    I'll bet you didn't see this one coming, and just in time for X-Mas:

    From: Chargers Ticket Office

    Dear Ticket Holder,

    Thank you again for supporting San Diego Chargers football. The Chargers are once again in playoff contention, battling for our fifth AFC West division title in the last six seasons. The NFL has asked us to begin planning for any potential postseason games to be played at Qualcomm Stadium. The dates for the potential home playoff games are:

    Potential home playoff games:

    Game one:
    January 7/8, 2012 - AFC Wild Card playoffs

    Game two:
    January 22, 2012 – AFC Championship Game


    Your invoice will be arriving via USPS in the next few days with a payment deadline of Thursday, December 29, 2011. Your invoice is also available immediately by logging onto My Chargers Account. If you choose to pay your invoice with a credit card on-line you will be charged for the Wild Card playoff game but not for the AFC Championship Game until it is determined the Chargers will host that game. The system will allow you to pay only for the first round (Game one) and not be charged on your card for the AFC Championship Game (Game two) until January 15, 2012.

    If the Chargers do not host both games, any unused portion of your payment will be applied to your 2012 Season Ticket account.

    Please contact the Chargers Ticket Office at 1-877-CHARGERS if you have any questions.

    Thank you.

    San Diego Chargers

    Yeah, but the payment isn't due until December 29, so we can wait and see how this weekend shakes out before sending anything. If anything happens that eliminates us, no stress. If we still have a decent shot, then you can pony up. Note that if you pay by credit card online, you can pay for only the Wildcard Round if you so choose.

    Just posted the same thing over at my forum. As SL said, at least we can wait to see how this weekend shakes out before having to pay anything.

    Not to stray too far off topic...

    Friends of mine are Packer season ticket holders. They got a playoff ticket invoice even though they were the 6th seed in the NFC and had no shot of a home game. If they wanted to be considered for superbowl tickets, they had to pay the FULL playoff ticket package.

    I'll be calling to confirm tomorrow, but I don't think they can force our refund to be applied to next year. I have some friend who are very on the fence about next year's tickets, so they wouldn't pay for playoff tickets if it can't be refunded. I know it has been refundable in the past, but this letter makes it sound like it is not.

    Reason I think it has to be is because the 'right' to purchase playoff tickets is part of the incentive for 2011 ticket holders. It is a privilege we have already paid for so we should not have to commit money to 2012 to attain it.

    They will automatically apply whatever is paid toward's next year's season tickets. But, you do have the option to request for a refund.

    We were all joking about this Sunday @ the game. Surprised it took until Wed. to get it to be honest.

    Not paying until next week if at all.

    If you pay and they don't go to the playoffs, you CAN get your money refunded.

    True, but it's not easy. I tried it one year. You basically have to beg them for it. You have to call/visit the ticket office, file a request for a refund, then wait for it to get approved.

    We actually will know quite a bit by the time the Chargers take the field tomorrow. All the teams in the race play at 1:00 EST.

    Let the chips fall where they may.
