The NFL’s march to Anaheim, figured to be a key cog in the Chargers’ future in San Diego, might not be so easy, the Los Angeles Times reported today.

The paper reported that a number of Anaheim City Council members have questions about a plan to have the NFL buy land in the city, build a stadium and redevelop land around the football complex. They want an agreement with a coalition of worker and community groups for any development, citing the construction of Petco Park as an example of how such community benefit agreements can ensure that sufficient wages are paid and that local workers get preference on construction jobs.

This comes as NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue prepares for a trip this week to LA and the OC to meet with business leaders and gauge the areas’ interests in hosting an NFL team. The nation’s second largest city has been without a pro football team since the mid-1990s.
