Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers have lack of fan interest……..

What was the owners of the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers thinking when they decided to move their NFL franchises to the City of the Angels from St. Louis (last year) and San Diego (this year).  Given, the situations in Missouri and down the Pacific coast deep in Southern California were not the best, they made the move, but now might regret it.  A new stadium (where both will play) withstanding, were these guys thinking that putting their team in the 18.1 million fan base in Los Angeles should put fannies in the seats?  Right now, and maybe in the future, this could be the biggest mistake an owner(s) in the NFL have ever made.  Fact of the matter, the people in the Los Angeles area are not sports fans in general, and not NFL fans in particular.  A new stadium in the future might not be good enough.  Interest is lacking.  Tickets to both Charger and Ram games this year should be easy to get, and with a joke of a playing venue for the former San Diego team that holds much less than 30,000 seats, embarrassing.  The Rams play in the old  LA Memorial Coliseum, which seats 93,000.  Tickets for the “Battle of LA” tonight were going for $6 face and free if you tried to find one that was being given out by the Rams front office.  (See pictures of the game in this article, via Twitter accounts)  Give the owners of these franchises credit for thinking big and right now, thinking stupid.  That is my take on the situation sports fans.
