We live in a world where money rules everything. The all might dollar will even propel an NFL owner to seek a new market where he can optimize profits and maximize sales off “new team hype.” Don’t believe it? Well just look at the Los Angeles Rams who bolted on St. Louis after 20 years of milking Missouri sports fans for all they were worth. As soon as St. Louis showed little promise and a lack of opportunity the Rams skipped town for Los Angeles which has plenty of promise and opportunity. So much promise and opportunity that the San Diego Chargers decided that the L.A market is big enough for 2 teams. That’s right the Chargers bolted on San Diego for greener pastures in Los Angeles. Now the fans in San Diego are stuck without a pro football franchise after supporting the Chargers for 56 years. 56 years of loyalty clearly didn’t mean that much to the Spanos family and now the Chargers are 1 of 3 franchises to relocate in the last 2 off-seasons. The last team that is on the move is the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders have been playing in Oakland since 1995 so this is a big loss for the Bay Area. Oakland fans were in the stands every weekend with their black hole apparel on, however the Las Vegas profits were too much to pass up and Mark Davis did what was “best for his football team.” Now Nevada will have their first ever NFL franchise and the Raiders will have a new home. It’s been reported that some of the Raiders players are excited about the tax breaks that come with the relocation. Yet the Chargers Philip Rivers deserves the most praise for how he handled his team moving. Rivers was clearly the player most upset about leaving his former community behind and we need to see more appreciation from our athletes like Rivers showed. Bottom line though the Raiders and Chargers will have a new home in 2017 and the Oakland and San Diego fans got the shaft.
