San Diego stadium update

As planned, the Chargers and San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders met Monday to discuss a potential new stadium for the team. This is the release the team sent out:

Mayor Jerry Sanders and Dean Spanos of the Chargers met today at Chargers Park to discuss the progress of stadium efforts in downtown San Diego.

The meeting focused on the future of redevelopment and the proposed changes out of Sacramento, the future of the NFL’s G3 stadium loan program after the League’s Collective Bargaining negotiations are resolved, and financing alternatives in the event that the City and the Chargers do not ultimately have access to redevelopment funding and/or G3 funding.

The Chargers and the Mayor’s Office will continue to work together as these important issues are resolved.

Sounds like we’re in a labor-talks forced holding pattern, along with nearly everything involving the NFL these days.

  • Chiefs’ linebacker Mike Vrabel was among the contingent of players to attend Monday’s labor meetings.
