No blackout for Chargers home finale against Chiefs

The Chargers said before Christmas they needed to sell another 2,500 tickets to make sure their home finale was broadcast locally.

It must have scared up enough customers, as the team announced today they had sold enough to lift the blackout, via Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego.

Between last-minute purchases and eating them at 34 cents on the dollar, the Chargers have guaranteed their fans will be able to see the Chiefs game, which may or may not have playoff implications.

The Chargers will be eliminated if either Miami or Baltimore wins in the early slot, so they’ll know by kickoff whether it matters. But either way the locals will get to watch.

  1. It is an embarrassment that every time the Chargers are at home, there there are stories all over about whether or not the game will be blacked out. And this is a team that is playing for a playoff spot. As I have said in other posts, it is obvious that San Diego does not care about football. Everybody that lives there always talks about there being so many other things to do and talking about how the rest of the country is jealous of their weather. Maybe that is true to an extent but since there is so much apathy regarding the Chargers, San Diego won’t care when they move to L.A. I am sure there will be more than enough people in L.A. that won’t mind spending three hours watching football eight times a year. It’s sad that it is such a difficult commitment for the people of San Diego. Their loss will be Los Angeles’ gain.

  2. Hey Joe hang on to your 30 years ago Rings, it’s amazing how much smack you talk for someones team who hasn’t been relavant in over a decade.
