All the east coast transplants root for their home teams. Also the Packer fans. Bears fans. Cowboys. Etc.

People from California? Tough to find people that care enough to choose sides. Band wagon is easier if they're watching at all.

Honestly the NFL these days is such a corporate commercialized sham anyway. Low life's like Colin kapernick getting paid millions of dollars to throw a ball around. Billionaires getting free money from broke cities for stadiums. None of the players care what team they play for... it's all about getting the best contract they can until they're bounced out of the league.

America's Team! That's why they practice up the road in Oxnard. I think the cheers were louder last night when the Cowboys did something good than when the Rams did!

Why Raiders? Former LA team.

I thought about including USC or UCLA but they would win easily.

I don't think people in LA are that into pro football. I agree there's a lot of transplants who like their home teams more than the Rams.

Local TV carried the Chargers for years after the Rams left but I really don't see much enthusiasm.

I was amazed at how big USC and UCLA were in socal. Puts the lack of success of the NGL in perspective.

USC/UCLA game was the biggest sporting event of the year in LA.

and yes, transplants bring their affiliations with them. There is a Browns fan club that packed 200+ into a bar in Santa Monica for every game. The Browns!

Lower Alabama? The only pro team I know in the area is the University of Alabama.

LOL. Actually, your post made me look up attendance figures. Cowboys #1 by a wide margin, followed by two other NFC East teams. Most popular road teams? Detroit then Giants then Shawks then Boys. Lions?!?

There are a lot of teams that pack in the crowds because:
1) It's the only sport in town, but probably more like:
2) It's the 'in' thing to do.

It never ceases to amaze me how many folks come back to work on Monday
'complaining' that 'yeah, I had to go to the game on Saturday (or Sunday...)',
like they were dragged into it.
And I mean everywhere, not just L.A.
