Wow this is really sad.

I prefer the format and interaction on here so much more than reddit. I fail to see the point of shutting down this forum.

For those looking for more of a forum style site, we may have to move over to powder blues forums. I'm on there already but rarely post because CMB is home.

This stinks.

Seriously.
I don't do TwitterChat, InstaFace or SnapBook.
They move from SD. Go with a silly Slogan of fight for LA. And now shut down the message board.

Almost seems like some self-sabotage.

Not one decision has attracted more fans, not one decision led to a Superbowl title.
And when there was 'a gleam' a dozen years ago they removed it to prove they own the team and will run it their way.

Disappointed but not surprised.
It's the culture.

It's been a pleasure chatting with you all. I'm not sure of venturing off into the other social media outlets. I felt at home here. Thanks to all the moderators for their efforts in maintaining this forum throughout the years. It's been fun.
I echo your sentiments and I guess am forced to look elsewhere, still a couple weeks till they shut it down, please keep posting and please include any other Charger msg boards.

Huge difference between 'following' on twitter/facebook etc than 'participating' in Charger talk like this msg board provides .... a voice for the avg fan, communicating with other Charger fans from all over (the world), I'll miss this site for sure.

Sad day indeed Charger fans on the CMB ..... still .... Go Chargers!

I'm afraid it's very bad news.



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!
Tom, can you find out if they would allow this forum site to be migrated over to another domain name? I'm sure there would be enough support on this forum to make that happen.

Joel will be along to post his thoughts on the decision, I'm sure.

Hopefully he will address this.

I know before the move, our annual server bill was about $18k per year. This may be part of the decision, but I think it's more geared towards the majority of people who use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram/SnapChat these days. Public message boards are becoming obsolete. Everyone these days seems more inclined to post a single thought, and go versus having indepth analysis and conversations.

This is my thought as well.....

Need to talk with our tech/media types, see how hard it would be for me to just start up my own version, if legal.....

If I did, would any be interested.....


Sad announcement, but there is still some time.....


Thx to all that ran the show, you all did a great job !

Spicy.
Good football knowledge.
reddit has its own culture.
Vast content outside of Chargers subreddit.
Sidenote: owner of reddit is married to Serena Williams.
