Chargers on a 5 game win streak, take over sole possesion of the AFW west, and they cant even sell out their next game after that? Come on, pathetic fans. I would understand if they were 4-6 or 3-5, but they have a solid winning team and cant sell out? Even the St Louis rams bandwagon fans can sell out that stadium when their team is good.

Well, they could make fun of Bronco fans flooding out of the stadium in the 3rd quarter if they wanted. With the economy as bad as it is everywhere, I'm not surprised that there aren't more games not sold out, though maybe not for a first place team.

The Denver Broncos have the longest sell out streak of any team in the NFL besided the Washington Redskins.

Packers fans are chumps. They didn't sell out games when the packers stunk up the joint in the 70's and 80's...

I'll wager the Broncos home sell out streak against the stellers home sell out streak. I have a feeling that they probably didn't sell out every game in the 1980s but that is a complete guess on my part.

With the cost of living so high in California, let alone SD, people are just trying to hold on to their houses. I understand why there aren't Average Joe's swarming the stands but surely there are enough people that are "above the recession" to take up some space. I don't know. Maybe not. I think what it comes down to is priorities. If I can't afford to make my house payment your not going to see me at a game. As a fan, I can laugh and ridicule. As a guy who is feeling the hurt as well, I understand.

I understand this to a point, but if interest was there, the economy wouldn't be an excuse. Its not an excuse for all the other NFL stadiums that have been selling out. San Diego has long had problems with its fan base, which is probably why they will move at some point. Not to mention, getting in and out of that ugly ass stadium is a ****ing nightmare.

To support your case is money is such an issue and the economy is so poor then why is one of the places most effected by the recession, with the worst team in the league not having blackout problems...The Detroit Lions?

Actually the local Chargers television ratings have gone up 5 points this year compared to last. So the interest is there, but, uhoh, ****ing bandwagoners. Haha, it's tough to win against all the self-righteousness that Broncos fans manage to pull together.

With the economy as crappy as it is around Southern California, you just end up looking like an asshole waging your finger at a guy who decides to save his family a couple hundred dollars by watching the game at home.

You make great points, but sadly, with the blackout rules in the NFL, if they dont sell out, there will be no game on TV, so there will be no ratings at all.

I'm not denying the economy is part of the issue, but its not THE issue. I live in SoCal, I'm well aware of the issues that effect a bunch of people, but c'mon, we are talking about 8 games a year in a pretty populated area. The interest is not there, the interest has never been that high for the chargers. Southern California just isnt a great sports area.

ya, thats a shame because San Diego and So cal is such a nice part of the country. Hopefully the die hard chief fans will fly out there and buy up the rest of the tickets and pump up the economy and Chiefs win. As much as I dislike the chargers, I like the city of san diego and hope it can bounce out of the recession.

I was going to write this long post about this but it's just probably not worth the effort.

Basically, I have a nice paying job but with the state of the economy I can't justify spending the money it takes to go to a game right now when I should be using it towards bills and savings in case something happens to my job. I have friends who are big Charger fans who are either in the same boat or have already lost their job and can't go. Even in my small circle, there are about ten people I know who are being affected by it.

Maybe Charger fans are actually being smart about this (because football fans aren't the brightest group out there in general). The NFL has brought all of this on themselves. The constant raising of prices on tickets, merchandise, parking, food, beer, etc. And with excellent and much cheaper alternatives like NFL ticket and the Red Zone channel, you can still enjoy watching your team and tons of great NFL action for a fraction of the price. In today's world, it's all about getting the most out of your dollar and the NFL is unknowingly pushing fans to alternative ways to enjoy their Sundays.

Well, if you take a look at the demographics of football fans, generally speaking the upper class has little interest in the NFL.

Come on, you've been to football games. The crowd is made up of lower and middle class people. This is the NFL's primary audience.

I dont know. If you have been on the Omane in the last year or to, the some of fans at Invesco have been referred to "wine and cheesers". Stating that the upper class has been starting to take over the stadium. I didnt see much of that of the games I was at, I am just going by what I hear by the people that go to a lot of the games on the Omane.

That has been one of the main complaints why the stadium isnt as loud anymore and pple leave in the 3rd quarter. Some say we have lost the mile high thunder and loudness and the home field advantage due to our Upper class having a ton of interest in the NFL.

