That had to have been one of the worst Chargers’ moves ever! They opened negotiations at 60% and then dragged their feet to come correct. They just came off looking petty and cheap in a year where they need an enormous amount of good will to convince 2/3 of San Diego voters to approve a ballot initiative that will increase taxes on hotel rooms by a measly 4%. You might think taxing out-of-towners would be a no-brainer, but not in this city. You’d be hard pressed to get a 2/3 vote on approving breathable air or drinkable water in this town.
Well, at least we signed our 1st Rounder in the 3rd overall pick of the NFL’s 2016 draft. Let’s hope the Chargers picked right and this kid can play at the NFL level. He seems serious and I’m a firm believer in the 3rd times a charm. We’re about 2 weeks away from the first game so let’s hope that’s enough time to get up to speed and out on the field.
