August 31, 2015 (San Diego) – In exclusive interviews with the East County Magazine Show on KNSJ Radio (89.1 FM) aired today, Dan Jauregui, better known as “Boltman” and prominent attorney James Quinn shared strategies to keep the Chargers in town.
"It's been an emotional roller coaster," says Jauregui, who likens the Chargers' secret dealings with the city of Carson in Los Angeles to "finding out your spouse is cheating...As fans, we're going to take a stand." Jaregui, on behalf of fans, accuses the NFL of operating as a monopoly. He has sent a letter to City Attorney Jan Goldsmith asking the City to file a lawsuit to keep the Chargers in town.
Quinn, via phone interview in New York, says the City of San Diego has a strong legal case against the National Football League (NFL) for violating the Sherman Anti-Trust Act and its own NFL charter. Quinn has sued the NFL several times on anti-trust grounds—and has a 100% winning track record. But so far, the City has punted on its option to file suit--and Boltman is leading fans in a charge to persuade the City to score a win for fans at the courthouse.
