    If this promise were kept, there would be no issue regarding the Chargers leaving San Diego. It wouldn't happen. To bad Pete Rozelle isn't still alive and/or commisioner.

    Check out this old article by SD's own Jerry Magee from 2004 where he discussed the promise Rozelle to Congress in order to get the antitrust exemption necessary for the NFL-AFL merger.

    Rozelle fought Oakland moving. What Rozelle fought against and promised congress wouldn't heppen, Tagliabue has embrased. I just hope our new commisioner is someone with more integrity than Tags. :icon_evil:

    Pete built the modern NFL into the monster it is today...the greatest "Commissioner" in any sport in any era...That Owner's Biatch Tagliaboob couldn't hold Pete's jock...:icon_evil:
