Colorado from Chivas Antworten

Residents of San Diego will today vote on whether or not to build a new stadium for the Chargers. The outcome could have wide reaching effects on the future of the franchise, with a possibility of moving the team out of the city if the proposals are rejected. It has been a confusing process from the start, and any outcome is likely to offer more questions than firm answers. However, this is what we know so far. WATCH: Graham hurdles defender Jimmy Graham scored two touchdowns in week nine but it was his hurdle that caught the eye. What is the proposal? Ballot Measure C - the official name for the vote proposes that a new, Super Bowl ready stadium would be built to replace the ageing Qualcomm Stadium, the current home of the San Diego Chargers.The facility would also be used as a trade centre and music venue, available 300 days a year, according to team executives.The stadium would require $1.8 billion, raised by increasing the hotel taxes from 12.5 per cent to 16.5 per cent, as well as $650m pledged by the NFL and Chargers owner Dean Spanos.There is also a separate proposal - Ballot Measure D - which, if passed, gives the Chargers organisation the right to build the stadium but without any public funds. This measure would still raise taxes on hotel occupation, to be used for the construction of the convention centre. Chargers fans have been kept in the dark regarding the franchises future What are the conditions of the vote?To pass, there must be a two-thirds majority in favour of the Chargers stadium plans. However there is potential that, should over 50 per cent of the public vote yes, this may be enough, as the Californian Supreme Court can lower the voting threshold.Who is for/against?Obviously the Chargers are pushing for the move, but they have garnered the support of Mayor Kevin Faulconer. Measure C is also backed by the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce and Downtown San Diego Partnership. The San Diego Taxpayers Association is staunchly against the proposal, claiming that Spanos has spent $5m on a popularity campaign. Current opinion polls would indicate that only 45 per cent of voters would approve Measure C, which would not be enough for a stadium change in the city. Opinion polls suggest only 45 per cent of residents will vote in favour of a new stadium What are the potential outcomes?If the majority is achieved, the Chargers would look to build a stadium in East Village, the largest urban neighbourhood in Downtown San Diego. The increase in tax is predicted to raise $1.15 billion, enough to cover the remainder of the stadiums bill. If the proposals are rejected, but still achieve over 50 per cent of votes, the franchise may look to take legal action and force the bill through.Lower than a 50 per cent result and the chances of the organisation leaving the city increases dramatically. The Chargers have the option of joining the Rams in Los Angeles, but this would need to be agreed by January 2017, and it is clear that a ground share would be neither sides preference. The Chargers have a loyal fan base in San Diego, and a move to a new city would likely mean starting again Moving in with the Oakland Raiders is also an option, as is replacing the Raiders if they were to go Las Vegas. There is even the outside possibility that the Raiders could end up in San Diego if the Chargers left for Los Angeles. However a rejection of the vote doesnt confirm the team moving. They have a contract in Qualcomm until 2020, and even then could negotiate a rolling deal to stay, if it proved to be the best option in the short term.Ultimately the decision is still up in the air, whatever the vote. However the outcome will provide an important gauge for Spanos on the future of the NFL in San Diego.

The 28-year-old from Rochester, Alta., was selected by the Redblacks from the Saskatchewan Roughriders roster in the 2013 CFL Expansion Draft.TORONTO -- In search of depth up front, Toronto FC acquired English striker Luke Moore from the Colorado Rapids on Thursday in exchange for defender Gale Agbossoumonde. With Englands Jermain Defoe possibly headed to the World Cup and reserve forward Bright Dike a long-term casualty due to an Achilles injury, Toronto needed help for Brazils Gilberto with Mondays MLS transfer deadline looming. Toronto also has forwards Andrew Wiedeman and teenager Jordan Hamilton, currently on loan to the Wilmington Hammerheads. Attacking midfielders Dwayne De Rosario, Issey Nakajima-Farran and Brazils Jackson are also an attacking option. Toronto (3-4-0) has just seven goals in seven games, with Defoe accounting for three of them. Thats tied with Los Angeles and Montreal as the lowest scoring output in the league. Agbossoumonde, 22, had fallen down the defensive pecking order with Steven Caldwell, Doneil Henry, Bradley Orr and rookie Nick Hagglund preferred ahead of him. "With our current depth in defence we felt that the opportunity to acquire an attacking player like Luke Moore was the right deccision to make at this time for the club as we approach the World Cup break," Toronto FC general manager Tim Bezbatchenko said in a statement.dddddddddddd "With Lukes experience, he will be a welcomed addition to our squad and provide more options for us up front. Wed like to thank Gale for all of his contributions both on and off the pitch and wish him well in Colorado." Moore was acquired earlier this season by Colorado from Chivas USA. The 28-year-old made six appearances, with two starts and no goals, for Chivas. He arrived in the MLS during the off-season from Turkeys Sanica Boru Elazigspor. Moore began his career in England with Aston Villa in 2003, and later was part of Swanseas rise to the Premier League in 2011. Agbossoumonde, 22, was originally acquired on Dec. 20, 2012 through a weighted lottery at MLS headquarters. In two seasons, the American defender made 13 appearances, including 12 starts. Paul Bravo, Colorados vice-president of soccer operations, called Agbossoumonde "a talented young player who can add depth to our backline." ' ' '
