HBO's 'Entourage' Continues Commentary on Local News Trends -- This Time, a New NFL Team in L.A.

In the "Entourage" season premiere, it was a nod to the food truck trend. In the second episode ("Dazed and Confused") Sunday night, it was the prospect of the NFL coming back to Los Angeles (spoiler alerts coming).

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones (the L.A. native played himself) and other NFL big wigs met with Hollywood's top power agent Ari Gold about selling the league's TV rights. That didn't work out, but Jones had a different offer in mind. "We've been wanting a team in L.A. for a long time," he said. "You may be the man. How'd you like to own an NFL team, Mr. Gold?"

In the only way he can react, Ari, of course, begins to fantasize about it, calling the team L.A. Gold.

In reality, there is a movement to have a Los Angeles team once again. The question, however, is if a stadium can be funded, built and carry a fan base. Currently, there are stadium efforts in the city of Industry and downtown L.A.
