NFL formalizes panel to assess Los Angeles stadium plans
LOS ANGELES (AP) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has established an internal committee to review stadium options in Los Angeles and coordinate any possible move to Southern California.
The move was outlined in a league memo obtained Monday by The Associated Press.
It comes about a month after a development group that includes a company controlled by St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke announced plans to build an 80,000-seat stadium in the Los Angeles suburbs.
The proposal that envisions a stadium rising on the site of a former horse track in Inglewood once again raises the possibility that Los Angeles could get another NFL team after a two-decade drought.
The memo emphasizes that the league, not a single team, controls when and where a move can take place.
