So 20,000 fans + or - more than what Stub Hub offers on the worst week... I don't see how you can sugar coat any kind of delay... Charger's staying at Stub Hub for anytime longer than projected just seems real bad to me and somewhat hypocritical. Not much Spanos can do I guess...

Where does hypocrisy come in?

They will give Kroenke a waiver just as they gave a waiver to NYC/NJ despite the site not meeting the temperature requirements necessary to host a Super Bowl (minimum average temperature of 50 degrees during Super Bowl week).

That's what a $2.4 billion stadium self-financed by Kroenke will get you.

If attendance was ever part of the issue than it plays a part, if the only problem was aesthetics then I guess it means nothing.

Maybe they'll move back to SD now - I hear the stadium in SD is available.

From the pro football talk article link below:

"As noted by Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (via SportsBusiness Daily), the Rams also will be required to host an international game in 2019, under the rule that every team playing in a temporary stadium must play a home game internationally.

This rule will apply to the Chargers, too. They escaped hosting an international game in 2017 because the teams were picked before the Chargers left San Diego for the 30,000-seat StubHub Center. They’ll have to host games in 2018 and 2019 in London or elsewhere.

The Chargers, while at their temporary L.A. home, will have little or no home-field advantage for three years instead of two — and they’ll have the diminished revenue that comes from not having a full complement of seats and suites."

How does Florio come to this conclusion before a game has been played at StubHub???

Chargers season ticket holders pretty much hold a monopoly on all of the seats at StubHub, which coincidentally is the type of stadium that the SD media is selling its soul to promote these days. If the Chargers won't have a home-field advantage at StubHub, how the heck will the Aztecs have one in "Soccer City"???

There are 30,000 season ticket holders? How are the 2 stadiums and teams even remotely comparable? Aztecs aren't the ones that moved to a rival city where they have a less than 1% fanbase...
