Bolts Buzz: "NFL 3-D"

A First Look at StubHub Center

Sam Farmer of the LA Times was on hand to capture the experience of the first Chargers game at StubHub Center.

Much has been said about the intimate environment that the stadium provides, and as Farmer detailed, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell determined it will be great for the fans.  In addition, former Charger and ESPN analyst Marcellus Wiley raved about the fan experience.  After all, he knows how important that fan-player relationship is having played the game:

"This is NFL 3-D," said Marcellus Wiley, an ESPN analyst and commentator on KABC's pregame show along with former San Diego Chargers teammate Shawne Merriman. "I'm excited for the players just to have something different, a way to interact with the fans."

It isn't just the fans paying attention to the players, Wiley said, the players — even though they might act cavalier — are paying attention to the fans.

"During pregame warmups, they wear the headphones to try to pretend that they're not listening," he said. "But they're really listening. They know when you scream out their name. The energy is contagious. I'm feeding off of you, you're feeding off of me."
