    Fabiani to field Chargers queries online Wednesday
    By Matthew T. Hall

    Tuesday, December 14, 2010 at 10:26 a.m.

    Mark Fabiani, the point person for the Chargers stadium search, will hold an online chat Wednesday with the friendly crowd over at San Diego Stadium Coalition, a website whose tagline is "America's Finest City deserves America's finest stadium."

    The San Diego Stadium Coalition is hosting the chat on its website starting at 11:30 a.m. The group's mission? Ensuring a world-class stadium is built for Chargers games and other events.

    Fabiani will doubtless use the opportunity, one in a series of chats on the website in recent years, to discuss the Chargers' desire to build in downtown San Diego with an infusion of public money, the threat posed by two potential stadiums in the Los Angeles area and the impact of the torn Metrodome roof on the mix of teams that could move to Los Angeles. Beyond Fabiani's well-worn comments, what should be most interesting is the live question-and-answer session.

    Word was being spread on Twitter Tuesday via @ChargersPRGuy aka Bill Johnston, whose actual title is, wait for it, Chargers PR Guy. Brian McCarthy, whose Twitter handle is NFLprguy (one guess what his actual title is) also retweeted Johnston's message.

    The NFL has been coy about whether a team in Los Angeles is something it would welcome and some pundits speculate L.A.'s most useful to the league not as a team base but as as a relocation threat for other teams interested in building stadiums in their hometowns.

    In any event, everyone seems to agree that no team would relocate to Los Angeles until the Ghost of No Football Next Season goes away. People on either side of ongoing labor negotiations between owners and players have said some or all of next year's NFL games may not be played if a Collective Bargaining Agreement resolution is a long time coming. The current agreement expires at the end of February and players are being told to stash away their pay for a worst-case scenario.

    I will be asking a few questions if I am not pulled away this morning for whatever.

    1. Dean has said the Chargers exit clause would not be exercised in 2011. Will the new owner have the legal ability to rescind that same committment and exercise the exit clause for 2011 assuming it is done within the allowable time frames?

    2. Has Dean indicated a willingness by the family to consolidate their 15% team share ownership into a 45% or even 60% controlling interest in this Chargers team ?

    3. Have you ever seen a grown man naked ?

    Heard him on 1090 the other day, he has his script, he won't state anything he hasn't already. Chargers here in 2011, no deal with AEG in the works, yada, yada. The Spanos' are doing what we'd all do, using the fear and panic of losing the team to L.A. to their advantage to try and get SD politicos in gear. I do think they WANT to stay, but once Alex's shares get sold, all bets are off.
