OMG OMG OMG Mark Davis said something nice about Los Angeles! He’s totally moving the Oakland Raiders there!
“Los Angeles is a great option.” Davis said.
An option for the Raiders?
“Absolutely,” he said.
And just to be clear, he added: “Sure. We loved it when we were down here.”
And San Diego Chargers owner Dean Spanos said something nice about it, too, so the Chargers are totally moving there too!
“We’re looking into all our possibilities, all our options,” Spanos said.
Does that mean potentially re-locating to Los Angeles?
“I’m just keeping all my options open,” Spanos said.
And Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan hasn’t said anything about Los Angeles, so they’re totally not moving there!
Of course, cynical types might point out that sports team owners say these kinds of things all the time, whether they’re actually interested in moving or just trying to put pressure on hometown elected officials to get cracking on stadium subsidies. (Or both. There’s nothing saying owners can’t work both sides of this street.) But we don’t allow cynical types around here, so let’s welcome your 2015 Los Angeles Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers! They’ll totally find a vacant lot to play in by then.
