The Chargers are in a “Fight For L.A.” and, so far, they’re losing. The Bolts are 0-4 and playing in front of crowds that cannot fill up the 27,000 StubHub Center, but the league says it will not reverse course on the move.
“There is no discussion of returning to San Diego from the league or the club,” a league spokesperson told Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter).
We’re only one month into the Chargers’ inaugural season in Los Angeles, but it already looks like the team and the league may have made a judgement error. The Chargers have failed to forge a fanbase in a city where many residents cheer for the Raiders and most of the others have already aligned themselves with the Rams. That could all change quickly if the Chargers start winning games, but they’re on pace to miss the postseason for the fourth consecutive year.
The Chargers are slated to move into Rams owner Stan Kroenke’s Inglewood stadium in 2020. If things don’t pick up in the interim, the league may want to reconsider their gameplan.

I’ll love the cheerleaders in the pic to my room
Chargers will never have any fans again.
Proud of true San Diegans who didn’t follow fraudulent, lying, cowardly, insincere, and incompetent “Spanos Chargers” on their quest to burn every bridge for personal greed. No city. No stadium. No fans. No class.
Should be the Raiders…by themselves…period
This is a very very bad situation for all of us long time charger fans. I don’t think anybody thought they would be supported in LA. I can’t stand the ownership but I feel really really bad for the players.
Horrible. Just horrible. The Stub Hub center is just not suitable for an NfL game. Plus , They’re trying to bring the same revenue as they were an 80,000 capacity stadium.
As a Chargers fan, the whole situation sucks and isn’t helping the players. But this is what happens when you put a losing team in a city that doesn’t want it
Just greed and more greed from ownership and the NFL. They want the PSL money, bigger market, new stadium, and most if it at taxpayer expense. It’s not that the chargers don’t make money, but could make more money…
in other news, water is wet.
Just sale the Damm team already Dean!
If Dean owned a funeral parlor, no one would die.
San Antonio Chargers? London Chargers? I hear St Loius is nice…..
Do Phillip Rivers a solid and trade him to a contender needing a leader. Or move back to SD where the team belongs.
I would not be surprised if rivers just hung it up after this year. He does not want to move to Los Angeles. I can’t be looking forward to playing in a soccer stadium with fans don’t support him for the next two years. Not to mention they aren’t very good.
The league should waive the fee that the Spano’s have to pay for selling their team in the next three years. Make them sell it to owners that the people of San Diego will support in getting a new stadium.
