    I'm giving these assholes until the next payment is due (end of the month) to work something out, if not, no payment and I'll be asking for a refund. F*ck these greedy homos, all of them.

    Then you may as well cancel now. Don't expect anything until April 6th. That's when the hearing for the NFLPA's (or whatever they're calling it now) request for an injunction is heard.

    No, i just never renewed them. I figured if they didnt get a deal done, i wasnt going to renew (probably never will again after this stupid ****, they've lost my money for good) , and if they did, im sure i could get my seats back, its not like its hard to get season tickets these days, and if i couldnt get my exact seats back, im sure i could still get good, similar seats. Its not like i had great seats to begin with (lodge 58)

    Not season tix, but DTV Sunday Ticket is likely to go bye bye for me. I think renewal deadline is May or June. So I figure they have until end of April to work it out or I'll be putting that money to something worthwhile and saying F You to the league for this year.

    Yeah, but at Aztec games, it may as well be open seating. It's not like all the best seats are taken.

    (Before I get BLASTED by SDSU alums, I went to SDSU & had season tickets to SDSU football for years)

    You mean aztec games? Yep. Most don't even go to the game. They come in late and then fill up the stadium just to see skyshow.

    Yep. Except now it's during an Aztec game since the Padres moved to Petco.

    I have never been to Petco Park, although I hear it's nice. Since I moved from Dego in 99 I am sure a lot of things have changed, except maybe the traffic during rush hour.

    It used to be that way at the Padres games when they were always in last place. But as they played better ball, the stands filled up with people wanting to watch the game and the fireworks.

    We cancelled all of our season tix this year. Not really because of the lockout or anything, but because it had become too much of a production and nobody was really having fun anymore. Didn't help that a faider fan puked behind my parents seats...

    The whole environment is no fun anymore. The parking deals suck. The workers suck. The security people suck. The players suck. The fans seem mostly clueless or the stadium is filled with opposition. Just kind of had enough after more than a decade of this stuff.

    This is disappointing information for us fans away from SoCal. I would like to think gameday would be nothing like you mentioned, but I believe you.

    getting a wave started when the Chargers have the ball has got to be a one of the smartest fan moves possible.

    I can't disagree with exodus and SDRH8R on the intelligence levels (or lack thereof) displayed by other Chargers fans in the stand. Most of them make me wanna rage. I am fortunate to have a great group of long timers sitting around us, we all enjoy each others company. Seat location isn't the greatest (plaza 23 row 6/closed endzone for those who haven't been to the Q) but I have been afraid to change seats because no way will we get next to another group of people who are this awesome.

    Also, my wife informed me the other day we won't be canceling and pretty much made me pay for them. So much for my big F*CK YOU stand. [​IMG]

    I can tell you that its not QUITE that bad as far as fans. While yeah there's a bunch of dumbasses there's also a lot of areas of really good fans. I've had tickets for five years sat in three different sections kinda getting a wide feel for it and its just a mixed bag. But yeah the parking price wise sucks, and the security people can be schmucks still its alot of fun to go there with good fans including bolttalk and just have a good time

    I'm in plaza 26 & have a great set of people around me too. Folks in front of me (5) had their seats since 1978. They live in Hemet and almost cancelled last season. With what's going on now, they just might cancel this year.

    It’s not about the game day experience; it’s the whole freaking league. They don’t care about us little peons anymore. They more interested in corporate America and how they can please them as they have the big bucks. I enjoy going to every game, I have a great time at each and every tailgate, I will miss the camaraderie and the whole parking lot experience.

    I have all ready gone through a players strike and a lockout. I don’t want to go through it again. They knew 2 years ago there was going to be a lockout, why couldn’t they get together last offseason?

    Well after getting a letter from the Chargers, I have made one more payment, I still owe $500.00, but I am not going to pay them off untill I know for sure there will be a season. Otherwise I will put them off for as long as I can.
