John Spanos and A.G. Spanos are making the rounds on radio Friday in a blatant attempt to rehabilitate their image in San Diego with former Chargers fans. A year after kicking “America’s Finest City” in the groin, the Chargers are finally reaching out to their former home. While they’re painting this as a move done out of love for San Diego, it isn’t. The bottom line is that they’ve failed to garner any interest in Los Angeles and are looking for some way to gin up more revenue. They don’t care about San Diego’s fans, they care about San Diego’s money. On Friday, the Spanos boys went on San Diego’s 1360 AM with local sellout and former Chargers center Nick Hardwick, and talked about wanting San Diego fans to feel welcome in LA. They discussed needing to do a better job of reaching out to their former city and embracing those fans. To those of us who know the Spanos family and their typical playbook, this is laughable. Dean Spanos and his kids left San Diego without so much as a proper goodbye. They tweeted a letter in which they addressed the city that had been home to the team for 56 years for a paragraph. Then, like so many snakes, they slithered out of town without giving so much as an interview to a local outlet. Even Hardwick blasted the move before selling out for a paycheck from the team.
The Chargers And The Spanos Family Will Never Win Back San Diego
