With talk of a Los Angeles stadium picking up of late, some close followers of the Chargers believe that a move north to Los Angeles is practically inevitable.
The city of San Diego and the Chargers need to come up with a stadium solution that works, and seem to be running out of time and options. To help push things forward, San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders and Chargers president Dean Spanos will meet in the next few weeks, according to Matthew T. Hall of the San Diego Union-Tribune.
We recommend reading the Tribune’s article for a more complete picture of the situation, but it’s safe to say these meetings are rare. This may be only be the fifth meeting in five years between the two leaders. (Their staffs talk about the stadium issue plenty.)
“Bottom line?” Hall writes. “These meetings usually mean something significant.”
We’ll have to wait to find out what that may be. In the meantime, Chargers special counsel Mark Fabiani is downplaying the significance of the get together.
“This is an opportune time for a meeting, given the pending California redevelopment and NFL CBA issues that could in many ways determine the future of a potential new stadium,” Fabiani said.
