I read up on the situation with Joey Bosa's holdout. It looks like the Chargers are trying to buck a precedent of where there is either or in some cases both a offset language or the full signing bonus in the rookie year. Bosa wants one or the other, the Chargers don't want to give him either. This is not a unique issue for the Chargers with rookies. Everyone remembers the Eli Manning power play but also Quentin Jammer had a long holdout with the Chargers also.

Bringing this thread up to date since it has been a few months since this thread was updated. This was the Chargers' last game in San Diego. They could move to Los Angeles next year depending where they opt to move.

After finishing the 2016 season with a 5-11 record, the Chargers have fired head coach Mike McCoy.

I wonder which direction the Chargers will take at quarterback in the 2017 season. I think Philip Rivers' tenure with the Chargers is nearing the end.

Looks as if the Charges will be moving to Los Angeles for the 2017 season.

Such a shame another NFL franchise will be moving.

I bet Stan hopes that the Chargers are around long enough to pay off the new stadium.

I don't get L.A. supporting two teams. Especially the Chargers with cheap ownership, trades away good players etc. Even here we don't sell out games I can't see it working.

Greater Los Angeles has over 15 million people. That's over twice as many people as Houston. Over three times as many people as Boston. Over four times as many people as San Diego. Over five times as many people as Pittsburgh. Over six times as many people as Indianapolis.

What's not to get?

If the Los Angeles Chargers and the Los Angeles Rams sell out all of their combined home games, that's a quarter million less than the two flippin' NHL teams.

Yes, two NFL teams in the Los Angeles area can sell 80% of the tickets that two NHL teams sell year in and year out.

Los Angeles has the stadium (or will, in two years). It has the luxury boxes, which is where most of the money is and, yes, they will all be sold out for every game.

Again... what's not to get?

It's not a matter of liking the move, liking or disliking San Diego or Los Angeles. It's just matters of business and logistics, and given the population base and the new stadium, it's a no-brainer.

Professional sports only pretend to be tribal entities. It's their public image. But it's all a charade. They're as mercenary as any business. And nine times out of time, a dollar in another city beats ninety-nine cents in the town they've spent decades telling you is the greatest town on Earth.

Personally, I think the city of San Diego has its priorities straight on this one.

It's going to be weird calling them the LA Chargers. I'm wondering if they keep the Chargers name or will they change it? Also thought I read something awhile back that Phillip Rivers didn't support the idea of having to play in LA. Do you think Rivers will ask to be traded now that the Chargers are in fact moving?

Good points! Time will tell.
