The San Diego Chargers are going to retire Junior Seau’s No. 55 jersey this Sunday in the home opener against the Tennessee Titans. It is a great gesture to the late Seau, who took his own life after enjoying one of the best careers in the history of the Chargers’ franchise.
Unfortunately, many of the people and fans who watched Seau have some of his best seasons with the Chargers may not be able to witness the game or ceremony take place due to NFL local blackout rules.
The Chargers reportedly still have several thousand unsold tickets entering this weekend’s game with the Titans. they have until 1:25 local time today to sell those remaining general tickets. If not, the game will not be televised in Southern California.
I understand the rule. I know why it is in place. But as they always say, there is always an exception to every rule.

The Chargers aim to do something they have never done in the Norv Turner era: start a season 2-0. The challenge seems doable -- all it entails is a home win over a mediocre Tennessee Titans squad -- but San Diego must overcome some injuries and rediscover its offensive rhythm to make it happen.
Sunday is a big day for the Chargers. The team is celebrating its home opener with a uniform "White Out" and a pre-game ceremony honoring the late Junior Seau. Of course, all of that will be tainted if the Bolts fail to add another tally in the win column. To set the table for this pivotal game, we serve up a full preview of each phase of the game.
