Boy are the Chargers dumb

 

They were in a tough spot.  Either commit to SD, and play in a dump... or move right then and there and eventually get to make more money.

 

Til 2020 though... oof.  Leasing a soccer stadium?  27000 Seats?  Yikes.  Only prayer that they have right now is that they're very likely to be much better than the rams.  Gives them a shot to poach some fans. 

 

Also - its a 2 hour drive from SD, so i think as much as those fans are POed, a lot will still go to the games.  

 

When i lived in rochester i still went to games, and i know season ticket holders who live there too.

I'm not surprised. I was in Inglewood last year, and it looked like they had barely broke ground yet.

 

They are also going to have to make that area a lot more attractive.

@BenVolin

LAT story notes if it were a 1-team stadium, it might've been ready for 2019. Chargers move really messing things up

Yeah it has been a year and all they have done is move dirt and now started driving a few pilings. Something must be slowing them.

If they think like most Bills fans who loudly refused to support Bills if they moved to Toronto....they will not get too many roadtrippers.

 

I get the Rochester talk in ref to distance, however, Rochester comparison is apples to oranges. There was never a team in Rochester that then moved and forced fans to consider supporting them in another city with different name 2 hrs away.

Yes we had rain but not enough to delay this project one full year. Rivers will never play in this stadium and to now have to play in a 27k soccer stadium will kill the Charger organization.

Maybe they should call the Rose Bowl

City of Pasadena would never approve it. Only the Bruins can play there.

Rochester to Buffalo is always a two hour drive. San Diego to L.A. could be three to four hours much of the time. One or two fender benders on the 5, 10, 15, 105, 110, 405, 605, 805, etc. with 10,000,000 people in the region always slows that drive down. I have tickets for the Bills vs. Chargers game and I rented a hotel for Sat. night because of the traffic. As of now, 2:48pm Pac Time it's 3:05 one way and 2:53 back. And rush hour hasn't totally kicked in. Granted games are on Sunday, so who knows! But it's not Roch to Buff.

Why?

 

Aside from the Rose Bowl Game & UCLA football, is the Rose Bowl used for other events?

 

Is the city of Pasadena too civilized for NFL fans?

short term pain for long term gain. That's what the Chargers are banking on.. and it might just work out for them.

It's kinda funny that an NFL stadium will be a year late.....because it rained! Could that happen anywhere but LA?

I flew over this last week, definitely looked like a dirt hole with some pilings - I was going to snap a pic, but I kinda realized what I was flying over a little too late!

 

Where does one get tickets for the Bills game this year? When I click on single game tickets it takes me to the page to sign up for season tickets in LA (thanks, I'm good)...

 

 

(edit)

 

Guess this line explains it:

 

"It is not anticipated there will be any single game inventory available for the 2017 season, however, the best opportunity to secure tickets for future seasons will be to join the Chargers Wait List by clicking here."

You'll have to try all the other websites where people are selling their tickets.
