    I know the truth. You got 82 and 92 confused.
    That's why your answer is calling me an idiot and a bandwagoned.

    Though I don't see why you feel such a deep need to cover up a mistake like that. Everybody has made them. But you'll fight a trillion posts before you admit to a simple mistake.
    You act as if this mistake is threat to your manhood or something.

    I don't think that's what people are having a tough time understanding.

    I think the confusing part is the implication that comes behind your desire to beat this point down ad neausum in this thread.

    Most fans won't stick with the team....ok, what's your point? What bearing should this factoid have on my decision?

    Am I to take this news in and have it affect whether or not I choose to continue to follow the team?

    Because if you're not lecturing us all on the after affect on the former fan bases after a team moves with the intent of telling us that's how we're supposed to respond you may as well be telling people the sky is blue.

    You just don't know what your talking about....again!:yes:

    I have NO problem admitting when I'm wrong, when it comes to the Chargers,But that's never happened! :yes: I've followed this team since I was 9. You joined in after the Colts left Baltimore. :yes:

    Keep flapping your gum's.

    Colts4life, strikes again! :icon_rofl:

    That question was directed towards one poster in particular, and it wasn't you.

    Old age has seemed to really take a toll on you and Conc. You're both only in your 40's but have the memory of 70 year olds.

    I joined in 79. The Colts were still in Baltimore at that time but they weren't my team. I've stated it many times, so please take note this time.

    But... let's say your story is true. If I had jumped on the Chargers bandwagon in 84... they finished 7-9. That wouldn't be a very good bandwagon to jump on, would it.
    So even if your story were true... how could I be a bandwagoner if I jumped aboard while they were a losing team.
    So there's something else you can add to your list of wrongs!!! :lol: :yes:

    Scroll back and read some of Concs posts on this thread.
    I'd pretty much have to write a book to explain.

    I've somewhat followed along in the purse fight, but in the end it all centers around the same thing we were first going back and forth on.

    What is hard to understand is if you mean what you type or there is some other meaning you think you conveyed...

    There are colts fans in baltimore. I am sure there are sports bars that still have Colt parafenalia up on the walls. Again, it seems you are talking absolutes. To that point I ask you to provide evidence to back up what you are saying.

    Are you saying the Ravins have no fan base in Cleveland? None?
    Are you saying that the Cardinals have no fan base in St. Louis? None? I can tell you of 10 people I met when in SL that loved BOTH Cardinals teams... So I dont think your theory holds water.

    I hope this helps you understand that I am on my rocker, now bring the topic back to Chargers moving and stop trying to insult people to prove a point.

    TO ALL, lets stop the insults. They are not needed. Consider this a friendly request before things have to escilate. Thanks...

    :lol: No, YOU are saying there are NO people who still follow their former home team.

    You met 10 people in St Louis that like the Cardinals... Well 10 is not the population of St. Louis. So I don't think your theory holds. :lol:
    10 is not a small minority... it's hardly a percentage.

    If there is anybody in Baltimore that likes the Colts, it's about the same #. Like I keep saying... "Go to a Ravens forum and ask them how much they love the Indianapolis Colts!"
    There may be some bars in Baltimore that have Baltimore Colts paraphernalia on the walls but with it is also the front page of the Colts moving out of Baltimore at 2:30 AM in a blizzard.
    They hate the Indianapolis Colts!!!!

    You talk as if everybody was happy the day their home team left town.
    Like I keep saying... instead of basing all of your assumptions around these 10 people you met in St. Louis...
    Go to a Ravens forum and discuss the Indianapolis Colts.
    Go to a Browns forum and discuss the Ravens and Art Modell.
    Go to a Rams forum and discuss the Arizona Cardinals.
    Go to a Texans forum and discuss the Tennessee Titans.
    Maybe that will give you a better idea of how the MAJORITY feels!!!


    Your "10 people theory" is squat!!!

