I just don't get it. The owners, VP's, GM's and managers are all stupid and don't know how to run an organization, league or franchise. They all pay outrages salaries to lazy, under-performing, incompetent players and yet someone throws 7 billion at just one of thirty franchises. Why aren't the rocket scientists at Covers, that know literally EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING better compensated?

I don't know why the rest didn't post but it was like this. If another team that has to share the market in another sport can garner a 7 Billion Dollar deal it is bonafide, certified proof that if the NFL wants a team in Los Angeles they or the owners can damn well pony up their own money and pay for it. No need for the taxpayers to provide it. Schools and infrastructure are far higher on the priority list, as they should be.

NO FN' SH IT!!! 

Ask the city of Oakland how great it worked out to bend over and take it up the tailpipe from A. Davis last go round,  From what I read, they're pretty much getting down to a volunteer police force and fire department because of that deal.
