Chargers avoid invasions because they defend SoFi

Because SoFi Stadium is home to the LA Chargers and the LA Rams, it is designed for the comfort and pleasure of all NFL fans. Only the performance of the home team can make this stadium a tough place to play for visitors. In the scenario where the LA Rams host the 49ers? The Rams are dropping the ball.

The LA Chargers face the same scenario whenever they host the Las Vegas Raiders at SoFi Stadium.  Why haven’t they been subjected to the same takeover of SoFi Stadium by the horde of Raiders fans who remain in the Los Angeles area, and cheered for the Raiders during their time at playing for LA?

The Chargers are 2-2 against the Raiders in the past two seasons and 1-1 against the Raiders at SoFi Stadium. They win at SoFi against the Raiders, which gives the entire ‘Black and Silver invasion’ narrative no intrigue, no compelling narrative, nothing to hook readers.

Are 49ers really a certain win at SoFi?

The Rams blew a substantial lead in the final game of the 2021 NFL season, and that has, in turn, fueled the mysticism that the 49ers own the Rams and live in the Rams heads rent-free. It hasn’t helped that many Niners fans troll ruthlessly and relentlessly on social media.

The Rams organization is solely responsible for the defense of the fortress, repelling invasions of all types, and sending fans of other teams back home disappointed. It’s time for the LA Rams to find the strength, the passion, or the good luck charm to win this one. The 49ers fans show up at SoFi Stadium to witness their team get a victory. Only the LA Rams team can deny them that outcome.

SoFi will only earn its rightful place among NFL football stadiums if the LA Rams hold up their end of the bargain and start beating the 49ers. Otherwise, it will be a wonderful place to visit and take pictures of, but it will never ascend to the ranks of some of the best football stadiums in the NFL.

Lambeau Field? Short of creature comforts. Huge on tough places to win. That’s what the Rams need to create at SoFi, starting now.

light. Trending. Did the LA Rams just give Tom Brady reasons to retire?
