Supposedly, he's only interested in the Raiders moving to San Diego. I'm willing to bet the whole thing hinges on him becoming another part owner of the franchise.

To be clear, this isn't solely about the Raiders.

The correspondence from Manchester, dated Feb. 8, said the group is “open to working with the Chargers, the Raiders, other NFL owners or a new ownership group.”

I read that too. But if he was so seriously interested and invested in getting a new stadium built in San Diego, why didn't he come forward with a solid proposal over these past years.

And now that the Chargers have made the move to LA metro public, and are pursuing this season at Stub Hub, isn't it too late for them, at least for some years now, to come back? Unless a guaranteed private funding stadium plan is ready very soon, and they can decide not to actually make the move. I don't know if that is even possible at this stage.

It's not like Dean is throwing a whole bunch of risk or personal money into this move. He has no personal/monetary stake in the stadium and is probably only on the hook with his new practice facility as his only "real" investment. (And that's not assuming he's paying for that with his personal wealth either).

I was actually thinking we should stick it to a Rivers, by trading him to the Raiders for Carr, Mack and the lease at Kronkeworld.

Then we can host 2 playoff games a year in this brand new SD stadium...

Meh, what would he want that for ? The real money potential is in renting out NFL stadiums. In fact, he better move quickly, or someone else is likely to swoop in and steal his thunder.

Besides, Papa Doug will be 75 years old in a few months. If he includes a nursing home unit within the new stadium, he can live there and watch the team live right from his windowside bed. How many people can say they've had that opportunity ?

Sounded like they were only going to fill in the part of the financing that the city/county was going to put up. $300MM right? Which means the NFL owner, /NFL cover the rest.

He may have a personal reason to not want to deal with the Spanos family and is interested in whoever the NFL sends his way. This might also eliminate the ability of the local politicians from screwing it up. Who knows.

Wonder why the SD moving per Dean thread was locked?? Is this the new stadium issue thread on the down low???
