As the elephant in the room that is Los Angeles grows larger by the day, the league continues to get more updates on the possibilities.
According to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the league held a meeting yesterday in New York to discuss the costs involved with the two proposed stadiums in L.A.
There were “home market” updates from St. Louis, Oakland and San Diego, with the owners of the Rams, Raiders and Chargers there. But the local leaders in each market trying to keep the teams (such as Dave Peacock and Bob Blitz in St. Louis) were not part of the meeting.
That in and of itself should tell you that the thrust of this meeting was more about Rams owner Stan Kroenke’s Inglewood bid, as well as the shared-venture in Carson the Raiders and Chargers are discussing.
There were also presentations from the league to members of the league’s Los Angeles committee, which includes owners Clark Hunt (Kansas City), Robert Kraft (New England), John Mara (New York Giants), Bob McNair (Houston), Jerry Richardson (Carolina) and Art Rooney (Pittsburgh).
They’re also meeting on Aug. 11 in Chicago, giving the entire group a chance to hear more about the plans.
