    Success does not come cheaply – for fans, either.

    For the third straight season, the Chargers have raised their average ticket price for season tickets, which went on sale yesterday. The average increase for 2007 season tickets is $9.

    “What we've seen is an increase in player costs,” Chargers Chief Operating Officer Jim Steeg said. “With the salary cap changes, (the increase) is necessary to pay the costs to be competitive.”
    The Chargers have used approximately $100 million of the $102 million salary cap. Next year's cap is projected to be $109 million.

    thats my thoughts, once the older folks living on fixed incomes can;t keep thier tickets, we will get some awesome seats, and finnaly the bolts side will have tons more poeple actually cheering and not telling other to sit down because they are in the way

    We can hope, but most of those people are handing their seats off to their kids.

    I called yesterday to see what was available so that I could get some of my own seats, and all that they have available is Club and View.

    Are you going tomorrow Comp?

    edit: for those that will be there and do not know, we lost the baby, so please don;t ask about a kid or a baby to my wife. Not a good subject when trying to have fun.
