Announcement of a Rams-Chargers marriage in Inglewood is expected momentarily.
Several reports have the Raiders getting at least $100 million toward a new stadium for stepping aside.
There are dozens of reporters here waiting for official announcement, but it looks as if it will be the Rams and Chargers in Inglewod and the Raiders still in Oakland next season.
The Rams’ Inglewood plan has the most revenue potential for the league and got the most support from owners. That left the Chargers with the option to be the second team there, and it looks like they are likely to take it
LA Times reporting that Commissioner Roger Goodell is taking a compromise proposal to the owners and that Rams, Raiders and Chargers are not in the room.
Looks like this could be resolved tonight with the anticipated outcome that the Rams and Chargers will go to Inglewood.
UPDATE: The LA Times’ Sam Farmer has weighed in on the vote. Here is what he said:
Vinnie Bonsignore is reporting that NFL owners have two proposal before them — both involve moving two teams to Los Angeles and both would include the San Diego Chargers.
The first option — as recommended by the NFL’s LA Committee — is Raiders and Chargers in Carson. The second option, Bonsignore wrote, is Chargers and Rams in Inglewood.
Disney Chief Bob Iger wanted a coffee. Dozens of reporters wanted a piece of him.
Within seconds, Iger, who is presenting on behalf of the Carson project found himself surrounded.
He didn’t say much, and remained mum about whether the Chargers will end up with the Rams in Los Angeles.
I don’t really want to get into the details other than that the Raiders and the Chargers are combined and they are both committed to moving to Carson.
According to the Orange County Register, and other outlets, the NFL’s powerful six-member Committee on Los Angeles Opportunities has officially recommended the Carson project with the Raiders and Chargers being the teams.
That had been rumored earlier in the day, given that the committee has at least two owners who have supported the project publicly and have made no secret that they are sympathetic to the plight of Chargers owner Dean Spanos.
One of the pillars of the Raiders argument that they should be allowed to move to Los Angeles is their claim that Oakland officials promised them 169 acres of free land in 2013 and then took it off the table.
Former Mayor Jean Quan, who was in office at the time, says that’s not quite correct.
