It is interesting how local mainstream media is applying pressure on Joey Bosa in a number of ways to sign a deal that is unprecedented for a #3 overall draft pick in the new era of the CBA. The Chargers are the absolute worst when it comes to negotiating contracts which is why all of their top-tier talent leaves and we have no championships to show for it here in San Diego. The “Eli Manning Effect” is now an actual thing and it will happen to the Chargers again which they have virtually guaranteed with their indefensible negotiating position taken with the #3 Overall Pick in the NFL Draft. These are known as “unintended consequences” and you know in your heart that it will come at a time when we desperately need that pick!
Everyone from LT to Gates have told Bosa he should report to camp but they were holdouts just like him… and may have an ulterior motive for violating the #1 rule and talking about another player’s contract situation.
“On the surface, it’s not a shock that Tomlinson is taking a subtle pro-team position on this. After all, he currently works for the NFL and, necessarily, each of its 32 teams. At what point, however, does it become relevant for folks like Tomlinson and Antonio Gates to mention that they once had to hold out to get what they wanted from the team, along with plenty of other current and former Chargers — from Drew Brees toPhilip Rivers to Quentin Jammer to Shawne Merriman to Antonio Cromartie toVincent Jackson to Marcus McNeil to Corey Liuget to Eric Weddle and more.” – PFT
Let’s be honest about this. Dean Spanos is a cheap prick who knows absolute dick about football. He is the reason this team has sucked for as long as it has. He could’ve told Marty and AJ to man up and work together like his father would’ve done but he’s a total pussy. He could’ve realized a long time ago that coaches are more valuable than GM’s. He is not smart enough to identify these things and probably has no fucking clue why he should change his franchise’s losing ways. Seriously, what has the Chargers hard-nosed negotiating stance achieved for them or this city? Exactly… not a goddamned thing. SPANOS IS CHEAP! PERIOD!
Let’s not forget that this asshole spent Bosa’s signing bonus on a toxic land dump in Carson 100 miles north of here. For some reason Chargers fans forget this and it happened 6 months ago. We might possibly have the lowest NFL IQ of all fanbases here in San Diego. Fans around the country empathize with Bosa and San Diego for not signing this guy but Bolt Nation is calling this guy a pussy instead of calling out Spanos for being a Cheap Fuck. SMH
Lot’s of talk regarding Vincent Jackson… again! This is getting to be a lot like the Kardashian bullshit that San Diegans despise when it comes to our sports teams. At least he’s not bringing it on himself like Shawne Merriman did. That being said, this is getting really old. The Chargers have seriously blown it the past two years by jerking their players around and failing to sign impact free agents. Much like the Padres, the Chargers have been acquiring 2nd tier free agents or players past their prime, albeit serviceable at times, but not in the same category as a Julius Peppers. The Chargers need help with pass rush… LOTS OF HELP! I think the monks down in Tibet know that the Chargers pass rush has been a joke since Merriman stopped being a factor.
So here we are a few weeks from the free agency deadline of March 15th. The Chargers kept the Dynamic Duodenum and hinted heavily that they would be players in free agency to offset the anger towards the franchise for keeping Norv & AJ. I’m a born and raised San Diegan and actually think that could make a difference, but I’m a born and raised San Diegan and KNOW that it won’t make a difference.
So keep Jackson or let him go, the Chargers will still come out unprepared to start the game and won’t wake up until the 4th quarter so long as Norv is the coach. AJ is still the manager who did okay for a while, but doesn’t change the fact that he’s been a pompous ass since he’s been here… and is back out there saying he doesn’t like other team’s free agents and he’s interested in signing ours. Good job on Sproles with that philosophy… whatever, its not like the Bolts used him correctly regardless.
This thing has become a shit show and is pretty frustrating. Let’s just hope the Bolts sign some good players and don’t totally eviscerate themselves… AGAIN!
PS. Sign VJAX to a big deal please bc he’s a prima donna and will dog it if he doesn’t get it… That or let him go, but don’t franchise him again please… he’s a bitch!
Can someone tell me why we didn’t pay our players?
This is our Chargers owner:
“Officials say the hardest to handicap are athletes, because they are accustomed to competition and often have golf games that can improve dramatically with a week of intense play and practice.
This was the excuse given by nonathlete Dean Spanos of Stockton, Calif:, (the son of Alex Spanos, owner of the San Diego Chargers football team) when he won the Crosby for the second time in 1990, the same year he won the pro-am portion of the Bob Hope Desert Classic. There were mutterings and complaints, but Spanos maintained that his 11-handicap was genuine and that he had just practiced a lot. Spanos kept his title but has not been invited back.” Read Full Story
