    LA announces which NFL teams they want to poach.

    Article on Yahoo about which NFL franchises Los Angeles would approach with this new stadium they want to build.

    Los Angeles announces intentions to poach the Jaguars or Bills - Shutdown Corner - NFL Blog - Yahoo! Sports

    Nice to see The Vikings are not on that list, although I still wonder being that every drawing I see of the stadium has purple as the primary color.

    Bills wont move. The Bills fans are die hard. St Louis or Jacksonville.

    You could say that about the cleveland fans too before they bolted to Baltimore. It's not about the fans; it's about the owners and money.

    Re: LA announces which NFL teams they want to poach.

    I don't think that it can be Buffalo. If it came down to Jacksonville and Buffalo I'd go with Jacksonville. There is too much history between the Bills and Buffalo. Jacksonville doesn't have that. I think that Buffalo being one of the founding members of the AFL helps as well.

    If Buffalo moves then the NFL is dead to me. I've been a life long Bills fan and cannot bring myself to cheer for another team.

    Most of Jacksonville doesn't even know they have a football team.

    Buffalo will move to Toronto before they move to LA.

    Would the NFL become the I(International)FL then?

    Atleast you'd be able to get french fries and gravy at the game.

    I think the NHL answers that question.

    Re: LA announces which NFL teams they want to poach.

    The Blue Jays play in the American Leauge. Hopefully this motivates Minnesota and the Vikings to get their stadium issues resolved.

    If Jax moves to LA would it make sense for the Chiefs to move to the AFC south?

    Re: LA announces which NFL teams they want to poach.

    The Buffalo Bills will never move. To say they don't have a huge following of fans is ludicrous. I've been to multiple games and their stadium is almost always sold out. Tag that in with a storied program... it won't happen.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I don't like to see teams move...but the plan for the stadium complex is pretty cool:

    Los Angeles Stadium
