    Los Angeles Chargers?

    San Diego down to its last chance with downtown stadium

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/07/21/san-diego-down-to-its-last-chance-with-downtown-stadium/

    I guess when the whole state is broke it's hard to justify luxury football stadiums.

    They could actually build their own Stadium like the Patriots and Jets/Giants.
    But why use your own money when you can sucker the people into paying for it.

    Their owner is cheap. And he doesn't care if the fans lose the team to L.A.

    I was thinking the same thing..San Diego is one of the richest parts of the country too. He sounds like he's trying to extort some cash out of the State.I love it when they say we don't want to make any threats when that's exactly what they're doing. Let them move L.A.

    This is funny. You guys are taking Florio's word for it? The Chargers lawyer recently met with the Mayor and council to discuss the new stadium. There has been more progress then ever before on this topic.
    http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/2010/may/19/chargers-release-downtown-stadium-plan/


    the title of this one is: Stadium Proposals Gaining Ground http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/2010/jun/22/sd-study-funding-bay-area-vote-key-stadium/

    "Chargers special counsel Mark Fabiani, who has spearheaded the team’s stadium search since 2002, called Tuesday’s San Diego City Council vote pivotal.

    He called the “yes” vote a necessary step forward, but said a “no” vote would have been “a pretty clear message” — essentially a door closed in the Chargers’ face.

    After years of looking elsewhere, Fabiani and Mayor Jerry Sanders support a 10-acre site downtown, bounded by 14th, 16th and K streets and Imperial Avenue. The stadium is estimated to cost up to $800 million, excluding the costs of finding a new home for a bus yard on site and cleaning up contamination once estimated to top $100 million.

    The project may appear on a public ballot in 2012."




    Florio doesn't know squat, and what's worse is that you believe him.

    I don't know..I think Florio is usually pretty good when he's not writing about the Pats.

    Well, this is actually vintage Florio. There's nothing here. As usual, he's just throwing the spaghetti against the wall to see if it sticks. Ownership is trying to give the impression it is doing all it can while quietly implying its hands are tied. The same thing is going on in Minnesota right now, with the Vikings' lease at the Dumpster Dome up next year. Clearly, this is not an economic climate to be asking taxpayers to foot the bill for lavish new digs for billionaire owners -- and yet, here we are. Maybe some of these guys should call up Mr. Kraft and ask him what the big secret is to financing your own money factory.

    Or Jerry Jones. An owner who builds his own stadium adds lots of value to his team.

    Mass taxpayers are not dumb enough to build a stadium for someone who can pay for it themselves. LA area residents are.

    Build it and they will come. I forsee a new stadium in northeast oklahoma city someday to draw in OKC and tulsa fans, and probably an NFL team

    I thought it was looking like it was going to be the LA Panthers.

    L.A. Jaguars.  Jax doesn't want the team, have you ever seen how many seats the close off and STILL can't fill the stadium?  Perfect team to send to L.A., the Chargers have too much history to move up there. I know the NFL is hot to get L.A. a team, but didn't they lose one already?  Or two, actually.  Well, its the Raiders, lets say 1-1/2.
