So now that LAFC of the MLS has been unveiled and will begin play in 2018, could they possibly play in the stadium built for whichever NFL team(s) move to LA? I feel like this could play into the deciding factor of the NFL team chosen to relocate too.

I don't think for a second that the NFL will consider any benefit to the MLS in its decision.

The LA Coliseum Commission has wanted to demolish the Sports Arena since 2010 to either put in a soccer-specific stadium or an outdoor concert venue.

That's three years before USC officially took control over the Coliseum, Sports Arena and parking with a 98 year lease.

No.

First of all, MLS doesn't play in NFL stadiums anymore. Not unless the same person owns both teams - MLS doesn't want their clubs to be second tenants.

Second, LAFC has its own stadium plan - they're taking over the Los Angeles Sports Arena next to the Coliseum, and hope to demolish it and have the new stadium built by their first season.

LAFC is a total non-factor in the NFL to LA race.

"I used to rub hgh on my summer sausage and run through the okra patch in Minnesota. If peyton used hgh it's like finding out your daddy isn't your real daddy - but for the whole US"

I miss players like Fred Smoot.

Fred Smoot is sports media gold.

He was on the DC CBS radio postgame the last time WAS were in the playoffs..aka RGIII ACL tear game and Fred went back off. He was on Jim Haslett like a flea on a dog.

And he did this interview in 2011: https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/dc-sports-bog/post/catching-up-with-fred-smoot/2011/09/20/gIQAzrHSiK_blog.html

He's great with thoughts regarding RGIII, Jim Haslett, and the Shanahans.

Gase hired as Dolphins HC.

Stephen Ross is the owner who "means well".

Another first time HC misaligned with a headstrong GM, this time, Mike Tannenbaum.

They seem to be getting much younger as reports are that Bengals defensive backs coach Vance Joseph will be hired as DC with Bengals linebackers coach Matt Burke, Bears defensive line coach Clint Hurtt and Cowboys defensive backs coach Jerome Henderson joining the Dolphins staff.

With DePodesta and Brown there in charge of non-football items, Jackson must have again gotten control of the 53. That's not going to end well for Cleveland, again (see Hue Jackson tenure in OAK, especially his Week 17 rant after they failed to make the playoffs).

It would not surprise me if Hue Jackson was the guy to turn the Browns around. It sounds like their new front office people are actually competent. One of his conditions for taking the job was they had to get rid of Manziel and that's what they're going to do.

He was the best OC I can remember for the Bengals (his play calling on saturday night notwithstanding) and the players absolutely love him.

I don't think he got a fair shake with the Raiders, but I think he will with the Browns, which sucks. Another good coordinator leaves and the Bengals still have Marvin Lewis as head coach.
