Game On! Blackout Lifted for Chargers Home Opener!

Whew, that was a close one.  Fortunately, someone stepped in and purchased enough of the remaining 3,500 seats that the Chargers needed to sell to avoid the local blackout.  This means that all of the fans who will not be at the Q for the Monday Night Football home opener against the Houston Texans will get to watch it on TV real time.

You can watch the game on ESPN and KUSI San Diego.  Chris Berman and Trent Dilfer will call the action for ESPN.

    I am a huge Chargers fan living in NY and having such mixed feelings about this almost blackout. I have visited the city and I love it and never want the Chargers to leave but if you have a hard time selling out your home opener, on Monday night, against one of the best teams in the AFC, with the excitement of new management, then something is seriously wrong there. I know they have had a few down years but the serious fans there need to start buying tickets or you can’t complain when they move. It would not be a smart business move to stay. LA would sell out every week. Don’t take for granted what you have now.

      I understand the frustration, however the Chargers have 71,000 seats to fill in a smaller market. It should be more like 50 or 60,000. Which it was before the “renovation” expanded the seating capacity by little over 10,000 seats. Add to that a fan base that is still feeling the burned disappointment of the last three seasons, and not have Gruden, or Cowher as the Head Coach and some help from the media, people assume more of the same to come. That this team won’t be good for some time.
      I’m in the minority that team will do better than expected, but I just couldn’t afford to go to the game.
