Los Angeles Stadium Comes Roaring into North OC
It seems, from our un-lofty perch in Orange County, as if an NFL stadium will not be built in Los Angeles as long as there is a Los Angeles Coliseum Commission, a rogue's gallery of fumblers if there ever was one.
But there are still dreamers who believe they can swing a stadium deal outside LA city limits. The latest incarnation takes us to the City of Industry and its proposed Los Angeles Stadium. As its website proclaims:
We can claim some of the most legendary athletes, successful franchises and storied organizations in all of sports. Fourteen years have passed, however, since the last NFL game was played in Los Angeles. Los Angeles Stadium is a world class facility that will bring the NFL back to Los Angeles to begin the next chapter in our proud sports history.
Los Angeles Stadium backers will try to get their friends in northern Orange County to drink their Kool-Aid at the Brea Civic Center from 7:30 to 9 a.m. Wednesday. That's when the proposed sports complex's Taylor Talt addresses the North Orange County Legislative Alliance, which represents the Fullerton, Brea, La Habra, Placentia and Yorba Linda chambers of commerce.
The stadium is proposed to be buill at the intersection of the 57 and 60 freeways.
