Being in the media myself I can tell you that market size is everything when it comes to eyeballs delivered and your rate card for advertisements. LA is #2 behind NYC. They call it DMA. Designated Market Area. Therefore having a team or two there completes the narrative with advertisers and more importantly networks that the NFL delivers their product to them in every major market (and everywhere else for that matter).

So even with a fickle fan base the NFL can charge even more since it now covers the market twice over and not having a team or teams there was a major hole in their narrative. In the end it’s always about the money and the NFL is actually not throwing good money after bad – it’s pretty much the opposite.
