So, Los Angeles has two NFL teams (and cue the laughs)…

…and both basically were not wanted in the cities they used to call home.

Nope, be quiet.

You know as well as I that if the people of St. Louis and San Diego wanted to get raked over the coals in order to continue to be called an NFL city that they’d have done it.

You know as well as I that if the people of St. Louis and San Diego wanted to continue to line the pockets of rich white men that they’d have done it.

You know as well as I that if the people of St. Louis and San Diego wanted to keep the supposed city treasures known as their professional football teams that they’d have made that sacrifice.

Let’s talk about how interested Los Angeles football fans are in having both the Rams and the Chargers, shall we.

Let’s play schedule maker. Go ahead and schedule USC-UCLA and LA Rams-LA Chargers with both games in the Coliseum. The Trojans-Bruins contest is on a Saturday with the Rams-Chargers game the next day.

Which one definitely sells out? Which one will fans talk about? Which one will engender passionate arguments about “my” team and “your” team?

Come on, let’s get serious: LA Rams and LA Chargers is like the obligatory invitation you have to send to your drunk aunt and her racist husband at the holidays. You are just so excited to have them with you!

Los Angeles, you really deserved better than this nonsense.
