Even if they won't yet build a new stadium for a LA team it is the fact that so many high officials in the NFL want a team there so badly they'll move a team there regardless of stadium availibility just to be able to fill that television market. The city of San Diego has allowed the team to find another area to build a new stadium so all hope is not yet lost but we'll see how long they look before someone chooses for the franchise to move them. Start savin for bus tickets man.

For years the city and county elected officials have told the Pens there is no Public money available and to basically F*ck off, after contributing to the 2 new stadiums. Mario and the Pens have come up with this solution, Isle of Capri, and for some reason it's not good enough. A paid off Arena bordering the city to help bring people downtown, in a blighted area that needs a MAJOR overhaul, Uptown or Hill District, what's not to love??
It's a real drama around here Harrah's is saying Isle of Capri is California based ownership,last I knew Mario has a house in Sewickley. Harrah's has "contributed "to Rendell somewhere along the line. They recently had Public Hearings downtown with presentations from the 3 bidders Franco Harrah's group did not even bother with siteplans or anything, the fix is in!! We need public outcry to save the PENS !!
So.....Harrah's and Barden's haven't promised anythin and haven't set up any real plans for a site in Pittsburgh but Harrah's is known to have "donated" to Rendell's campaignin fund and is tryin to make accusations against Isle of Capri for bein too far removed from the area as far as management to be able to properly oversee a project in Pittsburgh. Isle of Capri so far has offered to pay for the full cost of the arena and has set up plans for a site near downtown...if this is correct let me know I'm tryin to get this full story straight. Peace.

I don't think Erie is near big enough a city to support a NFL team. I'll have to check population numbers but I think it's smaller than Harrisburg. As I said before I think PA is full enough with the two teams it already has. Peace.
