    I asked Kevin Acee what the Chargers were doing to prepare themselves to play in one of the loudest stadiums in the league, and here's what he said:

    What are everyone else's thoughts?

    I have a plan - we send a secret agent to turn off the roaring crowd soundtrack.

    Noise will not be a factor in the outcome of this game.

    They Bolts are used to people cheering loudly when they have the ball since the stupid people at Qualcomm don't know when to STFU.

    Every team has their bad fans. That's the price you pay for winning!

    Don't knock our fans. Hate on Pony fans instead!!!

    I have no problem knocking our "fans," plenty of them are idiots, and I'm guessing a lot of them have only been around for a few years. It's just embarrassing that so many of them can't figure out the most elementary ****, like STFU when our offense is on the field. Just because a guy is wearing Chargers gear doesn't mean he can't be a ********.

    Who gives a damn about the noise, it isn't like we've never played there before. Besides, I predict total quiet and empty seats midway through the third QTR.:tup:

    I agree with you both.

    We do have some fans who cheer the whole game. That is not really a bad thing, Rivers will signal for quiet if he needs it.

    Us being quiet on O helps their D also, they can hear snap counts, they can hear audables. So someone cheering the whole game isnt really a measure of intelect in my opinion.

    noise will be a factor, we need to shut them up with LT playing big time ball... :tup:

    To Philip Rivers: Control your emotions, you are like Luke Skywalker in "The Empire Strikes Back" :no:

    I'm not disagreeing with you but as you know, support alone from us smarter fans is NOT enough to keep the Chargers in San Diego.

    You know what they say... "quality and quantity do not always go hand in hand." I'm glad there is no more talk about lack of team support, visiting team fans outnumbering Chargers fans, poor attendance, etc. You can't have it both ways.


    The only exception to that rule is Packers fans but that's a whole different animal than the rest of the NFL. No other team is owned by it's city.

    You are correct, and I get that. But I don't much like it.

    my concern is the last time Rivers played in a dome was Minnesota and he sucked ***. He has to be used to the noise or we are totally screwed

    Let's concentrate on their players. The noise will not be a big factor. We shut down the Colts, we shut down the noise.

    Playing in a dome had nothing to do with it. Rivers went out the next week vs. Indy at home and stunk it up, too. He was in a slump. But he's not anymore.

    He's gonna get his *** kicked by his dad and get his hand chopped off?

    We need Return of the Jedi Luke, not Empire Strikes Back Luke.

    Nope, gotta go hardcore twelvth man here! If i gotta do the damn bird dance anymore vigorasly when the Chargers are on offense I'm gonna end up taking off and flying around the stadium!!!!

    And who the hell on the stadium gameday personnel thinks that it is a great idea to play that damned "Charger" trumpet when they break the huddle!!!! I wouldn't mnd so much if they did it right after a big play than let the crowd calm down before the next play but to play it right as they are going to the line is flat out ridiculous!!!

    Would it kill the bigscreen guys to put a "QUIET" sign up on offense...naw makes too much sense huh!!?? Then maybe the newbies and idiots might get the message instead of them getting mad at me whe I tell them to shut the hell up!!!!!

    I'm tired of either uneducated or just dumbass fans thinking that they should get loud at all times getting a pass and me being the guy who has to be yelled at for trying to "educate them.
