    There are still tickets available to the game on Ticketmaster. If they don't sell, will we be able to watch the game in Southern California?

    According to this article, if they don't sell the rest of the tickets, there will be a blackout.

    Anyone know what's up?

    Do you really think they will black out a playoff game?

    If it's not sold out, yes. It's happened many times before in the NFL.

    The Chargers did not do a very good job of letting the public know that tickets were available for this game. Everyone assumed it was a sellout. Now, there's going to be a scramble to get the tickets sold. If only a modest number remain, I expect the local CBS affiliate will buy them out.

    There is absolutely no chance of a blackout.

    Yeah, if the tickets don't get bought up, maybe you out-of-towners can provide updates in the game day thread.

    I know, but it would be nice to have descriptions of what fans are seeing on the TV screen, including replays and announcer comments.

    I think the threshold for a tv sellout is less then actual ticket/seat capacity.

    Please. It is bad enough a thread is started asking this question and then some ******** writer implies a blackout, then the fans.....

    Dude - get a effing grip.

    It is a rule that 72 hours prior to kickoff, the Chargers must have "X" amount of seats sold.

    The Chargers ALWAYS hold back tickets for sale to the general public who may want to become season ticket holders next year and release them a few days before the playoff games. These are usually snached up by the brokers for re-sale and why credit cards with addresses outside So. Cali will not be honored to purchase a ticket.

    If anyone is running with the idea the playoffs have a snowballs chance in hell of not selling out, give me what you are smoking.

    Get ahold of yourself Munkayboy! ;)

    350, the NFL will either lift the blackout (has done that before) or some company like Syquan (Sp?) will buy them (has done that before). The game will be televised!

    True. I imagine there are a lot of fans that:

    A) thought the game was a sell out, because the season ticket holders were expected to purchase their tickets.

    B) have a new plasmascreen hanging on their wall and are throwing 'an excuse to put people in fornt of it' party.

    3) are flat brokified from the Holidays

    IV) Have joined with Donna fry and will be going to try and pet Sea Lions at La Jolla.

    E) Just are afraid of the Rain

    F) Are raider fans and are trying to replace this reality with thier fantasy one.

    G) Dont like my posts and are staying away in protest.

    Jim Steeg was on XX Sports Radio and said there was good traffic on the phone lines and a line at the stadium to buy the tickets. Have faith.
