    So let me get this straight… If I live in Diego and its blacked out Im still not able to watch it even though it’s MNF??

    • 619chargers4life

      Exactly , unless u have the Internet and know a site to stream it from . Which there is a ton of them

    • Peter Thompson

      Lol… this game won’t be blacked out, don’t worry. Can you imagine?

      • 1961 Fan

        I think three of the remaining seven (7) games will be Blacked Out. Same as last season.

        • Peter Thompson

          One can only do their best, can’t they?

          • 1961 Fan

            After tomorrow night (Texans) we have seven more home games. Where are you East Coast, I see a different time stamp (2-3 hours ahead) than us here on the West Coast in PST?

            I just meant why did you use the word “seven”, and then put the (7) after it too? Kinda weird. I just know MNF ain’t getting blacked out. That’s all I was saying.

            It is a hold over from being in business and making sure the reader understands in numbers and in words.

          • Peter Thompson

            Got it. That makes sense.

      That would have been true if it was not for the network (ESPN) buying up the extra tickets so they can show the game here in S. D. That is the NFL rule so people WILL buy tickets and attend. I am surprised as a young squirt you haven’t figured out how to get the game on one of the many internet websites that show blacked out (all) games.

      • Peter Thompson

        That’s illegal.

  • Alex Pitrofsky

    Unfortunately, I think that the Chargers have the worst fan base in the NFL. I love San Diego but I hate some of the ways things are down here. Get off you freken surf boards and bongs and get your ass to The Q

    • Thomas87

      so true.. It really bugs me how these games don’t sell out weeks in advance. It makes a difference when it’s sold out and LOUD

    • Gunnar Martin

      I was just thinking exactly that a few minutes ago. There’s a chance of a blackout for Monday Night Football in prime time? Really?!!

      Come on San Diego.
