EARTH CITY, Mo. — While the two proposed Los Angeles-area stadiums look to be well ahead of the curve in their potential of becoming reality, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made it clear Wednesday in San Francisco that of the three home markets looking to keep their teams, St. Louis is the furthest along in its pursuit of a stadium.
With each passing week, the St. Louis stadium task force has checked off box after box and though there is still some significant work to do, namely in securing the public piece of the financing, San Diego and Oakland don’t appear to be anywhere close to St. Louis when it comes to putting together an actionable plan. San Diego just presented a financing plan that doesn’t look agreeable for the Chargers and Oakland has yet to do as much as put a proposal together.
