L.A., City of Idiocy (I mean Industry), the NFL and Pavlov

"Here we go again" Ronald Reagan

The NFL and developer Majestic Realty Company have announced their plans for a new NFL stadium in the City of Idiocy has reached the point where they will begin finding a team.

The idea is that since the City of Idiocy is willing to cough up tons of local Government moneys, it's obviously the best place to locate a NFL team. Certainly, believes the Government of the City of Idiocy, when you build a NFL team in Los Angeles, people will pay big bucks to fill your stadium and everyone will get rich.

TWO WORDS: LA RAIDERS.

What has the NFL forgotten in their analysis? They are assuming, in their arrogance, that L. A. is bursting with fans (demand) who will line up to pay rapacious NFL prices. To sit in traffic for hours so they can get to the stadium and buy $10 gourmet hot dogs and beers. It'll work out great, right. It worked out so well in the 1980s for the beloved Al Davis . Somehow, the NFL believes that it will work this time, even though they get clobbered last time.

This proves the NFL is more stupid than a dog:

You can train a dog to heel using a post in the ground called the healing post. You walk with the dog on a leash so that the post will be between you and the dog. As you approach the post, you give the command, and pull in the leash so that the dog's head clunks into the pole, until the dog follows at your heel. I am told most dogs learn the heel command after one run at the post. The only need to clobbered once.

The NFL got clobbered once in LA, and they are again speeding toward the post. Once the people of L.A. yank the leash by forgetting to drop several thousands of dollars each to buy season tickets, the NFL will get clobbered again.

Thus we see the NFL is more stupid than a golden retriever.

In the words of Yogi Berra, "No matter how hard you try, you can't keep people from not coming to the ballpark".

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
