San Diego blackout official, Chargers falls 7,000 tickets short

The San Diego Chargers’ home opener will not be shown on local television.

The Chargers fell about 7,000 tickets short of selling out their non-premium seats for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars, and so the blackout that had been expected is now official.

If the Chargers had wanted the game on local TV, they could have purchased the remaining tickets at 34 cents on the dollar. If the average ticket price were $100, that would mean the Chargers could have had the game on local TV for $238,000. That’s not nothing, but it’s not a huge amount of money for an NFL team. Plus, it’s a write-off for them.

Instead, the Chargers will not be shown on local television for the first time since November 7, 2004. And more blackouts may be coming: The team says more than 10,000 tickets remain for its next home game, October 3 against the Cardinals.

    Pretty pathetic for a playoff team. They should move to LA!

    Any potshots against the Chargers like there usually are against the Jags?
    And people think that So Cal can handle an NFL franchise – come on.

    Bad sports city. Sorry Bolt fans but I used to live there and the fans follow their sports differently. I know some S.D. person will come on and rip me. That’s fine but when you have a top level team like the Cahrgers and you don’t sell out, you can’t refute what I just typed.

  12. Dobre Shunka says: Sep 16, 2010 4:59 PM

    This is almost as pathetic as their annual playoff choke.
    And as much as I hate Marmalard and that SOB GM, I guess they get a pass when you factor in their weather & their women. I mean, they got options in SD, and the Chargers are WAY down the list.

    Wow. Three years ago I wanted to see Pittsburgh v. San Diego and they made me purchase a three-game set. I’m from northern Virginia and wasn’t going to make two more road trips. I donated my unused tickets to the Boys and Girls Club in San Diego so some kids could go see an NFL game. Seems the Chargers could have done the same this time.

    I’m curious how many “obstructed” seats there are at the Q. That seems to be the excuse. I find it hard to believe there are 7K.
    However you can bet your bottom dollar some of the other teams that narrowly made it this week used Florio’s much hyped .34 rule. If your a fan of one of those teams and your mocking SD then your a hypocrite.

  19. Jag4Life says: Sep 16, 2010 5:26 PM

    This year fans aren’t buying tickets but Florio and his little minions say it’s the economy, RedZone, Sunday Ticket and TV technology. Last year the Jaguars fans were just HORRIBLE fans when 17,000 cancelled their season tickets b/c of lost jobs and relocating. Show’s you just how much Florio and national media hates Jax.

  20. Gelardia says: Sep 16, 2010 5:27 PM

    If the team doesn’t care enough to buy the tickets, why should the fans?

    If they lowered their tickets to $9 like Jacksonville did I bet they would have sold out.

  29. YourJustJealous says: Sep 16, 2010 5:53 PM

    Almost $100 a ticket for obstructed view seats(which were only $30 just 4 years ago)
    Overpriced beer
    Overpriced parking
    Sorry folks, this isn’t the Chargers.
    This is just fans finally beginning to use common sense.
    Think about it……. idiot fans of the Cowboys, Giants, and Jets paying tens of thousands of dollars in PSL fees for EACH seat, then paying thousands EACH for season tickets are not the norm, they are the exception.
    BTW, the Cowboys and Jets still havent sold all their PSL seats.
    Smart fans in San Diego, Cincy, Jacksonville, KC, etc. are refusing to line the pockets of rich owners who continue to raise prices, and help spoiled overpaid players become even more overpaid.
    Idiots are making comments about the terrible fanbase of San Diego, when in reality, Charger fans are becoming the smart ones and the idiots still paying outragious prices for a football game are the true dumba$$es.
    Go spend your hundreds of dollars at a game for tickets, more for parking, even more for beer, then spend a couple hours in traffic trying to get back home. What you idiots just spent for ONE game day I can get a FULL season of games on my huge flatscreen with DirecTV, plus 3 or 4 cases of beer, food to feed my family for a week, put money away for retirement, and fund the kids college account.

  30. BCfromHell says: Sep 16, 2010 5:57 PM

    I think this is because the people of San Diego don’t support the first openly gay quarterback in the NFL.

