Chargers know Sunday could be last game at the Q – San Diego Union-Tribune
The Chargers will play their final home game of the season Sunday. It is an atypical finale. When they host the Dolphins, it could be the final Chargers game before a San Diego crowd, as NFL owners will meet next month in Houston, possibly to decide whether or not the franchise’s effort to relocate to Los Angeles will be approved for 2016.

NFL keeps hinting Chargers are good as gone – San Diego Union-Tribune

While there remains no certain conclusion, only the most optimistic (or foolhardy) would fail to miss the signs that keep piling up.

In recent days alone: The NFL has reportedly committed $100 million extra to St. Louis’ stadium effort; a key NFL owner blasted the political machinery in San Diego; and that owner had his office inform the office of San Diego’s mayor that their meeting scheduled for Thursday doesn’t fit in the calendar.

    I would love to have the Chargers stay in SD. However the very second Bob Filner was elected mayor Dean started packing.
    I can’t blame Deans business decision to move out. During the past fourteen years I’ve heard very little about saving the SD Chargers. I have heard Enron by the Sea, city council corruption +10, back door deals, jail for some, no jail for others who deserve to be in jail today. I expected nothing less than a Charger move for the past fourteen years..
    The last thing I’d do is support a citizens initiative brought on by the same people that blocked or would have blocked any attempt to build a stadium.
    Seriously now, Do you really think SD democrats/liberals/progressives would allow tax money go to a stadium ? They’d build a thousand dog parks before a stadium.
    San Diego has no one but themselves for the Chargers leaving town. The same goes for Sea World when they shut the door.
    You got what San Diego voted for. San Diego voters stole the team not the NFL.
