The Chargers Broke My Heart, And I am NOT Alone

September 2, 2017

Roughly nine months have passed since Dean Spanos made the decision to slither off to Los Angeles. This move was totally money driven, as the worth of his football club has increased.

Quarterback Tom Brady Brady is back. While it appeared the Patriots were in serious trouble to start the season, New England has actually found success in his absence.

Responses to Kaepernick’s Protest Miss the Point and Overlook Real Issues for Military Personnel

August 31, 2016

There are three certainties in life: death, taxes and people overreacting on social media. The backlash against San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was predictable, and the threats and racially-based trolling were not unexpected – though disappointing. Kaepernick’s decision to sit down during the pledge of allegiance drew the ire of veterans, opportunistic politicians and a host of people who cover the spectrum of polite dissidents to openly racist and…

The time has come to face the reality that Eric Weddle is not going to return to the San Diego Chargers for the 2016 season. He has made it quite clear that he has no intentions on returning to the team and will likely play elsewhere next season.
