Newspapers are coming up with news items as the 32 National Football League owners prepare to huddle Tuesday and Wednesday (January 12 and 13) over the Los Angeles relocation question.
The Orange County Register reports that Chargers head Dean Spanos is "vehemently opposed to moving to Inglewood." The stadium, supposedly under construction, is the one that Stan Kroenke proposes moving his St. Louis Rams to. Publications have said that Kroenke and Spanos were not on the same page, but this suggests the split may be more serious.
"Spanos has repeatedly told NFL officials he isn't interested in the Inglewood site," says the Register. That publication also says that the cost of the Inglewood stadium will reach $2.66 billion — $800 million more than previously estimated and by far the most expensive NFL stadium ever built.
The New York Times says that the relocation fee is expected to be $650 million paid over 15 or 20 years. The assumption to date has been $550 million.
