L.A. council still supports NFL team

10/9/2013 - NFL

LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles city council has reaffirmed its support for efforts to bring an NFL team to the nation's second-largest city.

Tossing a football and sports lingo around the council chamber, members voted 14-0 Wednesday for a resolution saying it is in the interests of both the city and the league to bring a team to Los Angeles.

A year ago, the council approved a plan by the sports and entertainment company AEG to build a $1.5 billion downtown stadium, but construction can't begin until a team is secured.
