After years of cajoling and lobbying, of pleading their case to the National Football League's 31 owners and winning over Los Angeles' political leaders, the men who want the league's next team still have one big question to answer: Why should a little old lady in Fresno pay even a cent of additional tax so Southern California's richest men can buy a football team?

Ed Roski Jr., co-owner of the Kings, is awaiting word from the NFL about his latest proposal to bring a team to Los Angeles: He wants to buy a minority stake in an existing franchise and relocate it to play in a renovated Coliseum. "We've had a number of discussions with them, which they're taking under consideration," Roski said of league executives. "Hopefully, they'll get back to us in a couple of weeks."

J.K. McKay, who spent the last two years trying to convince the NFL to return to the Southland, was introduced Wednesday as president and general manager of the fledgling Xtreme Football League's Los Angeles franchise that will play at the Coliseum. His appointment gives an air of legitimacy to the league, which promises a brand of smash-mouth football and is the brainchild of pro wrestling magnate Vince McMahon.

I saw where Los Angeles' football suitors Tuesday were trying to get a firm--as in love us or leave us--commitment from the NFL, tired of playing footsie. And I saw where Houston's football buzzards were still circling, praying and preying that L.A.'s bid would drop dead.

The Broncos, 49ers and Chargers have opened training camp, and while the Chargers and 49ers certainly need the practice, folks in Denver, San Francisco and San Diego are talking football. Football fans there await the exploits of Bubby Brister and Steve Young, and the pratfalls of Jim Harbaugh.

Thirty-nine days until the NFL's L.A.-or-Houston deadline, and like a third-down Billy Joe Hobert pass, there's no telling where it's going to fall. But unless the NFL plays Eli Broad, a.k.a. Eli Billionaire, for the fool, and he appears to be warming to the role, there are going to be all kinds of twists and turns, beginning today with billionaire investor Marvin Davis' first comments on his potential bid to own a team in Los Angeles.

Read his lips: No football team without more of your money. After two days of owners' meetings here and presentation of a Los Angeles plan to contribute $150 million in public money to build parking garages in Exposition Park, NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue said the NFL will not return to Los Angeles without more of the public's money.

The chant once filled arenas and ballparks in every two-bit town across this great jealous country, a war cry for them, a badge of honor for us. It has since disappeared, along with our downtown parades, fresh banners and bragging rights. The hicks don't chant it anymore, because now we're the hicks, so what's the use? "BEAT L.A. . . . Beat L.A. . . . Beat l.a. . . . beat l.a. . . . " * As the Lakers waded off the Forum floor through heaping scraps of promise Sunday, it became painfully obvious.

This just in. In regards to the prospect of football returning to Los Angeles following a night of NFL meetings here, nothing happened. Further testimony is provided.
