For a downtown LA area stadium, why would it be Farmers field? So random for that area.

So glad they just went with "Farmers Field" rather than "Farmers Insurance Stadium". Much less corporate sounding, and actually kind of fun to say.

I wonder if migrant workers will show up every morning to the Stadium looking for work? Wrong Farmers Field, Amigo!

I'm guessing it's Farmers Insurance.

That's correct. Farmers was founded in Los Angeles and maintains its corporate headquarters there.

I sold insurance for Farmers for about 2 years..Horrible company.

I cant wait for the new stadium to be built but wish nothing but the worst for Farmers in this deal

*OK, my bitter rant is now over*

My daughters went to that school. Their '93 state championship victory was a game for the ages. They scored with 12 seconds left to win 43-37.

Texas had two high school divisions - something like 5A Div. 1 and 5A Div. 2 - and in '96, the QB of the other division's champion was Drew Brees.

$700. Million. Dollars. For a stadium without a team.

Just move the Jaguars already.

If I was the Chargers I don't see why you wouldn't jump all over this. They can stay in SD until the Stadium is finished and keep but expand their fanbase.

I could also see a NFC team like the Vikes or someone jump as well.

What is it with my metro area and stadia?

You have a plan for a cheaper stadium in Industry, with all environmental reviews passed, just waiting for a team to commit.

Then you have a downtown stadium pitched, with a naming rights deal already secured, but none of the reviews even started, and with demolition/site work to factor in.

And all this after the Rose Bowl/Coliseum/Carson/Irwindale/Hollywood Park/Dodger Stadium parking lot/Angel Stadium parking lot indecision that made us lose out to Houston.

LOL WUT?

Difference here is that the requirements were much tighter to secure an expansion franchise. To get a relocated team, it doesn't matter if multiple groups are competing, so long as one of them can actually seal a deal.

I used to drive by that thing all the time (Denton to Dallas and vice versa).

It doesn't matter what they name the stadium. If they can't get it built, then who really give a flying pig's butt? Build the stadium, then get a team, and then I'll care what they name the stadium...

$700M will go a long way towards getting it built. That's why you should care.

If I were the Chargers, that's exactly what I'd do, only I'd continue to have training camp in San Diego and commit to playing one preseason game at the Q every year.
