Committee suggests dual LA site, no Rams
HOUSTON (AP) A person with knowledge of the vote says an NFL committee exploring moving teams to Los Angeles has recommended the combined stadium proposal involving Oakland and San Diego over St. Louis owner Stan Kroenke’s ambitious plan for another venue.
League owners meeting Tuesday in Houston will use that nonbinding recommendation as they consider whether to end a two-decade hiatus in the nation’s second-largest media market. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the NFL hasn’t announced the committee’s vote, first reported by Sports Business Daily.
The Raiders and Chargers have agreed to share a stadium in Carson, California, while Kroenke wants to build a $1.8 billion showplace in Inglewood, closer to downtown LA.
