    HI everyone,
    I am a native San Diegan and fellow Charger Fan. My parents were also born in San Diego and I have grown up with the Chargers as an active part of my life.
    I came on here today after I found the site through a search. I was upset (again) at a Charger Loss that surely was WRONG! I answered some things on a few threads and was attacked and called a "stupid ****" and to get lost. I am a bit confused. I said supportive things about the Chargers-nothing bad at all. Do you not accept new members? I would like to continue to come on here and support our team, but I want to make sure Charger fans who are just new members here are accepted. Can anyone fill me in on this? :icon_shrug:

    first off, welcome to the forums. not everyone in here is a chargers fan, most of the people if not all, that have been told to piss off, like angrily, were jerks from denver boards. annnnd as long as you arent a troll, if you stick around youll see what i mean, you wont catch heat. generally, even if we disagree with someone about something we dont hold it against them, we all tailgate together after all :)

    I believe it has to do with your sign on name. just guessing mind you. But it sounds very Denver-esque.
    Just post, and your Charger fanom will show through. It is tough loss to swallow and folks are on edge. Not that it excuses such things....

    Well, that makes me feel better! I was beginning to get discouraged! I have "lurked" a bit, but registered officially tonight because of all the ******* Bronco fans who were making comments! Thanks for welcoming me!

    wellcome to the forum, don't mind the locals, some get upset (too upset) after a tough loss, you'll learn to understand them (except for poof)

    P.S. Maybe a charger related avatar might help :icon_shrug:

    crazyshannoo,

    Having browsed your post history, I think people just jumped the gun on you because they thought you were a Bronco fan. Not to mention there were some douchebag Donk fans on earlier that everyone was blasting, and you probably got caught in the crossfire due to mistaken identity.

    Welcome to Bolt Talk, and stick around and post more.

    Oh, my name is Shannon and I have used this sign on name for years on a lot of boards I go to. Maybe people assumed I meant I was crazy for Shannon Sharpe. LOL NOT THE CASE! It is my name and nothing more. I don't know how to go about changing it at this point....:icon_shrug:

    any time, at the end of the day, if we dont see eye to eye on something, personally i wont hold it against you, some of my good friends and i are way way way beyond seeing eye to eye, but im still a-okay with em :) :yes:

    for future reference, its not a big deal, but usually you type under the person you quote ;)

    Yeah welcome to the site. 99.9% of the folks here are diehard and cool charger fans. It's just been a bad day for all of us.

    I saw the post you referenced where you got blasted. I think it was just a case of mistaken identity. We were getting influxed with all these new names that were all Denver douchebags, and then we saw your name which was new as well. It pretty much didn't matter what you posted, you were doomed! :lol:

    Anyways, welcome to the boards! It's a good group of people here, so much so that I don't go to any other Charger boards, I get what I need here! :tup:
