    14,000 seats unsold. Between this and the 50-60K Pittsburgh fans who invaded Fed Ex Field in Washinton earlier in the year for a key game for the Redskins (the Skins had to use a silent count in that home game due to the noise from opposing fans), maybe some of the out of town San Diego bashers (mostly on the U-T boards) can STFU with the crying during the season when we have trouble selling the remaining 400 or so obstructed view seats to games against the likes of the Chiefs or Texans or some other low interest game.

    THIS is PATHETIC.

    A midwestern city in the heart of football country with a longtime fanbase going to the playoffs for the first time in several years....and they can't get excited?

    I actually like the Vikes and have several friends who are Vikes fans so I hate to use this example....but my friends..by contrast, the Q will be rocking this weekend like no other stadium. I feel sorry for the Colt fans who show up to face the same kind of abuse we gave the mule contingent on Sunday.

    Don't let anyone tell you San Diego isn't a football town.

    Vikings are getting sold when the climate is right. Maybe LA could use another purple and gold team.

    what a bummer :( especially in the playoffs - i wonder, if the economy there is just that bad maybe? that's the only reason I could imagine a playoff game not selling out, especially since they didn't have trouble selling out BEFORE the playoffs...

    Minny has never been known as football country. They love their hockey and baseball.

    Not to mention the economy and throw in rumors of them being sold.

    They play in the weak Norris division and will probably get blown out by Philly

    I heard that a large percentage of their season ticket holders refused to buy any tickets. I think it was something like 40%.
