Raider/Cowboy fans are probably the most annoying in the NFL.

Nah, Cowboy fans are lovable. :)

Raiders fans are the most annoying, by far. Nobody else even comes close.



As to CCDC's demise and the Chargers "moving to LA", the last time I checked, the stadium up there is still just drawings on paper at the moment...

Yeah, LA is not having any more luck than SD is, which to me is surprising.

Well Spanos just killed the very slim chances he had of getting some kind of vote passed to use tax payer money on a new stadium by retaining Turner/Smith. Maybe he knows it would never pass anyway and they will have to circumvent the ballot initiative process. I still don't understand why he doesn't come out and say how much he is willing to put towards a stadium. It makes no sense, let us know what you are working with... Can you put in 400 million, 600 million?

This nebulous idea of "we all need to work together" without publicly stating what you can contribute is never going to work. The maximum amount I see the County/City putting in the pot is 300 to 400 million so Spanos and the NFL Stadium fund will have to come up with the rest.

Regarding the Raiders: Why on earth would they want to stay in the Bay Area and share that market with a 49ers team that is clearly on the rise and will start having a bigger piece of that market. The Raiders are so irrelevant, having not had a winning season in 9 to 10 years now. Why not go to Los Angeles and have that all to yourselves. The Bay is going to become more and more Niner territory as they are looking to be in the playoff hunt for years to come while the Raiders wallow away in mediocrity or worse...

I can understand why this proposal would get denied.

Solar and its predecessor companies have occupied the port tideland property since 1927.

So their argument is that the residents could sue because of "hazardous chemicals", yet there's been a restaurant operating there for how many years?

mello Jan 7, 2012 6:57 PM

^^^ Exactly. That is bullsh*t, that project looks really nice. That whole section of Pacific Highway is crap and this would do a lot to improve it. Why not make people who move in there sign something saying that they can't fight the solar turbines air polluting activities? It seems to me there are residences fairly close to the ST plant and everything is fine.

You know what this one is really getting under my skin because in a way that area is kind of San Diego's "Front Porch" as well because it is the first part of the city people drive in to once they arrive at the airport and it really does need a facelift. Why can't common sense prevail here and everyone get together to find a solution instead of canning a really great project?

And it pisses me off that Solar Turbines is essentially holding that area hostage to future development. "Oh you can't build anything near here because we have been operating for years". F**k that!

HurricaneHugo Jan 8, 2012 6:22 AM

I wouldn't call FC nice...needs some more work.

In the meantime I need to go to Denny's while I still can lol

Arent you one of those guys who likes all the environmental laws and regulations?

Besides we have enough apartments under construction in Little Italy at the moment (several last count I made). And we certainly have far too many poorly designed and constructed Segal projects in Little Italy now. His idea of a nicely finished project is to use cinder block as a decorative finish material and put the bedrooms on the main as you walk in the door and the kitchen up stairs.

The turbine company has been there since '27 and before that was Ryan Air. I am sure you never heard of it but they build the Spirit of St. Louis (look it up to since I am sure you are not that much a student of history). They provide good jobs for people who believe in work, maybe like somebody you know.
