Opening of Inglewood stadium delayed until 2020

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...yed-until-2020

So there was more rain than expected for a couple of months, and now the stadium is delayed for a year.
Obviously they did their due dilligence before moving two teams, and noone could predict that something might take longer than expected.
I want a job in the NFL HQ so badly.

By the time it opens will LA even care about having pro football franchises in the city any longer?

L.A. needs waiver allowing Super Bowl in first year at stadium

Quote:
Posted by Josh Alper on May 18, 2017, 2:24 PM EDT

The Rams and Chargers announced on Thursday that the opening of their new stadium in Inglewood will be pushed back from 2019 to 2020, leaving the teams to play in their temporary homes for at least three more seasons.

It also leaves the NFL scheduled to play Super Bowl LV in February 2021 in a stadium that will have only been open for one regular season. NFL rules state that a stadium must be open for at least two years before they can host a Super Bowl, but the hosts can submit a request to waive that rule.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the waiver application will be made in light of the development and there’s history of the league granting them. A waiver was needed for the Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey because the average temperatures at the open-air stadium were lower than the threshold mandated by league guidelines.

Given the league’s zeal to have a foothold in Los Angeles, it seems likely that a waiver would also be granted in this case and that should keep the game in place unless the opening gets pushed back again at some point in the intervening years.

Good question! Friends in SoCal are already bummed that broadcasts will be filled with Rams and Chargers games. They have been spoiled now with years of prime choices of the best match ups each week.

Wonder if Vegas may be the same once the Raiders arrive?

Unless the franchises are contenders, I have my doubts as to whether they will draw the crowds in.

It's the new hotness factor. Give it time.

To be completely fair, that place seats 90+ thousand, and the tickets weren't the most expensive.

Remember the Raiders used to have to put down tarps so they could have sellouts when they played there - and the Raiders were good (for most of it).

Works out to an average of 83,164 for each home game.

LA and Dallas were the only teams averaging over 80,000. There's just not a lot of demand for stadiums that big in the NFL.

And, of course, the Raiders first year in Oakland had about the same attendance numbers as their last year in LA (when everyone knew they were leaving). And their second year in Oakland was lower. And last year, they tried to come back. LOL.

Pretty much. Northern stadiums don't get Super Bowls if they don't have a dome, if then. There is a geographical bias on who gets the game, but it's easy to see why.
