The Super Bowl is scheduled to be held in Los Angeles in 2021. That's the championship game for the 2020 season. Thanks to construction delays, the Rams and Chargers will play their first season in the new Inglewood stadium in 2020. See the problems there?

The NFL, Rams, and Chargers can do all the planning they want. They can look at traffic models. They can look try and figure out gameday issues. They can even say that 16 games plus preseason and (hopefully) playoffs will help the league figure out all the kinks before the biggest sporting event in America is played in the new stadium.

That's a concern. Super Bowls aren't planned in a year. There is an entire process. The NFL recognizes its a process which is why cities can not host Super Bowls if they just got a new stadium. The Super Bowl is in Minnesota this year, the team opened up it's new stadium last year. Atlanta will open up its new stadium this year, they have to wait two years to host a Super Bowl. The NFL has to issue a waiver if the Super Bowl is still going to be held in Los Angeles. Time matters, experience matters, planning matters, and the Rams and Chargers are in a tough spot if they want to host the big game in 2021.

Construction continues on the Inglewood football stadium . Brad Graverson/Staff Photographer. Today, the streets of Texas’ cosmopolitan coastal boomtown of Houston will be lined with limos en route to Super Bowl LI. The city has its issues . Good jobs are scarce.

The Inglewood project for the Rams is costing an estimated .6 billion and led to the awarding of the 2021 game. Why is the league so intent on rewarding new stadia construction with the vaunted prize of hosting a Super Bowl ?

The NFL needs to look at all options as soon as possible. Any further delay could be catastrophic in terms of planning. Imagine if there was another delay in 2019. The easy answer is well move the Super Bowl, but again it's not that easy. Cities need to plan. Security measures need to be put into place. The decision would have to come earlier than that.

That's why L.A. could be in danger of losing the Super Bowl now. The safest move would be to move the Super Bowl to Tampa in 2021, award the 2022 Super Bowl to Los Angeles and then the 2023 Super Bowl to Las Vegas. It allows the league, cities, and teams to plan. It doesn't punish the Rams and Chargers, and allows the team and city to have one full year under its belt before it hosts the game. It just makes sense. Let's see if it happens.
