And I got a few e-mails, including:
Scott, just because National City has seemingly bowed out doesn’t mean it won’t end up there. Glendale was not the first choice for the new Arizona Cardinals stadium, but the site selection defaulted back to Glendale when the other options dropped out. Your prediction may still come through.
OK, maybe I did know what I was talking about. But, as Fabiani wrote today, the cost of a regular stadium has skyrocketed. National City’s proposed site would be even more costly because of its cramped space and its numerous challenges.
And a reader sent in his own prediction:
My prediction is that we (the citizens of San Diego), see Montgomery Field as the newest location touted for a new Chargers stadium. Is that a bit of a stretch? Maybe not.
Maybe they could build a dome and put the little airport on top of it. That’d make the towering Sunroad Enterprises building less of a height hazard, right?
