    I hope its not, but I am at the point of not really caring too much if they aren't on TV.

    Sincerely,

    Sweet, cue all the fans who live in a state or region, where there is only one team, and nothing to do from Oct through May to tell us we aren't real fans in SD for not selling out MNF! :abq2:

    Sure glad many of you are still hot to pony up your tax dollars for a new stadium that can't sell out. :tup:

    Maybe the Chargers marketing team should step up their efforts in the greater Indie metropolitan area to generate some tickets, perhaps offering a free bus ride to the stadium if they buy more than three tickets...

    Well, the same was said about the cardinals. They played in a crappy stadium and were lucky to get 30,000-40,000. They had blackouts over consecutive years. Then they get a new stadium in Glendale, AZ and blackouts are a rarity.

    I'm sorry, but I am not sure what is bothering you here?

    Tax payers DO support capitalists gains. That is what we do, the taxes are spent to upkeep infrastructure, provide for the communities, all in support of the economy.

    Further, why should the tax payers NOT pay for the stadium.

    It will not be the Chargers stadium, it will be the Cities stadium. It will be rented and leased out to venues, venues which provide income to the city.

    The Chargers would be one such organization leasing the stadium.

    The rallying cry that the Chargers want tax payers to build the CHARGERS stadium is just a red herring meant to get the people who cant see it for what it is to spout that nonsense to others. More people spouting the lie makes some weak willed individuals believe the lie.

    So what are you lamenting against? Against the people helping fund something that will provide revenue for the city and possibly county going forward? That is the American way.

    It might be beneficial if they don't sell out. No more night games!

    Keep drinking that kool-aid, comrade. Nothing has been decided regarding who will own the stadium.

    The NFL is a monopoly & the owners are subsidized by taxpayer sources. Pretty sweet deal, IMO.

    Actually it has. Please provide one link, just one that ever spoke of the Chargers owning the stadium.

    This is where you're incorrect. The city will own the stadium. Last cost breakdown I saw was :
    $500 million, Spanos
    $200-250 million NFL (wants San Diego back in the Superbowl rotation)
    $100-150 million public (Former mayor Sanders hired a consulting firm to see how this would be paid)

    Problem is now, the city has no mayor.

    If the stadium gets built downtown, just up the road from Petco (as it is projected), you can pretty much eliminate the possibility of any tailgating.

    I wonder exactly how many stadiums still allow tailgating? San Diego must be one of a handful...

    Has anything met with final approval? Until then, the issue is undecided.

    I'll admit that I was unaware that the Spanos family had upped their share. The last I saw I believe it was closer to $300M. If the city retains ownership then it changes the equation a bit. But my overall stance remains - as long as schools are being closed, roads are in crap shape, waste & water systems are antiquated, etc. (and I don't just mean in the SD area but nationwide), I'll be against public funding that assists this monopoly over the general public. I see that I'm in the minority so I'll just let those of you willing to fund this over projects that benefit everyone have the floor.

    Just wondering, which game will the Chargers be wearing the alternate powder blues?
