    Chargers to relocate to London?

    https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/c...d-la-failures/

    Might as well. They will have more fans over there than they do in LA.

    You think the lack of gravity could improve Mitchell trubisky as a qb? Lol. I donít think rivers would wanna move his 16 kids to the moon and that a much longer commute than the current situation!!!

    Goodell continues to phuck up football

    Thursday night games are terrible
    The extra point pushed back is stupid
    DirectTV monopoly has finally backfired
    Rule changes keep getting dumber
    Pass interference replay is a joke

    His only positive is that he has made the owners more money(whatever value you have on that)

    Chargers in London when the 17-18 week season starts?

    No NFL player is going to go play there. Move family and friends?

    NFLPA not going along w this. Hard enough to get NBA and MLB players to Canadian teams because of taxes and money issues let alone a quasi socialist nation w a 50% tax lol. Would require a $400mm salary cap exemption.

    It is really a damn shame they moved from San Diego. The Chargers are always an away team even when they play in that soccer stadium.

    How the NfL allowed the Chargers to move to LA never made any sense other than the team going to a bigger media market. There's a whole laundry list of reasons why it was never going to work. To not see any of this coming is inexcusable. The NFl and the Spanos family(charger's owners) made their bed, now they can lay in it.

    Players, even in the States, are taxed by the State the game is held in.

    The UK would require work visas from Aug- Feb making the players basically citizens and the UK income tax rate is 45% on anything over $100k. Not to mention supplemental tax issues that in the end would reduce a $1MM salary to less than $350,000. Not even California is that bad, and we see how well that's working for NFL.

    This would be an unmitigated disaster, thou it might help the Dolphins as they can slide into AFC south maybe in a realignment.....

    Owner will never sell. Greedy pigs like that only care about one thing: His team is now worth 2.5 billion being in L.A.

    He will never move irregardless if there are no fans at home games. Not when he has a 20-year lease in "Kroenke Land" for $1 dollar per year. Plus the Chargers have four, 5-year team options to extend that lease. One of the greatest money deals ever struck by a pro sports team.

    Would take years in court trying to force that greedy pig to move to London or sell his team.

    Pig Spanos is not like the other Nfl owners, meaning he has no bad track record of sexually assaulting and making racist comments to team employees, like "Carolina Jerry" who was forced to sell.

    The Pig also does not attend massage parlors, getting video taped while paying for sex, like Kraft.

    Goodell made this mess and it will last for at least two decades, but more likely 4 decades with all those team options.

    Would it sound better if I said "posse" or "entourage"

    These guys have 10 dudes clinging on 24/7

    London doesn't put up w the assault, rape, beating, etc that NFL players union enables and their "posse" culture promotes.

    You guys are a joke. A real joke. Any idiot who remotely follows the game knows that IF a team was going to move to London, it would have been Jacksonville. You guys will buy anything. You guys do not have $100.00 between the lot of you, yet you complain that the owners are greedy pigs. Get a life children. Just because none of you have the ability to make a lot of money does not mean that you have to damn those of us that do.

    Jags go to London if anyone does. I could see Cincy relocating to San Diego or San Antonio when the lease is up in 2026. The fans in cincy should ask the NFL to intervene now to get Mike Brown out if they want to keep their team. Brown and his flunky kids have no idea how to run an NFL franchise and their fans are suffering. Mike Brown is the opposite of his dad. Paul Brown is probably rolling over in his grave.
