The Latest: San Diego mayor says Chargers will regret move
SAN DIEGO (AP) The Latest on the Chargers' decision to move to Los Angeles from San Diego (all times local):
San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer says the Chargers' decision to move the NFL franchise to Los Angeles after 56 years is ''extremely frustrating.''
The Republican leader said at a news conference Thursday that team chairman Dean Spanos made a bad decision that he will regret, leaving behind a strong market and loyal fan base. He says the Chargers wanted a lot more taxpayer money for a new stadium than the city could have ever allowed.
Faulconer says the team could have worked out differences with the city but that the Chargers were never a willing partner.
The mayor called himself a fan and said it was a day he never wanted to see but that the city is more than one business or organization.
