About Us

The LAFB Network

The LAFB Network is your home for the Los Angeles Football content that you deserve.

The goal of the site is to feature, analyze, and narrate the great players and football teams of Los Angeles (Los Angeles Rams, Los Angeles Chargers, USC Trojans, UCLA Bruins, Southern CIF), a city with amazing football history and an even brighter future. While we do break news stories, our purpose is to tell stories. Analysis, film breakdown, and storytelling is what we are about. We are professionals, but also fans, creating a voice for the fans. We also provide an outlet for fans to engage with our staff while also connecting with other fans.

We are THE LA Football Destination.

LAFB also provides industry-leading Fantasy Football advice, as well as NFL and College Football betting guidance.

Our flagship podcast is the LA Football Podcast, hosted by Ryan Dyrud, and 2-time NCAA Champion at USC and 13-year NFL Vet Frostee Rucker. It is also part of the Bleav Podcast Network. Listen in as Ryan and Frostee discuss the rich history, exciting present, and the bright future of LA football. With USC, UCLA, Chargers, Rams, and more, they keep you up to date and in the know on all things LA Football, bringing one-of-a-kind expert insight and analysis.

On the podcast Bleav in Spirits And Sports History, Ryan Dyrud (the Don from Bleav In LA Football) gives you history lessons on spirits and sports history.
