    I wonder if the preseason standards for a "sellout" are different than the regular season.

    Nope. Same standards apply, 60,000 is considered a sellout. Club seats do not figure into that number. Chargers had 20,000 at fan fest this past Saturday, a record crowd. Maybe just enough bought tickets?

    This should probably be pinned/convert to mega thread. I'm sure it'll pop back up vs Jaguars and Jets

    I just find it amusing that the Chargers have managed to sellout all their (meaningless) preseason games before, but then had several regular season games that didn't sellout. No one ever said the American consumer was smart. ;)

    I almost kept a straight face saying that

    With the exception of the last game. We ALWAYS seem to get stuck with game 4 at home. I give my tickets to that game to teachers at my son's school.

    Being in Missouri and sickly for anything charger.....

    I'd love to waste 3 hours watching my bolts to potentially be slap around some cowgirls.

    Now who/where can I tune in?

    This will be the first year since 06 that I won't be able to watch my beloved team s every game. :/

    I did sign up for nfl now but I doubt my crappy cell service will get me more than a few highlights. If anyone would be so kind as to put me on the Dvdr mailing list, well you would be the king of man's. ( or womans)

    I'll gladly watch all 16 quarters of P season vs the chefs and rams.

    That's good news for the locals who care. The NFL needs to offer specific team packages to out of region fans or allow the individual teams sell them. I don't want purchase Directv or cabletv for the privilege of viewing football and I already pay for the net and I know it can be done.

    For at least one season NFL Sunday ticket was available on a Playstation 3. That stopped. Have to wonder with the PS4 and XBone battling it out for gamer supremacy (PS 4 is winning at the moment), one of them may pick it up.

    I know very little about game boxes and that's not much less than I know about computers unless it's talking to an engine of some type or another.

    Number one interest going into this game is coming out injury free for both teams. The game it's self only counts to the coaches and players, it may still have some fun highlights though.
