No blackout for Chargers-Broncos game this week

While the FCC is considering action to end the blackout rule, the NFL is getting close to making it a moot point.

There still hasn’t been a blackout this season, and the Chargers won’t have one this week.

According to U-T San Diego, enough tickets were sold to guarantee Sunday’s game against the Broncos will be shown on local television.

While the Chargers got a little assistance from ESPN and sponsors (i.e. tickets sold at 34 cents on the dollar) to get their Monday Night Football appearance against the Colts on the local airwaves, they actually sold out the other two times they’ve played at home, and the arrival of Peyton Manning ought to be an easy sell.

Last season, half their home schedule was blacked out.

    Remember, this is a Chargers team that caught the Colts napping and looking ahead to the following week with the Broncos – hope the Broncs aren’t doing the same to the Chargers looking ahead to the critical game against the Chiefs

    Chargers actually look good this year (at times) don’t count them out by any stretch

    Oh man, I’m just a Charger fan… Last week’s loss to the Skins epitomizes Charger fandom. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. It’s just our place in the universe. I’ve come to accept that hahahahaha

    This is a Yawn fest, Broncos by 3 Tds, nothing to see here!

    They wouldn’t even have to catch them napping. It’s not impossible that the chargers could beat the broncos at home.

    Let me see if I can get this straight. The Chargers need help avoiding a blackout yet the NFL wants to put another team in southern California?#FAIL

    Los Angeles Chargers. It’s time for them to return to their rightful home.

    The blackout rule is ridiculous. I don’t believe it ever compelled fans to attend games. There’s really two kinds of football fans, those who like attending games, and those who’d rather stay home.

    they should think about relocating their franchise. a lot of other states would appreciate the talent and game.

    Hopefully the lack of blackouts is a sign that the national economy is improving
