    I wish they'd move the cannon back to the 50 yard line behind the visitor's bench. Anyone remember Bum Phillips damn near coming out of his shoes? :lol:

    During the playoff game against Miami in January of '95 the cannon was back in that corner and every time it went off Don Shula looked like he was going to have a heart attack. I vote we leave it there going forward.

    I sure hope they go through a lot of ammo this year!!

    Go Chargers!!!

    I think you're right, it may have been Wade. Damn it was funny!

    I noticed that they have put up some bleachers in the area where the cannon used to be. (By the player's tunnel.)

    Don't know if this was a one game thing or if those bleachers will stay there for extra seating.

    great thread tricia !!!

    and a great pic of the cannon itself firing off !!!

    i did not take notice on where the cannon was located being that i was feeling good and all but i will look out for it when we play our next home game ..

    the guy who brings the cannon parks within the circle near the east end zone so i would guess it was better for him to place it where it is best for him ...

    btw in case you all dont know .. the visiting teams owners watch the game from ( lodge 44 ) so i take it that they will have a better view of the cannon when it fires off after every San Diego Charger score !!!
