    Okay this makes absolutely NO sense whatsoever.If true,then WHY did they give them the freaking option to move there in the first place?:cuckoo::rolleyes:



    It's not just the owners, either. The league office is "beside itself" over the Chargers' move.

    I think you're missing the point here of the thread. That would make sense if I asked WHY the chargers moved to LA but thats not what i said,what I was asking is WHY are the owners all of a sudden mad at chargers owner Dean Spanos for moving to LA when THEY are the ones that gave him permission to do so in the first place.Its crazy.:cuckoo::rolleyes:

    I know .....my position is they wanted to generate more money and the chargers did the move beofre the owners thought this through.

    The NFL is a scam....no matter what and no matter who they always get the game out.... total BS

    This too shall pass.

    Knowing that the owners want him to turn tail and go back you know I am thinking he will do just that,just not this season is all. I think after if not this year,then after the next season after playing in stub hub,when they draw a measely 11,000 fans there in carson,that he will be too embarrassed to want to take his team into Inglewood knowing he is only drawing 11,000 fans or so.:lmao: especially after reading this article this really makes me believe he might do just that.:lol:

    The NFL team that might move to San Diego

    PLUS these are excellent points as well someone made recently.:thup:

    But where things are now is such that The Los Angeles Chargers are, to put it mildly, a mistake. The NFL's really screwed this one up, and for several reasons.

    First, San Diego Chargers fans aren't so rabid that all of them are going to drive up the 405 to see the LA version, and because the majority of them are pissed off with Dean Spanos. Second, there's no market study to support the idea that people in LA want to see the Chargers. Third, between St. Louis (which had the Rams until last year) and San Diego, the NFL has managed to upset about 8 million people. That's 8 million people who are far less likely to watch a league game on television, or even Twitter. Fourth, you have the LA Chargers providing a little competition for the LA Rams in their backyard and in an uncertain market. Couple that with the overall reduced demand to see them play on television and you can see the NFL's problem.

    The trouble is the NFL doesn't see the problem – but it's going to feel it, and right where it matters most. It's pocketbook.:up:

    another great article as well.

    There are plenty of people who wondered whether L.A. wanted the Chargers in the first place. The city already added the Rams last season, and they actually wanted them to com
    The NFL Already Wants the Chargers to Move Back to San Diego
    The Chargers are willingly playing in a 30,000 seat soccer stadium for the next two seasons, which will be the smallest stadium in the league by about 26,000 seats. It's a pretty big indication of their fear for how tough it's going to be to draw fans to come watch them play; no owner would willingly halve their game-day revenue if it wasn't necessary to save face.

    dont want to get my hopes up that the chargers will be back anytime soon but this DOES give me some hope.

    People seem to think San Diego is some small town. They don't realize that it has a population of 1.3 M permanent residents making it the 8th largest city in the US. That's a substantial market. It's also been shown the Chargers will draw big if the team is a contender. This stuff about needing big corporations to buy luxury boxes, ergo San Diego is too small is pure garbage. Anyone take a good hard look at San Diego? North County is becoming OC south in terms of financial demographics and the type and size of companies now with a major presence there is more than impressive. Sorrento Valley, Torrey Pines and the UTC area are booming with high end businesses. The Chargers have historically done a very poor job of marketing, they could take lessons from the Raiders and Cowboys.



    Why would a new franchise buyer stay up in LA where he's in the middle of the pack on what the people and importantly corporations want to spend their money. LA will support a winner.....but look at this franchise over the past 7 years. AJ Smith's team was a legitimate contender between 2004 through 2009 and the team was well supported. He was fired after 3 bad years despite 5 good ones prior. Now the Chargers have had 4 bad years and just scapegoated their HC. The FO responsible for this fiasco will remain in place as long as Spanos owns the team.



    Now compare this with Seattle which doesn't have anywhere the near the number of major corporate presence and less than 700,000 residents. The franchise turned around in just a couple years once a new FO came in with a new owner that was committed to winning, not filling his bank account. Why do you think the NFL wanted the Chargers to stay? San Diego is a major market and that doesn't even include the across the border fans.



    A new owner would receive a lot of help from the NFL in returning to San Diego. Besides this is where his fan base would be and he would be welcomed like a hero coming home. The Chargers in LA will struggle badly in trying to build a fanbase. Every home game with the Raiders would be worse up there than it is down here. In fact there are more Bronco fans in LA than Charger fans, by a wide margin.



    Dean would have been better off moving to San Antonio than LA in terms of fan base. But you see, Dean doesn't care about all that. All he sees is an opportunity to more than double the value of his franchise immediately. The only reason you would care about that is if you intend or expect to sell. Franchise value is meaningless until it's sold.

    The answer of course is to get the next "poor" team in need of a new stadium to promise to go there if they get one. Play ring around the rosie like Rams did

    can you rephrase that please? what do you mean by ring around the rosie? the Rams are in LA now and it looks the chargers will be as well this year unless idiot dean comes to his senses and turns back. that doesnt answer the question WHY they approved the move and are now angry about him coming there.:rolleyes: the rollseye sig so you know is the logic of the NFL, not your post just so there is no confusion on that.
