Anyone who’s observed a Los Angeles Chargers game in 2017 has no doubt noted that the stands tend to be filled with many opposing team’s fans. As it turns out, players like Keenan Allen have made that same observation.

Allen is not the first Chargers’ player to note this. With all of the controversy around the move from San Diego to Los Angeles, the tepid reception from the fans is not surprising.

Fans who have gone to the StubHub center have seen some good football from the actual home team. After starting the season 0-4, Los Angeles has fought back to a 6-6 record and sits atop the AFC West with the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders.
