Otherwise, the owner of AEG would've been crazy to consider building a football stadium near L.A. Live...
Actually, with the stadium deal ratified by the city, L.A. may own the convention center, but it's managed by AEG.

It is a question, though I'm pretty sure the 2011 plans didn't block the South Hall, but the rally ran down to the street running underneath the skywalk bridge of the LACC, Pico Boulevard, and turned back up the loading area in front of West Hall. South Hall wasn't blocked, which is fine, but it still shoehorns us into one entrance point, one general area for gatherings, and it will choke traffic in and out of the event.
