Not a great start for the Los Angeles Chargers
This morning, Chargers chairman Dean Spanos announced the inevitable by confirming the Chargers NFL franchise would be moving to Los Angeles next season. Things are already moving fast, as the team has already changed their Twitter handle and update their avatar.
The Chargers have been in San Diego for 56 seasons, so the move is a blow to a lot of fans and some players. The Chargers join the Los Angeles Rams as the second team in LA after the city had no team for over 20 years.
Fans went in on the move, particularly the new logo. Check out the reactions below and let us know what you think of the move in the comments.

The Chargers' new logo looks like the logo of a football team in a movie where there's a football game but the movie isn't about football.— Kyle Madson (@KyleAMadson) January 12, 2017
