Lots of questions about this proposed downtown NFL stadium.

It already has a name, Farmers Field, and a place, space taken up by the Convention Center's old West Hall. But there are no blueprints yet, and its potential environmental impacts are just this week starting to be discussed.

And who's going to pay $86 million a year in bonds that will pile up as the dust clears. Steve Lopez has answers. Maybe.

Anshutz Entertainment Group, the folks behind Staples Center, say their stadium plans will be fully aired in public and that every question will be addressed. They told us not one cent of taxpayer money will be buried beneath the venue.

Lopez, the Los Angeles Times columnist and Robert Downey Jr. double, will take a look at the NFL stadium plans for downtown tonight on KCET's SoCal Connected.

“Political Football” airs at 9 p.m.

We're told Lopez weigh the pros and cons — thousands of jobs versus using public bonds and land — of getting the NFL back in the city.

Take the ball, Steve. We'll be watching.
