While the outright rage of the Chargers leaving town seems to have mellowed a bit, there is still a constant and strong anti-Chargers sentiment throughout San Diego. It is a sad situation, but completely understandable considering how the team left, and has hardly even attempted to look back.
San Diego Union-Tribune reporter, Tom Krasovic, recently penned a great piece in which he stated the 1960s as the glory days of sport in San Diego. PCL baseball, the Chargers, Don Coryell at San Diego State, not to mention the multiple other San Diego-based stars in the worlds of gold, tennis, sailing, etc. It must have been something.
On another note, our petition supporting Johnny Robinson for the Pro Football Hall of Fame is beginning to pick up speed, but we need a lot more signatures to make it worthy of being given to the Hall of Fame voters. If you have not yet signed the petition, please do so. It will only take a moment, and will hopefully open the doors for Johnny, and possibly for other AFL’ers down the road.
