    Basically saying that San Diego can't and won't let the Chargers stay in SD
    Sad I want to keep the chargers in SD

    Well, fortunately it's just another stupid writer who is completely making sh/t up. :D

    Most of this piece is simply Gennaro playing Kreskin: declaring that he can mind-read
    what he imagines the NFL's motives to be...
    it's just one silly hunch after another. There's really no new info here...

    Gennaro merely "connects the dots" (the same way delusional conspiracy theorists do) to reach
    conclusions that a sober person realizes just are unsupported.

    I think I wasted my time reading it, but if anyone else is determined to not to use their time better, here's a link:

    John Gennaro is a forum posting fan like the rest of us. He makes crap up, and spews his opinions as facts as all of us do. Read nothing more than that into it, he has no more inside information on this than we have.

    Qualcomm Will Remain Chargers' Home in 2015

    The team will not be exercising the lease termination clause and will keep working to find a publicly acceptable way to build a Super-Bowl quality stadium in San Diego.

    This is via the Chargers 'information' email I received tonight...

    Just heard mote or less the same on espn radio.

    Interesting idea they were pitching about adding 2 teams both out of la...

    I'm glad that SD is at least still at the table when it comes to the long overdue rebuild talks.

    PLEASE!! I would rather they were San Antonio Chargers before ever la again.

    It's the same song and dance every year. Some random report, typically a sheer opinion piece but sometimes a bit more substantial, comes out that says the Chargers could move to LA.

    I believe this has been going on since I was still in the Navy. Wake me up when some kind of actual decision is made one way or another. Until then it's just news fluff.

    But it has been a while since I heard anything solid and positive about san diegos commitment to rebuild and retain the San Diego Chargers as they are.

    Also is it cryptic that I would feel remiss if I never get the chance to ever visit that tomb before it's tore down?
    Also can anyone help fund this crazy dream of mine?

    Anything you ever hear on that is just public relations mumbo jumbo.

    I'm only interested in one of two news reports on this topic...either

    "It's official, the Chargers have secured a new stadium in San Diego"

    or

    "It's official, the Chargers have opted out of their clause and are moving to (whatever city)"

    Whichever one I see I'll decide how to respond from there. (If it's the latter I'll likely be waiting on the report of whether or not they're keeping the "Chargers" moniker)

    Anything else is just PR bullshit and news fluff pieces.

    Yea I can't say or not how much I'll still love the chargers or insert new team name if they uproot.

    But I can't say I'll still hold the nfl in similar regard as I do now in ten years as Imo that 10 year clock is already counting down.

    The Chargers to LA story will continue to get trotted out by lazy reporters until such time that they build a stadium, other teams move to LA, or the actually move to LA. Sucks, just get used to it because there will never be a shortage of lazy reporters.

    Yeah, I've grown used to it.

    I only respond to it everytime someone rushes to a forum to post about it like it's shocking news and it's the first time they've ever heard of the "possibility" of the Chargers moving.

    Since I've moved from Dego, I'd still follow the Bolts if they have to move. I know one thing for sure though, I won't lose any sleep either way they go.

    While I prefer they stay in San Diego since it gives me an excuse to go to San Diego and I wouldn't have to find a new tailgate group, I'd still root for the Chargers no matter where they go.

    If they moved and changed their nickname it'd feel like I'm rooting for a new team anyway and I'd probably consider other teams.

    First, gentleman (and Syd), sure, it sounds like a bunch of stupid, made-up stuff...
    but there's a picture, so you know it's not just the fantastical crap
    --merely pulled outta someone's butt!--that it appears to be. :rolleyes:

    My fav part of the "artist's conception" is the big pointless glass oval!! :D

    The FUTURE!!!.png

    Sure, it may look like an absurd, useless piece of junk...(that when the sun shines on it will
    fry our Chargers on their own field, like little ants doomed by am 8 year-old's magnifying glass)
    but
    that's how you know he stadium is from the future!

    (all stadiums in 2060 will have big, transparent, oval antennas to communicate with rival stadiums on Rigel VII...maybe...and hoverboards)

    Unless Rivers and Weddle starred in the remake of True Grit... You are correct.

    I could live with the Las Vegas Chargers. I'd probably stick with them even if they changed their nickname in that scenario.

    An excuse to go to Vegas isn't a bad thing.

    The Chargers are my team, be they in SD, LA, Vegas or Kalamazoo...end of story. Long as they don't renounce the history if a move occurs...Guess it's easy for me to say being an out-of-towner.

    Bury me in bolts...with a bottle of 21-year old Scotch...
