Leaf is a loser. So is Archie. So is Spanos. Spanos just happens to be the one who lost us.
In Retrospect, the Spanos could never create a culture of family and professionalism.

I sat on a cross country flight next to a mountain of a man. As we talked it came out that he had played for the Chargers under Spanos then the Browns. He said in comparison, the Browns were a family, once a brown always a Brown. Now this is hearsay of course, but I think folks like Weddle, and even Tomlinson (before working for the Spani again) made comments that made me think of the conversation.

I know others have talked about this, most recently that I saw it was HOF. It would be great to have a sit down with someone like Harrison, Weddle, or even someone who was on the inside like Bill Johnson and get their views off the record... But that is ESPN level access...

Great info. You can sense that was merely reports, contracts, coaches, it's a Spanni cloud of
A lack of connection, with players, with fans. Gates gone, Rivers gone, and they just do press releases. If not for NFL monopoly money, they'd be ignored, avoided.

Leaf remains an asshole. Blaming ANYONE but himself is a cop out.

This is like Warren using sexism as the reason she had to drop out.
You mean like Chris Warren, the longtime Seattle running back. He dropped out the League a long time ago. Good for him.

If you want to know the difference between a top notch professional organization and
how the Spanni boy circus operates, watch the video below.
LA Kings thank three former players WHO WERE TRADED.
Anyone recall a thank you Rodney Harrison day? Spanni stink. Always have, always will.

The Charger virus spreads to the Rams.

Fans not happy.

when teams are crappy they start making new logos LOL. The Pack have had the same logo for years. That Rams logo DOES suck but not near as bad as the chugs stupid early attempt that failed. maybe the virus has mutated into a less lethal form LOL

Patsies, Donkeys, and the Tampa Bay Fuck'n'Steers all changed their logos and suddenly became champions. While the pre-championship Donkey and Tampa colors were awful, the replacements for all three teams all resemble a clogged toilet after a frat party. Apparently going with shit/piss/puke colors and what looks like an aborted Klingon fetus as your new logo will score you big points with the NFL fixers.

On the other hand, the Browns have had zero logos on their helmets since before Harry was born and haven't won shit since Otto Graham.

They don't really have a logo to put on the unis.
Also get ready to buy new gear in 2020.

Yeah, all the Rams fans are complaining that it looks too much like a Chuggers logo (which it does).
View attachment 7255

It looks dumb. Ps. Why doesn't this Forum have a logo?
I suggest we use the Boston Red Sox (1950-1959) logo.

Now this Red Sox logo was only used as an alternate, however it is still good... Used throughout the 50s this strange looking sock baseballer appropriately represented what was a struggling Boston side in that decade. Now there are plenty of theories discussing what the logo actually looks like, with male genitalia being one of the leaders, but we'll leave that up to you.

The Rams and Chargers used to have the best unis in the league when they both looked like each other - yellow and blue with a giant, fast, powerful bespectacled running back. Then along came the Spanoses and Georgia Frontiere, pretty much the worst owners ever. The teams sucked before those owners, but at least the uniforms used to look cool.

Two comments regarding NFL tracking the corona virus and future events.

If the virus goes into the fall, the TV rating will go through the roof as few will attend games in a crowded stadium environment. Actually they’ll be no perceived difference in LA Charger game attendance. No fans anyway.

At least no Charger fans. The stadium is filled with fans of whoever the Chargers’ opponent is.

With the NCAA now saying the basketball tournaments will be held without spectators,
any man or woman who can sell both a seat and a license to get that seat in a 70,000
fans in one place Inglewood Stadium.......deserves a raise. And should run for office.

The CDC has issued a statement: From now on, when it is advised that you self quarantine, that means you should attend an L.A. Chargers fan convention. At this time, the nation knows of no event or location with a smaller population density.

Let's hope they have to suspend the NFL season for the inaugural SoFi year. FUDEAN.