    @ BostonTim
    I’m in the same boat as you. All my friends here are Chargers fans, so I’m forced to root for them… as long as it causes no harm to the Pats.
    The team not buying out the remaining tickets is part of their ploy to get out of here and go to L.A. It’s too bad, because there are plenty of Chargers fans here.
    Maybe if it was $75 to sit in shitty seats and another $10 for a Miller Lite …. oh, and 75 degrees and hot chicks everywhere… they’d fill those seats. :-)

  36. JagsW1r3d says: Sep 16, 2010 6:29 PM

    “Regular working people are sick of paying ridiculous prices to watch whining, overpaid millionaires play a game.”
    —————————————-
    Then again, San Diego typically ALWAYS had a problem selling seats because for YEARS, the city had an agreement with the Chargers to buy up all unsold tickets so that the team could remain on television. Finally, the city got tired of spending the money on the Chargers, especially since the Chargers were always hinting at moving to L.A. even after the city came through for them all those years.
    The problem is that the Chargers, as well as most NFL teams, are relying more and more on the casual fan. But the Chargers fan base, which IS very large on the internet, needs to step up and go to the games to support their team they proclaim to be a fan of.

  41. Bob Nelson says: Sep 16, 2010 7:03 PM

    The Jaguars don’t sell tickets for away games very well either.
    How do you expect the Chargers to sell out when they are playing the Jaguars?

  42. Roger Goodell's a tool. says: Sep 16, 2010 7:03 PM

    Hmmm, pay $150 to go see a game from far away, or watch it at home for free. TV coverage today is so good, I’d rather save my money and watch the game on my couch.
    It’s also a lot harder to take bong rips during the game if you’re at the stadium.

  43. Dasmol says: Sep 16, 2010 7:11 PM

    While it’s true that San Diego does have many fair weather fans, the black outs are the result of a lot of different things. The economy certainly isn’t helping, especially when you consider how expensive it is to live in San Diego. And BoltsFan is right. People are tired of spending money on foolish athletes that don’t seem to realize how good they’ve got it. The simple truth is that San Diegans don’t live for their professional sports like other, true sports towns do. There’s just too much to do on any given Sunday, besides going to a NFL game.
    I notice that the raiduhs aren’t doing much better. Big surprise there, I know.

  48. bresilhac says: Sep 16, 2010 7:33 PM

    No excuses. You people in San Diego are privileged to have your own NFL team. And as such you all should be lining up to buy the final tickets even though it is too late to lift the dreaded blackout.
    So quit whining about the economy, the level of competition and everything else you all complain about and support your team already.
    We here in San Antonio can only wish at this point that we had an NFL club to support. San Diegans are spoiled rotten.

    Southern Cal loves college football. Pro football is alright once in a while. Years ago in the mid 80’s the Rams and the Raiders were playing home playoff games on the same weekend. I traveled out to watch the Pats and hooked up with friends who lived and worked in LA. The interest in the games was not there in the way one experiences it in Boston, NY, Phily Dallas, you name it. The climate might cause this attitude or the price of attending games, but I don’t know why. LA has failed to support two teams already. My idea for the Chargers is to attract fans from remote parts of the country in a tourist package deal combo surf and turf. Come see an NFL game in a nice climate and hit the beach at the same time. Good luck Charger fans as your team was the cream of the old AFL.

    While the Jags financially appear to be the frontrunner for LA, I’ve always said the Chargers make the most sense.
    You can retain much of the fanbase, it’s really not that far from San Diego, LA will likely provide a new Stadium (eventually) while SD has stalled out for years. The 2 markets can essentially share the team.
    If the Jags were to make the move, it would be 4 California teams and 2 SoCal teams, it just isn’t necessary.
    The LA Chargers is not out of the question at all. In fact the Chargers started out in LA back in the day.

  60. midwest says: Sep 16, 2010 9:24 PM

    It is amazing how people want to bash the Jaguars.
    Since 1995 when the Raiders returned to Oakland, they have had 76 of 120 regular season games blacked out.
    So two teams in CA have their home openers blacked out, and the NFL wants to put a franchise in CA?
    It is a failing business model.
    Oh, and there is no excuse for the Chargers not selling out. They can’t use the “we are no good” excuse because they have won the AFC West the last five years in a row.
    Disgraceful!

    San Diego has way more to do on a Sunday afternoon than a lot of other cities. What is the point of a blackout anyhow? Do they really think anyone will say “it isn’t on TV, so we must go buy tickets”. I don’t understand the 150 mile radius either. I live north of Los Angeles and it’s blacked out here too. Most fans that were gonna go to the game are going, so threatening a blackout does absolutely no good. F them.

