Chargers’ Keenan Allen, Melvin Ingram urging fans to attend games in San Diego

Some Chargers players are pretty pumped up that the team will be spending the 2016 season in San Diego, and they took to Twitter Friday to urge fans to attend the team’s home games.

Shortly after the news was announced, wide receiver Keenan Allen said to fans the “stadium better be packed.”

Linebacker Melvin Ingram also issued a challenge to get the fans to show up:

It’s obvious why the players would want the fan support at games, but they’re really mistaken about who’s to blame for the issue. It’s mostly about the owner Dean Spanos not wanting to privately fund a stadium in San Diego, which is why he is looking to move. Why would fans pay to support a team owned by a man who’s trying to leave?

Of course, players don’t always see issues that way, and it’s much easier to call out fans than a team owner.
