LA fans are some of the most fairweather in the country. The only teams with fan bases that size-wise resemble how big the LA-OC metro areas are, are ones with historically very strong traditions of winning. Lakers, Dodgers, USC football, UCLA basketball... Meh, Dodgers and Angels are almost always in the top 5 for average attendance this decade. Did you watch them play the Royals during the day or something?
The Rams sucked their last 6 or 7 years and nobody followed them, the Raiders couldn't get a stadium deal so they left. The stadium thing is still holding up a team moving there.
