Some football fans are so starved for NFL action that they'll sign up for tickets to watch a team that doesn't exist play in a stadium that hasn't been built.

John Semcken of Majestic Realty Co. said Monday that the stadium website has received more than 105,000 requests about general admission tickets, 36,000 about club seats and 3,200 about luxury suites. About 75,000 seats are planned.

Ed Roski Jr., CEO of Majestic, has said he will not begin talking to teams until after the Super Bowl. Roski said the San Diego Chargers, Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings, Raiders, San Diego Chargers and Rams are considered candidates.

Majestic began gauging demand and seeking support about a year ago. Semcken said demand spiked after Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a bill last month clearing the way for construction in the Los Angeles suburb of Industry.

Semcken said tickets won't be sold until Majestic convinces a team to relocate to the area.

You have to show your support somehow, so the website has a prominent "Show Us Your Support" link on the homepage. That leads to a form on which you can express interest in tickets, job opportunities or business opportunities.

Los Angeles hasn't had an NFL team since the Rams and Raiders left in 1994.
