terms. This wasn't good for Raider fans who choose to be paranoid about the team possibly moving to L.A. With the Minnesota domino falling -- and the San Diego domino leaning toward a potential tumble -- the Raiders are in good position to stare down Oakland officials and not blink.

LA had the Rams and Raiders and didn't support them. They don't deserve another team.

How's it going LSN? They should just stay in Oakland, at least the fans support them there. they move to LA all will be good a couple years and then the novelty will wear out.

Would be funny if it happened. Imagine the next set of teams threatening to move to Oakland if they do not get a new stadium.

Haven't heard much about the stadium goings-on there...

It would be interesting to see what happens when their state governments call their bluff on that one.

Morning Bro...

Last I heard in San Diego was that they would tear up the beaches and put in condos before they built a new stadium there. Maybe things have changed...
