AEG Downtown LA Stadium Deal Is Dead

According to a report from Jason Cole of Yahoo, the AEG stadium project in downtown Los Angeles looks dead to the NFL. You can check out his article for all the details.

It seems like good news for San Diego Chargers fans, but the news still won’t stop talk of a possible move to Los Angeles. This will just slow talks of a possible move to the AEG project. This just moves the project in the City of Industry up the ladder as the next possible destination for teams without a state of the art stadium.

Just because one option goes by the way side, doesn’t mean that the possibility of the Chargers moving is gone. The only way we know that the Chargers are here to stay is when we start sticking shovels in the dirt to build a new stadium for the team. Somehow we need to get that done. Somehow we need to see that day. It would be a glorious day for San Diego Chargers fans.

    News was saying that the AEG deal came in at $1.2 billion now. Imagine what it would cost when it was finally completed.

    As to the City of Industry deal, the news was saying that option was years away from being feasible (think the news said 8-10 years).

    Buys some time to look into the Doug Manchester proposal. He says he would build it with private money, next to the Convention Center.

    It should be a privately funded deal, with little or no government money. Maybe that is harsh.

    It’s completely short-sighted to say that no government money be used. Cities make hundreds of millions of dollars when hosting a Super Bowl. A new stadium, particularly in the NFL and in good weather locales, should be looked at as an investment. Why should an owner pay all of the money for a stadium, while huge benefits go to the city? If the city wants to make some money, then PONY UP!
