It started with a tweet. This tweet, actually.
Maybe San Diego is just too small for an NFL team. Maybe, like Portland, an MLS team would be perfect.— John Gennaro (@John_Gennaro) December 7, 2015
From that, Jeff Siniard and myself had to dive deeper. Was it possible that we were thinking too much like fans. What if, financially, building an NFL stadium just doesn't make sense for a market like San Diego? What if it doesn't even make financial sense for the Chargers to build an NFL stadium in San Diego?
This is a topic that had to be discussed. So, this week, Ben Higgins took a break from co-hosting the Squadcast and let Jeff take his chair.
The results of our conversation astounded even me, while we were having the conversation. Not only did we uncover some hard truths about San Diego, we uncovered a lot of hard truths about the NFL and its future as a viable organization. This is a must-listen for any NFL fan, not just Chargers fans.
