Team president and CEO Dean Spanos told the North County Times on Thursday that he believes the home opener won’t be sold out, and thus not televised locally.

“It’s a disappointing trend, to be sure, and I do believe that the home opener will most likely be blacked out,” Spanos said.  “It’s an unfortunate fallout from the economy as a whole. I think Southern California is still suffering, and in some ways the region may be worse off today than it was a year ago.

“That’s my opinion, but you go forward with what you have,” Spanos said. “We try to make the games as fan-friendly as we can.  We haven’t raised ticket prices in over three years.  We have payment schedules to ease the burden on the potential season-ticket holder.  We’re trying to make the game-day experience more fulfilling for the fans.  We’re sensitive to the economic conditions, and we know we’ll have to ride this tough economic period out.”
