If the Raiders don't move to Los Angeles in the near future, there's a chance that the team could end up in San Diego.
According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Raiders owner Mark Davis has "made it known" that San Diego would become a serious option for his team if things in LA don't work out.
Davis didn't even bother denying that recently, saying that he's "open to anything."
Iger knows the Los Angeles area inside and out, and according to La Canfora, the Disney CEO's Carson duties will include stadium design, naming rights and fan experience. Iger will also be responsible for guiding construction and the operation of the facility.
Although Iger adds some serious clout to the project, the Raiders and Chargers do still have one big problem: They don't have enough votes within the league to make the move happen.
For any team to relocate, it needs to get 24 of the 32 NFL owners to support the move, and right now, La Canfora estimates that the Raiders-Chargers plan has "16 to 20."
Kroenke has promised that his stadium will be able to accomodate two teams, which could set the stage for a co-tenant. If that co-tenant is the Chargers, then the Raiders will be on their own.
The Chargers have made it clear that if there's any chance they're going to stay in San Diego, they want a stadium built downtown. If the city refuses and moves forward with its plans to build another Mission Valley stadium, you would think a team like the Raiders would find the city of San Diego very appealing.
