What Had Happened Was: 1/12/17
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
In two years, Los Angeles has gained two NFL franchises. The Rams returned last season, and the San Diego Chargers are picking up their bags and making the two-hour trek north for next season, as well. The team has yet to announce where it will play the next two seasons
or even who will fill the seats, considering the amount of bridges just burned. (Editor’s note: ProFootballTalk reported late Wednesday night that the Chargers may play at the StubHub Center, the home of Major League Soccer’s L.A. Galaxy, for the next two seasons.)
The team tried to quell the frustration by asking its fans to continue voting for defensive end Joey Bosa for Rookie of the Year. Needless to say, it did not make the situation better.

The Chargers are a bad franchise. Dean Spanos is a bad owner. And still it hurts like hell that they're leaving. Irrationality of sports.

Two groups the Chargers can't win over:
1. The vast majority of Angelenos already hooked on another team
2. The fan base they just burned
