The Dodgers’ new owners have not spoken to the NFL about building a stadium next to Dodger Stadium and have no immediate plans to do so but are open to the possibility.
Clarity can sometimes be derived from reading between the lines. Which might just be what’s required here.
Mark Walter, the Dodgers’ new controlling owner, was in attendance at Dodger Stadium on Friday, the same day The Times’ Sam Farmer broke the story about NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell setting guidelines for any teams interested in moving to Los Angeles.
Goodell made specific mention of AEG’s design for a stadium downtown and Ed Roski’s plans for one in the City of Industry, but also wrote: "We are also exploring the availability of other sites in the Los Angeles area."
Potential sites, according to Farmer, are believed to be Carson, Hollywood Park and Dodger Stadium.
“We haven’t talked about it or thought about it a lot,” Walter said. “It’s not on our radar screen. I mean, we’re trying to fix this place and get our team running and make this the best experience possible for our fans.
