    I know teams like to have their own fan base city of their own, but with everyone so opposed to L.A. Chargers why not (if they do move) just have them be called "California Chargers" ?? I don't like the name, but it might be some middle ground for San Diego fans. We got NY Giants, and NY Jets after a state, just a thought. I doubt it would happen, mainly for marketing reasons, but why not?

    Doesn't matter to me what they are called or where they move (as long as it isn't Texas), they will always be my team.

    Are you sure they are not named for the city? The Patriots are probably a better example.

    As long as the team plays its home games within the San Diego County border, I dont care what you call them.

    They play in East Rutherford, New Jersey and are named after the city of New York which East Rutherford is a suburb of.

    definitely a poor example.

    New Engalnd, Tennessee, Arizona, Carolina, and Minnesota would all be better examples.

    How bout they stay the san diego chargers even if they do move? That is the only acceptable way for them to move. It would be hillarious if a move was contingent on the franchise retaining the name san diego!

    Because there is 2 other teams in this state.

    Los Angeles Chargers is just fine, people just don't want to accept that "Los Angeles" in front of the team name. If it happens, it happens. Deal with it. Until then, meh.

    I'm sure the 49ers or Retards wouldn't have ANY problem with the Chargers being the "California Chargers."

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah

    I prefer the San Diego Chargers. LA=Raider territory. Alot of teams don't play in the city in their name. San Francisco 49ers are moving to Santa Clara, Giants and Jets Play in Jersey, the lakers used to play in Inglewood, the cowboys play in Arlington and on and on. I think a name retention would be positive and even help assert the reality that when it comes to places to live, LA is San Diego's bitch!

    You mean, kind of like the "Dallus" Cowboyz? And the last time I checked, Irving was a city near Dallus, as is Arlington, which sits between Ft. Worth and the big "D"...

    How about the El Centro Chargers, there is lots of land out there. Not to mention, they'd then have the below sea level advantage.

    not to mention the fact that half the people in attendance came back from the dessert early just to get to the game. That would give them another couple of hours of riding before kickoff. Those Monday night games could be brutal on the drive back. One accident and your a parking lot on I-8 for hours.
