Spirit Day Becomes Day for Fans To Speak Out

Save Our Bolts, the fan-driven grassroots movement wanted this day to celebrate Charger and San Diego team spirit – Casual Friday to be Chargers Friday. With the recent mud-slinging between the city and the team, the die-hard and casual fans have become collateral damage.

After organizing several meet-ups and discounts at restaurants and businesses around the county the group had to adapt their plans. “We realize the Chargers fans of San Diego county are not feeling spirit right now. Most are angry and frustrated. We think it is more important than ever to gather together and make ourselves heard,” said David Agranoff of Save Our Bolts.

Fans will be gathering for meet-ups at Cali Comfort in Spring Valley starting at 3pm, The Tilted Kilt in Mission Valley at 5pm and BJ’s Brewhouse at 430pm also in Mission Valley. Save Our Bolts supporters and  Charger fans will be available to express themselves on camera or the radio.

In this rapidly developing story the voice of the fans have been lost. This is a unique opportunity for the media to talk to fans during the off-season.

As part of Spirit Day, Save Our Bolts is still calling on fans to wear their San Diego team gear and take pictures and use the hashtags: #619Day and #DontBolt. “We know it looks bleak but it is not too late to make your voice and passion be heard.”

BoltBlitz.com Talks with Fabiani

Recently, Mark Fabiani was interviewed by BoltBlitz.com about the stadium situation in San Diego and Los Angeles. There is a lot of information out there in the media and on the radio, however, we encourage you to take your time and read this interview to stay informed.

Here is just a snippet of the interview:

BoltBlitz.com: How badly do you want the Chargers to remain in San Diego? Or are you strictly focused on what provides the Spanos’ family with the most lucrative deal?

Mark: If Dean and his family didn’t want the Chargers to remain in San Diego, we would have given up long ago. There have been stadium options available in LA going back to 2003, when AEG was proposing a stadium near Staples Center. Ed Roski’s stadium site in the City of Industry was fully entitled in 2008. AEG’s Farmers Field site has been fully entitled for years now as well. If the Spanos family wanted to move the Chargers out of San Diego, the team would have been gone a long time ago.
