I am going to get right to the point. A press release was sent out today regarding the Chargers’ thoughts about a December 2015 vote being put in place to keep the Chargers in San Diego. I have been fortunate enough to be in contact with Mark Fabiani, special counsel to the Chargers, about this topic.
Here’s the press release:

Below he provides the reasoning behind why the Chargers and their team don’t believe that a December 2015 vote will work.
By the end of our meetings with the city and county negotiators today, and then with our attorneys afterwards, we came to the conclusion that there was no legally viable way to make a 2015 ballot. It was really that simple. We ran through all of the ideas we had, and that the city ‘s experts had, and concluded that it just wasn’t viable.
