Blackout lifted for Ravens-Chargers game at “Snapdragon Stadium”

Philip Rivers, Jeromey Clary, Louis Vasquez AP

Last week, the Chargers were unable to sell the last 5,000 non-premium tickets to a home game against the Bills.  This week, the Chargers found a way to move the final 2,000 non-premium tickets to a home game against the Ravens.

The Chargers have announced that Sunday night’s game will indeed be televised locally, on KNSD in San Diego and KNBC in Los Angeles and Orange County.

It’s unknown whether fans actually bought the tickets, or whether the team and the local NBC affiliates came together to fork over 34 cents on the dollar for all unsold seats.  Either way, folks will be able to watch the Bolts in their throwback powder-blue uniforms, in the hopes that the Ravens once again will stumble on the road against an inferior foe.

Meanwhile, the Chargers will announce tomorrow that the venue traditionally known as Qualcomm will be known, on a temporary basis, as Snapdragon Stadium.

Apparently, Snapdragon is one of Qualcomm’s products.  We’d explain it further, but this is a for-profit enterprise and Qualcomm hasn’t offered us a profit for doing so.

    They should switch to those powder blue uniforms full-time.

    Who cares about blackouts…this is isn’t the NBA

    “Snapdragon Stadium”? They named a stadium after my ex-wife’s vagina?

    Snapdragon is a family of SoC (system-on-chip) microprocessors. They’re used in a lot of cell phones, primarily HTC and Sony models.

    why do their fans suck?

    LA Chargers!

    Hey Vegas691, the stadium smells really bad…so yes, it was named after your ex-wife’s vagina.

    LOL Vegas: If you ex had that esteemable quality – I can understand why you fell for her.

    And as for Charger fans “sucking” – hey – with a total Arse for a GM – aka – the Lord of NO Rings – who has been presiding over the emasculation of the team for the past 5 plus years, and a milquetoast Coach who has never been a winner as a head coach (and also now seems challenged at times as even an O coordinator) – plus an owner/Trust Baby – who just hangs out at the Country Club – and with the team in all probability moving to LA – why should the fans turn out?

    Coming from a Ravens fan, I am not sure this team is “inferior.” Which may be good for us.

    It’s good to know that this site only transfers info if it can make money off it.

    Hello LA got room for us?

  15. rarson says: Dec 16, 2011 12:48 AM

    @wetpaperbag3

    What’s so obvious about it? Qualcomm doesn’t manufacture cell phones anymore, so I imagine most people on a football site probably have no idea what “Snapdragon” is.

    Chargers will lose, and be put out of their misery! What a bunch of underachievers. If Rivers was a leader Chargers would have a Superbowl back with they had LT. Loser!

  17. playitfunky says: Dec 16, 2011 2:14 AM

    Chargers fans claiming the non sell outs are only because they lost this yr are full of it. Chargers have always had trouble selling out. The fans in SD just too laid back, too much to do, they don’t care that much about football.

    Snapdragon……

    There’s an elusive Rex Grossman reference around here somewhere….

    Hey Vegas691,

    The SnapDragon is not only smelly, it’s also played host to Big Ben, Tom Brady, and Antonio Cromartie used to spend a lot of time there on the weekends.

    The similarities with your wife’s Georgia O’Keefe Orchid keep popping up.

    rams are likely moving back to LA AFTER their lease is up in st louis..kroenke wants to sell them to aeg and kroenk is gonna buy the broncos from bowlen so he willl own 3 denver franchises…it was reported a while back that is very probable.aeg requires to own a majority stake in a team moving to LA .the spanos family is not selling majority stake.they were offering a minority stake in the team but have sense taken the minority stake off the market.. also jim hill on cbs2 here in LA reported the raiders announced(before al passed away) they would be interested in moving back to LA with new stadium rather than share one with 49ers.. not surprised at that!

    Steeler fans prtbably bought the rest of those tickets….god knows these 2 sorry franchises our incapable of selling any tickets! These powser blue clowns better beat the ratbirds! At least do something meaningful in your miserable existence!

    “The Chargers have announced that Sunday night’s game will indeed be televised locally, on KNSD in San Diego and KNBC in Los Angeles and Orange County.”

    The question now becomes, will anybody watch it?

  23. tomsd1 says: Dec 16, 2011 7:27 AM

    From what I have read/heard – a team moving to LA does NOT have to sell a majority share.

    Ergo the 1/3 or so the Chargers would sell to AEG would nicely cover the Estate Tax that will be due when patriarch Alex Spanos passes away. The son/current team overseer – Trust Baby Dean – and the other heirs will then be in a new stadium, with the value of the franchise going up by 50% to say $1.5 Billion.

    They would also get a lot more cash flow than they would get here in San Diego – PLUS – they don’t have to invest the $300 million they get for selling part of the club – as they would have to do here in San Diego for a new stadium.

    Case Closed – Bolts B Gone!!!!!!

    Actually, us here in Baltimore have sold out every game in our existence over the past 16 years.

    I understand that as a Steeler fan, it gives you a hard-on to think you are better than everyone else. However, in reality, it makes you look like an imbecile.
