You really want them to go to LA don't you?

I will boycott LA and the NFL if this happens. Other SD Charger fans are doing the same. The team being in LA will be an epic fail. hahahahaha!

I really don't care. I can't afford football tickets.
I don't sit inside and watch sports on beautiful Sunday afternoons.

I like the Cowboys because they train in Oxnard where I live. I like Seatle because Pete Carroll is coaching them now.

"How about those Los Angeles Chargers? (The SD Chargers are originally from LA.)"


How about the Brooklyn Dodgers, the Oakland Raiders, the San Diego Clippers (formerly Buffalo Braves), Minneapolis Lakers (5 titles there), The Anaheim Ducks who play in Orange County. LA produced the Angels who now play in a different county. Cleveland Rams?

The Chargers played one season in LA before moving to San Diego.

Having grown up in SD, now living in LA I find annoying is there are many here who assume LA will have it's pick of just about any team once the stadium is done. For whatever team ends up here, I feel very bad about the fan base of that franchise, like I do for those LA Rams fans.

There are some families in Brooklyn that still can't get over the move.

How sorry?

If you were the owner and staying meant making $1M/year and leaving meant making $10M/year, what would you do?

Remember the golden rule: He who has the gold, makes the rules.

Sorry for the Fan Base, Not the owners. I understand the golden rule of money rules all. Sucks for small but loyal fan bases though. Jacksonville will never bring the money and hype that LA can. Actually there are not that many cities anywhere that can bring that $$.

Which is why it is so odd that the Rams and Raiders left town.
