I guess I'm in a holding pattern until the season starts. Watching some pre-season, I'll either feel it, or I won't.

If that makes sense.
Yes, it does make perfect sense...

That is exactly it. Once the Chargers start playing... those same fans who are bashing the move will tune in and watch. You can't just erase all the years you were loyal to the Chargers. And once we win it all, OH FOR SURE they'll be saying they never left.

This I'm not so sure about. It's actually a primary reason I'm so confused. I don't know that I personally will enjoy an LA Charger championship the same way I would a SAN DIEGO Charger championship.

Of course, I have no frame of reference beyond the San Diego Sockers, so who knows?

I know I pull for the Lakers and don't get too pumped or down either way, because it's LA. Just not the same, but don't know why.

I agree 1000%. Even though I'm from SJ, I would much rather have the Championship belong to SD than LA. I don't like LA nor it's fan base and teams, but a Championship to the Chargers is better than a Championship to any other team. Especially the Patriots or Raiders.

This I can agree with.

The lesser of 32 evils, that's the conundrum. Can one really have fun pulling for a team because it's the team you dislike the least?

Meh.

Hopefully that's not the case, we'll see.

The irony that the city of San Diego once held a team which eventually won the SB but they won it somewhere else. LA of all places. That would be really something. Knowing San Diego leadership's luck it may just break the Charger curse.

Forget this I am trying to hear an ultimatum. Please someone give me a true definition of a real Chargers fan. I need clarity or closure. And maybe sig material.
