Maybe it’s because the season is lost or the fans can’t stand the head coach. Maybe it’s because the team is threatening to move to another city or maybe it’s because the the fans hate the team’s owner. Or maybe it’s a combination of all of that.

Whatever the case may be, the fanbase of the San Diego Chargers has failed to make FanSided’s annual list of the Fandom 250.

Now as you look through that list, keep in mind that it’s not only ranking the world of sports. This thing contains everything. Television shows, individual celebrities, video games. Anything and everything that has a fan base is listed on this thing, so don’t feel too bad.

However, is there any way that the fans of the Chargers could make this list sometime down the road, maybe even next year? With so many questions surrounding the franchise, that’s hard to say. But I’ve seen a community of fans really sticking with and believing in their team this season.

But that brings us to a good question: Should the Chargers become the Los Angeles Chargers, would you even be a fan anymore?

To rub a little salt in the wound, 16 NFL teams—including all three others from the AFC West division—are on this list. The Chargers fans are just as passionate as them, right? The Raiders are looking at moving to another city as well, but they come in at No. 53 on the list. How is that possible?

The Chargers need something to rejuvenate them, and I’m not suggesting a move to Los Angeles. Perhaps a new coach and a new direction will inspire fans and they’ll be more positive vibes surrounding the Chargers than the gloom and doom that this season is starting to bring… and will continue to bring until the necessary changes are made.

That said, we here at Bolt Beat thoroughly appreciate the support that we get from Chargers fans and regardless of what that list says, you guys are a top 250 fan base!
