NFL formalizes panel to assess Los Angeles stadium plans
LOS ANGELES (AP) NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has established an internal committee to review stadium options in Los Angeles and coordinate any possible move to Southern California.
The move was outlined in a league memo obtained Monday by The Associated Press.
It comes about a month after a development group that includes a company controlled by St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke announced plans to build an 80,000-seat stadium in the Los Angeles suburbs.
The proposal that envisions a stadium rising on the site of a former horse track in Inglewood once again raises the possibility that Los Angeles could get another NFL team after a two-decade drought.
The memo emphasizes that the league, not a single team, controls when and where a move can take place.
