Post Charger's Relocate
San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer said he was frustrated that the Chargers announced Thursday morning that they will move to Los Angeles after 56 years in San Diego, and he predicted the team would regret the decision.

Faulconer said at a City Hall news conference that the Chargers wanted local taxpayers to chip in too much money for a new stadium.

“Dean Spanos made a bad decision and he will regret it,” said Faulconer, who endorsed the team’s unsuccessful stadium ballot measure last fall. "San Diego didn't lose the Chargers, the Chargers just lost San Diego."

He also predicted the Chargers would never get the support in Los Angeles that they’ve enjoyed in San Diego or have the same kind of success.

Changing the name to the LA LOLZ might be a good move.

Charging a $650 million relocation fee, NFL owners chose money over Bolts pride when they approved the move. The gain tallies to $750 million, though, by including the $100 million the league pledged toward a San Diego stadium.

Wait—make it $1.5 billion. Planting the Chargers in L.A. also pleased NFL powers determined to keep the Raiders out of L.A., and led to the Raiders getting $750 million in stadium money from Nevada.
