LA NFL Stadium Financial Work, Yahoo!'s Cole Wrong (1 Viewer)

The commish doesn't want a team in LA unless it holds two teams so the league can keep its leverage against other teams. The 'numbers don't work' is just a BS excuse.

I don't think the NFL's on the "two team" track any more. There was some idea two years ago that two teams would help pay for the stadium, but really, that's not the case. One team with a reasonable Seat License program's quite enough.

This is from last June:
Raising the long-held league belief that L.A. is a two-team market, Goodell wrote: "Consistent with our long-standing view, we have made it clear that any stadium seeking investment support from the 32 member clubs should preserve a viable option of being able to host two teams at appropriate times and on appropriate terms."

Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports ran a post which said that an "NFL Source" said that the Los Angeles NFL Stadium deal didn't work. Well, here's an actual expert who made a spreadsheet, and wrote a blog post saying that the numbers did work. Think maybe Cole was being played?
