Chargers Stadium Plans In San Diego Not Moving Forward
Published April 11, 2011
YOUR MOVE: In L.A., Bill Shaikin noted if the Chargers move from San Diego -- “most likely to Los Angeles -- the Padres will become the only team in the majors without competition from the NFL, NBA or NHL.” However, Padres President & COO Tom Garfinkel is “not so sure his team would strike gold if the Chargers bolted, because the teams share many sponsors and the market is the fourth-smallest in the majors.” Garfinkel: "We'd like the Chargers to stay. We think it's good for the city." Shaikin wrote the San Diego market is “too small and too sophisticated to ensure the Padres prosperity, even as the only game in town.” The Padres “cannot pack Petco Park unless they win” (L.A. TIMES, 4/10).
