Listen: Los Angeles, Chargers, Los Angeles Times discussed on The MMQB Podcast with Peter King
"One team in Europe, two teams in Europe or zero teams in Europe. I like your theory that there will be one team in Europe. That's, that's. I think that there'd be one team in London within much much sooner than ten years. I think the real question is how many teams will be in Los Angeles. You think wait a minute, you think one team might leave the Angeles. Just I think that the league has an issue here. They need to. And you know, the Rams are very connected in Los Angeles. I think the chargers are doing what they can, but and I'm not basing this on any. Intimate knowledge that that there's something foot I, I can't. I. It's just something you see coming down the road. I get it. It makes a lot of sense. I'm gonna ask you this question in a different way. Somebody made the point to me after I had heard that the titans and chargers sold seventy five thousand tickets in three days for their game in London. This weekend, and this person who's in the NFL said to me, you know, it's kind of funny. We would not have sold anywhere near that in either one of the markets where they call home. So my question is, would the chargers have sold out Carson for this game this weekend. I don't believe they would have and how many seats are their league. Twenty seven thousand. And you know, that's the thing. If you if you had the Packers coming to LA raiders come to LA the Steelers coming to LA you're going through that easily. But some of the teams like Jacksonville, like the tight, like the Texans, basically anybody in the AFC south among other teams around the league, you're not. You're not gonna be able to to sell the seats all of those seats. And we're talking twenty seven thousand. So it's definitely an issue, and the chargers are an excellent team and and that's almost more damning how good they are. So same, I'm gonna. I'm gonna be an. I'll end with this Kate, you had a tweet about a year or two ago that I'll never forget. It was so vivid that the campus of the. The university of Oregon is basically the exact same size give or take two or three acres as the campus of the new football stadium and complex in Los Angeles. So for people who don't have an idea of what that means in what it's going to be like, what is this new Shangri law of football going to be like in Los Angeles. One more relatable stat. It's three and a half times the size of Disneyland proper all that. So people doing no, it's it is going to be phenomenal. I mean, if you stand at ground level look across, it's basically as far as the I can see, it's gonna be a low, slow stadium with with a roof, although open on the sides, it's going to be and it drops down hundred feet into the ground. So it's gonna be sort of a low profile more of a low profile stadium and ultimately a win. They finish all the phases if they do in fact finish all the phases, the shopping and the residential while stadium and performing center, it's going to be well, north of ten billion dollars invested in that area. I think gonna shift the center of gravity, certainly Los Angeles, but possibly on the west coast. The number of events. This is gonna hose, whether it's the opening ceremonies of the Olympics closing ceremonies, whether it's a World Cup of whether it's getting the fine of four back in California and specifically in Los Angeles NFL network being there. I think it's gonna. A new standard for sports campuses and complexes, Sam farmer Los Angeles Times. Pleasure to have you. Thanks for your knowledge.
