The other day someone stumbled across something interesting while searching around the NFL’s official web site. The fan, Brian Sweeney, stumbled upon what appears to be a current page for the Los Angeles Rams. This got NFL conspiracy theorist on edge claiming this as proof positive that the Rams are moving back to Los Angeles. Once the news got out on Monday the page was deleted which added fuel to the fire.
The NFL responded with the announcement that the search actually brought the reader to a legacy page of the old Rams when they were still playing at Anaheim Stadium prior to their relocation to St. Louis. The coding for the NFL’s web site pulls up the legacy team if no current team exists. If you change the “LA” to “BOS” it pulls up the Boston Patriots or “PHO” brings up the Phoenix Cardinals.
Now that this mystery has been cleared up the question to ask is which team will be the first to move to LA? Will we see a joint Chargers-Raiders collaboration in Carson or will the Rams build their “terrorist magnet” stadium in Inglewood?
I find it interesting that all three teams considering a move to LA, which will not happen until after the 2015-16 NFL season, have spent at least one season in LA previously and moved away.
If any, which team do you want to see in Los Angeles?
