    Jeez, thanks for the bulliten board material, NFL. Of course this would come out 2 days before the game.

    You know if the Pats win, we'll hear about how "disrespectful" it was of the league to discuss this.
    "...of course that's just my opinion, I could be wrong."

      smh. Agreed, BB will add this on his 'emphasis' list.

      So, if the Rams and Eagles win, and Colts and Chargers win, and they do this Sunday/Monday thing, the Chargers will get screwed with the turf getting beat up, and anyone interested in watching this game live will have to be stuck in LA traffic all day Monday.

      I still think a conspiracy that the league is actively moving to not allowing a game at 'Dignity Health' via officials is unfounded, but I can see them planning for a contingency to allow for a more appropriate venue for a championship game.

        If the game is going to be moved from the HUB ( whatever it is now ), why not to the RoseBowl? No football games there so the field should be in good condition and it holds 100K.

                “No way” AFC title game would be moved

                Russell Okung may be right.

                Okung believes the league wants to keep the Chargers from hosting the AFC championship because the league doesn’t want the game to be played in the team’s undersized soccer stadium. In response to a report from Jason La Canfora of CBS that conversations have occurred regarding the possibility of moving the game, a Chargers source tells PFT that there is “no way” the game would be moved from Dignity Healthy Sports Park, previously known as StubHub Center.

                The Chargers and AEG have a firm and binding contract requiring the game to be played at the facility. AEG would have to relinquish its contractual rights, and per the Chargers source that simply isn’t going to happen.

                This is consistent with the information PFT obtained when first exploring this issue, at a time when the Chargers had a very good chance at securing the No. 1 seed. The issue currently remains moot unless the sixth-seeded Colts win on Saturday and the fifth-seeded Chargers win on Sunday. If/when those outcomes occur, full details will be provided as to how the Chargers and the league plan to stage one of the biggest games of the year at the smallest stadium in the league, by far.

                  A 3 Stooges episode comes to mind here.

                  "You can't bribe me!"

                  "Me either!"

                  "Me too!" (grabs the money)


                  This is nothing a little $ can't solve.

                    They must be hoping the Chiefs lose too to have this article come out.

                      Nothing a little home town officiating cant solve this Sunday.
                      Moving to LA is not a good business decision, it’s a death sentence.

                        I feel fully vindicated. Motive is being solidified.
