I can safely say that I am more of a Charger fan than you are.

First game : December 26, 1965...fandom began.

Go ahead and look up what happened on that day.

My loyalty has never, ever wavered.

Props to charger1 sj and all Diehards.
I respect you and your loyalty Woodeye, but I too have an issue with people not from SD telling natives to "stop crying" and "get over it". that. The way this thing was handled is disgusting. I don't blame the organization for leaving, but it's still a very deep wound that isn't healed. May never will. The city politicians are a joke. Local govt is a joke. They failed the fans and the chargers. We deserved better. I was angry, still am. But I'm a charger fan. It's not a choice. I was born into this. I can't turn it off. I can't believe I'm saying this but, I hope SD and LA can somehow come come together on this one thing. Just this one thing though because hey, I'm from SD....of course I hate LA. 😜

What is so funny about this is that folks in LA don't harbor the same resentment for SD as San Diegans do for their neighbor to the north.

It is what we all have to deal with.
Valuable message here.
And I say this with great empathy and respect.

Either let it go and support the team.
OR
Let it go, as best you can, and jettison the whole thing.

These are really the only two options.
Do not waste yourselves on any other options.

If the Chargers do well in Los Angeles, and they probably will,
what will be your mindset ?

Either you can rejoice in hanging in there like no football fans short of the Cleveland Browns.
OR
If the Chargers crash and burn, you will end up with a "victory" that is very, very shallow.

The Georgia Dome opened September 6, 1992.

Less than 25 years old and scheduled for demolition sometime in 2017.

Yep- it is tough thing to swallow from a San Diego perspective. I pretty much grew up with the Chargers so I can't really root for another team unless San Diego were to get another team. Even then I would probably still follow the Chargers.

Are there still people on the fence!?!?
You have until week 1 people... chop chop.
After that, please don't identify yourself as a Charger fan.
Or at least specify with, "bandwagon, softcore, only when we win, Charger fan"

I'll figure out an acronym later.

I see he lowered the goal from 15k to 10k, and he is almost to 10k. Good luck! I bet Spanos already baught the billboards.

Really? Wikipedia says otherwise.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia_Dome

92-2017 is 25 years.

Update for everyone, the dude reduced his goal from 15k to 10k. He still hasn't achieved the 10k. His quest for the billboards has been at a halt. Anyone got $800 laying around to donate to a billboard?
