    WTF kind of nonsense is that?

    That is the resolution? Fuck that. Fuck the NFL. Fuck the Chargers.

    Rams moving to L.A.; Chargers have option to join them in Inglewood


    A 21-year odyssey came to an end Tuesday when National Football League owners voted to allow the St. Louis Rams to move to Los Angeles for the 2016 season and gave the San Diego Chargers an option to join the Rams in Inglewood.

    Their home will ultimately be on site of the old Hollywood Park racetrack in Inglewood in what will be the league’s biggest stadium, a low-slung, glass-roofed football palace with a projected opening in 2019 and a price tag that could approach $3 billion.

    I can't believe the Chargers would come back. They'd be crazy to come back now.

    Where will they play before the new stadium is built? Rose Bowl? I doubt Anaheim wants them back.

    Isn't it the last year on Rivers contract and he doesn't really want to move to LA anyway?

    I don't think the Chargers have a choice but to take the deal, so why drag it out. do it now, get in on the ground floor, and play at either the Coliseum or the Rose Bowl for the next 3 years

    The league is giving the Raiders a boatload of cash as a concession to close the funding gap in Oakland

    I can get on board with the Rams moving back to LA, but everyone else needs to just stay where they are.
