It Was San Diego's Turn To Complain About NFL Relocation
((HT: ABC 10 San Diego))
The town hall meeting in St. Louis earlier this week was the first of three involving the National Football League and the cities that might lose their franchise to a brand, spanking new stadium in Los Angeles (or Inglewood or City of Industry or some place like that...) in the near future.
The St. Louis meeting went as expected- the owner of the rams was booed at every mention, the NFL representatives got yelled at, and the people in town trying to save the team's current location got the biggest amount of cheers during the night.
Stop 2 was San Diego and the reactions were about the same...
This was the first time in this town hall setting that members of the local franchise actually faced the fans and their anger. In St. Louis, it was league officials that drew the collective ire.
Next up, the meeting in Oakland- which might be the most colorful of the three...
This was the least-attended of the two meetings by a boatload. And, it will all come down to financing and who wants to step up to the plate to see which city will bleed its taxpayers dry the most to see who keeps and who loses their team (or "teams") to the new Los Angeles project.
