So, will the Chargers choke this season?  If history repeats itself, yes. 

Will they move to Carson?  I believe so.  For, what, 13 years (?) they have been asking for the city to build them a Superbowl worthy stadium.  Each and every year, the city said no.  Even this year, they asked again.  Mayor Doofus said no.  Then the word got out about them moving to Carson.  And all hell broke loose.  Committees were stood up within minutes, studies done (gundecked), financing plans generated (all bogus), all to keep them here. 

My money is on them moving to Carson.  I'm also making my standard bet that they will not be going to the Superbowl.  In fact, for years I have always said the San Diego Padres have a better chance of going to the Superbowl than the Chargers do.

I think the Chargers and the Raiders will share the stadium. I think the St. Louis Rams will be the odd team out.

I no longer refer them as the San Diego Chargers, I call them the Carson chargers

Well, the city just released a flashy-showy promotional video about the new stadium.  Just a day after the Chargers announced their intent to file for a change of location with the NFL.  Too little, too late, too illegal, and mostly at tax payer and attendee expense.  Oh wait!!!!  Dang, that is just what the Charger organization just said on TV!!  HAHAHA

Saw a story earlier out of SD that we might be rooting for the San Diego Jaguars in the near future. Allegedly Mr Khan the owner has met clandestinely with officials about the move and a new stadium (hmmm???) that he could mostly, if not completely finance like Kroenke is doing in LA.

NFL wins all around...TV money from LA and the get to dump Jax, which doesn't draw which will free up Florida for Dolphin revenue, since the state north of Orlando can't watch because Jax is the "local" that has to be televised. The losers of course are we fans, whether we still live there or not.

I get the NFL package specifically to watch the Chargers. Not sure I can support them if (when) they move and trading out for a really shitty team is not gonna get my support either.

Khan is the 4th wealthiest owner in the league, so he can sling money around, but up to now they can't buy a decent team!!! God help us all!

If it's true, they will go into the Qualcomm Stadium.  The "new" stadium was gundecked from the start to the "finish".  It will be a few years before all of the studies are conducted legally before they can start a new stadium at the site.
