San Diego residents are lagging when it comes to a new venue for the Chargers. 200 million is all the Chargers will receive from the tax slaves of San Diego. Which is like 20 bucks in California. The attendance for the Chargers is putrid. As the Raiders and Rams fans own Southern California, the Chargers are treated like a Pee Wee football team.
Las Vegas and San Antonio are the only hope for the Chargers. L.A. is not the answer, they will be treated worse than the Tampa Bay Rays are in West Florida, a team where the visiting fans are the majority. At least with Vegas, the few hundreds of Chargers fans left could make the trip from San Diego, and they could build a huge fan base from the thousands of tourist that call Vegas their second home. I know, there is gambling in Vegas, this is a no- no for the NFL. I hate to tell you , as long as you some internet connection, you can gamble from the North Pole with Mr. and Mrs. Clause and Rudolph and of course the Elves want to get in on the action.
I know the players will be tempted by the bookies and the Mafia, yea right! With all the tech in 2015, the refs and the public won’t be able to tell if a player is throwing a game, of course there is the refs, yea- we can’t tell if their biased can we? In a few more seasons there will be a chip inside the ball, so every thing can be monitored. Yes a chip is coming, and the fans will love it. Give it a rest. Vegas is perfect for the Chargers, heck even the Raiders and Rams should be interested in Vegas. I know the NHL wants to expand in Vegas, screw Hockey. I’m a NHL fan, warm weather cities tend to blow. Vegas and Hockey are like Al Capone and Utah. Plus- naming the team would be lame and stereo typical and very lame.
Las Vegas Gamblers. I never heard that one before.
Las Vegas Sinners. Of course Vegas is the only city in the world that sins.
Las Vegas Outlaws. Yes, laws don’t exist in Vegas, no Police and basically you can do what ever you want, that’s why the Jails are full. You break the law in Vegas you pay. Outlaws live in Haiti, look how that country has turned out
Las Vegas Aces. How original. I bet the Reno Aces would be pissed off, no not really, they are going bankrupt and will be playing in Spokane in 2016. Spokane Meths?
Las Vegas Scorpions. Besides being the name of a famous Heavy Metal group(copyright issues), names like Coyotes, Snakes and Scorpions and Rattlers are hideous. Coyotes are walking parasites that eat domestic pets, Snakes( Arizona Diamondbacks) cause people to soil themselves. A Rattler sound is a sign you are going to get bitten and die. For Christmas little Frankie wouldn’t want these creatures near him, let alone in his room, yet we name franchises after these disgusting worthless pieces of shit. It isn’t cool to see a kid wearing a Coyote shirt or snake shirt, if he only knew what damage and sadness these creatures have cause animal lovers. Little Frankie would highly be pissed off, as his parents should be, professional sports could come up with superior names, get a dictionary if needed. Arizona Diamondbacks is the worst of them along with their neighbor the Coyotes. Arizona Diamonds would have been sweet. Arizona Lizards or Mountain Lions would have been even sweeter for Hockey.
Las Vegas Spades. Let alone a certain culture would get pissed off, this whole Gambling mantra is played out.
Las Vegas Capones. The Mafia doesn’t exist. Expansion names for Las Vegas suck testies. The NFL in Las Vegas would do well, you might be surprised. Plus the Chargers or even the Raiders don’t have to deal with taxes that are off the chart in California, Nevada is business friendly, the Chargers could also use the L.A. market without paying for it. Just like the majority of Nevada residents already do.
