The Los Angeles football world has been going at 110 miles an hour in the last few weeks when news broke that St Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke quietly purchased 60 acres of parking lot between the Hollywood Park Racetrack and the Forum, land that could be used for an NFL stadium.

One team, that will not be making any moves up North to Los Angeles County is the San Diego Chargers who announced on the team website that they are staying in San Diego and will continue talks with the city regarding getting a new stadium.

Mark Fabiani, Special Counsel to the President of the San Diego Chargers said the team will not execute their annual option to opt out of their Qualcomm Stadium lease.

"The team is continuing to work, as we have for more than a decade, on stadium solutions in San Diego, and we will not be triggering the out clause in our lease in 2014,” Fabiani said.

So that ends all speculations about the Chargers, who has an annual clause in the contract with the city of San Diego that says they can terminate the lease at any time between February 1 and May 1 of each calendar year with the delivery by the team to the City of a termination fee. Each year since 2007.
