What I've heard is that for the LA thing to work right they need an AFC and and NFC team.
The Oakland thing is the same as baseball. They need to be south of SF not north (ie San Jose) for NorCal to work out.
Why does LA need two teams to work? They couldn't support two, so they moved, Now they can only have 2?
Why? Don't ask me.

It is no accident that AEG announced naming rights even before a Memorandum of Understanding was signed with the City of Los Angeles, let alone a Disposition and Development Agreement. The NFL and Roger Goodell have viewed AEG’s downtown Los Angeles stadium as a viable option since 2009, when AEG began in earnest their behind the scenes push to sell the stadium to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the City Councilmembers. The NFL knew about the naming rights negotiations with Farmers Insurance from the get-go and welcomed the strategic partnership. AEG would not be focused on Farmers Field without the NFL’s blessing.
Likewise, Majestic would not be shovel ready without the NFL’s blessing as well. In fact, the NFL has mandated to Majestic that its stadium allow for two NFL teams. Taylor Talt, Project Manager for LA Stadium, referenced this ongoing communication with the NFL in our discussions. “The NFL has mandated that our plans include the necessary requirements for two teams but our focus in on securing the first team,” he said. “”We are confident in our proposal and excited about the next steps.” And the next steps will be updating the NFL owners next week at a league meeting, where Roger Goodell and the NFL will hear about both LA Stadium and Farmers Field.
