Poll: Will Chargers Leave San Diego After Playing 2012 in Qualcomm?

The Bolts every year have the option of triggering an escape clause. Will it come eventually?

The Chargers will be San Diego’s team in 2012, having decided not to exercise their option to leave just yet. But with Qualcomm Stadium being called too old and small, and ownership demanding a new stadium in San Diego, the Bolts could bolt for Los Angeles, or another city, as early as 2013. The team began public practices over the weekend. Will the team be staying or going in a few years?

You need an "I hope so" selection.

I love the team, but economics being what they are now days I don't see how SD could pay for the new stadium. unless, team pays 60%, NFL paid 25% and OUR COUNTY of taxpayers paid 15%.

Drill the screws into the wall, place the knobs on the screws, then hang the knives in between the knobs. Note that you may want to drill into a stud for heavy knives. Thanks a lot. http://www.cheapwritingservices.net/cheap-essay-writing-services/ | cheap custom essay

Same here. I've been a Chargers fan since the Murph; however, with California in a budget crisis there is no way we're going to put in for a new stadium. If the Chargers move, it'll be a shame, but San Diego will recover quickly. The franchise needs to remember that the team has no dynasty. They have loyal supporters in SD, but without a dynasty, they're a take it or leave it team. And with possible game blackouts, it makes it more frustrating for fans to care after a while. I don't care for the Padres but will root for them as the home team, and it wouldn't hurt my feelings if THEY left. The same holds for the Chargers--we won't beg you to stay, but will remind you that you have a loyal home here.

Charger Stadiun at Gillespie Field that is the logicial solution but nobody at the county is progressive enough to think of that..The city and the rock quarries built qualcom 40 yrs ago and they still have a stadiun for everyone to use. I know lets expand the airport with taxpayers money to train communists and people who burn our flag, That makes sense if you are the 5% that make money at the airport.

It would be good to use the land adjacent to Gillespe Field( formerly Cajon Speedway) for SOMETHING!! Cajon Speedway was leveled under the bogus theory that companies would immediately flood in there because of the business generated by Gillespe Field....What happened? That land has been sitting there vacant for how long? Three years? Not so much as surveyors stake has been put there since. East County was robbed of that wonderful venue for one reason: The well healed in Fletcher Hills did not like the noise, clear and simple. The noise, I might add, that was there before 90% of them moved there. Cajon Speedway was a famous race track since the Fifties, offering entertainment and a wholesome outlet for the youth of East County. It cost the City nothing, it generated revenue and provided jobs. Not just jobs at the track, but dozens of racing oriented manufacturing and retail jobs. Those businesses closed or cut back because the local racing community had no place to race. The added cost of traveling to Irvine or changing vehicles to race at Barona simply killed the enthusiasm in East County. Most people over the age of Forty in East County have many pleasant memories of Saturaday night stock car racing, but that's all now, memories. Oh and an open useless field of weeds.

"Cajon Speedway was leveled under the bogus theory that companies would immediately flood in there because of the business generated by Gillespe Field....What happened? " Pissy, bitchy, whining people that had just moved into the area got their way...and hallmark land was "put to better use". Know nothing people should be ashamed of themselves. We never learn to not trust outsiders in our community.
