Although the proposed football stadium in the city of Industry awaits an important, yet possibly disastrous environmental vote in the State Senate, planners are eying what teams they could bring to Los Angeles County.

"The Los Angeles Times declares the San Diego Chargers the frontrunner 'because the Chargers have a window each year to get out of their Qualcomm Stadium lease without the threat of a lawsuit,'" notes Field of Schemes, a sports stadium blog. "The Jacksonville Jaguars, who are blacking out their entire season on TV thanks to poor ticket sales, are considered next most likely, with the Minnesota Vikings, St. Louis Rams, Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders earning honorable mention."

In another post, the blog adds in the San Francisco 49ers " if a vote for a new stadium in Santa Clara fails."
