Saying Some Nice Things About The AFC West Rivals

Here is my attempt to say some good things about the San Diego Chargers’ division rivals. This will not be easy.

I already offended everyone in Raider nation last week by sharing information that their own news people said about their quarterbacks. Their own news people said it! I just shared it to Charger Town and they got all pissy about it. Apparently I should die of AIDS. Wait a minute that is a tweet from someone else to someone else. Some of the things that fans do is just downright silly.

Anyway, back to my attempt to say some good things about the opposition. I almost got sidetracked already!

Here we go.


  • The Raiders live in an awesome state. California is amazing! The beaches, the women, the weather. Not particularly in Oakland, but more prevalent in Southern California.
  • The colors black and silver really can go with anything. Raiders fans have that going for them.
  • Darth Vader is at all there games. Celebrity status. I think King Kong goes to those games too.
  • They spend tons of hours to put that makeup on and off. I wouldn’t care to do that at all.


  • After they lose, they can enjoy some really good BBQ. I am sure Andy Reid agrees with this statement.


  • After they lose, they can smoke weed.

I tried my best. Did I miss anything?

    The Broncos have a good home field advantage. Even though its because the visiting teams get half of the oxygen they are used to. And of course that’s the only reason we ever lose there ha

    • Ernie Padaon

      true story!

  • Dion Chin

    Awesome post EP.

  • Tom Spalsbury

    You did great. I commend you”

    • Ernie Padaon

      that was terribly difficult

  • RussinSactown

    Kansas City has to have the freshest Anheiser Busch beer anywhere because the home office is there. And they have some cool blues joints there.

    Oakland is close to San Francisco which is a pretty nice place to visit. They also have some great distilleries and vineyards close by (Because you know Road warrior and Darth Raider are probably accountants or something.

    Denver was where they supposedly based Mork and Mindy. Great show.

    • Ernie Padaon

      how did i forget such things!

    • Nick in PB

      Russ, as a former St. Louisian, I have to point out that St. Louis is the headquarters for Anheiser Busch. Also some great Blues joints (home to Chuck Berry). It’s the other side of the state, so you are close! Your other references were spot on! In either event, I would say that San Diego is supremo!

      • RussinSactown

        Good points, Nick! I wrote that with no coffee

        • Nick in PB

          From one Charger fan to another… it’s all good!

  • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

    Sorry, can’t do it…
    I can’t stand 99% of Raiders fans….
    I’m surrounded by Broncos fans here in Northern Utah, and they predominantly have Broncos games on the local networks….
    Don’t know too many Chiefs fans, but being divisional rivals of the team I root for…forget about it…

    • Gunnar Martin

      I know right?!? I live in UT too and its just Donkeys, Donkeys, Donkeys. Most of their fans I know don’t even know who their QB is! Now that’s sayin something…

      • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

        I’m in Syracuse UT, what about you?

        • Gunnar Martin


          • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

            That’s cool! I work @ Hill…we should catch a game this season & meet…

  • ChargerGirl Cindi

    I read a few of the comments over in Faderland. Those folks are not nice. Maybe it is because the word classy has class in it and they have never been in one?

    • ChargerGirl Cindi

      ps. We can eat good bbq here and also do what Denver can do legally as well.

      Class, also has ASS in it so they are half way there!

      • Alter Ego

        That was very good Tubbs45

    Oakland – ‘It’s a great place to leave”
    KC – “There ain’t any earthquakes here”
    Denver – “We brew more beer than any city in America… Oh, and we were stoned when we brewed it!”

  • Alter Ego

    The Illuminati live at Denver’s airport – not San Diego

  • Peter Thompson

    Denver- They don’t have to change their hats when they attend Boise State games.. a team I actually like.

    Oakland- The name “Oakland Raiders” has good cadence to it, and is easily changed to our favorite names, like “Chokeland” and “Faders”.

    Kansas City- They have the same color seats at Arrowhead as their team jersey.So, when we are kicking the crap out of them in their own house, the team doesn’t notice that everybody already went home.

    • Mike DeWitt

      Kansas City comment made me LOL, very well done

      • Peter Thompson

        Thanks Mike. I thought it was pretty snazzy too. Glad someone else could appreciate it.. Hahaha.

  • joerockt

    It takes a big man to recognize the good side of their enemies. Nice job.

  • Autumn Wind Williams

    You really should write about how the chargers are like a bunch of bachelorettes. Angry girls with no ring on they finger.

    • Ernie Padaon

      at least they would be the hot ones
