Contrary to what Mr. Acee says, I don't believe having VJ or MM in the fold would lift blackouts or even change ticket sales very much.

Damn this beautiful weather! It makes us fair weather fans! :cool:

That's really odd. It's almost a guaranteed win.

I never lose faith in the Chargers ability to grasp defeat out of the ever tightening jaws of victory. :thumb:

Lol. That's smart, then you can never be disappointed! Because you anticipate both results! Nice.

I really hate the NFL policy towards blackouts.

For a company that sure has a lot of blue collar fans. They certainly don't mind holding them hostage.

Sometimes the working man simply cannot afford buying tickets to a football game. So, what does the NFL do? They black the game out on local stations.

The NFL policy is:

"If you can't afford to come to the stadium and buy our expensive items and expensive tickets, you cannot watch the game at home."

If the Padres keep losing like they have been I might actually buy into all this talk of San Diego and choking. :paper:

I had season tickets since I graduated high school - I bought two tickets for my 18th birthday. I took my Dad, friends, girl friends, and eventually my wife for 14 years....until my job moved me to the Pacific Northwest. But, I still fly down for at least one game a year and often two.

I don't understand how a team that has won the AFC West 5 out of the last 6 seasons not only doesn't sell out....but, also doesn't have a waiting list.

It is inexcusable.

I think SD just isn't much of a Football town. Since moving from SD and back to Colorado it has become much more apparent. Can't say it's because the money isn't there, because it is, and lots of it. And I'm not saying Colorado>SD or whatever, I just don't think that people are as into the NFL there as in other areas.

Nope you're certainly on the right track but trust me this subject deserves a thread all its own.
