    Saw this poll elsewhere, curious how people are feeling about this here. I honestly don't know, guess root for whoever is doing better. I will change my user name to Fairweather Fouts! :p

    SD Raiders.
    Possibly the only thing more wrong than the Chargers and Raiders trying to build a stadium together!

    That said, if the Chargers leave, the city is wide open for any team.

    It'd be weird because suddenly I'd be rooting for more LA teams than SD teams.

    It would be hard to root for the Raiders after all these years. I don't really hate them, C'mon it's just sports, but as PR says "it's nausiating." However, winning cures everything.

    If Raiders stay in Oakland, or go elsewhere besides SD, I probably wouldn't be as excited about Chargers football, but winning cures everything. Maybe that is what Spanos is counting on.

    SD Raiders for me.

    I'm not resident in California (or even USA) but have followed SD Chargers from afar for around 10 years now. However, when I made my first trip to SD with other European fans in 2009 (I think) I fell in love with the place. I've returned with friends, wife and family since then and find it inconceivable now to go on one of my regular holidays to The States without visiting SD.

    I've also met people across there who I now call friends, who go out of their way to make me feel welcomed in the city and who I miss when I come back home.

    So although the football team is the primary reason for my first visit, I now feel a great warmth for your fine city so it would just seem right to support a different team name in SD rather than the Chargers in a different City.

    Oh yeah, there's also Stone Brew beers...

    Neither. Will NEVER root for an L.A. team, much less one that took a dump on my home town. The Raiders? ******* please!

    I will be a fan of no team, will just root for players on my fantasy teams. And will root for the L.A. Chargers to go 0-16 forever, and the move to be such an epic failure that the word failure is removed from the dictionary and replaced with SPANOS.

    I'm with you on the city, which is why I'd go to a lot of LA Chargers @ SD Raiders games rooting for the Chargers. :D

    Chargers. I'll follow them every where as that's my favorite team. I can like some players from the Raiders but if they moved here I think might puke.

    Can you imagine the shot to the gut it would be if the LA Chargers won a Super Bowl in the next 5 years?

    I would root for them over the TURDS, but only to be good, not to win the Super Bowl.

    So let me get this straight. The Chargers move to LA and everyone is pissed. The Raiders move to San Diego now the City has another Team that calls San Diego home? AND that team has a few Lombardis? I wanna see the smack talkers on this one.

    Well good luck to those staying behind, I'm a Chargers fan where ever they play. I was born in LA and currently reside in AZ so my ties to the city of San Diego (where I lived for 21 years) are only that, a place I lived. I was raised to be a Raider fan but fell in love with the Chargers, they go, I go with them. My LA ties raised me with the Lakers so one more LA team won't kill me, SD will always house my Padres.

    I'll be rooting for the L.A. Chargers, and if that gives Philip a Super Bowl ring all the better

    The worst part aboput the raiders coming to San Diego would be that they would become the local team, meaning local TV stations would air their games instead of the Chargers', and local news casts would talk about them :poop:

    I'd be rooting for the SD Raiders. I'm sorry but even if this is a business don't you take a **** all over my hometown and my support and expect me to take it. Spanos decides that what matters more is making money, that's his prerogative. But he'll lose this life long fan.

    If the Chargers stay in SD I'll remain a lightning bolt.

    I'm Bolts forever, I couldn't ever cheer for the Raiders. As an international fan, the concept of LA or SD isn't as significant to me as it is to a native of San Diego, for me the sad part is how our piece of turd owner has handled the situation and shown the hometown fans no regard

    The question is: is anyone FROM San Diego following the team to L.A. if it happens? I get the out of towners, but I don't know how a San Diegan can do it.

    I know 3 that say they will follow the Chargers.

    That said, if another team comes into SD, and finds success, I would not be surprised to see them rethink their allegiance...

    To each his own I guess, but I just can't see it. As a dude born and raised in San Diego I spent most of my younger years taking doodoo (weak as* forum censorship) from fans of L.A. teams. Dodgers fans pooping (weak as* forum censorship) on Padres fans, Lakers fans pooping (weak as* forum censorship) on Clippers fans, Raiders fans pooping (weak as* forum censorship) on Chargers fans. Just the overall smug "we're better than you" attitude of those douchebags was enough for me to start hating L.A. Add to that the Los Angeles false sense of superiority to San Diego, and penises (weak as* forum censorship) like T.J. Simers who like to talk down to San Diegans, and it makes it hard not to hate those penis heads (weak as* forum censorship).

    THEN, if you sprinkle on a big load of Dean Spanos telling the city of San Diego it's not good enough and making googly eyes at L.A., I just can't imagine any real San Diegan saying "thank you sir, may I have another." The one thing L.A. has going for it is the biggest reason I can't stand that place: a poopooload (weak as* forum censorship) of people.
