Blackout Watch! Chargers and Seahawks

I couldn’t help but notice nobody was freaking out about the prospect that Thursdays San Diego Chargers preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks might be blacked out.  So, here I am to freak you out. says that they have until 7 p.m. PT Tuesday to sell approximately 1,800 general tickets.  Get yours or you will be missing it!

    Hey if I live in LA, would the game be blocked out on NFL Network

    • ChargerGirl Cindi

      The website just says “local” will be blacked out.

      • Leonardo Velazquez

        Definitely will be blacked out. I’m an LA Charger fan. They count LA as “local” when they black out, but.conveniently they don’t count LA as local when deciding which games to show on Sunday. So if the Cowboys are playing at the same time as the Chargers, they’ll show that game instead.
        Sorry for my rant, short answer, LA is blacked out.

        • ChargerGirl Cindi

          :-( that’s a bummer. I’m thinking someone will buy them up.

      I’m pretty sure u will be able to see it

    • ghost_

      Yes it would/will be. LA is considered as part of the SD market. Same goes for NFL ticket

    • Ernie Padaon

      Blacked out

    • shayaaa

      Local is defined as 150 miles radius from stadium, iirc.

  • 619chargers4life

    I don’t think so

  • That’s lame

    Blacking out a preseason game is just lame…

  • Gunnar Martin

        Thx, but there’s just something about watching real Chargers football on my 76″ screen. Hopefully I get it up in time. Crossing fingers! I’ll definitely use those if I don’t :)

        • FitzWilly

          76″, Nice
          I bet you could count the Wrinkles on Norv’s neck lol

          • Gunnar Martin

            Gave me nightmares

        • ChargerGirl Cindi

          76′ screen? You are the man!

          • Gunnar Martin

            Not in feet, no, not in feet!!! lol That would give me a headache haha

          • ChargerGirl Cindi

            ha ha, that would be a little difficult to watch!

        • arnie

          if you have HDMI plug, you can.

  • Cgoodness13

    I’ll just watch it online….

  • arnie

    Look, i get the Chargers have to make money an all, but they are already charging full price for game that doesn’t count, to watch players that won’t make the squad. if you’re trying to get fans excited about this “New Regime” this is not a good way to start.

  • Lee

    I go to school way up north so me and my friends have always gotten tix to the first chargers preseason game cuz it’s the only one I’m here in SD for. Can’t wait it’s probably the biggest highlight of the summer for me lol


    I’ll watch it by game pass…here in Spain,is easier watch a chargers game here in Europe than in San Diego (unbelievable).

  • ECAVILLE/Ace of Spades

    I’m going. Excited about it too. Ill be in my favorite spot by half way through the first quarter.

    • ChargerGirl Cindi

      I’m taking my daughter. She is almost as excited as I am purely for the shopping. ha ha

  • JoseSD

    1800 is not too big of a number I remember last season there were one or two games where they needed to sell 8000 and at 38 cents on the dollar im sure the team will buy the few hundred that aren’t sold if it’s not a sell out

  • davacho

    NFL network is airing it with a 1 hr delay.

    Will be interesting to see what TT will do regarding blackout’s this year. Will they run special promotions, buy up the extra tickets, etc…

    I just think its BS that I buy Sunday Ticket and can’t watch every Charger game on it regardless of blackout.
