Philip Rivers: ‘I’m a little numb’ about Chargers moving

NFL.com 1/12/17 By Kevin Patra

Philip Rivers has mixed emotions about the Chargers move to Los Angeles.

“I’m a little bit numb about it all. It hasn’t really settled in,” the quarterback told KLSD-AM in San Diego on Friday, a day after the Chargers announced they would move to L.A.

Rivers, a longtime proponent of the Chargers remaining in San Diego, spoke of the struggle between leaving the city he’s called home and embracing the move to Los Angeles.

Chargers’ move a risky proposition for more than just the team

Los Angeles Times 1/12/17 

By Sam Farmer

Gambling isn’t allowed in the NFL, but this Chargers relocation feels like one big roll of the dice.

There’s extreme anger in San Diego, where betrayed fans are discarding their Chargers jerseys in front of team headquarters. And there’s apathy in Los Angeles, where the arrival of a second team was met Thursday with a collective yawn.

It’s a bad look for the NFL in the middle of the playoffs, and it’s a risky proposition in a season when TV numbers have taken a significant dip.

The league has long looked at Los Angeles as a two-team market, but this isn’t the way it wanted to solve the Rubik’s Cube. Now, there’s a real chance that three cities will lose their teams in rapid-fire succession — St. Louis, San Diego and, possibly, Oakland — and the fickle Los Angeles engine will be flooded.

For two decades, Los Angeles was more valuable to the league without a team than with one. It was the threat that stadium-hungry teams could use to get their cities to pony up and help pay for new venues. Now that threat is gone. There’s no more room at this inn.

Welcome Los Angeles Chargers!

San Diego, CA, January 12, 2017 – Dean Spanos, Chairman of the Chargers, announced this morning that the team is relocating to Los Angeles and will begin the 2017 NFL season as the Los Angeles Chargers.
 “San Diego has been our home for 56 years. It will always be part of our identity and, my family and I have nothing but gratitude and appreciation for the support and passion our fans have shared with us over the years,” said Spanos in a written message posted to Chargers.com. “But, today we turn the page and begin an exciting new era as the Los Angeles Chargers,” said Spanos. “L.A. is a remarkable place, and while we played our first season there in 1960 and have had fans there ever since, our entire organization knows that we have a tremendous amount of work to do. We must earn the respect and support of LA football fans.  We must get back to winning. And, we must make a meaningful contribution, not just on the field, but off the field as a leader and champion for the community.”
“The Chargers are determined to fight for LA and we are excited to get started,” he concluded.
The full statement from Spanos can be found here.
As this announcement was made by Spanos, the team launched www.FightforLA.com, a website that allows fans to place a fully refundable $100 deposit on season tickets for the 2017 season. Current Chargers Season Ticket Members will maintain their priority status and are not required to make a deposit.
www.FightforLA.com also revealed that the Chargers temporary home will be StubHub Center, located on the campus of California State University Dominguez Hills in Carson, which is owned and operated by AEG. Capacity for Chargers games at StubHub Center will be 30,000 seats, with approximately 3,000 premium and field seats, 46 suites, 16 cabanas, and 10,000 on-site parking spaces.
“The experience for our fans at StubHub Center will be fun and entertaining, and every seat will feel close to the action,” said A.G. Spanos, President – Business Operations for the Chargers. “This is a unique opportunity to see NFL action in such an intimate setting. The new stadium at Hollywood Park will be a tremendous stage, and we can’t wait to play there, but right now it’s about introducing ourselves and getting to know new fans and partners in a special, one-of-a-kind setting.”
The fully-refundable $100 deposit allows fans to reserve up to four seats at StubHub Center, ensures priority status for 2017 Chargers season tickets, and grants priority status for seats at the new Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park, the future home of the Chargers.
The Chargers also revealed a new advertising mark borne out of the team’s iconic lightning bolt and historic shield introduced in the 1960’s. This new mark and fresh take on “LA” is part of a larger identity campaign called “Fight for LA” intended to convey the commitment of the Spanos family and entire Chargers organization to earn the respect and loyalty of Los Angeles football fans. The new mark can be found at www.FightforLA.com.
“Our ultimate goal is to bring L.A. a Super Bowl championship,” said John Spanos, President of Football Operations. “When we say we will fight for L.A., this is the essence of our pledge. “
