The Chargers Are Nobody’s Team

If you haven’t read Michael Rosenberg’s article yet; you’ve gotta take a look!  HEre’s a sample… “Giving L.A. a second NFL team is like giving Miami a second snowplow. Nobody asked for it, nobody wants it and nobody knows what to do with it. Spanos has said publicly that he hopes San Diegans still support their Chargers and will drive the 120 miles to L.A. You might as well ask your first wife to pay your second wife’s car payments. San Diego has too much self-respect to do that.”

FUCK YOU DEAN SPANOS!

“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. 😉

Here’s a suggestion for Spanos: Just go


Dean Clown car

By Mark Zeigler at the SDUT: Repost because this is too good!

So now Dean Spanos says he’s closer to moving the Chargers to Los Angeles than staying in San Diego.

Here’s a one-finger, two-letter suggestion: Go.

Move. Do it. Dare you.

It’s all so predictable, the threats, the bullying, the crying wolf. We heard them at this time last year, as NFL owner meetings and ballot deadlines were approaching. We heard it earlier this month from national media, unidentified team “sources” whispering that the Chargers have never been closer to exercising their Jan. 15 option to join the Rams and Kroenke-world in L.A. Now Spanos lets it slip Sunday that “I’m waiting for the city of San Diego,” that if it somehow doesn’t act now, if it doesn’t cook up a plan that bleeds taxpayers of hundreds of millions of dollars for a new stadium so he can charge higher ticket prices and get even richer, if it doesn’t accede to his demands, he’s moving.

Scout’s honor. This time he means it.

So call his bluff. See if he’s really holding that pair of aces.

See if he’s really going to be the second team in a metropolis that hasn’t embraced the first. See if he’s really going to play for a few seasons in a 25,000-seat stadium and sacrifice all that ticket revenue. See if he’s really going to rent in someone else’s palace. See if he’s really going to cultivate a whole new fan base and sign new corporate sponsors and build a new training facility. See if one of the cheapest owners in the NFL is really going to pay the $550 million relocation fee? See if he’s really going to a place where he’ll have the third most popular NFL team (behind the Rams and Raiders) while competing for market share with two NBA, two Major League Baseball and two NHL franchises along with two major colleges.

Really?

Go. Move. Do it. Dare you.
