Yes, Los Angeles football fans, professional football is coming back to L.A.

The St. Louis Rams are headed back to Los Angeles for the 2016-17 NFL season. They will likely play in the Los Angeles Coliseum until their new stadium is completed in 2019.

The franchise was founded in 1937 in Cleveland and first relocated to Los Angeles in 1946, where they played until 1994. In 1994, the franchise moved to St. Louis and spent ten years there. The Rams are moving back to Los Angeles for the second time in franchise history.

I love it. theres a sports radio station I listen to that has always thought a team moving to L.A. is a bad idea. I think they think its nothing but a bunch of shopaholics that live there. another reason is I think it would be a threat to their precious Dallas Cowboys. yay L.A.

I've heard rumors about the owner buying a plot of land in LA. But I hope the team does better. Not a fan of football, but living a couple hours south of St Louis, I know Rams fans have had to endure unending agony and there's really not much of a fanbase for them here despite it being their home state.

Rams in LA-(Inglewood) makes sense but I wish the Chargers would stay in SanDiego I guess the city has a year to make Spanos a deal or he is heading to LA also

Great.... as if we needed another team in California. I feel bad for STL fans losing their team yet again.

Not really a big sports person, but I feel really bad for Saint Louis. Now all they have left is baseball

Yeah I forgot about the Blues! But they're trying to get a soccer team going too and it ain't working out

Because it worked so well the first time right?

That aside, I could see this working for a couple of years before LA peeps get bored and move on to a new trend. I only see this as long lasting if the Rams win a lot (lol).

I feel like the Rams belong in LA more than the Chargers or Raiders, I mean they were the LA Rams for almost 50 years before they moved to St. Louis. At least in St. Louis they were able to win the first Super Bowl of the new millennium. "The Greatest Show on Turf" was no joke.

As soon as LA Fans realize how much the Rams stink, they'll probably just go to Dodger and Kings games.

Honestly, I don't see this being a huge success. Especially two teams being placed there. Everyone is joyous with saying how they're returning home and whatnot...but LA has changed since when the Rams left. I still see it being a basketball, hockey, and baseball town.
