    SAN DIEGO -- The Chargers lost to the Denver Broncos a week after losing to the Cowboys on home turf, just as the team is trying to rally support for a new stadium.

    The stadium proposal is scheduled to be on next year's November ballot.

    The team's record might not matter either way -- the Chargers still have not found a development partner, which is the only way to make the stadium a reality.

    Mark Fabiani, San Diego Chargers' special counsel, said the investor would share part of the more than $1 billion it would cost to build a new stadium and to develop the necessary infrastructure, including new condominiums and traffic improvements.

    If the Chargers find a development partner in time, Fabiani said the team's record should not affect voters either way.

    After losing to the Denver Broncos Sunday a week after losing to the Cowboys, some fans worry voters might not think the stadium is worth it.

    "I vote for the new stadium. I think they need it. They play hard," Chargers fan Claudia Diaz said.

    The deadline to submit a proposal to the City Council is Feb. 8.

    If the Chargers do not find an investor by then, the team will re-evaluate and the stadium proposal will not be on the November ballot.
