    I just read on the Espn.com app, that Dean Spanos is relinquishing day to day operations to his sons.

    His sons will take over officially though John and AG were running things for years. With this being the biggest decision in Chargers history it's right that the kids make decision.

    My $0.02? It's the best news San Diego could've asked for. AG/John grew up in SD, never in Stockton. They have a stronger emotional connection here than Dean did, see it as more personal than Dean did. LA is always there with it being a business call, but now you have two people making a decision who know and love this city in a way only a native can. This could easily swing the tide even if they don't get the pure money that an LA deal can provide.

    Except, Dean is stepping down so he can concentrate on the stadium issue.

    Then that's not really stepping down.

    He's still Chairman of the Board, he's relinquishing the day-to-day operations.
