Ha ha nice.
Yall better rep hard.
I've been to SD preseason games against the Cowboys where I'd say the attendance was ~40% Cowboys fans. It was a pretty good showing.
I was just thinking this the other day. My guess would be 50%
I went into a sports memorabilia store in SD last weekend (firm retreat, wrong weekend of course as I wish it had been this weekend as I would have gone to game for sure) and there was 3x as much Cowboy stuff for sale as Charger stuff.
whew...this is going to be a takeover.
I am debating about going. Not sure if I want to spend 300 on a ticket or get a great view from home on the TV.
I saw a study once where someone looked at NFL games for home field representation.
When you hear someone say there is 40-50% of a visitor team's fans in the stands, it is never true. It looks that way in extreme cases sometimes because often the out of town fans will spend big to get the lower level seats.
But the facts are that an extremely high representation would be 15-25%. Think of the Arizona Cards games in the old days when Cowboy fans seemed to fill that place up. In reality, it was about 25%--maybe even close to 30%--which is an insane number.
YOU ALREADY KNOW
Cowboy gear the whole time!...We are going out the Gas Lamp District in our Cowboys stuff the night before..Show them how we roll..lol
I get your point but no way you can tell me san fran 2011 wasn't at least 35%.
When we went to AZ last month it was ATLEAST 50%
Yeah I'm aware of that and try to not to exaggerate but the last game in San Diego the entire lower and upper deck on the Cowboy side was almost all Cowboys. It will be insane there.
I lived in Cali for a few years, from SF to LA to SD. I went to the game in SF a couple years ago and it was at least 40% Cowboys fans. I will not believe whatever the official count/stats say, it looked close to 50/50 for me. Me or the wife could walk anywhere in the stadium during the game and be surrounded by Dallas fans, whether it be upper or lower deck.
As for the fans in Cali, the majority are Dallas and the Raiders. The SF fans are really only in the Bay-Area, stopping at the Bay and San Matteo bridges towards Oakland. You don't really see many more of them outside the city. Same goes for the Chargers, most fans are in So Cal only. Dallas and Oakland represent everywhere in the state.
It may have seemed that way.
But look, I have no skin is this game....just going by what I read a few weeks ago.
According to them, It always seems like there are about 2-3x more than there really are because visitors are often more rowdy, get more visable seats (the 10-15,000 nose bleeds are very often far more walk-up home crowd), and dress in team gear.
Kind of like that friend who says his college was 4-1 girls to guys...when about the biggest spread of any major college is maybe 65-35.
I'll be there. Can't wait!!
I'm hearing it was close to 50% on the radio. Mickey says they were ready to run the Chargers fans out the stadium after the Lee pick. Sad, this pitiful franchise doesn't deserve this fanbase.
Very wrong on the 49ers fan base, they are huge in Northern Cali.. All north of Bakersfield to Oregon. Especially in the central valley along with many Raiders & Cowboys fans.
Yea, well, I tended to stay away from the armpit known as Bakersfield. Also, didn't travel much further north than Suasalito. Was mainly talking about the SF area and below.
armpit, lol yes sir
