Chargers owner Dean Spanos and Rams owner Stan Kroenke could curry enough ownership support to nullify the other's relocation plans.
Or, as Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego reports, the two teams could collaborate on a mutually-beneficial plan to put a team or two in Los Angeles.
Such a tactic would benefit the NFL as well. A league-wide vote wouldn't need to be issued if several plans melt into one solid one. That means owners like Spanos and Kroenke wouldn't have to oppose each other.