It's always the same horrible 2K seats that are left at the end and a lot of those are single seats so that rules out a huge number of people who are going with one or more people. I and a lot of other people refuse to sit in those obstructed view seats. If I'm going to drop a hundred bucks, I'm making sure I get a good seat. Of course this doesn't help ticket sales since I'll have to buy them from someone else or a ticket broker but I guess that's the way it works.

If you really want to know about the San Diego stadium situation, I'd suggest googling it.

The Chargers aren't selling to Roski. How many times does this have to be explained on here? Do people not pay attention to what's going on or do they just regurgitate stuff they hear on ESPN or talk radio?

I could really give a rat fvck about the San Diego stadium situation...I'm a Bronco Fan and don't need to run to other teams message boards to be an attention whore. You can dream all you want about keeping your blessed Chuggers in town, but until the town fully supports the team no matter what record they hold you are constantly going to be the status of rumors of a move to LA.

one "that doesn't mean all of our fans aren't die-hard" simplies that all of your fans are diehard fans, the other "doesn't mean that we don't have some die-hard fans" implies that you have some diehard fans.

Could you translate that gibberish into english.

You didn't capitalize the word "English" or use a question mark at the end of your sentence.

I assume only the residents of LaJolla can use the english language as intended. the rest speak gang lingo and identify friend and foe by their tattoos.

You didn't capitalize the word "Appalachia." Also there is a space between the words "La" and "Jolla." You didn't capitalize the word "English" again. The word "the" to begin the next sentence should have been capitalized, and there should have been a hyphen in between the words "gang" and "lingo."

I am a Bolt fan that lives in Europe and last year I had season tickets. Got to 5 games plus a playoff game. Didn't pick them up this year not because of the recesh but because the schedule was not conducive to long distance travel to get the games. Last year they had 3 home games in a row.

So there are few diehard Bolt fans out there but in general San Diego fans should be able to fill up the Murph every game.

But to be fair it is a pretty decent sized stadium with 70k capacity, seating about 5k more than Pittsburgh.

Everyone knows Denver has and always will fill Mile High. Props on your consistent ability to do so.

I think we have a 46 game streak of sellouts..our last blackout was in 2004.....There are usually 2000 or so undesireable seats left the week of the game that are mostly obstructed or single seating...Thanksgiving plus a less than exciting matchup....plus no opposing fans coming out to the game might have a little something to do with a blackout.

After seeing the Steeler fans taking over half of Invesco field on a prime-time game a few weeks ago...I'd watch who we call bandwagonners when obviously a significant portion of the Broncos season tix holders were more than willing to take a few extra dollars for selling their seats to an important game over supporting their first place team with a great home field advantage.

im just sayin, the broncos might not have the massive sell out streaks like green bay or maybe pittsburgh, but I garuntee when the broncos didnt sell out whenver that was, they had a losing record.

The Broncos sellout streak dates back to 1971 and is over 300 games in a row. The last time I heard anything about them being compared to other teams, the redskins had the longest sellout streak in the NFL and the Broncos were #2.

Boltjolt

The Denver Broncos have the longest sell out streak of any team in the NFL besided the Washington Redskins.

Packers fans are chumps. They didn't sell out games when the packers stunk up the joint in the 70's and 80's...

I'll wager the Broncos home sell out streak against the stellers home sell out streak. I have a feeling that they probably didn't sell out every game in the 1980s but that is a complete guess on my part.

Its going to be 74 degrees on Thanksgiving day in San Diego. Theres nothing else to do in Denver but to go to a ballgame. Besides, im sure it will be full enough if it dont sell out. I dont really worry about how many games are sold out. I only care that our GM does things like sign Jon Runyan like he did today since we lost our RT against you guys.

I feel better about that.

The recession is pretty bad. It isnt easy to spend money on game tickets right now. Some people dont feel good about that with the holidays coming up fast.

I prefer to watch at home with my friends. My experience, what few they were, at the Q wasn't exactly the most pleasant. I don't have to deal with beer being thrown at me or someone getting stabbed. The stadium is also pretty horrible. It's no wonder the Chargers want a new one. I'm pretty sure that's how a lot of the fans feel if you take the economy out of it.
