With the prospect of a team or teams moving to the Los Angeles market, the NFL is planning public hearings in Oakland, St. Louis and San Diego as part of the league's relocation procedures.

According to the NFL, the purpose of the hearings is to provide an opportunity for fans and others in the community to ask questions and express their views directly to the league "before any decisions are made" about the moving of a club. Members of Commissioner Roger Goodell's executive staff will be in attendance at the meetings.
