Dodgers News: Reaction To Eerily Similar Los Angeles Chargers Logo

Chargers owner Dean Spanos announced on Thursday the decision to uproot the franchise and relocate to Los Angeles. The move came prior to Tuesday’s deadline for Spanos to decide whether or not to remain in San Diego. The NFL extended the deadline by 48 hours after meetings at their headquarters.

Like the Rams, the Chargers return to their roots of sorts as the franchise originated in Los Angeles. While waiting for the Rams’ Inglewood stadium to be built, the Chargers will use the 30,000-seat capacity StubHub Center, which is located on the Cal State Dominguez Hills campus.

The 56-year run in San Diego came to an unfortunate end, as fans were loyal to their beloved football team even with a string of mediocre results. However, the Chargers’ fate was all but sealed when citizens rejected a city measure to provide funding for the team’s new stadium.

With their move to Los Angeles, the Chargers unveiled a new logo that bears a striking resemblance to that of the Dodgers. Reaction to the Chargers’ logo thus far has not been favorable.

According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, the Chargers’ new logo is not yet permanent:

The Chargers at this point are not expected to change from the uniforms they wore while in San Diego.

This year Southern California will boast two teams from the NBA, NFL, NHL and MLB, plus major collegiate football programs in UCLA and USC.
