I don't understand why the put a 10 year moratorium on a Chargers sell. New ownership would give the NFL the option of fan becoming interested in Charger football again

The NFL did that because they didn't want a franchise moving to LA just to flip the team and cash in.

In the Chargers' case, even though Spanos is a twerp, new ownership doesn't fix the problems of spending three seasons (including this one) at StubHub and being, as Farmer said, the second-banana NFL team in a city that might not even want one.

Would the NFL let Spanos sell if new ownership was going to undo the mistake of moving to LA? Maybe, but it's so far-fetched it's not worth much discussion. AFAIK, no one connected to San Diego who has access to $1.5 billion offered to buy the Chargers and keep the team there during the last few years of melodrama about LA, so it's not going to happen now.

The moratorium was just a defense against what everyone now knows is impossible. Lots of rumbling that owners are wringing their hands over the Chargers. I wouldn't be surprised to see them drop the moratorium if it they think it can get the Chargers someplace they're wanted. Or at least, not ignored.

I get that it doesn't fix those issues that Farmer listed. But the LA Chargers under Spanos I don't believe have a chance. His continued stewardship just isn't going to engender fan support.

Concur, I was worried that the league would see a drop in QB play but it looks like the new crop of signal callers will do just fine.

Goodell's wife has been anonymously defending him on Twitter. 01-lauramac2

Roger Goodell Has a Secret Defender on Twitter: His Wife

Quote:When National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell is under attack, as he so often is these days, @forargument is there to fight back.
Quote:Who is this valiant defender of a man who has so few defenders?

It is Roger Goodell’s wife, Jane Skinner Goodell, The Wall Street Journal confirmed after an examination of the account.

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21003...to-defense

Quote:Late last month, when the NBC Sports blog Pro Football Talk tweeted it was "on the commissioner" to mollify the recent national anthem controversy, Goodell used the account to reply.

"Please do better reporting," Jane Skinner Goodell, a former anchor for Fox News before her retirement in 2011, tweeted. "He is already doing this. You are behind."
