BREAKING: Anschutz To Purchase Piece Of Chargers

((HT: FAN590 Toronto))

THE FAN 590's Bob McCown, on his afternoon "Prime Time Sports" program is reporting that billionaire Philip Anschutz either has or will be purchasing up to 35% of the NFL's San Diego Chargers, with the intent of moving the Chargers to Los Angeles.

The Spanos family announced their intent to sell that portion a while back, and now it looks like the first stage of removing the Chargers from the Qualcomm Stadium lease issues in the past years.

Here's some sound from 2009 involving California assemblyman Nathan Fletcher and his attempts to ask AB 81XXX be amended to forbid the City of Industry's environmental regulations exemption from being leveraged to lure any existing California-based professional sports team to the new City of Industry stadium.

His amendment failed by a vote of 29-22...

And an interview with The Voice of San Diego's Liam Dillon on KPBS-TV's "The Reporters" discussing the legal issues of a new San Diego stadium last football season...

More when we know more...
