Philip Rivers might throw up if the Raiders move to San Diego

There's a small chance Philip Rivers could be on a visiting team at Qualcomm Stadium. The home team? A hated rival.

Philip Rivers dodged one nightmarish relocation scenario only to be confronted with an even worse one.

The Oakland Raiders? Taking the Chargers’ spot in San Diego? That rumor might be enough to make the star quarterback sick.

Rivers, via Mighty 1090 AM:

“That one is going to get me a little nauseated, to be honest with you. The thought of that one is a little sickening. That one is hard to stomach. It’s hard enough thinking about moving…”

Rivers might not have the constitution for stadium politics. If the Raiders find the best stadium deal in "America’s Finest City," that’s where they’ll end up.

But there’s something just off about the idea of the San Diego Raiders. Rivers thinks it’d be a shame to waste 55 years of history by welcoming such a bitter foe in.

Said Rivers:

“It's more than wins and losses. The thought of the Raiders being here and us not might be tougher than all the rest.”
