Sure, if they're willing to drive up to Inglewood, of course they can watch.

They're not going away...except from San Diego. I can see them pulling a Raiders and moving back in less than a generation. They'd be wise to write in an escape clause a la the Rams in St. Louis.

No way. Dean Spanos has committed to pay the NFL $650 million (over 10 years) to move to LA and is taking out bank loans for half that amount (already approved by the NFL). If I was a Spanos family member/co-owner, and he tried to move them back after burning $650 million of my family's money, I'd get the family together to have him removed from management for gross financial incompetence.

The Forbes guesstimate of NFL team values says that $65 million annual payment on the relocation fee is more than the estimate of Chargers' annual net profit. So they're not making so much profit as to be able to throw away $65 million/year for 10 years. (I suppose this is why Spanos got permission to take out a loan to borrow half of the relocation fee -- the franchise doesn't have enough annual cash flow to comfortably pay the league $65 million each year.)

The relocation fee can only be justified, financially, by the increase in franchise sale price for being in LA instead of SD, which means it would be an inexcusable waste of 10 years' franchise profits to move to LA and then move back to SD.

The chargers could move back if the NFL waived the relocation fee and probably stoped any payment due for moving to LA, i.e. Say 5 years down the road the chargers want to move back.

That is the kind of situation that makes me think the Packers are the supreme franchise in the league. What happens in Green Bay is really amazing.

So they are lucky the NFL doesn't impose segregation. Haha
