    tickets for the colts/rams game are being sold for under $10. Is LA's way of trying to lure as many people to support their team.

    As for the chargers, I just hope most people in LA don't shut off their TVs tomorrow. It will be sad if that game go down in the ratings.

    wow I just moved from LA, id go in a heartbeat
    I was there for the first game back, vs Dallas in preseason but the nosebleeds were $100
    guess the novelty has worn off

    Ive been in the Chargers new place when it was empty, man it is small. You probably wont be able to tell how small on tv but for an NFL stadium it is really tiny

    Yep, it is a soccer stadium with a normal capacity of 27,000. They will add 3,000 seats for NFL games.

    I'm moving back close to that area and will go to games(Chargers) as long as it isn't the same time as Dallas :D

    I hope they get some support.

    Who thought NFL in LA was a good idea? The Rams can't fill a stadium so we might as well just throw in the Chargers.

    The fans in Oakland should be furious.

    The Rams move was bad but somewhat understandable, at least there was a history there - the Rams were an LA team until 1995.

    The Chargers were a team that NOBODY wanted in LA. They had a real fan base in San Diego and threw it away for a town where nobody cares about them AT ALL. Dean Spanos is the dumbest owner in the NFL.

    LA has proven over and over that they aren't a football town and just don't care, even if you're winning.

    Did you see the stands in San Fran? Wow.

    California hates pro football.

    I live in Southern California. I didn't want either team. Now I get those games instead of the Cowboys on TV. Incredibly annoying.

    Yeah it is unfortunate that LA gets two teams but in the end, the NFL and LA just needed an excuse to build a mega stadium that can hold Super Bowls and World Cups/Olympics

    During the second half. Not being political at all, but I'm glad this is starting to happen. The fans are what created this NFL empire. And by not showing up because they don't support the product, fans can also hit the owners where it hurts the most - in their wallets.

    Definition of hatred
    1: extreme dislike or disgust :hate
    2: ill will or resentment that is usually mutual: prejudiced hostility or animosity


    Call me a stick in the mud, but I don't like your characterization of disinterest as "hatred".

    That word is being thrown around way too much for my liking. It conjures up different meanings to different people and is being used (intentionally I believe) to discredit people who simply disagree with someone. Words matter.

    Yeah, LA just does not give a single crap. "Hate" is something else, like if you tried to move the Patriots to give Florida a 4th team or something.

    I think that stadium was pretty full when Brady & Edelman went there to kill the team they rooted for as kids.

    The 49ers suck again so that's the answer.

    When they were winning the stadium was packed like anywhere else.


    That said, in the architecture world the 49ers stadium is known for being a blunder as the firm that designed it didn't factor in the typical game time and location of the sun. One side of the stadium gets completely roasted (we've been having a heat wave the past few weeks).
