SAN DIEGO - San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer reacted to the National Football League’s decision blocking the Chargers proposed Carson stadium plan.
The owner of the Chargers, Dean Spanos, has to make a decision to either join the newly minted Los Angeles Rams at their Inglewood stadium or stay in San Diego. If Spanos chooses to stay put, he will receive $100 million from the NFL to assist in the building of a stadium in San Diego.
“Today NFL owners rejected the Chargers’ bid to move to Carson. If Mr. Spanos has a sincere interest in reaching a fair agreement in San Diego, we remain committed to negotiating in good faith," Faulconer said. "We are not interested in a charade by the Chargers if they continue to pursue Los Angeles."
“I’m going to take a day off,” said Spanos.
