In their attempt to figure out if they’re going to be roommates in a brand new NFL stadium in Inglewood, the Chargers and Rams will be holding a series of negotiating meetings over the next few days.
The two sides wrapped up their first session on Monday afternoon. Soon after the conclusion Chargers Special Counsel Mark Fabiani released the following:
JOINT STATEMENT FROM THE RAMS AND CHARGERS
January 18, 2016
We have concluded our first meeting. We mutually have agreed not to publicly discuss details of this or any future meeting.
Yes, thank you. That’s very helpful. Basically both sides are saying, “We understand the desire for information on this topic but you have to give us some space to do our jobs.”
Chargers owner Dean Spanos and Rams owner Stan Kroenke were reportedly not at Monday's get-together.
Odds are the meetings will be wrapped up and a decision will be made by the end of the week. Hopefully they will break their proposed silence long enough to tell us what that decision is.
