Good luck to him, he's gonna need it. What irks the hell out of me is according to Gloria and Elliott the city twice waived any ability to sue the NFL as St. Louis had done. Stupid city council....not just that but allowing an out from the lease way back. And as I've said so many times, Dean DID know way earlier he was leaving and this lawsuit claims it was by 2006 the decision was already made to leave. Gee, huge shock. And all along there were those who claimed Dean was just bluffing for leverage. They look mighty silly now. I had thought it could be as early as 2004 around the time I think he hired Fabiani. THAT is when it was a done deal in their minds.

They will settle out of court just like in St. Louis. But this time, Dean doesn’t have the money. Dean has at least 3 suits against him and the team. How long until the nfl drops the dead weight?

NFL will use this “alleged happening” to further pressure Deano. They're gonna wash their hands and say it was his idea, we told him to say a few more years.
The City Council waiving their right twice might actually help here, if that waiver was rewarded by cash or any other benefit.
I don't see Stan or even Goodell helping one inch, more likely they will 'co-operated' fully.
Deano will be in Frankfurt or Mexico City if wants any NFL help.

Star witness: Jim Steeg, Aguirre is using his statement as his main proof. Maybe there’s more details somewhere, like I dunno, emails?

Ha ha, i think Frankfurt works. But not as a team owner , as a hot dog caterer. He likes ripping off migrants. But only halal beef dogs dean, dont be putting any pork bologna in the frankfurters. Dean deserves to go to Aushwitz

If Stan had to give League indemnity to any costs arising from leaving St. Louis, would not Spanos be expected to do the same for moving from San Diego?

I'd be amazed if this proceeds, that the League keeps their distance and claim
they “did everything right” and did not force Spanos to move.

Best case scenario is the league uses this to finally get rid of the cheap ass.

I don’t see any other outcome but for Dean to sell.

I agree with harry that I wouldn’t be surprised if the nfl is sending evidence to Aguirre just like with gruden.

There's a lot of crap that will come out some day. Plus, some wild backroom deals.
Love to read what Stan thinks about his deadbeat renter that was forced upon him.

Something's gotta give.

Rams owner Stanley Kroenke, who in recent weeks tried to narrow the scope of his liability in the case, is expected to reimburse the league for most or all of the settlement.

The payout comes on top of the $550 million* relocation fee that Kroenke paid to the N.F.L. for the right to move to Los Angeles. He has also spent roughly $5 billion to build SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif., which the Rams share with the Los Angeles Chargers, and which will host the Super Bowl in February.

*Note: I recall that the Rams and Chargers relocation fee of $650 million would cost team only $550 million if paid in one lump sum at start. I think Deano has/had...who knows?....
a 30 year bank loan (previously it was 10 years and $65 million dollars owed a year.)
So maybe it's $30 million a year with total plus interest of much more that the org. $650 million loan.

Same info, but shows word is getting around:

What year did that Fuking FUdean take San Diego off the uniform? I said it then, that’s when that Fuking fuker decided he was moving to what he thought was going to be the Golden Goose. I hope the goose fuks him in the caboose. Strike that, he’d probably like it.
Let's be real now: when Alex first started demanding a new stadium while Petco was under construction, the Q had just been renovated a few years earlier, the team on the field was a disaster, and the city was still trapped in the ticket guarantee deal, THAT'S when they had already decided to move the Chargers. You don't poison the well that badly for a new stadium unless it's all a charade you're putting on so you can justify relocating.

I think it was when Oakland and the rams left la.

IMO, as Gilly has pointed out many times, Dean decided to move once he hired Fibiani. Reminds me of the old Leitner joke - how do you know Mark Fibiani is lying? His lips are moving.

Spanni made the decision to move to LA the day he sent the NFL a claim for territorial broadcast rights in orange county. He was trying to build a fan base there for the impending move. Everything after that was just a dog and pony show.
