After being on the back end of jokes for the past two days the newly Los Angeles Charges have decided to trash their logo idea.When the Chargers revealed on Thursday they would be moving from San Diego to Los Angeles, it didn’t exactly set the sports world on fire, it was the revealing of their logo that caught the attention of millions.
The newly announced LA team were quickly roasted for their logo by fans across the nation.
Everyone was quick to point out how much the logo resembles their now partner team the Los Angeles Dodgers and hockey team Tampa Bay Lightning.

It even got to the point where the Tampa Bay lightning’s twitter account had to clarify they are just friends with the Dodgers.
While it was all jokes to us fans, the organization admitted it was a huge mistake. Chargers’ president of business operations Dean Spanos said in a statement that “we have clearly miscalculated how the logo would be received and we’ve taken it out of rotation.”
The Chargers have now changed the look of their logo and certainly won’t make the mistake of creating another logo similar to another team unless team executives enjoy being roasted.
