AEG Chair Anschutz Not Changing Terms To Bring NFL Back To L.A.

NEW PLAYERS IN THE GAME? In L.A., Sam Farmer wonders if the Guggenheim Baseball Management group paying $2.15B for the Dodgers “will explore the idea of plunging into the stadium derby” by proposing to build an NFL stadium at Chavez Ravine. But even if there is “ample land for another stadium and parking” on the Dodger Stadium site, it could “take years to untangle the traffic, neighborhood, entitlement, environmental and political issues involved with such a proposal.” Still, there is “one big change” since the days of former Dodgers Owner Peter O'Malley's “concept 15 years ago: The Coliseum is out of the game now that USC has the right of first refusal on the NFL.” As a result, there can be “an honest competition in the city, rather than politicians' being obligated to back that crumbling venue” (L.A. TIMES, 3/30).
