VIEWPOINT LETTERS

The NFL Drooling? Whom Is He Fooling?

June 12, 2004

In his letter last week, Michael Helwig of Fantasy land, er Canoga Park, suggested that the NFL was "drooling" to put a team in Los Angeles.

He also implied that because we don't need an NFL team, the NFL should make certain concessions for the privilege of doing business here.

Mr. Helwig suggested the NFL buy unsold tickets, build schools, etc. I ask why stop there? Why not a pot of gold on every corner? Better yet, magic fairies to grant us all wishes?

The truth is Los Angeles is unable to support an NFL franchise in part because of people like Mr. Helwig and because the Los Angeles Times has its own anti-NFL agenda.
