LA is the world's best sport city in the wolrd. The Rams will be great too
rams complete the puzzle :')
Why? Don't we already have the goat mls team?
Ducks and Angels are from Anaheim, trash ass teams along with the Clippers
>sudden ram fans
Rams are a Anaheim team too
they left LA for money and are back for money
full circle my friend I don't root for teams that cucked me in the open which is why I root for the raiders as my LA team because Al never got to cuck me for money that senile fuck.
You're not a fucking minority or know any minorities and will never understand why the raiders are LA's team
They represent LA more than a corporate brand like the Rams or Chargers ever could
Raiders aren't a corporation - they are blood
I will never understand why you do this when nobody but newfags fall for this
At least I'm cheering for a team that has won something in LA
The Rams have never nor will ever have won shit.
They have nothing to do with Los Angeles. Enjoy your shitty Midwestern team
I bet you also cheer for the Angels and SF Giants
>my dad was a rams fan until they left
>they've come back ad he is ready to be rasm fan once again
I'll keep bandwagoning the pats kek
Do you even know what you're talking about?
LAFC will NEVER, EVER overtake the Galaxy as top dog in LA
galaxy has too much "history" (lel) and titles
>they actually had to answer this
how cucked can one city be?
>all these Lakers fans
Literally in the bottom of the conference lmao. The only team worse than the Lakers in ALL of the NBA is the fucking 76ers.
I guess we superior Clippers fans are destined to be real lonely at the top. How do the scraps taste, fucking dirty peasants? Kobe was fun while he lasted, even Jeremy Lin went to Charlotte, now who do the Lelkers have?
Metta World Peace?
That bum Roy Hibbert?
Top kek, don't make me fucking laugh.
Lelkers suck and so do their fucking barrio bullshit fans.
I, too, remember six years ago. What have the lolkers done for you lately?
Hint: the answer is nothing
Enjoy 2016-2017 with all that """"talent""""
I look forward to watching Randle, Hibbert, and World Peace. What a trio! Staples Center is going to be PACKED.
>moved Dodgers from Brooklyn
>kept the name
>moved Lakers from MN
>kept the name
>moved the Rams from STL
>kept the name
I never use this phrase, but I'd like to see if we can copyright "Meme City?"
>All these bandwagon Clippers fan.
I still remember when the Clippers had a decent shot in 06 but got stopped by the Suns in the second round. There were so many Clippers fans, but when they didn't make the playoffs for the next 5 years, they suddenly become Lakers fans again. The only reason they have any fans is because they're doing good right now but the one thing about the Lakers is they don't collapse like the Clippers.
I've been a Clippers fan since they were half-gypsys in Anaheim. You should go look for your Emergency Clippers jerseys. Don't worry, you have plenty of time because with that sorry ass lineup the Gaykers aren't going to be doing a fucking thing all season besides racing to the bottom with the Sixers.
Why the fuck would I wear a sorry ass Clippers jersey. They haven't won shit in their history. Hell, even when they are about to go to the finals with a 3-1 lead, they blow that shit, and cuck hard. I've been a Lakers fan longer than you've been a Clippers fan. They should have kept that shitty franchise in San Diego.
Why would you think you could ever talk shit on the Lakers as a clippers fan? Jesus I hate both of your teams and spic fanbases but quit meme'ing and enter the reality of 0 (zero championships).
What have the Lakers done in the last 6 years? Win 0 championships, the same amount as the Clippers.
I was just trying to be nice and invite you to watch some playoffs since once again the Lelkers weren't invited. Why are you so tsundere? You can sit next to me, you just have to wear something clippers.
I'm sure its better than sitting at home watching the Lakers lose game after game after game. I think I know a Sixers fan if you guys want to get together and talk about what the best way to lose basketball games is.
Clippers have at least gone to playoffs. You have to be in it to win it. That means the Clippers are objectively the better team. Unless you're autistic enough to believe that you can reach and win playoff games ironically so sayeth the epin spee maymay.
Don't worry, there is room for all you bitter and soon to be lonely Lakers fans in based Clippers fandom. You can sit in the autistic peasants seating, but its at least warm. You wont be left out in the cold muttering "m-muh kobe, m-muh shaq" and sleeping underneath Kazaam VHS tapes.
Oh shut the fuck up you little bitch. No one wants to see the Clippers implode in the playoffs like they always do. This is why no one likes the Clippers, they talk a lot of shit, but they can never back it up with anything.
>haven't won a championship in over a year
>Lakers ratings were still higher than the Clippers despite the Lakers having a worse season
Reminder that literally no one cares about the Clippers.
Also a reminder that it has literally only been a few years since the Lakers have been in the Playoffs.
Why don't the Clippers have their own stadium? Ballmer is one of the richest people in their entire world. I'm sure he can afford to build a stadium for his team instead of sharing one with the Lakers.
They are already winning on the branding front.
Their colors and badge are top notch while the Galaxy looks like some team a soccer mom would want to go see.
Problem is, where would they play? Two stadiums is Downtown would be pretty stupid. Anywhere East of LA would be retarded. Maybe the Sports Arena again (albeit with some MAJOR renovations)? Inglewood seems fairly attractive I guess. I'd probably aim somewhere around Westwood if at all possible.
Literally only a few years since the Lakers won the championship. Think about ALL of the other franchises that have been on a much longer drought than 5 years. A lot still have 0 titles.
Y;all make some points, but everyone needs to chill and remember the Lakers may not win another title for 20 years. Jerry Buss is dead, their current ownership is incompetent, and they will never sell.
