The Fight for LA skys

Raised by 744 people in 18 months
Have you been an NFL fan your whole life only to have your team suddenly taken away from your city? You may have been the most loyal and dedicated supporter but it didn't matter in the end. Have you ever wanted to tell the NFL how you actually feel? This is your chance.

I'm born and raised here in San Diego. I've been a die hard San Diego Charger fan my whole life. I haven't missed a game in 25 years. The fact that Dean Spanos knew he was moving the Chargers years ago and tried to blame the people of San Diego for only getting 43% on Prop C is a disgrace. In 2013, The Chargers and San Diego State met to discuss the outdated jumbotron at Qualcomm Stadium. San Diego State offered to pay for HALF of a jumbotron that would be one of the biggest in the NFL and college football. And the Chargers? They declined. Why would the Chargers decline to make their fan experience better? Because they knew they were going to LA years ago. Prop C was the definition of a hoax.

I'm here today to bring us together and help San Diego, St. Louis and Oakland cope with the loss of their respective teams. My plan is to rent a few billboards in LA that will be anti-NFL and anti-Dean Spanos. All of this just in time for the first ever "LA Chargers" home opener vs the Miami Dolphins on September 17th, 2017. The Chargers have three home games in a row and the billboards will be up not just for the first game but all three.

This isn't just for San Diego fans. This is for Oakland fans and St. Louis fans as well. Your cities didn't deserve this and most importantly, you didn't deserve this. I can't get into too much detail about where and what the billboards will say, but I definitely plan on putting "#Oakland and #STL" on the anti-NFL billboard for the fans in Oakland and St. Louis. Roger Goodell keeps talking about how "painful" relocation is for the NFL. The NFL doesn't care about us at all. Roger Goodell makes 34 million dollars a year and could care less about the people in San Diego, Oakland or St. Louis. It's time for us to stick it to the NFL by having these billboards in LA call them out on their bullshit.

To all of the LA Charger fans out there, I have no beef with you - seriously. From the 2006 team to the 2000 team, we've been Charger fans forever - through the good and the bad times. There is no reason for there to be any animosity between us. I was at the LA Rally when the Chargers were introduced. When I was there I met some really knowledgeable Charger fans and they understood my frustration. In fact this could bring us together. Let's be real - as long as the Chargers have a Spanos as an owner, they'll never win a championship. How did The Chargers handle LT? Seau? Weddle? They released Rodneny Harrsion. How did they end 56 years with city? A letter. Even if they were still here, it's a poorly run organization. If anything we should be uniting so that Dean sells the team and the Chargers have a real chance at success!

I promise you a great billboard with a powerful message to the NFL and Dean Spanos.

Make sure to stay current with this year's flyovers gofundme page!

We had Bleacher Report , Sports illustrated, ESPN and Ice Cube all cover or tweet about the flyovers this year, we must not stop. Dean Spanos can't be let off the hook so easy, let's not forget he tired to get the FAA to stop us from flying last year. Learning from people who know Dean Spanos personally, everyone knows that Dean is extremely awkward and hates when people talk about him in any sort of negative way. The flyovers CLEARLY get to him and make him upset, especially John and AG. This is why we must keep flying for that exact reason. The NFL commissioner saw our planes flyover the stadium two weeks ago, he knows that these planes are coming from San Diegans. We must keep San Diego in the minds of the NFL. You all saw the report of the Chargers not being viable in LA, we must keep the pressure on! love you guys!

Last year was so successful, really cant put into words but it was mostly to do with every single person who donated.

Less than 24 hours and already 1/3 of the way! Keep it up everyone this is the best Idea ever. SD Sign Guy you are a Hero to the fans who believe the Chargers belong in San Diego and the NFL ( No Fucking Loyalty) League need to know how we truly feel! The fact they want a city to pay for a stadium used by Billionaires in a Multi billion dollar league is outrageous. The city isnt gonna pay for our new warehouse at work so why should they pay for the NFL's stadium. NFL is a business and needs to pay for their own damn stadiums and stop taking teams away from Cities and showing zero loyalty to the fans. Fuck Spanos Fuck LA Fuck Goodell and the NFL.

I can't wait for L.A. fans to find out what a joke this ownership really is. I hope the Chargers fail big time in L.A. and Spanos is forced to sell to an owner that is committed to winning because they sure are not.

I think this is hilarious. None of you people whined when the Chargers were located IN San Diego FROM Los Angeles. And, it is impossible for me to feel sorry for St. Louis. The Rams were a Los Angeles team before leaving and heading to St Louis, and St. Louis gave a shit whether LA was without a team for decades, or not. Turnabout is fair play here St. Louis. If the San Diego fans wanted the Chargers so damned much, you would have supported them far better, and built a new stadium, AND demanded a far better, and more competitive team then you had. The Chargers are a team that demands mediocrity, not excellence. Their Lead footed QB will never get them into the playoffs. Instead of making the Chargers a loved and respected team, and filled the stadium, like Green Bay, You demanded nothing from the Chargers, who were a NFL disgrace. Now they're gone and you're bitching and whining about it like you were owed something. SD, you should have done a better job, but like the team, you are settlers, you settle for mediocrity.

Baron Hilton in 1960 lost over 900K (quoted from "Another League) that I have a copy of. This is a sure sign that the present Charger owner is going to lose his family fortune big time. LA has never wanted the Chargers and do not want them now! We have the Aztecs and they are #22 on the AP poll. Support them they will not break your heart!

When Kroenke moved the Rams to Los Angeles he convinced the NFL and any future suitor that St Louis could not support an NFL team. This is simply untrue. During the years they went 2 - 14, 3 - 13 we supported the Rams. For almost 10 years the Rams had the biggest losing percentage of any team from any sport and yet St Louis supported them! Now because of his BS St Louis will probably never have another NFL team or NBA team for that matter! Kroenke has the world convinced we can't support them! Support had nothing to do with it. It was all about greed and money in his pocket. Well fuck Stan Kroenke! And fuck Spanos and Fuck the NFL!
