Dean Spanos: ‘I've Said Everything I Have to Say'

Chargers' owner arrives in Houston for NFL owners meeting

San Diego Chargers'‬ owner Dean Spanos arrived Monday to the NFL owners meeting in Houston, Texas, where a vote could end the football franchise's stay in America's Finest City.

When asked if he had anything to say to the city before the owners vote on the team's proposal to move to Los Angeles, Spanos said, "I think I've said everything I have to say."

Accompanied by his son, A.G. Spanos, and Special Counsel Mark Fabiani, Dean Spanos stopped and said a few words, reiterating he has been working on the Carson deal with the Oakland Raiders for more than a year so he has no plans to abandon Mark Davis.

Whatever the outcome of this week's vote, "We'll abide by it," Spanos said.

The Chargers have played in San Diego for 55 seasons but filed for relocation to Los Angeles because the team believes the City of San Diego is unable to get the public funding needed to build a new stadium to replace the aging Qualcomm Stadium.

Spanos recently claimed the team has offered nine stadium proposals to the City of San Diego in the past 14 years.

In many of those proposals, Chargers ownership did not negotiate a team financing plan.

The rest of the NFL owners are expected to arrive by Monday night. Meetings start on Tuesday and the vote on Los Angeles relocation is expected to take place on Wednesday.
