SAN DIEGO (AP) - The Chargers have issued a stinging rebuke to the city and county's plans for a new $1.1 billion stadium, making it look increasingly doubtful the long-running, contentious issue can be solved by City Hall's Sept. 11 deadline to have a deal in place to qualify for a January vote.
At a sun-drenched news conference overlooking aging Qualcomm Stadium, Mayor Kevin Faulconer unveiled a financing plan, architectural renderings for a new stadium and a draft, 6,000-page environmental impact report.
Chargers point man Mark Fabiani criticized the "hastily prepared" EIR, saying, "The Chargers have been clear from the start that the franchise will not be the City's guinea pig for this inevitably ill-fated legal experiment. "
San Diego officials made a presentation to the NFL's Committee on Los Angeles Opportunities in Chicago. The team will update all owners on Tuesday.
