The Chargers will never be an LA team. Recent news reveals NFL owners were furious with Dean Spanos for exercising the option to move, the franchise has failed to increase in value as Dean had banked on, and is actually losing ground in value compared to the rest of the league and there are backroom maneuvers to move the team back to San Diego. I agree with Sonora, "Fight for LA" is a weak slogan, short-sighted and perhaps arrogant by the Chargers braintrust, believing their team to be superior to the Rams and would win first and faster, unprepared for the turnaround the Rams have made in just one season. I believe the Chargers will end up back in San Diego, under different ownership.

LA may be rams territory but 40 percent of the colessium was charger fans. Wasn't much a home advantage for the Rams.

This. I was there, it was at least 40% Bolt fans. Charger fans were everywhere.

I didn't see any fights, the fans were cool. I went to represent in a Powder Blue Jersey and expected to see like 5% Bolt fans, I was amazed, out by the concessions and bathrooms it was like 90% Bolt fans!! Walking out of the stadium it was like 40% - 45% Charger fans.

You have to admire that organization. They move to a new stadium and won 11 games their first year. Last year they did not have a first rd pick, this year they did not have a 1st nor 2nd rd pick and are 4-0.

Rams were worse than the Chargers and in two years and a young QB, RB and Coop' crushed the Chargers hope for and new fans.
Last year they drafted a WR in the 3Rd round kupp and he looks like a first rd pick. All their draft pick and FA moves look like they understand this business.

Meanwhile chargers are living on the 10-12 year rebuild plan.
Look at it this way, chargers have left their home, they rent, they are teaching themselves the football business from a yellow book. You know the book.

Meanwhile Rivers poor Rivers is working so hard on his craft while most of the other player just don't get it.

Rams, viks and Philly figured out the quick rebuild.
I don't think we will
The Rams were 4-12 their first year in LA.

I'm convinced we the people, the genuine fans, have been brainwashed about the team's move.
