The Cleveland Browns are the latest team to opt out of the new blackout policy and the Chargers have already stated that they would not take part of the policy either. The only team that took “advantage” of the policy was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Chargers shouldn’t need help from the blackout policy since

we are marketing tickets to opposing teams and

we are opening up the Dallas Cowboys-San Diego Chargers joint practices to season ticket holders.

If we put out an exciting winning product on the field, then we really won’t need help to sell out tickets. If we struggle out the gates, then we could see some early blackouts again.
