San Diego Chargers Commit To Qualcomm Stadium Lease For 2014

The San Diego Chargers will remain in San Diego for another year.

Chargers special counsel Mark Fabiani said the team will not trigger the exit clause in their Qualcomm Stadium lease.

Each year through 2020, the Chargers can announce intentions to leave if they pay off bonds sold to expand Qualcomm in 1997. 

Fabiani said the team will continue to work on stadium solutions.

"The team is continuing to work, as we have for more than a decade, on stadium solutions in San Diego, and we will not be triggering the out clause in our lease in 2014,” he said in a written statement.

We need to get the stadium issue resolved as time is running out. The team has shown commitment to the area over the last decade by proposing several plans to get something done locally and by choosing not to trigger the escape clause year after year. However the current lease is set to expire soon and with the time it takes to get a stadium built, the City is on track to find it self without a professional team even sooner than that. Our city hall leaders need stop saying they want to keep the team and match the 'commitment by coming up some real action.

Let them pay for it themselves, otherwise I hope they leave.

It's a mediocre team that thinks everyone in SD should bow-down to them and worship them for being here.

I'm tired of idle threats, let them pull the trigger.
