The Mayor of San Diego has given the green light for the Chargers to play at their regularly scheduled Sunday kick-off time in QualMurph Ball Stadium, but the Chargers are, for some reason, hemming and hawing over the final decision. They're claiming air quality issues and while that seems to be a legitimate concern I have to wonder if their isn't a bit more in play here. Does anyone else here think the Spanos' aren't above using this disaster as an excuse to move the game to Monday night and cut a deal with the NFL Network or ESPN (for ESPN 2) to show the game? Trust me, CBS is not going to pre-empt their primetime schedule for this game. The truth is, I don't even know if the above scenario is even a possibility, but the whole thing makes no sense. The air quality in areas that never actually caught fire down here seems to be fine. Of course, I'm no scientificator, so what the hell do I know?
Of course, there is one other possibility. Maybe they're looking for a venue in L.A. so they can showcase the Chargers to their future home. Don't go, Bolts!!!