Moving them to a renovated Forum (next to the Rams new stadium) would be a great way to differentiate themselves from the Lakers/associate with the new sports image of whatever the Rams bring.
much better, ty familia
A large part of that is the fact that the NBA nixed the CP3 deal and caused the Lakers to make some deals that weren't in their long term interest. Add to that, the Kobe deal which was basically a keep Kobe in a Lakers uniform so that we can sell tickets while they tank. The problem is that deal has limited the Lakers and they won't start to recover from that until he's gone. It'll be at least a couple more years before they can start to regain some part of their former glory.
Most teams "may" not win another title for 20 years, especially with how monopolized winning is in this league with organizations like the Spurs existing. Who saw Golden State becoming this good 5 years ago?
20 years is ridiculous. The next Kobe could be a fucking toddler right now. We have no idea
This is the Lakers though. They have a huge brand in the NBA and the NBA wants them to be good. I could see them "helping" the Lakers out with the draft so that they don't forfeit their pick to the 76ers. Also Kobe is retiring so that frees up 24 million and the cap is only going to get bigger the next couple of years. They can rebuild into a powerhouse, they just have to make the right moves like get rid of Byron Scott, and several of the players they currently have like Nick Young.
If the next Kobe is a toddler right now, then (1) it's still 20 years, because you the wait from high school to the NBA is only going to get longer, and (2) why would the next Kobe play for a garbage team like the Lakers when he could play for any of the other 29.
The current Lakers ownership is, as mentioned, incompetent. They are entering a Knicks-level era of failure.
If by "helping" you mean get them the #1 pick in the draft, then yes, I could totally see the NBA doing that.
But LA already has a team making the NBA lots of money, and you're also assuming the current Laker ownership/front office would make a good choice, or indeed knows anything about basketball. Jerry Buss is DEEEAAAD motherfucker, the team you know and love died with him. Kinda like the Cowboys have sucked since Jerry Jones took over, ya dig?
The Lakers are a much bigger draw than the Clippers. More people watch Lakers games than Clippers games now and the Lakers aren't that good. Yeah it's not going to be a fun ride for the next little while as a Lakers fan but we've been through this before. Jerry Buss was good when he acted like Jerry Jones early in his ownership of the Cowboys. When he let the GMs and executives do their jobs, the Lakers did really well. When he intervened more in personnel decisions, the Lakers did not do as well as they could have. I mean Jerry is the one who pushed for Mike D'Antoni and to make the bets on those deals that ended up going south. Lest you forget, the Cowboys still won three super bowls with Jerry as an owner. It's not going to be easy but it can be better if certain decisions are made in the off season.
>tfw worried the rams will suck and be another strugglng L.A team that others use to mock me about
>tfw not even excited about them in the first place
never really got into regular season football. rarely watched a game that wasn't the superb owl or the 2 games leading up to them.
thought I might be able to get into it if it was a local team but really not sure i can support these hands up dont shoot faggots :\
should i just stick to hockey?
Come late, Leave early....
Just a bunch of attention whores...
Learn to Swim, mothers coming soon!
all this talks reminds me that chargers are moving to LA to apparently be worth more
but spanos is going to pay around 600 million in moving fees , which include helping players move
then another possible 300 million in advertising the team and another possible fee for sharing kroenke world
just to be worth over 3 billion
it just aint worth it when you got no fans
>all these sudden ram fans
disgusting desu senpai
just reminds me I share this board with a bunch of fucking millennials who didn't actually grow up in LA when we had the raiders in LA and rams in Anaheim
At this point you should have either followed the leader in niners , cowboys , or raiders
but this level of "suddenness" in rams fans is clear hopping the border which many of you new age faggots are , border hopping faggots.
You don't get how franchise valuation works.
It has nothing to do with "fans". There will always be enough people who are going to buy PSL's that the regular fan doesn't figure all that much into it.
Merchandising sales are split throughout the NFL, and so is TV revenue
The value comes from PSL sales, naming rights, and stadium revenue. "Fans" are the least of the concerns
Here are the financials
Even SD's best case scenario isn't all that much better than LA's worst case scenario. Take your sport fandom out of the equation and realize that it's a business
And business says to move to LA.
I was a Niner fan who happily joined the Ram wagon. I'm an LA fan first and foremost.
I can't wait to see the shocked faces when the Rams play and its all mexicans supporting the team just like at the rally. The R-raiders are G-ghetto we don't want all their thug fans(mexicans and blacks) at our stadium. kek The Rams are in for a rude awakening
Tfw surrounded by autists
Thinking of buying a custom dodgers jersey with No Rings since
but knowing my luck they would win the WS just to fuck with me
There isnt a better sports city in America. I live half of the time in Burbank and love LA teams. Kings are number one for me but Galaxy, Dodgers and Lakers are all great. Can't wait to see the Rams.
>our faces when we are from the best city in the world
Stay gold, bros!
i commuted from la to fullerton every morning during college. have lived in la my whole life.
honestly feels like everything west of the 57 / north of the 22 is kind of an la suburb.
sidenote: anyone saying the galaxy isn't an la team because >carson is a transplant, or they spent their whole life in the valley and don't get that the south bay is los angeles.
fuck you and the raiders, im from LA and im happy as all fuck to have the rams back.
Actually LA is a horrible sports city that has actually abandoned professional teams in the past and in general it's just a shitty city, lots of homeless, smog, and fucking traffic everywhere at all times of the day. Keep jerking yourselves off and telling yourself how great of a city it is though, as long as it keeps you there and out of other cities.
