Blackout Watch: Chargers Get 24-Hour Extension

The San Diego Chargers will be shown to the rest of the nation, but there is still question if the game will be shown in San Diego. The Chargers received a 24-hour extension to sell out the game. The game still has over 3,500 tickets available and they all need to be sold in order to show the game on television to the rest of San Diego.

I don’t think that there will be a problem selling out the game though. It still sucks that we have to wait till the very last minute to buy those tickets. It’s Monday Night Football!

Is it Monday yet?

    NFL Home Opener it should be Automatic……right? SMH SD FANS…wish I lived 500 or so miles closer.

  • quintangelo

    I can’t believe we’re having this problem the first game of the year. It’s MNF ppl! Unfortunately, I have to works nights so it’s not possible. Damn SD… Stay classy

  • Alex Pitrofsky

    This is unbelievable!!! How is this game not sold out. Come on Charger fans, the team doesn’t need to be 13-3 for you to attend. This shit pisses me off

  • Alex Pitrofsky

    This makes me more angry than seeing more 49er fans than Charger fans at the preseason game. This is fucking terrible, terrible!!!!!!!!!!!

    Smaller stadium is typical of a lot of other teams. Smaller stadium should be built in San Diego to keep the Chargers here. Steadily working on it wil make it happen. City should distribute extra tourist taxes to help pay for it. Hosting the Superbowl will help pay it off. But really I don’t know jack didily. Internet streaming makes my dreams come true. Let the Whitehurst Hot Monday Night Football event commence. No city has it better than my home town San Diego. All haters are welcome to come visit and spend their hard earned money to lift my teams black outs. Its not cheap to live here and raise children but I wouldn’t change my life for the world. BOLT UP OR SHUT UP!

    This is what happens when you get three+ years of poor play; a raise in ticket prices and overall fan apathy. Dean Spanos has shot the Bolts in the foot on more than one occasion by not instilling a good GM and or coach and instead fired or “let go” those that did deliver winning teams. Spanos has made so many crappy decisions over the past 29 seasons it may take more than a NEW GM and Head Coach to turn the fans back onto the team. It is going to take winning and getting back to at least the Division Championship. It won’t happen this year and we may see 3 to 4 blackouts the same as last year when we had three and the Chiefs game was going to be blacked out but someone bought up the extra tickets because it was Military Appreciation Day. It cost so much to attend the games that Joe “Lunch Bucket” cannot afford to attend.

    We had less to sell at the pre-season game. This is weird.

  • Aaron Johnson

    There was a report that ESPN is partnering with Local businesses to sell or buy up tickets. If the game is blacked out ESPN loses most of the MNF market in CA. Im optimistic.

    That said, I hate the blackout rule. San Diego has some of the highest ticket prices and those that cant afford to go to every game (myself included) are the one’s being punished. I used to have season tickets but its a high cost in a volatile economy. NFL should get rid of that rule or the Chargers should re-examine their pricing structure.

    • Stefanie Smith

      I was looking at tickets today. $129 each from That is a lot if you have to get 4. And same here on season tickets. I had them some years ago when they were pretty reasonable. Not now. It costs a bundle to get the tickets, parking, food, etc. It costs a fortune for a family to go.

  • Stefanie Smith

    Hey, this will seem like a weird question, but do any of you think it makes the Charger players nervous when they find out about this black out deal? Do you think it makes them stressed or feel bad? I know they are professionals and all. Just wondering.

  • Gomie Reyes

    It is very expensive to go to a game. My family of 6 are going because my wife got them through her job at payroll deductions. I think the chargers pr should look into other sd buissness to do that and I guaranty the house would sell out CHARGERS forever
