Carmen Policy, the driving representative force, engaged by both the Oakland Raiders and the San Diego Chargers to further their efforts for the prospective new NFL Stadium in Carson, California, is continuing to be front and center in news. Policy arrived at the NFL's meetings in Los Angeles on Tuesday bent on ensuring that everyone is fully aware the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers are the real deal concerning their pursuit of a possible relocation to Los Angeles market.
Policy didn’t hold back quickly asserting that that both NFL franchises are "committed to Los Angeles". He continued by announcing that a league vote may very well happen as early as January but will "definitely" take place prior to Super Bowl 50.
Policy was even bolder in his assertion that the proposed Carson Stadium could all be completed and ready to go for the NFL’s 2019 season. He added that a completed new home for either team by 2018 is unrealistic. Many might say the same for the 2019 considering the complexity of such a voluminous project.
But yet Policy remains steadfast in his prediction via his twitter account stating "We are absolutely certain that we will be in the stadium and playing football for the 2019 season." - Carmen Policy pic.twitter.com/xDS7W8Dtlx
To make things even more interesting the NFL and its officials are said to have been seeking viable interim locations that could serve as temporary home fields should the aforementioned NFL franchises or any others vying to move their teams during the time any such mega-structures are being developed to completion. Locations that have been mentioned as a possible temporary NFL venues and homes for the relevant teams are the L.A, Coliseum or San Antonio, Texas.
Policy continued by making predictions that he and his Respective NFL franchise employers are confident that should the new stadium project come to fruition that fans will undoubtedly travel to Los Angeles to continue to follow their respective teams. I wonder if Policy commands a premium in fees based on his ability to see the future.
According to several sources the NFL’s meetings had a secondary purpose that includes updating timelines for St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke's Inglewood project.
