Sunday's Super Bowl may mean the end of the season, but that doesn't mean that there won't still be a lot of football talk here in Los Angeles.

Last week, after news surfaced that the St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke bought 60 acres of land near The Forum, a lot of people started buzzing — yet again — about football coming back to LA.

Kroenke's company did not say what that land will be used for but the city's football fans like to keep hope alive. It's been almost 20 years since there was a professional team in this town, and every year since there've been efforts to bring one back.

But the city's tumultuous history with the National Football League makes it easy to understand why some are skeptical about its future. Arash Markazi of ESPNLA.com joins the show with more.
