Bolts should move with Raiders
Can the Raiders take the Carson Chargers with them to Las Vegas? The Raiders play their final game in California Sunday, in the Chargers’ final game at ROKiT Field at Dignity Health Sports Park.
What an amazing irony, having the word “dignity” in the same sentence with the Chargers and the Raiders.
They wanted to go in together on a shared stadium in Carson in 2016.
Finally, on Sunday, they will.
Never mind the bilge that last week’s loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars marked the Raiders’ final home game in Oakland.
Sunday will be a home game for the Raiders, just as every game in Carson has been a home game for the visiting team.
At least the Raiders can look forward to Allegiant Stadium astride the 15 freeway in downtown Las Vegas next year.
The NFL probably understands the reluctance of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to send the bogus articles of Impeachment across the hall to the United States Senate.
Do they really want to send the Chargers to SoFi Stadium, where instead of 28,000 fans of the visiting team, there’ll be closer to 60,000?
The game stories from there will have the attendance figures as prominent as the final score.
Rams owner Stan Kroenke is rightfully outraged by the cost overruns in Inglewood, where a $2 billion price tag is now closer to $5 billion.
And the Chargers are going to show their gratitude by acres of empty seats next season?
The Chargers should have never left San Diego.
After the failure of the new stadium initiative on the 2016 ballot that was distorted by Trump Derangement Syndrome.
They should have taken another shot in 2018.
But owner Dean Spanos’ eyes were filled with greedy delusions of cash in L.A.
Just like Al Davis did in 1982.
Three years after they invited themselves north, the Chargers remain visitors in Los Angeles.
It’s not fair to anyone in powder blue.
Perhaps Oakland will become an option, or maybe St. Louis.
We may hear Merry Christmas give way to Viva Las Vegas.
