What It Took – Chargers To LA
STL Audio Post
The Inglewood project “almost” kept the Chargers in San Diego. It’s being reported however that ultimately Dean Spanos caved in for his little fish in a big pond longing reportedly for the “promise” of negotiating a revenue and assets sharing agreement with Rams owner Stan Kroenke.
To put it in perspective, Spanos is not only a little fish in a big pond and fully out of his element but now he has a big brother to keep reminding him he’s second level. Per the norm, the Chargers are denying any decision has been made, of course. There is always the (very) small chance Spanos passes on the last chance to get to LA he will see in his lifetime. Right.
So the Rams owner gets what he wants. The Chargers owner gets what he wants. The Cowboys Jerry Jones gets what he wanted (he has to somehow have his fingers in the Inglewood pie). Long-time suffering Chargers fans are left without a team after years and years of loyal support. The St. Louis fans still owe money on the current stadium Rams Gazillionaire owner stiffed them with. In the meantime the City of Inglewood (which is firmly fixed in Kroenke’s pocket) leads it’s citizens down the tried but true primrose path of paying (in ingenious ways) t0 enrich another NFL owner.
At least we can give a shoutout to long-time L.A. Rams fans. We know you’r out there. You better be smiling being the only group not in the billionaire class that made out on this deal.
“Welcome to America. What a country.”
