How can they send an e-mail to someone saying they lowered prices when that person had their price raised. Also that I as a season ticket holder had never received the benefits listed out in the e-mail and have received ZERO RESPONSE so far. I will keep you all updated if I hear something back.
I also sent a similar email the day I received the email from the Chargers, and also no response yet. Mine may have been a little bit more scathing than yours though
I also suggested to them that they save their season ticket "perks" and stop giving out these so called extras (pin program, stadium tour,etc.) and use the money saved from that to not increase our prices like they did.

They should just shut up and accept it. I mean really, how DARE they?

Your sarcasm is at an all time low, Al. Are you still feeling the effects of the chill pills?

The facts are, if you want the best seats available in the stadium you're going to pay a little more. If you're okay with seats a little further away, you'll be able to buy them cheaper.

Pretty simple, if you ask me. You get what you pay for. Isn't that how it is everywhere?

Is an 18% increase paying just a little more?? "Get what u pay for"-....lousy product in a lousy stadium but increase prices by a lot in order to help the blackout problems... Riiiiiight

Per the article, the chargers were the 7th most expensive of the 32 teams and this was before the price increase

This is horrible timing IMO. We live in "America's Finest City." One of America's most expensive cities / regions one can live in. Everything is expensive. Gas. Rent / Mortgages. Now Chargers "diehard" fanbase has to foot the bill for it's own franchises shortcomings... THEY made the decision to allow the disease that was A.J. Smith to run our top ticket selling players out of town and fix things that weren't broken,........repeatedly. Now after excersizing patience and getting over disappointment after disappointment we get slapped in the face with GANGSTER increases in ticket prices????? Its like raising taxes to pay for other peoples entitlements. Eventually. The system will fail. The reality of this is going to be less overall season ticket holders, less overall ticket sales, more opposing fan bases fans in our stands, and another season of blackouts.....

Its sad if you ask me. You can go out one weekend trying to take your family to a Charger game......loose your TAIL for about $500<---conservatively, in a matter of 4 to 5 hours... Tickets / Gas / PARKING / Food & Drinks / don't even try to buy a tshirt or a hat... Then come home and the following week you can't even watch them play because of a local blackout???????????? Dude???????? Give me a break!!!!!!!!! And then stress out that they might pack up and leave for the dump that is LOS ANGELES because WE can't get them a stadium built?????? You better kiss my butt dude!!!!!

I've still got a stash of chill pills. The good strawberry ones.

PM me for payment details.

Yeah right, you'll probably jack the price up 18% on the strawberry ones!
