And, I could not care less what anyone thinks. If I've earned nothing else (and this goes for all the truly LOYAL fans), I've earned the right to rant and rave for this off-season. If I decide I'm done, fine, I won't troll this season, but I really don't need permission to be ticked off for a while.
Well the magnifying glass is on you because you are a mod.

I feel you're pain Pac. If you look at the clip of fans interviewed, they are primarily young adults my guess in their midl twenties to early thirties. I can imagine these adults we're in elementary school when the Chargers advanced to their first Super Bowl during the 94-95 season.

As kiddies during this time, they know to their core being how San Diego (from North County-Mission Valley-El Cajon to South Bay) enthusiastically rallied to support this team. Fans celebrated with the Charger flag hanging out from their cars/ suvs/ mini vans, honking each other in support of a team and giving each other high fives in person to someone you didn't know by name. It's a memory you can't erase...it binds you indelibly to the community.

And it's not just this generation but other generations of fans before them 80's, 70's and 60's that have a love of the San Diego Chargers. They once loved or still love this team just as much as Drew Pearson expressed his love of the Cowboys during the draft (great moment of the draft).

And it's not just geography; it clearly runs much much deeper than that. Only a San Diegan or any passionate football fan who has had their NFL team taken away from them can truly understand. It is what is.

Three people on here contributing $20 won't make it reach its goal. Sorry you feel it makes a statement to trash the Chargers ("I've been waiting foe the schedule to be released so I can do what I planned") on the way to Stub hub for the first games.i hate Dean as much as anyone but this is dumb near StubHub. Do it in SD.

Bull.

If LA doesn't want me, talk to Freak.

I am not a fan of Spanos or the politicians of SD, but keep that crap away from game day. He is trying to crap all over everyone's gameday experience by posting these billboards and bringing in stupid signs that the butthurt SD media will cover every week.

He is trying to milk his 15 minutes of fame so much.

The Chargers are a business and they made a business decision. Stop comparing this to relationships or girlfriends that cheat... that's probably the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Their still our Chargers. If you post on a CMB then you are a fan. Quit crying about the move, pull your pants up, and wipe your noses. Time to start supporting our favorite team.

As far as this guy that is putting up billboards... lol... That is such a disgruntled chick move. Put your money towards greater causes. Stop lashing out because your feelings are still hurt and get some help.

That is all.

me 3.
all good points.
not directing this at one in particular

hate-motivated actions can get addicting and lead
some to crossing subjective lines of disrespect

im not going to tell others how to spend their money...
except I am
while were all joining charger fan-gangs (blind sheep 13 ese!)
there are literally thousands of better ways to spend $20
than on this attention addict's "cause"

im not going to tell people to get over anything...
except I am
for yourself and especially, for everyone else
no one can force you to get over it
we get it
you can cling on to this resentment, personalize it
internalize it, rally behind the hate or whatever.
i just hope the hate doesn't motivate people
to ruin fan experiences for other people

I dont like what ice cube said about "SD bringing our trash to LA"
but your not going to see me at ice cube concerts with hate signs antagonizing cube fans.

im not a big fan of church groups
but again, you wont find me at your local church with my
Bad Religion shirt on (you know which one)

just because you have the right doesn't make it right.

lol at anyone who wastes even a dollar on this. no matter where you stand, It's over. a billboard will have no effect on anything. I imagine most people would just laugh at it.
