Chula Vista Mayor Cheryl Cox accused the Chargers of deliberately withholding crucial information from the city and keeping the public "in the dark" about a report on the feasibility of building a stadium on the South Bay city's waterfront, the voiceofsandiego.org reported.
The statements came in a call Cox made to voiceofsandiego.org reporter Scott Lewis, after this post. And they followed a letter the mayor sent to the team making the same claims. All of it provoked an immediate -- and somewhat insulting -- response from the team deriding her and accusing her of not ever sincerely supporting the effort to help the team find a suitable alternative in the city, the voiceofsandiego.org reported.
Chargers' Special Counsel Mark Fabiani reportedly said the team did research the finances of a bay-front stadium and that it decided against writing a full report because it would have concluded such a deal was impossible in the current economic environment.
