    They'll rebrand and try to bring the community onboard.

    The "Chargers" will be automatically hated by every Raider fan in town. Not surprising as Raider/Dodger fan seems to hate every other team with shocking intensity.

    RIP Chargers. Hello LA Something or Others. New name. New colors. Same Philip Rivers

    So now they have two crappy teams to ignore instead of one. Cool.

    Thats definitely what they need, another bad team that they won't care about.

    LA is the armpit of america.

    Nah. New Jersey is the armpit of America. That might make LA the dingleberry, though.

    I really thought San Antonio could have supported an NFL team.

    I don't think this will happen. The Chargers have a long history in SoCal and have been the only NFL team in the area for a long time. I would be very surprised if they rebranded, but stranger things have happened.

    There was some talk of the Raiders moving there a few years ago.

    And it's not as if the Chargers didn't start their first AFL season in LA, either.

    I would move them to St. Louis and build a new stadium. The Chargers would be a good fit there.

    Lame. Lamest move since the Colts left Baltimore. The shuffle will continue with the Raiders moving to Vegas; which would bother me far less.

    The Raiders have a large following here and they are blood rivals of the Chargers. No chance of winning them over.

    The Rams have the LA tradition/legacy card played. San Diego fan isn't driving to LA or supporting Spanos now.

    Put me in the rebrand camp.

    Wish Des Moines could get a team. Good size football fanbase but no premier team in the state for Iowan's to support until CMC gets the ball rolling in Ames.

    No thanks. It could only hurt Iowa State football and basketball. I'm fine with cheering for out of state pro teams.
