The San Antonio Chargers?


We already know the bandwagon community that is San Diego is all but resigned to the fact that they won’t have an excuse to wear powder blue jerseys on Sunday much longer. The Chargers are seemingly always rumored to be the next NFL franchise on the move. However most of the talk centers around a return to their natural home of Los Angeles.

Now comes a real curve ball as Texas Governor Rick Perry is making a plea to get the always disappointing Bolts to bolt for…San Antonio?

Perry cites his relationship Dean Spanos as his ace in the hole for getting the Chargers out of SD and into SA. Obviously there isn’t much to this and is really nothing more than an excuse for me to engage in my second favorite hobby outside of Greg Knapp bashing. Any reason to take a run at the fair weather fans in San Diego is welcomed.

That said it would be odd see the Raiders playing their rivals in Texas every year. Of course the Chargers have never really been rivals in the true sense. Even with their near decade of dominance over Oakland the Chargers are still 10 games below .500 in the all-time series standings. If nothing else this ridiculous move would at least allow the Silver and Black to also own some real estate in Texas.

    Bandwagon fans? Pot and kettle. The Raiders, with all their “hardcore” fans, were blacked out most of the season and have to cut the number of seats in the stadium to the smallest in the league to try and avoid the same fate next season.

    As for Rick Perry…he’s a moron. Even if the Chargers do move, it’ll be to L.A., not San Antonio.

    Raiders have been blacked out only one time in the past two seasons, the 2012 Cleveland game. The reason so many games have been blacked out since the return to Oakland is the fact that the coliseum is an absolute sh*thole.

    Lived in San Diego 20 years, never was a Charger fan… but I’ve witnessed first hand over that period how big of a bandwagon city it is.
