Why Not Crowdfund an NFL Team for LA?

On the way back from my always-incredible annual trip to Austin for SXSWi I was chatting with a couple of comedians about how awesome it is to have a good football team in my hometown with the Houston Texans. As I reminisced of childhood memories of having the Houston Oilers taken away, one of the comedians brought up how sad it was that there is no NFL team in Los Angeles. We all agreed.

Then he said: "Why don't we do a kickstarter project for an LA Football Team?" 

We all laughed. (These were some funny comedians). 

But then, I asked him: "Why not do a kickstarter project for an NFL team for LA?"

I was serious. 

So I emailed a few smart friends about it, and there don't seem to be any obvious ungetoverable problems besides the cost, reaching millions of people who love the NFL and LA, some regulatory stuff, getting a stadium...logistical things. 

One of my favorite things about SXSWi is that you get to meet and learn from some of the most innovative and passionate people in the world. One of those people, Elon Musk, was a keynote speaker at one of the few sessions I made a point of attending. 

When asked why he built Space X, which has already sent ships to outer-space (!) he said: "Because NASA was taking too long to get to Mars."

If you are like me and love Football and LA, you probably feel the same way about the NFL. They are taking too long to get a football team to LA.

So I ask you: Why Not Crowdfund an NFL Team for LA?
