Chargers spokesman Mark Fabiani likes to say that the team has spent more than 10 years and $10 million looking for a new stadium in San Diego.
The team’s current home at Qualcomm is creaky, but its shoddy condition isn’t the main reason the Chargers want to replace it. The team wants what Qualcomm doesn’t have – amenities that could make them a lot more money.
Fabiani ran down some of them for me:
• There’s no modern restaurant and club spaces in the stadium to allow for naming rights, signage, sponsorships and other things businesses would want to pay for.
