Fire Dean Spanos!

The Chargers lost their stadium vote, they lost their last game, they lost their season (5-11) and they lost their Coach.
What they needed to lose is the Owner’s son, Dean Spanos.

Next, it is likely they will lose San Diego as a home field, as Dean Spanos completes his idiocy by likely going to play as the second team in Los Angeles. That will be granted by a huge yawn from San Diego…

The downhill slide began when, to lead the Charger campaign to get a new stadium, Dean Spanos brought in “smash mouth” negotiator Mark Fabiani, a Los Angeles lawyer to the rich and famous. This in one of the most laid-back cities in America, and it cost the Chargers badly.

Somewhere along the way, Spanos put a muzzle on Fabiani, but the team continued to lose, and the voters said “no way.”Spanos wanted a downtown venue and the city wanted a stadium adjacent to the existing stadium. Spanos could have had the city proposed site, but he used his “muscle” to push for the downtown site against entrenched downtown business and political interests.

Spanos lost! Needing a 66% positive vote to get a stadium that would cost the voters nothing, he and Fabiani could only get 43%. San Diegans don’t push around easily by the “Chairman” (son of the Owner who built the team) of a losing team.

The coach who was just fired was NOT the problem, not even for the losses. Our QB leads the league in interceptions, and our two leading rushers suffered season ending injuries. 

But it is Dean Spanos and Mark Fabiani who should be fired.
