Announced as 60,000 but there were no more than 10-12,000 in the stands. I wonder if the Rams use the counter that Rogers use for the Jays and TFC??? And where is all the "bush" league calls on the Rams and the NFL from the media in Canada? Because sure as anything they would do this if a CFL stadium was less than 10% full!!

Seriously?  Do you have a pic?

Nevermind.  Found it.  Yes, you are right, there was NO one there.

A picture says a thousand words or in this case 10,000!
How could they think it was smart to put not 1 but 2 teams in LA?

In fairness they did get torched in the media. At least in the American media.

That's allot of no shows if they're saying 60K sold and distributed.

Next week the Chargers home opener in 30K Stub Hub Centre takes place. Rams at home to the Redskins at the same time.

Will there combined actuall attendance reach the league average?

I think the folks in St. Louis and San Diego will laugh the loudest.

As long as they stay out of Toronto, I'm good.

With expansion teams destined for St Louis and San Diego (and possibly Oakland), to replace the ones that moved, I don't see a team in Toronto in our lifetime.

Check out the attendance for the San Fran game...

It will be interesting to see what happens when both teams move into the same new stadium down the road.  Will either the Rams or Chargers draw better crowds?  Right now in the LA market - USC still rules. Here their crowd against Stanford Saturday night.

The terrible attendance in California is getting lots of attention down south.

The Chargers better hope they fill every seat of their 30 k stadium this year, will be quite embarrassing if they don't.

this is Toronto's NFL stadium once everyone understands the season tickets are $6000 each with seat licences of $2000 to $80000 a pop

1.5 billion CDN for a stadium + 2 billion CDN for a franchise and 1/2 a billion startup capital. Sign me up I'll take 2. Forgot to tell the people of Canada that they will need to pay for the Toronto team and stadium.  It will be Canada's team!

Scotiabank will give them $100 million a year if they allow them to stencil something on the toilet paper. That's a damn good deal.

I sense deep sarcasm - at least I hope I do.

NO NFL in Canada.  Glad these teams are tied to L.A., and the NFL will need to replace the teams in St Louis and San Diego with expansion.  Then off to Mexico City.  

Too bad, so sad, for all those who want an NFL team in Canada - we KNOW who they are.

There is absolutely no expansion team on the horizon in STL.

okie

Same with San Diego and Oakland unless something dramatically changes and new NFL stadiums are actually built in those cities.
