    My name is David, I'm Australian and have been following the Chargers since the 2008 season. This was pretty much my first look at the NFL and was recommended the Chargers as a team to follow by a work colleague.

    I'm a fan of a tough ground game and tenacious defense (likely from my years growing up with Rugby League here in Aus), so SD seemed to fit me at that time. Needless to say I've been yet another struggling Chargers fan for a while now. Very jaded with the talent that has left the club in recent times, especially LT's retirement. I have two SD jerseys in my wardrobe (Gatsey's and LT's) I don't follow RL anymore and strictly follow American Football now, however lack a great deal of knowledge that only growing up with the game or long exposure can provide, so bear with me if I'm off the mark on topics. :)

    On a personal level, I've been a member of the Aus DOD for going on 14 years now, am 45 yoa and am on my second marriage (three months ago now). My wife "follows" the Ravens (essentially because they have the same uniform colour as her Rugby League team ;), so there is some friendly banter when I tell her they've lost again and haven't been the same since Boldin left for the Niners :p

    Anyways, it's late and I can't sleep, so I could talk for ages. Instead I'll say good night, thank you for having me, and I look forward to learning a lot more about the Chargers and American Football over time.

    Welcome to the boards, man! We have a few Aussies here, sometimes they even take a break from their daily routines and fly down here to catch a game on Sundays...

    Hey guys, thanks for the welcome. Sadly for me Jack, I'm a Blue...but thankfully I haven't really followed the NRL since 2008/2009, so there were only a couple of years of frustration before I lost interest altogether. ;)

    Ironically, I have 7kg of prawns in the fridge for Christmas BBQ tomorrow Concudan. Wow, the Simpsons were right, we really are cliche huh? Btw, 45000+messages is impressive mate, well done!
