REPORT: Chargers Target 2022 Opening Date For Downtown NFL Stadium
Ben Higgins of 10 News and The Mighty 1090 reported some information about the San Diego Chargers’ citizen’s initiative last night, including how the San Diego Chargers intend to pay for an NFL stadium downtown and when they intend to start playing in it.

Chargers’ plan offers certainty — maybe – San Diego Union-Tribune
The Mighty 1090’s own Kevin Acee is reporting that the Chargers and NFL will pay $650 million of the stadium costs, with the remaining $350 million for the stadium and the cost of building the convention center being raised through a net 4 percent hike in the hotel tax. A joint powers authority (JPA) would own and operate the stadium, with the Chargers receiving only game-day revenues. The team would sign at least a 30-year lease and non-relocation agreement and be responsible for construction cost overruns on the stadium portion as well as desired improvements in ensuing years.

That was San Diego State in 2009.

And now it’s San Diego State in 2016.

LeBron James coached the Cleveland Cavaliers despite Tyronn Lue’s attempts to coach – For The Win
Dressed like an assistant coach, LeBron left the bench and began actively coaching his fellow Cavs teammates. Normally, this could be considered good leadership, but you rarely see an injured or resting player leave the bench area to shout instructions to his team.
