We get the "ganes of the week" so about 2 to 3 times a year we get charger games not counting prime time games.
I think last year there was only 1, I'm not entirely sure tho cause I worked every Sunday after week 5

You also have to account for people like me. I have an account. Never use it. All my friends do, too. Never use them. All we use it for is to email old friends and renew contact.

Neither I, nor any of my friends, have ever "liked" something.

A little bit of proof that LA is still Raiders territory.

Source, including playoff maps.
It's odd that southern Oregon is Raider territory. My sister lives in Oregon, and neither of us has ever seen a Raider fan there. It's more either Seahawks or 49ers and, of course, my sister, the lone Charger fan. The Cowboys seem to fill any void west of the Mississippi. And the scattering of Packers fans. It makes me wonder how fans pick their team. Very interesting.

Yep. I figured it would be Chargers country all up through there..

An NFL team in Salt Lake or Omaha? No way. Portland's bigger than both of them and still not big enough for an NFL team. And Las Vegas will never get one due to it's sports gambling. That's your basic NFL Marketing 101 lesson. And before you mention Green Bay not being a big market, they joined the league when there were only a handful of teams and are publicly owned. Everything's changed since then, it's all about cities with bigger TV market$ nowadays. It's wishful thinking because you live in Utah, but you're not being realistic.

hahah, Tom I see quite a bit of cowboy gear here, but also Packers, Denver, Steelers.

The funny thing is when I go to the bar and watch the bolts play, nothing but Chief/Rams fans. Boy, you should see the looks I get in bolt gear. I think I stop motion for the moment, and you can hear a pin drop. Then lightning stikes!

Proves my argument that LA is still Raider territory. All my friends from LA are Raider fans.

Speaking of Vegas, I do see Bolts gear almost every time I am there. I actually see more Bolts gear in Vegas than I do in LA.

Nice.

When I have Chargers gear on, I usually get some Donkey dork who'll say "Chargers? It's all about the Broncos".

Then I'll usually say something about how it's too bad Denver doesn't have an NFL team.

Gotta remember, this is based solely on Facebook "likes".

Some of those rural counties might only have 1 person who voted, and the entire county becomes that teams territory.

I live in Oregon. What you're saying is true.
