    There is no chance this ends well. Don't know how many times the nfl has to try the LA market till they realize people don't care. Glad the mayor of San Diego stood up for the tax payers. Nfl and the billionaire owners need to start paying for the majority of their stadiums.
    Bring the Oilers name back to Houston

It's odd because the football stands and part of the field still remain because they are a national landmark, the location of JFK'S last commencement speach. I've always thought the arena is a blight and they should've rebuilt the football field there.

    The new logo looks like something a sixth grader would draw on the back of his Math notebook while bored in class.

    Or sell the teams to the communities who pay for the stadiums like GB did.

    People out there do care...for USC and UCLA.

    History is going to repeat itself because nobody in the NFL cares to learn from it.

    The reason that Al Davis moved the Raiders into LA was because he believed that the NFL was going to shift to a pay-per-view broadcast format, and he figured that he could cash in by being in the 2nd largest TV market.

    Of course, that never materialized. The Raiders couldn't muster sellouts either, even though they were good enough to win a Super Bowl.

    The Chargers are not anywhere near that good, and the fans are not going to pay a mint to make up for playing in a 27,000 seat soccer stadium for two years.

    Just did some reading on the Aztec Bowl; built by the WPA in addition to the Kennedy connection you mentioned. Hell of a missed opportunity to remodel/expand and remain on campus.

    As a SD native, I hear ya. Truth be told, I've been mentally distancing myself from the Chargers (and the NFL) for the last few years. The move just seemed too inevitable. This stings a little, but I say good riddance to them.

    I wonder if Orange County would have been a better compromise. Or, the Spanos and city of San Diaaago could have came to an agreement to completely renovate Qualcomm to almost new for $500 million and relocate temporarily.

    Would have probably been better alternatives.

    The new logo looks like 1960s Batman show graphics.

    It's old. It's on a condemned waste site. It's falling apart and is probably no longer safe.

    The Chargers have known that they were leaving San Diego since early November, and this is the best that they could muster? Their big reveal is a lame, ripped off logo and a silly ass "Fight for LA" slogan that doubles on giving the finger to San Diego.

    Teachers caught $#@!ing their students put together better PR campaigns than San Diego did here.

    Spanos wanted a new taxpayer funded stadium, so he moves to pay rent at another billionaire's privately funded stadium?

    Seems like all the stadium talk was just a charade.

    Oh, and to Spanos from a native Angeleno: Get. The. $#@!. Out.

    from what i've heard, spanos kids don't want to keep the team, so they're trying to increase the value of the team quickly so they can sell. That's why they don't want to spend their own money on a stadium

    and supposedly according to one source (that they're listening to but is almost certainly bull$#@!) the value of hte team goes up by $2bn if they move

    The first ever NFL game I went to was Dolphins at Chargers MNF in 1993 at Jack Murphy. The Natrone bomb went off and scored 3 td's against the Marino-less Dolphins. I used to shag footballs as a kid during some of their OTA/minicamps during Junior Seau's heyday.

    I wouldn't call myself a Chargers fan anymore but still sad to see them leave, especially to a place where they will be even less relevant.

    Actually, there's talk of SDSU purchasing the site, for a small stadium and a campus annex.

    From the Onion 2005.

    NFL To Move All 32 Teams To Los Angeles

    NEW YORK—National Football League commissioner Paul Tagliabue announced Tuesday that, after over a decade without a football team, Los Angeles would become the home of all 32 NFL franchises by 2010.

    "The league has met with Los Angeles city officials several times over the past few years in an attempt to bring a football team to the nation's second-largest market," Tagliabue said in a press conference held to unveil the NFL's realignment plan. "I'm happy to announce that we have finally reached a decision: Every single NFL team will be relocated to the Los Angeles metropolitan area over the next five years."

    "Los Angeles is a perfect football city," said Gene Washington, the NFL's director of football operations. "It's a mystery to me why no team has been able to make a go of it here during the modern era, when places like Pittsburgh and Green Bay enjoy rabid fan bases. Obviously, the solution that has always eluded us is to move the most popular teams here. I'm sure the die-hard followers of the Glendale Steelers and the Orange County Packers won't abandon their teams over a little thing like geography."

    "Plus, the intricate L.A. highway system will cut team travel time by almost 25 percent," Washington added.

    Moving the team to LA immediately raises the value of the franchise, not as much as a sweetheart stadium deal of course

    4. "I have a great idea for a logo, guys! It will be two interlocking letters with the second letter slightly lower and to the left of the first letter. I haven't checked to see if its been done before but I'm sure it will look awesome"


    Number 2 is truth!

    The Utah Jazz



    On a serious note, the NFL will have a team on the moon before San Antonio

    and supposedly according to one source (that they're listening to but is almost certainly bull$#@!) the value of hte team goes up by $2bn if they move

    and we have a winner!

    $#@!, the Chargers logo was the only thing about the franchise that was worth having.

    I stopped caring about the NFL when the oilers left. I now watch the playoffs and an occasional regular season game. My only rooting interest is cheering for former horns and against the texans for their genericness and ineptitude. I haven't missed it and I don't think you will either.

    The Rockets were in San Diego before the Clippers. Neither team lasted very long in San Diego. I remember going to San Diego Clippers games at the Sports Arena as a kid.
