    all great stuff

    I could see them being welcomed back warmly by the community. But with anyone named Spanos in the ownership group? Forget it.

    Perhaps if the rumours about the Chargers returning to San Diego are true and come into fruition, they might postpone the demolition until a new one is built there. Or worst case scenario, play a couple seasons in that soccer stadium in Carson until Qualcomm is renovated or replaced. I know that usually takes at least a couple years.

    A lot of people aren't old enough to remember, but the Murph was a great stadium before they did the '97 addition, which ruined the view to the east and destroyed the aesthetics of the place, and all we got out of it was two Super Bowls, the ticket guarantee, and a bunch of TV blackouts when we were left with a stadium with 10,000 too many seats for our market.

    Tear down the addition, return the stadium to the 60,000 seat range, restore the views, refurbish the remaining parts, and there's no reason the old girl doesn't have another 40 years in her.

    Why they already have stated the stadium is coming down after the college football season is over and the college games are going to Petco.
    Because it is a massive financial drain to taxpayers now and being replaced with a soccer venue sometime in the future which is far cheaper to run and better rate of return to the city.
    Unless some Billionaire forks over $2 billion no stadium is being built.
    A lot of folks are mad but why build a stadium for fans of the Steelers, Raiders, Cowboys, Rams to take over it is not a good investment and is a bad way of showing off San Diego on tv.
    San Diego needs a new arena, and a soccer stadium more than anything.

    That may be the "best" compromise. I wish I had the billions & charisma to sell a return. I love the city, and with the right plan they could reclaim the fan base.
    First step is getting rid of every Spanos connection. I wouldn't let 'em sell hot dogs at this point.

    Of course it would be the best compromise. Why Spanos and company or the city of San Diego never thought about that boggles the mind.

    LDT needs to put an ownership group together.

    Will there still be an NFL after the 2018 elections? Can the former football league, now a neo-socialist political party, survive when its cash-cow anti-trust exemption is stripped away?

    don't see it happening can you imagine massive lawsuit by Spanos over this . Until I hear it from Fred Roggin, Jason Cole, Vinny Bonsignore, Jason La Canfora , Mike Florio, Adam Schefter this is all smoke.
    Bonsignore and Roggin just a couple weeks ago was saying how great things were with the Chargers and they were already working with how they were going to do things in the new stadium.
    That they had no intentions of accepting a move back or forced move another city in the LA market that they would sue everyone involved and keep that going for a very long time if that happened.
    Best thing to do is Rebrand the team bring in an expansion team to
    San Diego and have a privately funded stadium for that area that is the best outcome.

    The LA team rebrand and a return of the San Diego Chargers via expansion also via Cleveland Browns arrangement would probably be the likeliest of scenarios. But if Spanos sells the team to someone who'll move it to San Diego, the lawsuit wouldn't even happen. If his team continues the way they are attendance wise in LA, then I heard San Antonio is a city waiting in the wings for a team. The Rams could have the LA market all to themselve

    One thing should be said at this point. The whole San Diego bashing, non supportive town etc is being exposed for the fraud it is. The Chargers are the same shitty team in LA and LA is going to show the Spanos clowns what they think of mediocrity as well. And if Spanos starts talking about relocation, going to San Antonio etc, in other words the same bullshit pulled in S.D., he is going to be looking at 12,000 people in the soccer stadium. As for shinny new stadiums being gifted by cities, we have probably seen the last of that anywhere. Schools, healthcare, city infrastructure, pension issues etc. will never allow 2 billion to be directed to billionaires anywhere.
