"One or two teams"

The NFL is out to hurt some feelings this year.
A consensus is growing around the NFL that a return to Los Angeles is happening. The questions now are more about which team or teams will move there than whether a team will move there.

Giants owner John Mara says 2015 looks like the NFL’s last season without a team in L.A.

“I think there’s going to be one or two teams playing in L.A. next year — 2016,” Mara said, via Bob Glauber of Newsday. “Maybe a temporary stadium [next year], but I think — and this is just my opinion — that one or two teams will be playing somewhere in L.A. next year. But we’ll see.”
Their business relies heavily on goosing the civic pride and "loyalty" of American cities in order to extract billions of dollars in local and state public funds all over the country. And then leaving those places holding the bag whenever it's convenient.

 Also don't count the highly unstable Saints franchise out of this as a darkhorse contender.
