The National Football League issued a statement on January 9, published by the L.A. Times, that says the plans for government stadium subsidies for Oakland, St. Louis, and San Diego are "unsatisfactory and inadequate."
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said that each of the cities was given "ample opportunity but did not develop their proposals sufficiently to ensure the retention of its NFL team." This is another way of saying that those three cities have supposedly failed because they put infrastructure, help for low-income neighborhoods, and aid to the homeless and helpless ahead of subsidies for billionaires. (The majority of the 32 NFL team owners are billionaires.)
The NFL did not give any hint on which of the teams will be favored for relocation to Los Angeles. The betting now seems to favor the St. Louis Rams locating to Inglewood in the stadium being built by Rams owner Stan Kroenke, with the Chargers as a second tenant — either a renter or having a modest piece of the equity. Some think Oakland will then want to move to St. Louis or San Diego.
