    should the oakland raiders move to los angeles?

    the raiders can't seem to sell tickets that well in oakland since they lost a lot of fans the first time they moved away to los angeles

    while in la, they played second fiddle to the then los angeles rams...but la is empty right now with no nfl team

    as a team, the raiders keep the highest winning percentage but choke a lot in big playoff games and they have not won a superbowl since january 1984, 18 1/2 years ago and that is a very sad thing

    2nd star on the right and straight till morning

    the last thing la needs is a football team. it just doesn't work here. no one cares.

    now if katzenberg, eisner and a few other studio heads were suited up to'd get some interest.

    we save our full-body contact sports for development meetings. :D

    los angeles has the film industry, the music industy, great clubs, museums, the opera, lots and lots of shopping, a baseball team and two if you count the california angels, a great basketball team, etc

    a city as big as la can have at least one football team since i know there must be some football fans

    being a major sports fan, i know enough to know that the raiders from northern cal will not bring on the same excitement as the dodgers and the lakers, but a football team would only make la a more interesting city
