Are Chargers or Raiders better for L.A.?

ESPNLA has a Hot Button topic that many AFC West fans don’t want any part of.

The NFL took a major step toward returning to Los Angeles this week when the city council approved the framework of a new stadium.

Speculation has now turned to which NFL team could be headed to L.A. The Chargers are considered the favorite to move, while the Raiders are also among the other candidates. ESPNLA is hosting a debate with Ramona Shelburne arguing that the Raiders -- who left L.A. in 1995 to return to Oakland -- should come back. Arash Markazi argues that the Chargers should come to town. There is also a poll where readers can choose which team they'd rather see move.

I know, I know, most fans of these teams (other than the fans who reside in L.A.) cringe at the thought of their teams moving. But it’s a real possibility, so exercises like this are legitimate.
