Bosa Holdout is Finally Over!


IMG_0069

That had to have been one of the worst Chargers’ moves ever!  They opened negotiations at 60% and then dragged their feet to come correct.  They just came off looking petty and cheap in a year where they need an enormous amount of good will to convince 2/3 of San Diego voters to approve a ballot initiative that will increase taxes on hotel rooms by a measly 4%.  You might think taxing out-of-towners would be a no-brainer, but not in this city.  You’d be hard pressed to get a 2/3 vote on approving breathable air or drinkable water in this town.

Well, at least we signed our 1st Rounder in the 3rd overall pick of the NFL’s 2016 draft.  Let’s hope the Chargers picked right and this kid can play at the NFL level.  He seems serious and I’m a firm believer in the 3rd times a charm.  We’re about 2 weeks away from the first game so let’s hope that’s enough time to get up to speed and out on the field.

BREAKING NEWS: Chargers hire Facebook Spammers to Sway Opinions on Bosa!


The Chargers have apparently determined that it is cheaper to pay their employees to post on Facebook and hire Facebook spammers to sway public opinion in their favor than it is to just pay Bosa what he deserves based on his NFL draft slot.  The Chargers have stolen the playbook from SeaWorld

This commenter is obviously paid by SeaWorld

with this bogus move of trying to influence public opinion through public commenting.

It is not hard to identify the spammers as they post ridiculously simple slogans such as, “The Chargers organization handled it like a champ. Glad to see that the organization made the effort to reach a middle ground.” – Jimmy King When you review this guy’s profile, it is full of sparsely populated BS to make it seem real but obviously lacks legitimate personal info like 100’s of others we’ve looked at.  You can also tell because these people have no Chargers fan info before this year and live in other parts of the world.  They post stupid, nonsensical BS, that is about how great the Chargers are and pledge dysfunctional loyalty to an ownership group that San Diegans despise with a renewed passion since they tried to steal our team and take it to LA.

They are also having their employees post on Facebook as well, posing as fans!  This is CRAZY!  I assume this post about “class acts” was meant to be an insult to Bosa and the shitty news the Chargers are generating for themselves.  This fuckin’ guy works for the Charger Zone!

What the hell are The Chargers thinking!?  This is fucking embarrassing.  The Chargers have stolen the playbook from SeaWorld with this bogus move of trying to influence public opinion through public commenting.  It is sad and embarrassing.  You can either believe the shill posts on Facebook or go to real sports sites like PFT and read what REAL NFL FANS think of the Chargers!

 

 

The Chargers are Cheap… Period.

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?

BREAKING: Spanos Can’t Afford Bosa, Spent His Bonus on Carson Stadium Site


Occam’s Razor is a line of reasoning that says the simplest answer is often correct.

IMG_0069

“I’ll tell you what (they) paid for the land, it was $20 million,” Roggin said on the Scott and BR show. “The (Carson) mayor told me that. $20 million for 11 acres.” – Link

Say what you want but it is the only logical conclusion with league precedent set with all draft picks for 2016!  The 4th, 5th, 6th, AND 7th pick of the draft all receive way more than 50 percent of their bonus upfront. And every single 3rd overall pick since the CBA setting rookie contracts, has received EITHER 100 percent of the bonus upfront or, most of their bonus upfront and the off set language taken out.

The fact that the Chargers have lost this negotiation has not set in yet.  Perhaps the realization that an #NFL investigation in to the Chargers’ organizational finances will make them perk up a bit which is undoubtedly coming if this does not get resolved soon.  The NFL created new ownership rules for team owner’s families specifically because Bud Adams left the Titans to his family that is not suited to run an NFL franchise.  It is a high probability that the  NFL will conduct an investigation in to one of it’s 32 franchises if they are the only team since the creation of the new CBA to not get a deal done in a timely manner.

There is only one logical explanation…. The Spanos Family ownership cannot afford Joey Bosa.

The other logical explanation is that the Spanos family is not logical which would explain the 38 years of pain inflicted on me by this fucking family and their inexplicable fucking decisions from keeping AJ over Marty to signing Larry Fucking English!  Fuck you Spanos!

LARRY FUCKING ENGLISH FUCKER!

Chargers are Dead-Ass Wrong in Bosa Impasse


shapeimage_3

The Bolts are giving themselves just enough rope to hang themselves and our stadium hopes.  The Chargers are fucking up their most important season ever and it hasn’t even begun! After 38 years in this city, I honestly wonder if the Chargers will ever do anything right or contend for another Super Bowl in my lifetime / in this city.  They were so bad last year, they got the #3 overall pick.  Awesome right? Not really… If you’re a true Bolts fan, then you knew this was coming.  They did it with Rivers last time they drafted in the top 5.  They did it with Tomlinson who missed most of his Rookie camp in 2001.  They suspended Antonio Gates for 1 game in 2005 where we lost that home opener by 4 in a home game the Chargers were favored to win and ended up missing the playoffs by 1 game that year.  They did it to VJAX also which cost us the playoffs in 2011.

DO YOU REALIZE HOW STUPID THIS IS?

“On the surface, there’s little to discuss. Relying on team precedent, the Chargers remain dug in on the position that Bosa’s contract must include offset language and defer a major chunk of the signing bonus into 2017. Relying on precedent as to the top picks in the draft since 2012, Bosa’s camp wants either no offset language on the guarantee or full payment of the signing bonus in 2016.” – PFT 

So the Chargers have made this BFD(Big Fucking Deal) over the offset language bullshit but Bosa has been willing to accept that IF the Chargers pay the kid all of the money he’s due instead of breaking it up in two payments separated by 9 months.  This has got to be the worst fucking decision the Chargers have made since announcing their alliance with the Raiders to move out of America’s Finest City.

SPANOS FAMILY – WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING?  Figure it the fuck out!  Stop putting on your “Bad Idea Pants” everyday and pay the kid like every other NFL team has done already you dumbasses!  GAWD, you’re awful!

Can’t we all just get along!  Just pay the kid so he can play football and help this team you jerks!

Petition to bring back Scott & BR!


Change.org has helped many causes, both small and large.  Scott & BR are Great Friends, San Diego staples, and part of our community.  They bring sanity to insane Chargers seasons year after year.  They organized countless charity events and spoke the truth.

Sign the petition and help get them back on the air!

Phil Simms weighed in on the Chargers during Scott & BR today


Listen to the Audio from Scott & BR on XX1090

If you’re not familiar with Scott & BR, they are on XX1090 from 5AM-9AM.  They’re fun to listen to but they also have great connections and get really interesting interviews on a regular basis from people like Jim Nance, Phil Simms, and Mark Schlereth.  They own a horse with Drew Brees and he’s on quite a bit because they are friends and are all part of the ownership group, “Great Friends”.  Anyways, this is a sweet interview from a national voice giving the Chargers their due and tempering his expectations because he realizes there are several tough games coming  up.  Cincinnati and Tennessee… both have two n’s back to back and we’re playing them back to back.  Weird.
