Joseph MacCrae, known as the SD Sign Guy, is taking the hurt of the Chargers leaving San Diego and channeling it into something else in the form of Los Angeles billboards aimed at the team and the NFL.
Anti-Dean Spanos and NFL billboards in Los Angeles crowdfunded by Joseph MacCrae, known as the SD Sign Guy. MacCrae is making sure his voice - and that of thousands of former fans - isn't ignored as the Chargers make their move north this season.
SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - It's going to take a lot more than a letter from his former hometown team to ease the pain former Chargers fans felt after the team left San Diego.
One of those former fans, Joseph MacRae, is channeling those emotions into a formidable response with billboards aimed at the team and NFL in Los Angeles.
MacRae spoke with 10News Sports Director Ben Higgins about what he says is a hypocrisy he says the NFL has exhibited in relocating teams.
"The NFL, the 'no freaking loyalty,'" MacRae said. "I mean, they relocated three teams in one year but they shove this whole football is family down your throat."
MacRae said he plans to attend the Chargers' home opener on Sunday, Sept. 17, where he'll have a special sign displayed as long as he's allowed to continuing showing it.
