Los Angeles Chargers Brand Discussion

Oh, i know the ground on which I tread.  However, flat out saying that a 5+ hour drive invalidates the ability to go to a game can also fall apart quickly.  So saying that 'people aren't going to do it regularly' isn't due to the drive time, it's due to getting shat on. Those are two entirely different things.

No, I don't expect NEARLY any San Diegans will attend games for the LA Chargers - but it isn't due to the drive, it's due to getting crapped on by the team.

Fixed that for you. The raiders are a very vocal minority, the Raiders fan presence here has never been very big outside of one part of city. The cowboys probably even have a larger fan base than the raiders do. 

 

Maybe. The radio ratings during the recent Rams v Raiders game however when both teams were being broadcast by their respective stations simultaneously suggest the Raiders have a bigger presence then you're giving them credit for seeing as the Raiders broadcast outdrew the Rams pretty handily.

I live about 5 minutes from New Era Field. Since its located right in the suburbs, there are so many secret alternate routes that you can clear traffic within minutes or avoid it altogether... usually the highlight of Bills game attendance

Chargers first regular season game at stubhub drew 25,381 fans.

 

No they distributed 25,381 tickets. Almost 2000 tickets remained unsold by the team. And several thousand were also unsold on the resale markets like Stubhub, Ticketmaster and NFL Ticket Exchange.

 

There were probably closer to 20,000 actual human beings in the stands.

Spanos stuck with the Chargers brand in an effort to retain the San Diego fanbase, but probably hurt the Chargers immediate growth in the LA market without a rebrand.

 

Yet the whole move pissed off San Diego fans turning them off.

 

So Spanos isn't maximizing either the LA fans or the San Diego fans.

 

Typical mickey mouse maneuvers from the Chargers.

Of all the things we could discuss on this board, not making these the full-time uniforms has to be the biggest sin of all:

Get some matching blue pants for road with yellow/blue/yellow striped socks.  I get the love for the throwback, I own one.  But I actually like these better, I'm sure that's an unpopular opinion.

I like these better too. Throwback doesn't look as sleek and looks dated imo.

Actually, I'm more partial to these to be honest.

You can find a bunch of people fawning over virtually every Chargers uniform in history except the current primaries.

Too standard looking imo. The powder blue is much more unique.

So a report came out that NFL is very concerned about the Chargers and there has been some light buzz about possibly pushing them back to San Diego if they continue to struggle

 

Now have a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy halt the Las Vegas stadium construction for "unspecified reasons" and the NFL can be good again (other than the manifold ills inherent to professional football).

Chargers just need to make the switch NOW instead of waiting for Inglewood, just wearing these would build-up goodwill:
