"Atlanta is extending a tax increase to finance that stadium. Now, the stadium advisory group has said that's not in the cards, and so we're probably not going to be able to do something like that," said Eric Bruvold.
The Advisory Group said it is looking at a stadium more appropriate to San Diego.
"Now the issue is going to be will the Chargers be happy with that? One of the things that's driving this is this desire to maximize revenues inside the stadium," said Bruvold.
On Good Morning San Diego, Erik Bruvold said his study suggested that a low-end stadium would not generate the revenues the team would need to be competitive with other teams.
