Inaugural SAN DIEGO Charger Fan Since 1962 FUDEAN

Ha! A classic Harry post. That made me smile. Well, yes I suppose you are right re: public funds and an NFL owner will now be FORCED to build somewhere else and purchase the land. I fully realize that and that is why I'm so upset I guess......if the city had foresight and were at all competent they would have made sure that land was utilized for truly mutlipurpose rather than the fake aztec proposal which they know is not NFL standard. As in 2004 they should have made it useable for all, and above what THAT proposal was (largely for dean's sake) that should have included a sports arena. ALL of that should be in MV, not scattered from here to kingdom come . I guess that was too much to ask of this backward looking city. Some say (and I remember this distinctly) that sports are not that important to a city and San Diegans are not fully behind sports, that it's a minority of people interested in how that land is used. Maybe so, but to me an identity ofa city is tied to it's sports teams......maybe I'm not thinking correctly about that , maybe sports suck in the great scheme of things. maybe one day peoplewill wonder what this oval wierd pigskin covered object was they dug out of the dirt. Maybe time has passed me by and my vision for SD is long gone. Well that little stadium in MV will remind me how wrong apparently my vision for San Diego was , it sure will never ever materialize now. NFL in Pendleton....that's the ticket, make people drive 40 miles to see it, and no tailgating , sorry, Marines need security. But even that vision is likely wrong. We likely will never see theNFL in SD ever again. spenis and kroenke and their NFL cronies will make sure of that.
