With the Chargers officially moving to Los Angeles, a lot of fans have decided to move on from the team.
After the debacle, some fans feel like they’ve been stabbed in the back by owner Dean Spanos and want nothing to do with the Los Angeles Chargers. I’ve noticed that some fans who followed our Twitter account have unfollowed us, too.
Again, these notes were taken on Tuesday, and after taking a look at each of their accounts almost a full day later, roughly 1,000 fans unfollowed the Chargers on Twitter and roughly 1,450 fans unfollowed the team on Facebook. Oddly, their “total page likes” are up 1.2 percent from last week.
It makes sense: The Chargers have a very disgruntled fan base (if they even have one left). But that’s not the only reason why they are where they are. The Chargers finished in last place for the second consecutive year (nine total wins in two seasons) and haven’t made the playoffs since 2013. And the way they’ve been coached, including the way they’ve lost games and suffered injuries over the past few years, makes you want to stop watching.
Based off the information shown above, winning doesn’t cure everything, but it could be a start for the Chargers–and their remaining (and potential new) fans–going forward.
