FROM THIS EPISODE

Since the Rams and the Raiders left LA 20 years ago, multiple promises of a return by the NFL have been broken. Recent prospects for downtown LA and the City of Industry have been fading. Now, those cities are suddenly being upstaged by Carson and Inglewood — with plans that actually have real teams attached to them for the first time. Do the Rams, Raiders and Chargers really mean it or are they just angling for better deals in St. Louis, Oakland and San Diego?

Also, can the Ports of LA and Long Beach get their mojo back?

Are the NFL Owners at It Again? 20 MIN, 33 SEC

For the first time since the Rams and the Raiders departed 20 years ago, there's hope that the NFL might return to Southern California. St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke has plans for a football stadium in Inglewood. The Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers have produced drawings of an arena they say they could share in the City of Carson.

Tentative Agreement Reached in Port Dispute 6 MIN, 7 SEC

Twenty-nine West Coast ports are fully open again. The maritime industry reached an agreement with union negotiators Friday after nine months of stalemate. But 13,000 rank and file members won't vote on ratification until April — and the companies haven't formally accepted the new contract, either. Continued uncertainty won't help the ports get back to business, according to Justin Pritchard of the Associated Press.
