The Los Angeles Rams and Oakland Raiders will be opening new stadiums soon, making it convenient for the National Football League to begin a West Coast swing.

The Los Angeles Rams have a new palace on deck, as do the Oakland Raiders, soon to be in Las Vegas. Finally, the National Football League has something other than a tired rotation of East of the Mississippi venues.

I mean let’s be honest: it’s a tried and tired list of destinations the league has peddled for some time now. And yes, I know they’ve tossed Glendale, Arizona (ugh) and Santa Clara, California (ugh x 2) as a bone to fans who enjoy some daylight when a Super Bowl kicks-off, but that will seem small potatoes in the next few years.

Both Los Angeles and Las Vegas are to soon be “cornerstones” of the rotation of cities to host Super Bowls. Which is interesting, as both teams also look to be on the upswing, especially with the Rams turning all the right screws of late.

Best of all, especially with NFL Media making a permanent move to Los Angeles, Inglewood to be exact, the league looks to have a West Coast option that gives exposure to a part of the country they all but left for dead.

With the Rams and soon to be Raiders in what most would concede are truly fan destinations, it’s logical both stadiums would be prime landing spots for not just a Super Bowl, but why not a rotation of the Combine, and certainly the now very mobile NFL Draft.

Again logical, but logic is not always a word that rides tandem with the NFL.

Either way, the Rams, and yes the Chargers, as well as the Raiders look to be teams who’s home cities will be a preferred, if not favorite hot spot for a lot of league business, beyond the Super Bowl and Draft rotation.
