There is an interesting and informative column by Jim Steeg, former Charger COO and NLF VP in the Sunday, Jan 15, 2017. pg. A20 edition of the U-T.

Jim, an extremely creative gentleman and showman should be credited with making the Super Bowl what it is today. Not just a Championship game, but a true cultural spectacle. I had the pleasure of working with him on two of the three Superbowls staged in San Diego.

Jim, a Charger insider, gives us a glimpse into the inner working of the Spanos dynasty, as well as the shortcomings of our hapless elected leaders. However, in the no holds barred rundown, the title of the piece tells most of the story: "Spanos Family Blew It by Alienating So Many..." It is worth a read.

The link below is an archive of the story: http://sandiegouniontribune.ca.newsmemory.com/publink.php?shareid=2719990c7

Mike Murphy: Is the U-T cutting expenses now to spend bucks hyping the next stadium scam later? Perhaps. But that strategy would require thinking ahead -- something rare around there. Best, Don Bauder

JustWondering: If Steeg was really a Chargers insider, he would have known very well that the Chargers had been aiming at L.A. for years. Best, Don Bauder

MichaelValentine: San Diego is in a semi-desert. One should always be on guard for a long-lasting drought. Best, Don Bauder

SportsFan0000: I have written several pieces about how the new building almost broke Jefferson. You can pick them up from our search engine.

A problem for all law schools these days is that there is a surfeit of lawyers. According to economic principles, legal fees should therefore be coming down. I don't believe they are. Best, Don Bauder

ImJustABill: It just sickens me that NFL officials and owners believe that the owner of a team has a God-given right to a massive subsidy in the building of a stadium. One after another, owners will say that San Diego has to come forward with its financing plan -- how much it will commit to the Chargers.

Such conceit. Very possibly, the stadium subsidy game is over in California. The owners aren't smart enough to see that happening. Best, Don Bauder

SportsFan0000: I have not read that the bar exam is a crafty way to fix prices at a high level, but I would not be surprised if it is true. For obvious reasons, industries use bizarre, secretive ways to fix prices. When I was at McGraw-Hill, I was told that the oil industry used a McGraw-Hill daily publication to fix oil prices. I don't know if that was true. Best, Don Bauder

SportsFan0000: Yes, good column by Rome. Most columns I have seen state that the Chargers are not wanted in L.A. Best, Don Bauder

Sounds a lot like Donald Trump. What would he have been without Daddy?

Surfer Baby: The only way management will get the message on the inferiority of its product is if people cancel their subscriptions and advertisers drop out. Best, Don Bauder

SportsFan0000: That is a good summary. I didn't know about those Vegas odds -- interesting. Unfortunately, I am not a betting man and I hate Las Vegas.

If he has an extreme narcissistic personality disorder, would it be redundant to add that he is a sociopath? Best, Don Bauder

SportsFan0000: The things I would like very much to come out are the multiple uses of offshore banks. I have been writing about these egregious abuses for a couple of decades, and few people seem interested. This would make them wake up. Best, Don Bauder

Flapper: It is disappointing when progressives disrupt free speech, but, still, conservatives are the worst in this regard. Best, Don Bauder

SportsFan0000: But they don't want the voters to understand the proposal, because taxpayers are getting such a screwing and the Spanos family is getting so much and putting in so little. Remember the adage: "Contrived complexity is the essence of white collar crime." Best, Don Bauder
