CARSON, Calif. -- Chargers and Raiders fans packed the Carson City Hall Tuesday night clamoring to hear the latest news about the bid to bring the two NFL teams to the Los Angeles market.

“The league owners loved hearing this…financial certainty is established with a two-team stadium,” said project leader Carmen Policy.

The $1.7 billion stadium proposal would house both the Chargers and their division rivals, attempting to draw crowds from San Diego to Santa Barbara.

The 32 NFL owners will have the final say as to who will move to Los Angeles, with the Rams also making a bid to move to Inglewood.

Carmen Policy formally pitched the Carson proposal to the NFL owners in Chicago.

“I had the distinct impression that they felt Carson was a legitimate project, it was a legitimate, do-able site and that it was an alternative they now had on the table.”

Twenty-four NFL owners would have to vote for the move to make it possible, and right now no one knows which way the wind will blow.

A final decision is expected before the end of the year.
