THE CHARGERS OFFERED 60 FUCKING PERCENT OF HIS VALUE AS THE OPENING OFFER! Now John Spanos wants to put it on the 3rd Overall Pick because they initially offered a shitty deal that no Round 1 pick would have accepted? “I’m blown away,” Spanos said. “At all costs I wanted to avoid going down this road. They made it overly clear we had no other option. . . . It’s absolutely asinine. He would have gotten more cash in this calendar year than anyone except Carson Wentz.”
Really John? “At all costs” you “wanted to avoid going down this road”? Why would you open with a shitty lowball offer?
And now, you’ve fucked any goodwill for a new stadium that this pick might have generated. You have alienated a potential pro-bowler who will most likely never re-sign with San Diego because of Chargers ownership. The odds of us picking in the Top 10 next year are decent and now there is a an actual stigma in regard to Top NFL picks signing with the Chargers. I think it is a foregone conclusion that we will see future top picks decline to be drafted by the Chargers just Eli Manning did.
San Diego has hated Eli Manning a long time because of that stunt but San Diego should redirect that ire towards ownership since the Mannings obviously knew more than we did. Eli has 2 rings and the Chargers still have none… as in ZERO CHAMPIONSHIPS. The Chargers are not a winning organization and cannot point to any team policies as winning ways since they have nothing to show for it. Maybe they should sign their top players like other organizations do?
