Plaschke-Simers video: Are the Chargers the best NFL team for L.A.?

September 27, 2011 |  5:59 pm

Anschutz Entertainment Group hopes to open a 72,000-seat football stadium in downtown L.A. by 2016. On Monday, AEG gave lawmakers a peek at a transportation plan.

That prospect and its ever-increasing momentum is exciting for L.A. football fans, who have been without a local team for more than a decade and a half.

The question becomes, which team would most seamlessly fit in with the L.A. sports landscape?

Of all of the franchises rumored to possibly move here, the Chargers are the only team among those whispers that finished with a winning record last season. The move would also make sense economically. Forbes Magazine reported that if they moved to L.A., they could see their value jump by at least $200 million.

Does this make them the best option?

Times columnists Bill Plaschke and T.J. Simers discuss the topic in their new video show, L.A. Loud, moderated by L.A. Times sports reporter Melissa Rohlin.