    Alan, I consulted for nearly two years with a company of about 350 people. Of those 350 10 were fans. So if you want to laugh yourself silly about not being the whole population go ahead. Again, I think you are posting something other than you 'think' your posting. Hard to carry on a conversation with you, when you dont even know what it is your posting... Just sayin...

    Say, do you know the whole population of San Diego? :icon_huh:

    Hey Conc... I know 10 people who listen to "45 Grave."

    What makes that so confusing is that why they are not playing in sold out arena instead of dive bars!!! :hilarious:


    The "10 People Conc Theory!!!" :hilarious: :hilarious:

    You bet I'm laughing at you... 10 people?!!! :lol:

    What is stopping you? :icon_shrug:


    BTW... 350 isn't even close to the population of St. Louis either. 10 out of 350 is hardly a sliver.
    So I don't get your "10 people theory" at all.

    I sure as hell am not going to root for any team that calls Los Angeles home, but if the Chargers move out of San Diego. Then stick a fork in me I am done. I have Baseball, and that goes year round here in San Diego.

    Since im from Pa. it wouldn't be any different to me but i surely hope they stay in Diego becuse it would be hard too image them some where else.The real killer would be if they changed the charger name that would be their whole identity gone,that's what would really suck

    I think we all want them to stay, but you bring up a chilling factor. I know the NFL insited on the Browns franchise name remaining in Cleveland. It would suck if the San Diego Chargers became something else all together...:icon_eek: :tdown:

    You posted this:
    Now correct me if I am wrong but you are stating as a fact that there is no fan base for the cardinals in SL. There is. There are more than 10. 10 I know personally. So again, you are wrong.

    As to your post about insulting people. I have not insulted you. If you feel that is untrue, please accept my humble apologies... But the request remains. Discuss things without insulting one another.

    If you feel you need further clarification please discuss it in PM.

    You still haven't informed me as to what the point is behind this lecture of what the majority feels.

    Before you call out the idiots consider that it should have said "you're and idiot or "you are" an idiot

    but

    YOUR an idiot ?

    I love the irony. :lol:

    Only on a forum do we get such priceless moments. :lol: :icon_banana:

    Again... 10 out of 350 is next to none. There may be some who have good memories of the St. Louis Cardinals but that doesn't mean that today they cheer for the Arizona Cardinals.
    There are many people in Baltimore who were around during the Johnny Unitas days and can spend all day talking about the Baltimore Colts. But they HATE the Indianapolis Colts.

    You're the one who keeps using phrases like "none," "all," and "everybody." What I said several times "people who still follow their former home team are a small minority. The majority of people in those cities hate their former team!"

    As for insults... all I did was cracked about age towards you and LVBF. I think you better scroll back and take a look some posts from both of you if you're concerned about insults.

    Funny that huh ? I agree. The Chargers have an out in that they started in Los Angeles

    The old "Dog Pound" at the Browns stadium would have tore down that part of the country if they lost the Browns name.

    Our Chargers Lightning endzone does not even come close to what the Dog Pound was to the Browns. Those crazy fucs threw out dog biscuits, dinosaur bones, you name it out onto the field and at the players. The snowball which knocked out one of our coaches is nothing compared to what was launched from the Brown's dog pound area.

    We played the Browns the year everyone knew they were bailing and it was here in San Diego. That was the only game where I could not play TAPS for those fans in the parking lot. :icon_eek: I could see it in their eyes that their team was getting yanked and rubbing it in was just classless. I would hate any SOB that would rub it in "that way". It is the ONLY freaking time I have haired out in giving a team **** with the horn. If I had to do it all over again.....I would do the same thing.

    K. Well it first started with Conc not agreeing that the vast majority of fans don't follow their former home team.

    Then I brought up how we mock Raiders fans by calling them "Traidors." We laugh at how they have so many fans in LA when LA doesn't have a team.
    Conc said "there aren't any Chargers fans that say that." I proved him wrong."
    If we became LA Chargers fans, wouldn't just like them?

    Now he feels that the 10 people (out of 350) that he knows proves that St. Louis is loaded with Cardinals fans.
    Well if there's 10 for every 350... that's hardly any.
