Yahoo! Sports (blog)

The Chargers Want $700 Million In Public Money For A New Stadium
Deadspin
Per Neil deMause, this entire article reads like a press release for the Chargers. And why not? The new owner of the Union-Tribune hasn’t been shy about declaring the paper needs to be a “cheerleader” for “promoting the new stadium.” The new publisher

    I really love the whole being under the radar scenario for the Bolts….after reading the yahoo Canada blog….they must not know enough about Dub T’s vision for the team let alone what he helped the Colts build post Manning….OR the other UDFAs the Bolts got that just may contribute & make an impact as a well…just keep sleeping on the Chargers… we all shall see soon enough….

    Yahoo Canada? Those morons need to stick to there knock off NFL (CFL).

  • arnie

    Well I least now we know what side of the coin deadspin is on. Look I’ve been to Qualcomm and it sucks. That stadium is older than I am. Whether it can be justified or not, ther should be a new one.
    But in case deadspin wants cry about spending money the “the city doesn’t have”, where did they get the $31 billion, to expand the convention center? Again. What about the money for the over budget new library? Does anyone actually read anymore? That building was old, yet how much revenue does it generate?
    My point, things get old an worn down. The stadium is both. Time for something new.
    Ending rant…

  • Bill Nichols

    Canada?? Huh, surprised you fools can even spell football……. You should be writing about moose calls, or hockey, or ice fishing, or train wrecks… (damn, sorry, that one just jumped out) give me a break.

    • FitzWilly

      not sure where the Canada thing came from
      but show some GD respect
      50 people lost their lives
      stop being a American DickHead
      P.S look at the education stats, then tell me who can’t spell numb-nuts

      • Bill Nichols

        You sir can Fuck-off. Just because someone has “Harvard” grad in their bio, doesn’t make it so…… And, I did say sorry. Willy…..

        • FitzWilly

          deleting the comment is sorry
          letting people see it then saying sorry is NOT
          you are part of the “ignorant/loud” group that gives the GOOD Americans a bad name
          now run along junior, you bother me
          If I would have come on here and said something snide about the Boston Bombings
          I would have been banned right quick
          But because it’s Canada, it’s ok
          that is Bull-Shit

      • Bill Nichols

        PS. One more thing. I am a “proud” American Dick Head at that. enough said….

        • FitzWilly

          I’ve already forgotten about you
          move on junior

    Chargers want new stadium: Not in San Diego City with 2 billion due for the pension deficit; same for the county. The city can’t keep up with the broken water pipes and have you seen (thud) those pot holes?

    • arnie

      True. However this city found money to build a new library, and expand the convention center, again, all the while still owning the 2 billion. There are ways of getting it done, they have to “want” to get something done.

  • miketuck

    Floyd deserves to get paid after years of Smith/Spanos giving Jackson alot of the money that should have went to Floyd. Floyd has given the Chargers a great WR and consistancy for years.

  • FitzWilly

    Enough with Canadian cheap shots already
