Lol. Beat me to it!!

And the new gas tax and increase in vehicle registration cost will only affect LA (sarcasm)

The amount of hate for LA gets ridiculous at times.

In June, only four days had healthy air across the South Coast basin, which spans Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties. In July, ozone levels violated federal health standards every day except July 31."

Not to get too political, but LA is already one of the most environmentally friendly counties in the country in terms of legislation. While the air may not be perfect, it isn't all that bad considering the massive population of LA and surrounding area. It certainly isn't what people refer to as the LA smog of the 70s. Not even close.

While things can always be better, none of this will effect the Chargers game play. For those who really want to see smog these days, look up China.

It doesn't mean LA's air quality is healthy just because IE's is worse, and the article did not say that. The air quality in that region is terrible. That's not a slight on the region or LA, heck that's where I'm from, it's just the facts.

Agree that it's not an issue whatsoever. I haven't seen LA Galaxy players or their opponents keel over at StubHub, so I'm pretty sure that when combined with 57-year-old me jogging 3 miles daily through the massive smog that currently engulfs the OC/LA region, Charger players will probably make it through a game without collapsing.

Agree - but for reference purposes (in support of Moe) at the height of smog season (August-September):

How bad is California’s ozone pollution?

About one-third of California residents live in communities with pollution that exceeds federal standards, according to estimates by the state Air Resources Board.

Air quality is worst in inland valleys, where pollution from vehicles and factories cook in sunlight to form ozone, which is blown and trapped against the mountains.

The South Coast air basin, which includes Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties, violated the current 75-ppb ozone standard on 92 days in 2014. The highest ozone levels in the nation are in San Bernardino County, which reported a 2012-2014 average of 102 parts per billion.

Is smog getting better?

Ozone levels have declined by about one-third nationwide since 1980 as a result of regulations targeting emissions from cars, factories, consumer products and other sources of pollutants, according to the EPA.

In the 1970s and '80s, the Los Angeles region often saw more than 200 bad-air days a year, with ozone levels exceeding 300 parts per billion on the smoggiest summer days. Peak ozone concentrations have dropped to about a third of that, even as the region’s population has grown and the number of vehicle miles traveled has doubled.

Sept. 13, 1955: City Hall, a short block away, is a dim specter behind the Stephen M. White statue on the Hall of Records lawn during the peak of the city's dense smog attack. This photo was published in the Sept. 14, 1955, Los Angeles Times. The statue is now in San Pedro.

I attended Cal Jam at Ontario Speedway in '74. The mountains a few short miles north were clear to see in the AM. By the time Deep Purple was playing Smoke On the Water they were hard to find. At least that ozone didn't smell like the usual burnt diesel, hot oil.
I may have suffered contact dain brammage though.

Living in the Pacific Northwest, we have many days when the rain and clouds pretty much obscure the view. But for some reason last Friday was what we call a 5 mountain day. It was clear as can be and from the higher vantage points you could see the snow capped peaks of five mountains. Those days make it worthwhile to put up with all the rain and clouds. Of course, the rain returned on Saturday and it's still rainy here today.

Got to take the good with the bad. Scripture tells us He makes the sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

I like to think that I fall into "good" and "just" category. However, either way I get the rain. On the other hand, all that rain make us appreciate the clear days more.

Speaking of mountain views,I do wonder why the Bolts didn't arrange to play at the Rose Bowl?

The Rose Bowl was not an option. They only permit a limited amount of events.

And it would have been a bad option as that stadium holds 100,000 and it would have been 1/2 full

I heard that the Chargers contacted both the Coliseum and the Rose Bowl and both venues said that they are already at the maximum number of events that the field can tolerate.
