Emotions were all over the place on Friday afternoon after news first broke that the Chargers had reached a deal to share a stadium with the Rams – only to announce an hour later the team would stay in San Diego for the 2016 season.
Hundreds of fans took to Twitter and Facebook to express confusion, frustration, relief and a number of other emotions mixed in.
Many people questioned whether this meant the team would only be here another year before moving to LA.
“If I'm a Chargers fan, should I be happy they are playing one more year in SD or feel betrayed beyond all belief?” Duncan Marshall tweeted.
“Chargers playing next year in San Diego won't be awkward at all,” Doug Gottlieb echoed in a tweet.
Some fans expressed outright joy at the surprising turn of events. Others called it “schizophrenic.”
“I was just reading this. What a schizophrenic process this has been, crazy. I fully expect to read tomorrow that the Raiders are definitely coming to San Diego,” Jonathan Sasse commented on NBC 7’s Facebook page.
