So Spanos will be paying a relocation fee of $650 million? His game day revenue is going to take a sizable hit money playing in a soccer stadium that seats less than 30,000 for the next 2 seasons. He's going to have to fight for fans with the Rams in the LA area.

an NFL team could play in an empty stadium and still make mountains of money

besides, the real value of an nfl team occurs when it's sold

I agree, St. Louis will never see the NFL again. Ever.

Charger fans, I would still remain a Charger fan, it's not like the Chargers moved out of state. The Chargers wanted to make San Diego work out, but when the vote was rejected on the tourism tax, that pretty much doomed the stadium project.

It is still only a 2 hour drive to see the Chargers and they are still the closest NFL team to San Diego. Heck I have to drive a lot further then 2 hours to see my favorite football team play.

Yep, the loud, angry voices on the internet keep proclaiming that "nobody's gonna show up for Charger games at Stubhub", which is laughable. That place will sell out if the Chargers are a simply decent team next season. Actually, even if they're terrible, the opposing team's fans will fill up the stadium. I will friendly wager (because we're all friends here) all of you that the Stubhub Center will sell out for every home game next season.


As such I plan to buy season tickets if the prices are somewhat reasonable, will find out in March. I'm pretty sure that the Chargers will go up against the NFC East (Cowboys, Giants, Eagles, etc) and the AFC East (Pats, Bills, etc) next year. So those are huge fanbases and huge transplant populations in LA. The tickets for those games will be in hot demand....and you already know that the Raiders, Chiefs, and Bronco fans enjoy turning road games into home games when they play the Chargers.

Filling a 35,000 seat stadium with opposing Bills fans won't exactly be a good selling point for the L.A. Chargers to be viable in the L.A. market. And yes, I do plan on going to this game since I live in California.

Did you go to the Rams/Bills game this past season at the Coliseum? I was there, tons of Bills fans, pretty cool (they left happy, though I did not).

I am a long time Ram fan, but I can see liking the Chargers as my favorite AFC team. I have seen the photos of the Stub Hub Center and what it would look like for a pro football game. I think that will be a cool venue to watch football.

I tell you, I would rather go there than the Coliseum.

My condolences to those of you who are (were?) San Diego Chargers fans. I really wanted to see the Chargers stay in San Diego; that's where they belong.

Some of my earliest non-Philadelphia Eagles, NFL memories from the days when I started watching NFL games on a regular basis involved watching Air Coryell era Chargers games in the late afternoon on NBC.
