    Are these guys serious? XX Radio was talking about another morning rally before the game. I say screw that! Let's get to the big game first before staging any beer drinking rallys!

    This is a different team now.

    I think the rally should include Rivers driving his teammates around in his mini van.

    Exactly. We need to stop acting like we've accomplished something by getting into the playoffs. That's the loser mentality.

    Does anyone really think a fan rally is why the team lost?

    No, but it's still not something we need to do since we haven't done squat.

    I would think a prospective lawyer wouldn't engage in post hoc arguments.

    They don't lose because they have a rally.

    What's the problem with it? The entire point is to get the fans pumped up...go get pumped up.

    The only reason people are hesitant is because they don't want to feel like they're celebrating too early.

    I can understand that sentiment, but just go get riled up so you can take the energy into the stadium where it'll count.

    What is a 'rally' as talked about by 1090?. What exactly happens?, is there a purpose?.

    The team makes its own luck!

    Losing Hardwick the first game of the season was bad luck.
    Losing Williams to IR was bad luck.
    Suffering the injuries the Charger suffered was bad luck.
    Ball bouncing to the opposition rather than to us, bad luck.

    But the Chargers have one hell of a salt shaker, routinely knock on wood, grow four leaf clovers, and have depopulated the local rabbit supply...

    Luck is made and the Chargers are not victims of luck this year!!!!!!! :abq2:

    The XX1090 rally is basically an early morning party at a bar somewhere. The goal is to get people excited about the upcoming game.

    Some say we have nothing to celebrate as we haven't won anything yet. Can't argue with that.

    Other's say it isn't a celebration of anything, but merely a launching point before the game. Can't argue with that either.

    Superstitions aside (Chargers have been known to lose the game after such a rally), it's hard to prolong that excitement from when the party ends (9am on a Friday) until game time which is at 1:40pm on Sunday.

    I agree entirely

    But still as a fan I'm superstitious, especially in the playoffs. Especially when over the last few years every time XX Sports Radio has held a rally we have lost the next game.

    That's my right to be so and I'm sticking to it dangnabit!!! :flag:

    We've got the league's best QB.

    He hates to lose.

    Party on. :icon_party:

    Have a rally ON SUNDAY - not on Friday that you have to be up at 5am for and you're done by noon :p

    Hell even on Saturday makes more sense :icon_shrug:

    Personally, I'd just prefer to wait until we can have one big *** knock down drag out 3 day weekend long party after we've earned the right to book tix to Miami. Cause if we're gonna do a rally, we should go big or go home :lol: and for THE big game. I think here in town we do a pretty damn good job of partying it up on our own before gametime and getting amped for kickoff - we don't need BR and the clown to host an early morning show at the House of Blues.