    I moved to the Midwest to get away from that loopy-freaking state/city. At least my meager money gets me a decent apartment with heat. And sometimes I get to see a September Chargers game where they blow it completely.

    I am a Native San Diegan. I will go to the stadium on sunday and buy a ticket from someone trying to sell a ticket.
    They will be around hopefully, I will spend no more than $40.
    If there are no scalpers around, I will hit da beach with my boom box and turn the game on the radio. I’ll head down to PB broadwalk and celebrate the win with my community of the fine ass native women.
    So to the rest of all the hardcore nfl fans across the US enjoy your life where ever you will be on sunday

    Pat your Left Tackle and best WR and maybe you will sell tickets! Hey do that and you might even beat the Chiefs. Some NFL players get way too much and unfairly you can’t reduce their pay for playing like garbage (cough Haynesworth) but at the same time you cannot expect two players both who are arguably in the top 10 at their position to play for less than $1,000,000 a year. I am all for rookie wage scales but if they prove in the NFL they can play you gotta pay.

  74. marro255 says: Sep 17, 2010 9:04 AM

    Pay players that have earned it. The Chargers are the only team with no player loyalty. Hey thanks for wearing down your body for us LaDanian now get the hell out of here. He Vincent and Marcus great job for us last year, by the way we only want to pay you guys 500k and if you don’t like it go home. This franchise is worthless. Get a new front office and maybe you’ll sell tickets.

    As a Jaguar season ticket holder, I really love reading comments like these, because this is all we heard about *my* team last season. Now San Diego, Tampa, Detroit and a whole bunch of other teams are having the same issues…
    …but that’s not the funniest part. 90% of the wisecrack comments include some mention of Los Angeles. “The L.A. Jaguars”. “The L.A. Chargers”. “The L.A.Buccaneers.”
    What’s so funny is the idea that L.A. will ever get another franchise, and that if they did, people there would actually care and support them.
    From where I’m sitting, based on the truckloads of money the NFL churns every year, and considering the fact that the second largest market in America is sitting out there, I can’t help but wonder why they don’t have a team already. If it was going to happen, it would have happened.

    How come guys from boston always want to tell you that they are from boston, like we couldn’t tell. The invasion of bostonions in s.d. has uglied up our town. Hot gals are afraid to come outside, and the pasty white chicks that you guys bring with you are only good for one thing, drinking beer. The feeling is mutual tom, nobody likes tom brady, believe it or not. Just stick to watching espn, and we will see you at qualcomm on Oct. 24, or are not gonna go and bitch that that game is blacked out.

    I think the NFL needs to wake up…. the average American can’t afford to shell out $200-300 to take his family out to the game — pay $10 for a crappy hot dog, sit in an uncomfortable seat for 3 hours and wait in gridlock to get home.. The beach – free.. Any one of a dozen other awesome activities to do in SA — free. Hell even Sea World is cheaper and that’s an all day thing with FREE parking. I think the NFL needs to wake up — there are a lot more blackouts coming… You need to rethink your greediness.
    Tines have changed.. The economy, albeit it will recover, WILL NEVER be what it was 4 years ago.. That is a sad fact many refuse to face. Our economy will never, ever, be what it was. Time for the NFL to wake up.

    Exactly S3g…
    Two recommendations for blacked out games:
    1. Chargers or CBS-step up and buy the remaining tix. I believe they were 1500 short x 100/ticket is 150,000 bucks. That’s nothing for a network.
    2. You are going to see more of this in the future. People cannot dole out $500 bucks for a day at the old football game.
    3. Blacking out the game will not drive people to the stadium to buy a ticket. It will have the opposite effect : it will drive people away from the NFL.
    If I can’t see home games on TV, I’m done.

    Here’s my question: I live in VENTURA COUNTY– Thousand Oaks— over 150 miles from Qualcomm Stadium and San Diego… so why the heck is it still blacked out EVERYWHERE around here?!?!?! I thought the NFL rule was 75 mile radius!

    Maybe if the Stupor Chargers didn’t have such a bitch for a QB, people would be more inclined to buy tickets. Phyllis Rivers is an embarrassment!
