The NFL is officially coming to Inglewood! The NFL has decided on the relocation proposal from Rams owner Stan Kroenke which potentially will include the former San Diego Chargers at the soon to be built, Inglewood Stadium site. If the Charger opt out of the relocation to Los Angeles, the Oakland Raiders may take the place of the Chargers and make their way back home to Los Angeles by way of Inglewood. The decision came after an initial 20-12 vote which the Inglewood proposal lead. The second round of voting was akin to a close presidential election, with writers, and radio personalities, keeping fans on pins and needles waiting in the midst for a decision. The final vote was convincing 30-2. 


The question now, is what will Chargers owner Dean Spanos decide. According to reports, he has the option to bring the team immediately, or bring the team in a year or two. 


Los Angeles has been without a professional football team since the 1995 season, and with two teams returning to the LA market, a 20 year drought without professional football will finally be lifted. 


According to the LA Times, "The Rams are expected to play temporarily at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum. If the Chargers join them, it’s unclear where they will play, though the NFL sees Angel StadiumDodger Stadium and even the Rose Bowl, which declined last year to bid on hosting a team, as potential options." 






Rams fans in Southern California are rejoicing.
