CHARGERS' FUTURE IN SAN DIEGO TENUOUS: In San Diego, Kevin Acee wrote the Chargers avoided becoming the first team since '99 to have a "MNF" telecast blacked out in their home market for tonight's game against the Colts "because they and ESPN bartered with and begged sponsors to pick up the remaining 8,500 tickets." The "way things are going, they won’t be your team for too long," and this is the "truth about the issue that hovers like a threatening cloud for every Chargers fan." It is "not impossible to see the Chargers staying in their hometown of 43 years long term, but you have to squint and really want to make out the shape of a new stadium." In trying to "make sense of the big picture, it’s difficult to view recent happenings and not see that the Chargers’ future in San Diego is increasingly tenuous" (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 10/13).
