Watch: Dean Spanos gets booed by Chargers fans in Mexico City
Dean Spanos is not a popular man among the Los Angeles Chargers’ fanbase.
Appearing at an NFL event in the buildup to the Chargers’ Monday Night Football game against the Kansas City Chiefs in Mexico City, Spanos, the team’s owner, addressed a gathering of fans. He was greeted by a hearty mix of cheers and boos that gave way to exclusively jeers once he started speaking.

Spanos was the man who engineered the Chargers’ controversial move from San Diego to Los Angeles. Many San Diego fans were left bitter, and the team has not really attracted increased support after the move. This is hardly the first time the Chargers owner has taken heat from his own fanbase, but it’s certainly clear evidence that those old wounds haven’t healed at all.
