Mayor Faulconer accuses Chargers of failing to give city's stadium proposal due consideration

Seriously?

Faulconer and Goldsmith — in Charger-mandated diaper and Donald Duck suit, respectively — accuse team management of "unserious" attitude.
Faulconer and Goldsmith — in Charger-mandated diaper and Donald Duck suit, respectively — accuse team management of "unserious" attitude.

"The City of San Diego has acted in good faith with the San Diego Chargers," cried Mayor Faulconer at today's press conference, his plastic bib flopping about as he flailed his arms. "We sped up the environmental impact report and the funding proposal, just to meet their arbitrary timeline. We offered tax-based incentives that would make the Koch brothers blush. We sat up and begged like good little doggies. We let USC come in and eat UCSD's funding lunch on Alzheimer's research, just to placate the pro-L.A. crowd. But despite all that, the organization continues to press forward with its Carson proposal. It's outrageous, I tell you! And I won't stand for it very much longer!" At that point, Faulconer put his oversized pacifier back into his mouth and sucked angrily, while City Attorney Jan Goldsmith uttered a stream of unintelligible quacking sounds.

Help the charges pack their bags and put them on a bus outta here. They have been playing the City and people of San Diego long enough - they have no intention of staying here. All they are doing is trying to get people excited abut driving to Carson to see them . But, why would anyone in their right mind make that trip to see the Carson Chargers??? When they move, they will no longer be the San Diego Chargers. Bye bye Chargers!

The kind of chargers we need in San Diego are car chargers and phone chargers! Let the plug-in locales proliferate.
