Other folks are wondering if the name would be the Los Angeles Chargers at all, or of the San Diego Chargers will decide to drop the "Chargers" name and pick up some other new team name along with the move to Los Angeles. In other words, it was highly unlikely the Spanos family was going to pull a Stan Kroenke and privalty finance a stadium and mixued use development project.

The terms "San Diego Chargers" and "Los Angeles Chargers" started trending online since about 7:30 a.m Thursday morning. Gosh, guys, I think like I told you a few days before a little bit numb about it all even beforehand and now even more so. And I actually think what you see in the market, what you've seen, is people here are really good National Football League fans.

"I've been here 13 years and obviously this community means a great deal to me and we love it here".

But at least in the new version, the Chargers have gone back to their roots in terms of colors, returning to the powder blue-and-yellow they've always been known for.

The StubHub Center now seats 27,000 spectators, and will be expended to 30,000 for the Chargers.

Rivers spoke open and honestly about his shock and sympathized with fans, many of whom left their jerseys in a pile outside the team's San Diego facility.

Honestly, if I were making this up, I'd tone down that last part just because no one would believe it otherwise.

It's always tough to see a team go and the Chargers had spent 55 years in the San Diego area. San Diego mayor Kevin Faulconer responded by saying that he wouldn't be held to ransom by Spanos, and that the billionaire owner would live to regret his decision.

The Chargers did not entirely announce the move with grace and style, though, as the new logo looked lazy and plagiarized and deservedly got roasted on social media.

"The Los Angeles Chargers of San Diego has a nice ring to it". Dean Spanos made a bad decision and he will regret it. San Diego didn't lose the Chargers. If San Diego State University takes over the site with a center for research and innovation - it could bring in a lot of money from outside the region and help offset the loss.

Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll described the Chargers' relocation as an "enormous experiment" and an "extraordinary challenge".

For the second time in two years, it appears that an National Football League team is on the move to Los Angeles.

The StubHub Center will host two franchises in 2017 and 2018.

Personally, I haven't been following the Chargers' search for a replacement very closely. I should know. I have no brains and predicted this move four months ago.
