    I rarely went downtown (unless I had to) before Petco. We go down there all the time now and spend money at the local businesses. It improved downtown alot.

    I'm gonna stick my head in the sand for now, pretende none of this is happening, enjoy the rest of the season and whichever seasons are left in San Diego, then I'll most likely still root for the LA Chargers

    Per NFL rules, a 30% or larger ownership in a team is enough for control. The NFL did a workaround on that for the Rooney family but I wouldn't count on such largesse for the Chargers.


    EDIT: Sorry - it's 35%

    2 options

    1) I can burn all my Charger: Jersey’s, Shirts, Shoes, Posters, Pictures, Autographs, Hat’s, Jackets, Sweatshirts, sweat Pants, Decals, License Plate frames, Decals, and other assorted merchandise.

    2) Put all that above listed stuff up on Ebay and label it a Charger Fan Starter kit, that way they can say they have always been a lifelong fan of the team, and make a small fortune!

    Burning it would give me a greater satisfaction, making money would help the pocketbook.

    Burning

    Money

    Money


    Phuque LA Burning it is!

    I was born and raised in San Diego, and have always thought that if they moved I would never forgive them. But, I think the Spanos family has tried and tried to make something work, and if they leave the bad guys would be the city of San Diego. I still don't know what I will do if this happens, hopefully we'll never have to find out.

    So, if I own 30% I have control even if someone else owns 70%? how does that work?

    Option 3: Sell it at a discount to true life long fans who are still sticking with the team such as myself.

    edit: I just realized the connotation of that sentence can be read to insinuate that you aren't a "true life long fan" if you don't stick with the team, but that's not what I meant. I simply mean another "true life long fan" who is choosing to stick with the team still.

    I believe the other 60% is split between Dean, his brother, and the two kids (AG and John). So unless they consolidate into one owner Amschutz would own approx 35% and become the majority owner (about 5% is owned by two minority owners, one of them being Pernicano).

    If the Chargers move to L.A I would devastated. I would most likely watch the current team for a few years. But after while I would slowly leave the chargers. Only because the history wouldn't be there. The team would start anew. I definitely wouldn't be rooting for them if they became the "Los Angeles *Lame Name*. For the occasion lets...

    Anything that says "San Diego" on it I will keep. Most of my signed stuff says San Diego on it. Anything else will get burned...

    I just edited - it's 35%. I think it has to do with the split but I didn't go into all of the legalese mumbo-jumbo.

    as long as they are the SAN DIEGO CHARGERS, I will be at every home game. I will support them the best way I know how, I will yell ,scream ,BOO, carry on and I will basically do what ever it takes when the OTHER Team has the football. When the Chargers have it, I will be as quiet as a mouse, and I will cheer every play as required. Every point scored will get a very loud cheer.

    If Alex is trying to avoid estate taxes, this deal must be done by Dec. 31st.

    By the end of this month, Chargers fans will be introduced to the new team owner.

    This means fans could raise all sorts of hell with this team possibly heading into the playoffs by attendance and actions. How are the fans giong to react knowing the team is out of here ?

    I'd say it is going to get UGLY REAL FAST.

    Dean needs to make an announcement to the fans soon.

    If not he is going to have a PR nightmare.

    Then again, word has it (radio rumors) as soon as daddy dies, the rest of the Spanos clan wants out of football. Why make any announcements whatsoever if Dean plans on selling his share ? Dean can let Phillip Anschutz take all the heat which he will as the fall guy. Dean has an escape plan by letting Anschutz be the bullet proof vest and take the flak.

    That is the way I see it playing out.

    Merry Christmas

    If Phillip Anschutz shows up, I will show up. That is going to be a game for the ages. I have to see it first hand how the fans welcome the new owner who is taking the team to LA.

    It is actually 10%.

    Do your homework instead of spreading misinformation.
