I don't think anyone forced Dean Spanos to leave San Diego, did they?
I get he didn't get the deal he wanted there, but the league did not mandate the Chargers' departure.
He played the cards that led him to being Kroenke's tenant.
On top of that, put yourself in St. Louis' shoes.
And this is just a hypothetical, of course.
You lose your team. The team that became the least-liked in the city your team moved to decides -- hypothetically -- that it might be OK moving in with you, because it knows you are desperate. And you're supposed to celebrate that?
The NFL made it pretty clear what it thinks of St. Louis.
In every other phase of life, the party that was left behind -- if thinking clearly -- would move on. Turn the page.
On a more serious note, why would the league allow Spanos to move to STL without another relocation fee? Why would he pay for a new stadium out of his own pocket in St. Louis if he would not do that in San Diego? Why would St. Louis give the league a single penny of public money to build anything?
A bad idea gets worse when you start trying to figure out how it would actually work.
