Chargers Not Planning On Following Raiders' Lead And Tarping Off Seats
Published February 14, 2013
NOT A TREND TEAMS WANT: CSNBayArea.com’s Andy Dolich noted putting a tarp up in the upper deck of stadiums is "not a trend that you want because it shows that you're not attracting as many fans as you hope to.” Dolich noted while the Raiders have proactively stated they want to stay in Oakland, shrinking the stadium "to become the smallest capacity stadium for NFL football, that's a bad sign." Dolich: "Of course, going against the 49ers and that new, miraculous stadium coming out of the ground, the timing couldn't be worse." He dismissed the idea that tarping off seats could be a “strategy” by the Raiders to move to L.A. Dolich said, "I don't think the Raiders are going anyplace, unless they're going to Santa Clara. They are trying to figure out what to do with building a new stadium, and I don't think this necessarily helps" ("Chronicle Live,” Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, 2/13).
