Chargers reject stadium proposal
SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Chargers have rejected a developer's proposal to build a $1 billion stadium as part of a redevelopment of the land surrounding Qualcomm Stadium.
Norv Turner believes the Chargers will be better than last season and has aspirations for a championship.
Southern California's only NFL team has said since 2002 it needs a new stadium to remain financially competitive.
Fabiani, the team's lead negotiator on the stadium issue, says the Chargers spent several years and millions of dollars trying to make a project work.
The proposal would have included a 70,000-seat stadium, a hotel and other amenities.
