This is from an outsider’s perspective so take with a grain of salt, but is the team really “gone”? Sure they won’t have San Diego in front of the name but all the games will still be on the local market I presume. The stadium is still driving distance away. I live in the same state as my home team and it’s over a two hour drive to get to the stadium. Hell, anyone who has season tickets could theoretically still keep them and still go to all games! How many relocated team fan bases can say that?
