Rival Report 1/12: Judgement day for LA relocation

New, comments
Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The San Diego Chargers are the rival team involved with the relocation efforts to Los Angeles, with our own Oakland Raiders and the St Louis Rams the other two teams vying for the king city of Southern California. Tomorrow is likely to be the day the rumors and speculation ends and reality hits for the lucky owners and unlucky fan bases involved with the relocation discussions.

The big rumor taking off over the last couple of weeks is that the owners want the Rams and the Chargers to team up in Inglewood as the two teams given the keys to the LA kingdom. Only problem with that is that the Raiders and Chargers are teamed up on the Carson plan and they are holding strong to their partnership so far.

Even with several owners supposedly against the Raiders/Chargers partnership, a possibly ground breaking report has come along that the LA Committee, which is made up of several high profile owners, is recommending the Carson deal.

What this all seems to mean is that the Chargers are on their way to LA; whether they will be in tandem with the Raiders or the Rams. If they choose to partner with the Rams then the NFL will offer some sort of golden parachute for Mark Davis instead. Could that parachute lead to a new stadium in Oakland? Only time will tell, but the clock is ticking closer and closer to midnight as the owners meeting to decide it all is finally in full swing.
