    Hmm...same situation as last week.

    Can a team ask for an extension in back to back weeks? If that happens, no blackout.

    If they are reasonably sure they can sell the remaining tickets they will ask for and receive an extension. The Bolts have gotten extensions pretty regularly even in the past few years so I don't believe there is a "back-to-back" rule.

    2000-2500 is consistently the amount they need for a sell-out and I can't remember the time they've been at that point and NOT sold out the game. Between fans picking up last minute tickets to avoid missing the game, Channel 8 and <insert indian casino here> it usually gets done. Fingers crossed!

    Not for me... I don't think I could go through that much drama two weeks in a row. Not sure how you season ticket guys and gals do it.

    Well, I have two season tickets and sold one to another poster here, Buck Melanoma, who flew in from Virgina for the opener.

    Right after the Raider game I asked him if he stil wanted to fly all the way out here to see the game.

    His response was "being a Charger fan ain't for the faint hearted". He's right.:icon_toast:
