“Good NFL Town” vs. “Bad NFL Town”

Easy Arash… “People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”

I’ll be honest… I used to like Arash Markazi’s reporting but he’s obviously pushing an NFL agenda with his reporting lately and it is just bad for journalism.  I do finance for a living and I crunch numbers.  So when paid hacks start tossing insults my city’s way without any research; I like to pull out the simplest of statistics…. especially for the slow ones.  If they work for the @NFL then they are probably slow which means we should just use really simple apples to apples numbers.  Let’s compare home attendance for Pittsburg and San Diego just for shits and giggles because Pittsburgh is such a grrrrreat football town grrrr and San Diego is just a bunch of fair weather beach-goers bro.

The numbers don’t lie.  Even though Steeltown has had a way better team more consistently and San Diego has had to deal with the shittiest owners in the league and banana-peal shenanigans year in and year out; San Diego has sent 1,238,837 more fans through the turnstiles than the 6 Time Champions Pittsburgh Steeler Franchise in the past 12 years.  I could go back further but that would be really embarrassing for the NFL and Pittsburgh and this says enough.  BTW – No offense Pittsburgh; I respect the heck out of you… well I did before I crunched these numbers… Jesus; your moves are weak! I take that back… you’re shitty, fair-weather fans. Your football street-cred is officially revoked.

To be honest, San Diego was pretty consistently awesome in supporting the San Diego Chargers despite the Spanos dysfunction.  They’ve insulted our icons(Seau, LT, Brees, etc.), they’ve refused to pay our best players or rookies(Harrison, Brees, Rivers, Bosa, Merrimen, etc.), and the Spanos Family refused the tax payer funded stadium we offered to build them in Mission Valley last year(2016) because they wanted it downtown.  If the rest of the country knew that the NFL ripped our team after we offered to build them a stadium in Mission Valley but Dean didn’t like the location; there would be national outrage.  The NFL has spent millions on keeping that quiet and trying to control the narrative.  I bet the NFL’s leash gets a lot shorter with Deano when the bean-counters start crunching numbers.

Unfortunately for the NFL, they chose the wrong fan-base to bad mouth.  San Diegans don’t like that shit.  If you’ve never been to San Diego listen up…  “Slow down, shut up, respect the locals, and leave quietly.”  It is that simple… Dean Spanos chose poorly and so did the NFL and now they are reaping the whirlwind of karma.  They could’ve left quietly but they chose to kick the fans while we were down.  You want to take a crack at our politicians; fine… but you insulted San Diego Fans @NFL… you insulted one of your oldest and most loyal fan bases.  Ya done fucked up! This is going to be a season-long dumpster fire the likes of which the league has never seen.

As you can see below; even the guy who was paid to throw San Diego under the bus doesn’t actually believe it.  The national media is fucking weak-sauce!  What happened to honest journalism?  Fuck you National Media Dicks!

 

So much for Mr. Footbawl!


Welp, this guy is gone finally.  Did a lot with a little but the team’s offensive play calling prior to this year was maddening.  Spanos gets most of the blame for LA and roster Bullshit.  I say stick with a Mike and get Mr. Smith out here… it’ll be easier on the players to get a coach with the same first name. 😉

Spanos is Synonymous with #EPICFAIL


The fact that this unprecedented hold out in the new era of the renegotiated CBA is still going on is an absolute embarrassment to the #NFL(1) and the #Chargers(2).  This bullshit situation going on with Joey Bosa happens EVERY TIME when the Chargers have to deal with actual talent.  What’s worse is that Chargers’ fans are woefully misinformed about this and think Bosa is being unreasonable or greedy or a “Diva” which is just not the case.

Dean Spanos and clan spent $20,0000,000 on a toxic dump in Carson to try and rip our team away from us and now he won’t pay or can’t pay the #3 pick what he is due based on what lower picks have already received.  The Chargers have zero negotiating room and have lost in the media and the court of public opinion in a year when it has never been more critical as they want a new stadium built.

Bosa is arguing that he wants his bonus upfront rather that 60 percent now and 40 percent next year. 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. What he is asking for is not outrageous by any means, it’s actually the standard. As far as saying he hasn’t played a down and he has to prove himself, he proved himself well enough in college to make it to 3rd overall pick by the Chargers, and 1st defensive pick of the draft, therefore he was worth the money in the GM’s mind. Management is just afraid to pick up the phone and discuss with Bosa and his agent because they think it looks weak.
