But Los Angeles? Malibu, Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica, Westwood, Beverly Hills, Hollywood Hills, Silverlake, Los Feliz, Hancock Park, Pasadena, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, Palos Verdes, Beverly Wood and even DTLA are all far from being "shit holes".
Not to mention Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Canoga Park, Agoura Hills, Encino, Studio City, Burbank, Eagle Rock or Sherman Oaks
Yeah, the people make it the shit hole in the case of L.A.. All that great weather and it attracted assholes like bees to honey. Lots of rich people....not sure that's a good thing.
As for a football team, if it were to happen again, the people will kill it (again). I'm not sure an NFL owner is willing to be the owner of the equivalent of the NFL's L.A. Clippers.
But that's just me, it's not a town that's loyal to many things, and football just might not work very well there.
