Chargers players face backlash after calling for sellouts on Twitter

A pair of Chargers players faced significant backlash for their call to San Diego fans.

Friday night, Melvin Ingram and Keenan Allen both tweeted to fans telling them to show up to games since the team is staying. While well-intentioned, it’s easy to argue that they came off as standoffish. Here’s just a small sampling of fans who felt the same way:

Perhaps these messages were meant to rally the fanbase, but they both come off rather standoffish. The fans noticed, and were very loud and clear in their response: we were there all along, how about you win some games?

So, uh, in short, whoops. Bad idea, guys. This is just a small sampling of the responses that were lobbed their way. Both were quick to clarify their remarks upon seeing the torrent of angry tweets.

The fact of the matter is the Chargers could sell out every game and make the playoffs, but none of it would matter if the team can’t get the deal it wants to build a new stadium in light of the agreement with the Rams.
