Default Update - Forum Tentative EOS Is 2/28/2019

I just received the following email from Joel Price, the Digital Marketing Director of the Los Angeles Chargers.

I'm afraid it's very bad news.

Quote:
After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards at the end of this month. Since we opened our boards so many years ago, the digital landscape has dramatically evolved over the years. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in the conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years.

Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, September 28th. We recognize that this change may upset avid and faithful members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets.

If you are not already engaging us on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities.

Weíd like to thank all our fans, members and our moderators who have brought the thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 15+ years.
I would like to thank the mods for their countless hours of volunteering their time to these boards, helping the community grow, and supporting the team for all these years.

It's been an extreme pleasure sharing this forum with you all, and I have enjoyed your thoughts, opinions and company. This has been a long road, well traveled by us all, and I appreciate all of your help making this the best fan message board in the NFL.



Go Chargers!

Wow - I fail to see how this will help the team. Couple this with the move from SD and you just doubled down on alienating the fans.

Agreed.

14 years, Roo.

It's been one heckuva ride. Thanks for everything you did to get this place off the ground.

Kind of feels like I got the news that one of my children is dying. It's probably time for me to quit watching football anyway.

Purging the oldtimers.
Been nice! Best Wishes!

So true. I am not the biggest poster but read through a lot of the threads on here. Is there any other way to give this decision a big thumbs down?

Just another in a long line of fan friendly moves made by this ownership. If Spanos was smart he would sell this team and save himself the continued embarrassment of his failed LA move. And does he really want to move this team and fan base into a 70,000 seat stadium that will be 2/3 empty.

I don't think Spanos can sell for 5 years after the move, per agreement with league. Easily could be wrong, but pretty sure I read that when the move was being contemplated.
