Hosted by

In the search for public money, National Football League owners are notorious for breaking promises — and yesterday's agreement to go back to the Los Angeles market is not yet a done deal.

It's been 20 years since the Rams moved from LA to St. Louis and the Raiders went back to Oakland. Yesterday, NFL owners agreed to re-locate the Rams — and possibly another team — in the LA suburb of Inglewood. Rick Eckstein warns that the celebration may be early. He's a professor at Villanova and co-author of Public Dollars, Private Stadiums: the Battle over Building Sports Stadiums.
