    Well, to be fair, Comic Con hasn't been running around pissing off San Diegans.

    Admittedly if you were debating about which brought more in terms of $ and events to SD, you'd have to honestly admit its comic-con. What that brings to downtown and the hotels in just a weekend is insane, not to mention repeatedly showing that SD can handle a major convention at any time. Take a look at nearly every pop culture reference to SD and it's not the Chargers but it is Comic Con.

    If push came to shove that probably brings in more, but it doesn't mean people would be happy to lose either.

    130,000 tickets sold in 60 minutes...... sellout in record time, that's Comic-Con.

    If the convention center was expanded, they could bring in many more. And, they could attract other large scale conventions that have previously looked elsewhere. Who wouldn't want to hold their convention in a city where bad weather is very rarely even a consideration?

    Over the Line is Chea
    When my Mother was still alive, she was a member of Alcoholics Anonymous, they had a huge convention here in San Diego before Petco was built. The Convention was held at the Convention Center but they held their meetings at Qualcomm Stadium because because they had over 60,000 people in attendance.
