NFL needs to re-name and re-brand both franchises in LA.

...why would you rename the Los Angeles Rams? All they need are their old colors back that everyone wants, not this jury-rigged navy and white because they're too cheap to commission new uniforms.

The Chargers, it doesn't matter what they're called, no one wants them there. They gotta get out.

You rename the Rams because the name has been a loser forever. And they are awful now. No one wants a piece of shit franchise that sucks, they would much rather have a "new" franchise that sucks.

I actually agree with you, and I think pretty much the entire NFL including the other owners agree with you too. I don't know how possible it would be but they need a new owner who can get them back there some point soon. The NFL just couldn't really say "No" to the bad decision making.

They did it to themselves by framing the relocation vote as being Chargers and Raiders or Rams and Chargers, and the Rams only got added on because Jerry Jones forced it on everyone. They all wanted to look out for the Spanoses because the family has been in the club so long (and unlike Al Davis, hasn't been a colossal pain in the ass). I think a lot of the owners figured that San Diego would cave in and give the Chargers a free stadium. Then they didn't, and the Chargers waited until the eleventh hour of their window to relocate. Now the NFL is facing down the worst fan apathy, if not antipathy, since the Oilers played at the Liberty Bowl. This is actually way worse because of how social media and regular media have changed in the last twenty years. Everyone everywhere is piling on about how shitty this looks.

Not seeing it. Whatever problems there are with the Los Angeles NFL market, which are many, wouldn't be addressed by giving the Rams a new name. They'd still be a Stan Kroenke franchise and everyone would know they're still the Rams.

They weren't. They were named the Rams though.

The NFL will let the Chargers hang out in Carson for a few years and then they'll liberate them to Europe to be the second European team along with the Jaguars.

That 9am Eastern TV slot and the idea of a quadruple-header each week is too much to pass up. But to be consistent, they need two teams so that one is always at home.

Carson is just laundering to get it done.
