Bob Iger Has Helped Viability Of Carson Project

Dec 7, 2015 1:31 PM

Bob Iger joined the Chargers and Raiders plan for Carson last month, which has already been beneficial for its viability. 

“He feels like a partner to people like Roger Goodell and Bob Kraft,” said one source.

Iger is CEO of Disney.

There has been more support for the Spanos family within the NFL as the sentiment is they've done everything within their power to make San Diego work.

Some owners view the Raiders as a drag on the Carson project and that it would have 24 votes to win if they weren't included.
