    San Diego Chargers Relocate to Los Angeles

    ESPN

    Almost one year to the day that the Rams moved to Los Angeles, the San Diego Chargers now likely are planning to do the same.

    The Chargers plan to announce as early as Thursday that they are moving to Los Angeles, ending a 55-year stint with San Diego and returning to their birthplace, league sources said.

    The Chargers played their inaugural season in Los Angeles in 1960 before moving to San Diego in 1961.

    The Chargers have notified NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, and other league owners, of their intent to move to Los Angeles for the 2017 season, sources said.
    The football fans in Los Angeles should be stoked to see another team move to their city.

    With the move in the near future, I hope they change their home uniforms to powder blue.

    No fucking way there is enough football interest in L.A. to support two franchises. This is gonna be a shit show.

    I hope they just get rid of the Chargers moniker and go with a complete rebrand.

    There's no football fans in LA, they just go to the game because they get comped corporate tickets.

    This makes me sick. BS, you have no absolutely no gratitude or appreciation for the San Diego fan base you greedy old bastard. The new logo looks like crap too, basically a rip off the dodgers logo.

    I don't follow football anymore but was this as sudden as it seems? Like overnight? I haven't heard anything remotely alluding to the possibility this was happening.

    It's kinda crazy.

    It wasn't a sudden (rko) out of nowhere move, but it still sucks to see happen. Leading up to the Rams going to L.A., there was also talks of the Raiders and Chargers relocating. There's still some talks of the Raiders relocating to Las Vegas, but there's still a bit of time before any official announcement on that is made.

    I honestly want the Raiders to stay, and I did want the Chargers to stay in SD even though their fans don't really show up for the games. Then again. L.A. may not have that much better of a turnout for Chargers games anyway.

    Also, the Chargers are going to play their first two years in Carson before they move into the same stadium as the Rams. lol @ that logo too

    The Carson thing could be a lot of fun if they block out most of the stadium and make it essentially a 20,000-seat capacity. Could be a college-level atmosphere if the stadium is small enough to box in the noise and the fans are closer to the field. Maybe not, though.

    Re: San Diego Chargers Relocate to Los Angeles

    *moved stuff to its own thread, IT WAS ME ALL ALONG

    As a longtime Sonics fan it sucked to see them move so I feel for you guys who were big SD fans. It's a little different in this case but still sucks. Are you still gonna root for the Chargers in LA or jump ship to a new team or just leave the game altogether?

    They'll still be bad for awhile if it's any consolation.

    So pathetic, a move that I feel will surely backfire.

    Hahaha fuck the NFL. Fuck the Chargers.

    Fuji stole the line I was gonna use about "what LA fans?" but yeah, they were indifferent to the Rams coming to town, why exactly are they gonna be any more excited for the Chargers?

    Never has it been clearer that the NFL gives no fucks at all about its fans.

    It's only going to be 30,000 anyway, but no matter what the crowd will probably end up 50% packed with the other team's fans lol

    My bad for not making this into its own thread, but what in the blue hell kind of a logo is that? It seems to be that the designer just whipped the logo in thirty minutes with little or no effort. It's fucking hideous!

    Re: San Diego Chargers Relocate to Los Angeles

    Everything about this reminds me so much of the way the Oilers left Houston for Tennessee 20 years ago. I actually even think some of the shit Goodell is saying about it is word for word with what Tagliabue said back then. They fucked this town over so hard it's insane, people were still paying taxes and bonds on Astrodome renovations until like 2011 for a deal Bud Adams made when he was threatening to move the team to Jacksonville in 1986. It was like the dude held the city hostage until he got a big money deal to jump at, and he was gone. The way NFL moves teams around is absolutely crooked as fuck. You want to read a good book about it pick up "Loser Takes All: Bud Adams, Big Business, and Bad Football".

    I wouldn't be surprised to see them retire the Chargers and change their name/logo/uniforms by the time they play in the new stadium, same way the Titans did.

    As a UCSD alum, I can report that my sources in the city tell me that they havent seen so many angry San Diegans since Ron Burgundy told the city to go fuck itself.
