Carson proposal better L.A. solution than Inglewood

Both the Inglewood and Carson stadiums face obstacles before either breaks ground. The earliest time a team could announce relocation, would be the owners meeting in January 2016.

Both or neither stadiums could get done, and Angelinos are aware of that. Still, the current Carson proposal seems to be the better solution thus far.

Even if the Raiders opted to join the Rams in Inglewood, I am sold on the Carson stadium as the answer to the NFL’s problem in Los Angeles. The Carson stadium solves stadium woes for both California teams. It also has more location benefits over the Inglewood proposal. Further, the Carson stadium better provides the L.A. experience.

Considering Oakland seems to be out of the picture, the Carson project makes more sense for the NFL and the Raiders quest for Los Angeles.
