Recently, reports surfaced alleging that the Los Angeles Chargers were considering moving the team to London.
If that wasn't convincing enough, perhaps Chargers owner Dean Spanos calling the report "total f-ing bulls-t" will be. We're not going to London.
One thing both franchises have in common is Los Angeles. This is our home. This is our home, and this is where we are planning to be for a long f**king time. There have been no discussions of any kind between the National Football League and the Chargers regarding moving to London.
The NFL also released a statement saying there is no substance to the report about a possible Chargers move.
Unleashed by Messi, Barca look to continue winning surge
Messi scored another spell-binding free-kick at Camp Nou after his sumptuous pass had already teed up Arturo Vidal for Barca's second.
However, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on a Dallas sports-radio station Tuesday that a Chargers move to London was not a "viable option", adding that they were "committed to their future in Los Angeles and are going to be in a fabulous stadium".
The athletic wideout started his career with the then-San Diego Chargers, and spent the first four seasons of his career with the Bolts before signing with the Raiders as a free agent.
It is worth noting that Sunday afternoon's win over the Packers was just the Chargers' fourth of the season as Los Angeles sits at just 4-5 on the year as it stands today. The Jaguars play in the unsexy market of Jacksonville and they've been playing a game in the United Kingdom annually since 2013. Thus, with the Raiders headed for Sin City in 2020 this will be the last Chargers-Raiders game in Oakland.
With wide receiver Keenan Allen remaining a constant for Rivers along the outside, the return of running back Melvin Gordon will continue to help as well. At a Jaguars event in April, Khan said Jacksonville's TIAA Bank Field, at which his team has a lease until 2030, "has to be upgraded".
