    Chargers fans not amused by team's 15% off sale

    The San Diego Chargers team store will have a Black Friday sale on Friday, with team merchandise 15 percent off.

    It's the second year the team's service provider, Centerplate, put on a Black Friday sale, but spokesman Kris Sargent said last year's sale didn't get much of a marketing push. This year they're letting people know.

    'We got with the Chargers, and we're working a little bit closer," Sargent said. "They posted it on their (Facebook) page."

    Indeed they did. The post received 435 comments in two hours. Frustrated by missing the playoffs two years in a row and likely again this year, fans used the posting to vent their frustration with Coach Norv Turner, General Manager A.J. Smith, quarterback Phil Rivers, and the organization as a whole.

    Below find a sampling of some of the remarks.
    • "Black Sunday was already taken." -- Dave Unvert
    • "Seems right, they are only giving 15% on the field anyway right?"-- Fredo Barajas
    • "You might as well call it a Rivers sale. Pick 6 for free." -- Jomar Villar
    • "Will you be selling the Fire NORV T-SHirts?" -- Eddie Baker
    • "Looks like Rivers miss understood and took 15% off his passer rating" -- Michael Sampson
    • "And it's not even April Fools....Oh wait, the whole season's been April Fools."-- Cathy Szames
    • "Can I get a shirt with a big L on it." -- Dave Feland
    • "Do you have any brown paper bags with the eye holes already cut out?" -- Lisa Jones
    • "The chargers should give their gear away, just like they gave up a 24 point lead at halftime against the broncos...." -- Tex Green
    • "Im embarrassed to wear the stuff I already have..." -- George Specht
    • "15% isnt that how much effort our team puts out?" -- Jose Gomez
    • "It should be called the 7 points off sale" -- Johnny Jones
    • "15 % .... the commission Rivers will be making selling cars with Ryan Leaf at the Used Car Lot." -- Alan Moody
    • "Can I get a Takeo Spikes game worn jersey? I won't have to worry about any grass stains on it." -- Cavan D. Murray

    I think the Chargers store should give everyone a chance to intercept Rivers for additional discounts...

    No those are full value, however you are going to have to wait. It seems the manufacturer is unable to keep up with the demand. There is an estimated partial delivery date of 06/2013 with a full delivery date of 02/2014

    I understand people being pissed, but Charger fans are by and large a bunch of crybabies. No matter what they post on Facebook, the comments quickly turns into a bunch of crying. An article about a nice painting some dude did, people use it as an opportunity to cry. An article about honoring someone, crying. There is a time and place for everything. So a bunch of people crying in a post about sales items doesn't shock me.

    I think the issue is that you're making this a "sale" and selling items at their MSRP, at a time when the fan base is livid with ownership and management. It comes off as, "**** your expectations, buy our ****" instead of "hey, here's a deal for our fans."
