  1. These were Reebok and were stitched tackle twill bolts. During this era, the offensive line had a different bolt pattern on the shoulders for some reason. They aren't backwards.
  2. San Diego Fleet Phoenix Firebirds
  3. Can everyone just stop telling us San Diego people how we should feel?
  4. Correct, they are not covered for the Chargers. They were discounted for a long time until the early 2000s if I remember correctly. We have season tix in field level around the 5 yard line. In the corners is OK for that half of the field, but anything on the other end is extremely obstructed. Dean likes to rip us off...
  5. Those seats are extremely obstructed view because of how low they are. The first row is only about 1 foot off the grass. All you can see from those seats is the bench. You really can't see over anything until you get to rows 6-8. It's the product of an old, multipurpose stadium.
  6. why does color rush have to be monochrome? For example why can't the Chargers wear the royal blue jersey and pair it with yellow pants?
  7. This makes sense as well. However, it's just different for that city. I heard the Rams honored Orlando Pace and the crowd was indifferent because he never played in LA. That history of the franchise would be there but it just doesn't mean as much in another city. I just prefer a scenario like the Browns even if we aren't getting another team.
  8. Sure if that's your only criteria, but they played only the inaugural season there in a brand new "renegade" league. From the outside looking it it makes sense because they did exist. But those of us that grew up in Jack Murphy/Qualcomm think differently, the whole "they started in LA" argument makes no sense to us, it's just a footnote in our history. They came to San Diego for a reason. My dad has been going to games since Balboa Stadium in 1961. I don't want our memories and history going to LA. It's going to kill me to see them on TV as the LA Chargers. I can't imagine LT being enshrined in Canton during the summer and then being honored by the team in a city he never played in or for. I'd rather they just start fresh with something new. I told directv yesterday to not auto-renew my Sunday Ticket package for 2017 for this reason. And my dad won't be renewing our season tickets to go to LA.
  9. Your last 2 sentences here are infuriating. And no, I can't just imagine that they stayed in LA in 1961. Your arguments are ridiculous. While still SoCal, San Diego and LA are 2 completely different things. As a SD native, I don't and never will associate myself with LA because it's close and regional.
  10. As I said in a previous post, I prefer they cease to exist before being the LA Chargers. I prefer a clean break.
  11. Die hard Charger fan here, from San Diego and I currently live in AZ but still spend a lot of time in San Diego. I go to 2-3 games per year in my family's season tickets that we've had for over 20 years. If they move to LA, I'm done with them. There's no season ticket renewals, my family isn't going up to LA. I have a closet full of stuff I won't know what to do with. It will make it easier for me to not see those lightning bolts at all anymore. I need a clean break so I can start over as a fan of something else even though it will never be the same. I'd rather they cease to exist and become something totally new like an expansion team. We can hope another team comes in and becomes the San Diego Chargers, but I don't see it ever happening. I'd rather have the San Diego Chargers or no Chargers at all than have to see the LA Chargers on my TV. And I hope Rivers and Gates retire if they leave.
  12. I was wondering if you had the truetype font for the current Chargers word mark?  Thanks

  13. my biased opinion. Chargers #1 and the Jags #32. I don't care to rank in between. There are so many that are all really good in my opinion. One thing to remember even though there's a lot of love for it on here...the Raiders have a dude wearing a helmet on their helmet. It makes me think of Beavis and Butthead, when Butthead wanted a tattoo of a butt on his butt. Yes, I'm a Raider hater.
  14. I'm curious if they could do some type of wrap or skin on the shell of the helmet like they do advertising on cars. Not sure if it would mess with the integrity of the helmet or would be durable enough to hold up during the game, but that would be something worth exploring for the league. If they could make something work, then it saves them money for having multiple sets of helmets and covers them for this as a safely issue.
