** History of the National Football League in Los Angeles **

Professional American football, especially its established top level, the
National Football League (NFL), has had a long history in Los Angeles,
which is the center of the second-largest media market in the United
States. Since the 1995 departure of the Los Angeles Raiders and Los Angeles
Rams, Los Angeles has been by far the largest U.S. market without an NFL
team. It is currently more than double the size of any other North American
market to get serious consideration for a team. The NFL and other
professional leagues have had multiple teams in Los Angeles between 1946
and 1994, all of which originally played home games in the Los Angeles
Memorial Coliseum. The nearest team for the area is the San Diego Chargers.

In 1946, the Los Angeles Dons of the All-America Football Conference
started play, lasting four years before folding with the demise of the
AAFC. Also in 1946, the Cleveland Rams became the first NFL franchise to
locate in Los Angeles. The Rams moved to Anaheim Stadium in 1980, and left
southern California altogether in 1995 for St. Louis. The American Football
League (AFL) founded the Los Angeles Chargers in 1960, who subsequently
moved to San Diego the following year. The Oakland Raiders moved to Los
Angeles in 1982, only to return to Oakland after the 1994 season.^[1] There
were problems with filling all of the 90,000-plus seats in the Coliseum to
avoid a television blackout in the Los Angeles area.^[1]

The lack of an NFL team in Los Angeles is an issue the league and the city
