Do we know which 2 owners voted against it? I'd be interested to know.

No, as it will remain a secret vote (which was key to the owners being able to 'ditch' Spanos after all the shows of support for him). I'd say it's a reasonable bet that it was Oakland and San Diego voting against, for obvious reason.

Think Jerry Richardson was dead set against the Rams moving so he would also be a maybe and Profootballtalk reports Mike Brown has never been a fan of the league returning to LA so plenty of voices outside of the raiders/chargers.

The media reports that the Rams video presentation knocked the socks of the Carson project.

Now we will have to see if the LosAngeles market really wants football back and can the NFL somehow fix it for the Rams to have an elite QB by 2019.

I'm not sure this will entirely be the case, although I agree there will be less pressure on them.

It will take away the "leverage" of a lot of teams trying to get new stadiums or renovation costs.Wonder how many of the new home's in the league are as a result of teams getting funding while using LA as a option.

Now we have to see if oakland or San Diego can get there new stadiums built with help from the local councils.

Think the rams are the only winners so far(LA gets a team with 4 winning seasons in the last 26 years,dont think thats much to shout about),will be nice if San Diego get there new stadium but now it only option to move is as a tenants.

Chargers can I'll afford 1 team in LA let alone 2.

If Spanos doesn't take up the LA option, surely Davis, who's raiders currently don't have a stadium given the lease is up, surely takes up the option to move in with Kronke.

So I don't see what option Spanos has other than to work a deal with Kronke, unless the Raiders get a new stadium deal done in Oakland or elsewhere before jan 2017.

That said, I wouldn't wanna move the chargers to LA a year after the rams if I'm Spanos, so id be looking to get it done before March in time for next season
