A "Great Sports Town" and Its Trouble with Football

Hosted by

This year's Rose Bowl decided the championship of college football. In next month's game, USC and Michigan will be also-rans--and the NFL has been gone for 12 years.  The Pac 10 will again play the Big 10 again next month at the Rose Bowl, but the 93-year tradition is turning into just another college game. Meantime, another, less celebrated, tradition was established 12 years ago. That's when the pro-football Rams left Anaheim and the Raiders departed the LA Coliseum.  Ever since, the National Football League has played hard-to-get with a series of public officials.
