NHL’s Lightning Troll LA Chargers Over New Logo

The NFL announced Thursday the San Diego Chargers are moving to Los Angeles, becoming the second team in a calendar year to relocate.

Chargers owner Dean Spanos announced the decision to move from San Diego, the organization’s home for the past 56 years, in a letter to fans Thursday morning. The Chargers will play the 2017 season at Cal State Dominguez Hills’ StubHub Center — a 30,000-seat venue — which will serve as the organization’s temporary home until the completion of a stadium they’ll share with the LA Rams.

Needless to say San Diego-based fans didn’t take the news well once it began trickling out.

The Chargers’ new logo is…. something, an odd blend of the Dodgers’ logo and that of the NHL’s Tampa Bay Lighting.

It left a glaring opening for the Chargers to be trolled, and the Lightning kindly obliged.

The Dallas Stars also got in on the action.

Oh boy. This is getting out of hand.

LA will now host two NFL teams for the first time since 1994, when the Raiders and Rams departed for Oakland and St. Louis, respectively. The Washington Redskins will play the Chargers at StubHub Center in 2017.
