The Chargers are still talking to the Rams about eventually joining them in Inglewood. But if they move, they’re still going to need a place to play before KroenkeWorld is built.

According to Nathan Fenno of the Los Angeles Times, the L.A. Memorial Coliseum Commission is meeting today, to consider amending its lease with USC to allow two pro teams to play there.

As currently written, their lease is good for one NFL team to share the field with the Trojans, but plopping the Rams and the Chargers there would add 20 games of inventory.

The commission isn’t expected to vote on the matter today, but the approval is important as they’d need homes for three seasons, until the new building in Inglewood is ready to host in 2019.

    Sure, because selling out the Coliseum has never been a problem in the past…….

    HA ! Would be considered the worst NFL stadium for the next 3 years. Wasn’t that one of the reason Rams and Raiders left in the first place ? If they can play there for 3 years there is no reason why the current stadiums each of the 3 teams that are relocating cant play in their current stadiums. The NFL is going to price themselves out of the everyday fan who wont be able to afford to absorb the cost of a new stadium. Someone is going to have to pay for these stadiums and it will be the fans. PSLs and overpriced tickets for teams and owners that don’t care about winning.

    LA , three years should be enough time for you to figure out what kind of owner and organization you have in the Rams. Hail to the King of California.

    …..Isn’t it amazing that owners just HAVE to have a new stadium after 15-20 years….BUT yet the NFL finds the 60 year old Coliseum just fine to use for 2 teams.
