    You would be amazed at what kind of playoff ticket you can get for $100.

    Even with last year's success the Chargers are still heavily reliant on the visting fans to fill up their stadium and since there was only a week's notice for the Titans the supply of tickets is huge.

    Its supposed to be a rainy weekend but still...

    Yeah right - that must be why they blocked all east coast IPs from buying tickets to last year's matchup with the Pats. This is just karma for what they did to us Pats fans last year. I hope they don't sell out and get blacked out in SD.

    Do Playoff games get blacked out for home team?

    Yeah but do know how many California Pats fans there are? There were PLENTY of us there at that game despite that restriction.

    The Chargers ability to sell out is all based on the opponent's fan base.

    This afternoon they were given 24 hours to sell out and lift the blackout.

    From the sounds of it, it's still pretty iffy unless a corporation comes in to buy the remaining tix.

    Yes. I believe the last playoff game to be blacked out was in Miami around 1999 or 2000 when the Dolphins hosted the Colts.

    There are 500 tickets left to be sold before 1pm PST Friday. If they don't sell, I'm sure the local CBS affiliate already has a deal in place to pick them up in order to show the game.

    Regards,

    A few months ago if you will recall, 1.5 Million people were evacuated and several thousand people lost their homes along with everything else.

    Yeah, pretty friggin hilarious we're about 500 tickets short of a sell-out. You are a complete moron, grow up.

    Perhaps Karma will come knocking on your door for posting such a ridiculous thread.

    I have all the sympathy in the world for those people. However, my brother lives in Orange County with a lot of "Charger fans", these people are not hurting for money. Not even a little bit. It's just not on their list of priorities.

    What does one thing have to do with another? I'm not trying to be funny or joking. New Orleans filled all their seats after one of the worst natural disasters this country has seen.

    Wow, that's a pathetic use of the victim card. It's also disrespectful to Detroit Tigers fans who lost their closer for their year because of the fires.

    Wikipedia tells me that SD is the eighth largest US city with 1.25 million people, and that the SD-Carlsbad-San Marcos metro area is the 17th largest in the US with 2.9 million people. And you want to tell me that several thousand (your number) misplaced people is the issue?

    That's terrible and all, but at this point it's not relevant to the Chargers not selling out.

    Hey the Saints have sold out the last two years and they lost a whole freaken city and the team stinks.

    Not selling out a playoff game is pathetic.

    they just don't want to be there when the camera pans the stands and they all get caught on tv w/that slackjawed glassy eyed 'not again!' looks on their faces.
    if you're on your own couch you don't need to don the paper bag.

    Just to drive this point home since I live in New Orleans. The entire metro area was evacuated, many still dont have their homes back, many residents never returned, the Saints sold out their last 2 seasons and easily sold out their playoff game, I know, I was there. your fan base just sucks, don't hide behind a tragedy.

    You don't like the thread, don't post in it. I just hope you beat Indy and Tenn so LT can come crying to Foxboro. Loser

    What a stupid thread. Didn't the Chargers sell out every home game this season?

    As much as I hate the Chargers, asked my buddy who is die hard SD fan what the deal was. He is a season ticket holder, and apparently the Chargers did a crappy job with their marketing of playoff tickets.

    Season ticket holders needed to reserve their seats by 12/3, but he never got an email or letter or anything, so didn't look into it.

    On top of that, since games sell out general public likely assumed no seats were available so didn't try.

    I'd imagine it will sell out shortly.
