    The Ducks have been there since ('93), and are doing quite well even.

    I am opposed to ADDING teams to the NFL because it would dilute the talent pool even further

    San Diego also has less sporting attractions than LA

    Supply and demand. With more demand for NFL players (via increased draft picks), that will increase the number of people who can make it pro, which will increase competition on the college level to compete for those jobs. More teams will only increase the quality of the current talent pool. You are under the assumption that the college ranks is some static factor, when it is anything but. This is why College Football programs now make hundreds of millions of dollars, the level of competition has increased dramatically over the decades as demand to make it pro in the NFL has increased as well.

    That and they've dumbed down the most important position of the game to the point that average qb's(Flacco/Eli/Alex Smith/Romo) are all viable starters and franchise guys. I think it would delute it some, but the NFL wants that anyways, they call that "parody".

    I thought the argument was that LA hasn't brought in any franchises since the Rams and Raiders left, so i was using the Ducks as an example of one that was brought in, not only has done well, but won a Championship as well. So it IS possible for a new franchise to succeed in LA.

    Not sure if you were trying to make a joke, but they call that "parity."

    And parity does not exist when the talent is diluted, quite the opposite...parity can only happen when the talent is more evenly distributed (meaning there is more of it)
