How close is the NFL?

In this week's Sports Illustrated, NFL writer Peter King spritzes some chilly water on the optimism about a team coming to Los Angeles anytime soon. He cites "influential owners" as saying the league so far "doesn’t like either of the proposed venues for an expansion team" in the L.A. area: the Memorial Coliseum or a new stadium in Anaheim. One owner said, "We could be five or six years away from a team in L.A., not two or three."

Picking the Ducks: SI's annual National Hockey League preview predicts there will be a Stanley Cup parade in Anaheim at the end of this season. The Kings? Out of the playoffs.
