It's a discussion that's been ongoing pretty much since the NFL left Los Angeles after the 1994 season, but according to CBS NFL insider, Charley Casserly, Southern California could be that much closer to landing a franchise.

Speaking Sunday on the CBS Pregame Show, Casserly had this to say:

"There's going to be a league meeting on October 11. At that meeting, the owners are going to be updated on the two stadium sites. One is in downtown LA, and the other is in the City of Industry, which is east of LA.

"What's interesting about that site is that it's a 600-acre site which would be totally devoted to football. In other words, you'll have plenty of room for the stadium, parking, entertainment, the "NFL experience." Sounds like a Super Bowl site to me."

Casserly also addressed the league's plans for international games, specifically, how to incentivize teams that might be skeptical about giving up home dates on the schedule.

"At the same [league] meeting, there's going to be a proposal put in front of the owners to expand the number of games played in the U.K. Right now it's one. I'm told it could we could see 2-4 games there. There's also going to be -- and I found this interesting -- a financial incentive for teams to give up home games, and here it is: If you play three consecutive home games in the U.K. … you can get up to a million dollars additional revenue for each game."

Roski's stadium is much better

I would much prefer the Grand Crossing (Industry) site because of I love tailgating  ...  AEG sucks, traffic would be awful in downtown LA.

To the team owners...if you want to play in the UK...start a team there, but leave our teams where their fans are...in the USA.  If you want to take the cheerleaders to the UK and leave the wife home...good on ya, but do you need to take the whole freakin squad? Have your fun, and let us have ours.  Thanks!

One of the hardest hit states by the poor economy, and they want to spend over a BILLION dollars, and HOPE to lure a team to move there?

Ugly, non-symmetrical stadium.
