Did Chargers tip move to Los Angeles with social media change?
The Chargers are in talks with the Rams about a potential move from San Diego to Los Angeles, and a social media change the organization made may have tipped their plans.
On Tuesday, the Chargers changed their Snapchat logo from one that mentions “San Diego” to one that does not. Observe:

The Chargers have a year to decide whether they will join the Rams in Los Angeles. If they decline the opportunity to do so, the Raiders would have the chance to negotiate. If the Chargers decide to move to LA, they also have to determine whether they would remain in San Diego for another year or play the 2016 season at the Coliseum, which is what the Rams will be doing while their stadium is under construction.
A report on Monday said the Rams and Chargers had come to an impasse in their talks. The NFL has a March 23 deadline for the Chargers to inform them of their plans for the upcoming season.
