    Maybe they should have ponied up some $$ to build a new stadium, or share in the cost.

    Developers for the new L.A. Stadium and Entertainment District announced on Thursday that the opening date for the future home of the Los Angeles Chargers has been moved to the summer of 2020. Click here to read the developers full statement on the decision.

    Since breaking ground last November, notable progress has been made on the much-anticipated project. Construction teams have fully excavated over six million cubic yards of dirt, while piles to support the stadium bowl and foundations for the roof structure are in place.

    However, a number of factors led to the decision to push the opening of the new stadium at Hollywood Park from 2019 to 2020.

    First off, record-setting rainfall over the winter created significant delays from January through March. Extensive climate research done before construction began allotted for a budget of 30 days for the entirety of the construction. However, the six-month timeframe from October through April alone produced 120-percent the amount of rain for a typical year. In fact, in January the region was on pace for the fifth-wettest winter in eighty years.

    The heavy rainfall occurred during a critical time as there was nowhere for the water to go but to the bottom of a 70-foot deep hole. As a result, construction wasn’t able to proceed on other phases of the site. The new target date of 2020 affords additional flexibility while allowing construction to continue on a more conventional pace.

    As a result, the Chargers will now play at StubHub Center through the 2019 season.

    Our division is all weird now. At least KC stayed put so we can always look forward to games in Arrowhead.
