    Only been into the NFL for a few years - have tried to settle on various teams (Giants, Niners, Pats, Bears, Bucs etc) but always struggled to stick to a team . I rooted for the Chargers this past season from the start as I liked the fact they have never won a SB, not as popular as some other glory teams - and are in a part of the States that I'd love to visit most - Southern Cali. (I'm from London UK btw)

    So it appears I have finally settled on my team - I've really enjoyed the ride this season!

    Looking forward to contributing to the boards here :)

    Yep, welcome aboard. I'm also UK based (Darlington). Start saving your pennies because as DB says, the next Eurobolts trip to SD is hopefully going to be in 2015 although I'm hoping to get across there 2014 too.

    Thanks guys! I'm been listening to the Podcasts all season btw - they're great!

    My wife is still convinced I will change teams again before next Christmas - she's promised to buy me a Bolts jersey if I stick to a team for once! It was harder picking an NFL team than I thought as I don't have a geo link to any place - the Giants were always a team I liked as I like NY. I tried rooting for the Niners for a bit (even saw them at Wembley) - but their arrogance (and fan base to a degree) put me off! Also the fact that they're another bandwagon type team. Also, I have friends from So'cal (Orange county) and would prefer to go there for a hol than north!

    I hear San Diego is a wonderful place! The team has won me over that's for sure! I love their grit, team ethic and hopefully these youngsters will grow into a really cracking unit ! Go chargers

    Welcome to the boards, man! London, what a town! I lived there for a couple of years, in Twickenham right across from the park and Hampton Court. Have fun discussing our Bolts with fans from all over!

    Thanks dude! Twickenham's a great area- that's where we go to watch our Rugby! I also used to attend a church down that way for a bit - I like that area a lot.

    Thanks for the welcome :)
