Chargers moving to L.A. for the 2012 season?

As most who are in the know with the Jacksonville Jaguarsknow, the Jaguars are not moving to Los Angeles as long as Wayne Weaver owns the football team. I've been saying for years that the biggest candidates to move to Los Angeles are the San Diego Chargers, St. Louis Rams, Oakland Raiders, and Minnesota Vikings. You know..., teams with actual stadium issues and lease expiration's. Well, according to T.J. Simers of the LA Times, it looks as if it's very likely the Chargers will be playing in Los Angeles in 2012... in the Coliseum.

If Tim Leiweke does his job over the next year in laying the groundwork for a downtown events center, expect the Chargers to announce shortly after Feb. 1, 2012, they will be here to start the 2012 season, probably playing in the Coliseum.

Talk to anyone who has spent time with Chargers owner Dean Spanos - and Spanos already has a pretty good idea of the endgame. Ordinarily, that's a loss in the playoffs, but now it's all about moving to L.A.
