San Diego blackout lifted for 49ers-Chargers

antoniogates

The Chargers got a blackout extension on Monday, and now they’ve sold enough tickets Tuesday for the blackout to be lifted and Thursday’s game against the 49ers to be televised in San Diego.

The game will be shown on NFL Network and on the FOX affiliate in San Diego.

Technically, the game isn’t a sellout, with a limited number of seats, including some club seats, still available. But the Chargers have sold enough tickets to get a home game on local TV for the third straight week.

Although the Chargers are 7-6 and the 49ers are 5-8, Thursday night’s game is actually a big one, with playoff implications for both teams. San Diego and San Francisco are each just one game out of first place in their respective divisions.

    What? You mean there weren’t 10’s upon 10’s of people waiting in line to watch the overrated Phillip Rivers?!?!

    If you think Rivers is over rated you should just switch to watching billards or something, you obviously have no clue what you’re talking about.

    fthrvic…Over rated? Really? With all the different WR he’s thrown to this year, most of them practice squad guys and made them look like they were #2 and #3 type guys? Yeah he’s over rated…you should keep cheering for your Cardinals with that solid QB.

    Now why would a team that is battling for first place in their division even NEED an extension to avoid a blackout? OH..that’s right, it’s because the fan base sucks…

    Raise a glass to a 49er win and the Dolts moving to LA next year!!

    playoff scenario game, a must win – we’ve seen this before ….Norv Turner and his team will find a way to lose unfortunately.

    Chargers will be the most talented team that misses out on the playoffs …it’s a shame

    49ers 26 Chargers 21

    (Chargers commit 3 turnovers)

    Actually, my Chargers have already passed on their escape clause for the 2011 season, ensuring that they will definitely play in the 2nd worst stadium in the NFL (was the worst until the Metrodome imploded) next year, which is not in L.A. so your failed attempt at a jab to San Diego Charger fans is not just juvenile, it’s also misguided and factually inaccurate.

    Will the Chargers play in San Diego in 2012? Well, that’s another matter, and my assumption is ‘no,’ unless the city government can entice them to stay by approving a new stadium with a deadset location and some public funding.

    Please do some research before posting, especially if you’re trying to be quippy, because when you’re wrong, it makes you look ironic and stupid.

    You were however accurate, that our fanbase sucks. No argument. There are plenty of die-hard Chargers fans here and throughout southern California, but it’s still a mediocre sized market with limited successful franchise history. Also, a heavy portion of our citizenry are transplants, not native to the area and thus less likely to support the home team. Add to that, the fact that we still have beach weather in the middle of December, you can start to realize why it might be a little difficult to fill our horrible stadium.

    Thanks.
