People may come out to see them at first, and then if they don't win, which they probably won't, being in the same division as the Cardinals and Seahawks, then the stadium will be half full again. Which was part of the reason the Rams left LA in the first place. The NFL is just convinced that LA needs an NFL team, but from what I've heard from friends who live out there, it's more a Lakers and Dodgers town. Plus, there's always the UCLA and USC college football teams(they do have other sports, yes, but I'm just focusing on the football aspect). We'll see how long it lasts. If it does, great for LA, but I'm not convinced that it will.

But the Rams mainly moved because Georgia Fontiere was: 1) from St. Louis and 2) an absolutely awful owner (to the point that their were conspiracy theories that she had Carroll Rosenbloom killed, which is some hardcore fanatical hatred). As for their stadium, well, let's be honest: the Big A was an ungodly hellhole in its days as a multipurpose stadium, and even then, it was before luxury boxes became a major income driver for revenues. Even the Coliseum in its current state is far superior to what it was when the Raiders skipped town, and the Rams will only be there for three seasons. So, financially, the Rams will be in fine shape. And as for the division, let's be clear: the Seahawks are fading, the 49ers are trash, and the Cards are going to need to prove that they can win consistently and reload when their stars start to retire. If they play their cards right, the Rams can compete by the time their new stadium opens.
