Chargers must lose label as lame duck – San Diego Union-Tribune
If the Chargers are not lame in San Diego, their webbed athletes’ feet at least are caught in a web of indecision. After taking a beating from NFL owners, they’re committed to play here in 2016, but also have reached a deal to possibly join the Rams in Inglewood in 2017 — if they cannot get something done in San Diego, more than likely with the downtown citizen’s initiative (their preference).

Can San Diegans Forgive Dean Spanos and Move Forward?: After a year of courtship with Los Angeles, can San Diegans forgive and move forward with Dean Spanos after he says his focus is now a new stadium in San Diego? Marty Caswell spoke with the locals in Pacific Beach.


Oakland Raiders have a new home waiting for them in Levi’s Stadium – USA Today
The home of the San Francisco 49ers was built, by decree of the NFL, to house two NFL teams. The only thing keeping the Oakland Raiders from moving in thus far has been Mark Davis. Now that his back is against the wall, will he explore joining the Niners in Santa Clara?

County Supervisor Ron Roberts joined Scott and BR to talk about the news of the Chargers staying in San Diego for 2016, his meeting with Dean Spanos on Friday and why he believes Dean wants to be in San Diego long term.

Gulls Shut Out By Reign, 2-0 –
The San Diego Gulls were unable to penetrate the AHL’s top defense, falling by a 2-0 count to the Ontario Reign at Valley View Casino Center.

The United States began their 2016 calendar with a dramatic 3-2 victory over Iceland on a rainy-then-sunny Sunday afternoon in Carson.

Was this Scotland or Torrey Pines? – San Diego Union-Tribune
A witches brew of weather – to borrow from Shakespeare – turned a golf endeavor into “double, double, toil and trouble” Sunday at a PGA event.

Stranger still, the wet, blustery, tree-bending scene was San Diego and the Torrey Pines golf course, not Scotland and broad St. Andrews.

Sources: Calvin Johnson told Lions he plans to retire – ESPN
Detroit Lions star receiver Calvin Johnson told his family and a close circle of friends before the past season that 2015-16 would be his final season in the NFL. He delivered the same message to coach Jim Caldwell the day after the regular season ended, sources told ESPN.

3 Padres prospects crack 2016 Top 100 list –
Outfielder Manuel Margot (No. 45) and shortstop Javier Guerra (No. 58), acquired from the Red Sox in November in the Craig Kimbrel deal, are among the top prospects in the game, as is outfielder Hunter Renfroe (No. 92).

John Scott goes from unwanted to unbelievable – USA Today
NHL officials said after the game that John Scott had not been listed on the MVP ballot that fans voted on electronically, but they chose him as a write-in candidate. It was appropriate given how he became an All-Star. Scott started this ride as a controversial All-Star and he ended up as a folk hero, mostly because he was continually classy and could play at a higher level than people realized.
