    Screw the Chargers. That should be a Rams ONLY stadium.

    Seth Wickersham is reporting that one of the main topics of discussion at this week’s meeting of NFL owners will be the viability of the Chargers in Los Angeles. The team has recently revised its revenue estimate down from $400m to a scant $150m. Personal Seat Licensing sales have likewise been dismal. This is a shame, because with the widespread adoption of electric cars on the horizon, the area could use more chargers, just not of the helmeted variety. Hopefully, another team can be obtained to take the Bolts’ place as co-tenants of the new Inglewood stadium. St. John Bosco would seem to be a strong candidate for that spot.

    #6 As unpopular as it may be, I think the Dodgers should spend their money on a couple of younger pitchers with healthier arms than Kershaw. Free agent market will not be what he’s expecting it to be. Also, Jansen, with whatever he has left on his contract, needs to be looked at seriously.
