The Los Angeles Rams are set to host their first playoff game in Southern California since 1989 Saturday night.
On the field, the 2017 regular season went well for both the Rams and the newest Los Angeles NFL franchise, the Chargers. But it was a much different story with sparse attendance for both teams, most notably the Chargers.
So it’s not too big of a surprise that fans absolutely trolled the Chargers in the lead up to the Rams’ game against Atlanta Saturday night.

That’s a whole lot of ouch right there.
Chargers owner Dean Spanos has not been immune from criticism since relocating the Chargers from San Diego about a calendar year ago. But to throw the entire Chargers’ organization under the bus while propping up the soon-to-be Las Vegas Raiders is just troll-hard stuff.
To be fair, the Raiders do have a larger fan presence in Los Angeles stemming from their time in Southern California from 1982-1994. Still, that’s a major shot across the bow right there.
