............................Just in case anyone is curious....Trumpet_Man said:If you are wondering how much Junior can be paid/gifted before it affects our cap. Here you go.
If a Club provides one or more gifts to a player during the term of the player’s Player Contract to commemorate the player’s retirement, and the player has been under contract with the Club in three or more seasons, the fair market value of such gifts up to $10,000 shall not be counted as Salary, and any excess fair market value above $15,000 shall be counted as Salary. If such gifts have a value between $10,000 and $15,000, the parties reserve their rights with respect to the treatment of the excess fair market value above $10,000; in the absence of agreement between the parties on such treatment, the Impartial Arbitrator shall decide. If the player has been under contract with the Club in less than three seasons, the entire fair market value of any such gifts shall be counted as Salary.
He said this while talking with some fellow Charger fans. He was asked what he was going to do be doing next and in the course of that conversation, he said that he'd sign on so he can retire as a Charger. Not really much more to it than that.Shamrock said:Hey Carlsbad -
Do you have a quote from Seau on this?
I'm not discounting the story, just like to know specifically what he said.
All the credit goes to our buddy Carlsbad. It's all us dedicated Charger fans that makes Bolt Talk tick. :thumbup:PostAnteaterCharger said:first meeting AJ Smith then breaking the Seau story
Man alive Ray's on a roll

Just remember where you heard it FIRST !!!! :yes:leisure said:I am beginning to think I need a linkie as I have yet to see this anywhere else but here. Lets hope it's true as I wanna give Charger Ray mega leisure props for breaking the story
I really hope this is happens! Junior is still "Mr. Charger" to me, and he deserves to retire, with Fanfare, a San Diego Charger.leisure said:I am beginning to think I need a linkie as I have yet to see this anywhere else but here.

WonderSlug said:Are they going to give him a little honor ceremony at the home opener versus Tennessee?
Oh, one home game I'd like to get to... I think SDC will be there too along with the forum regulars :yes:PostAnteaterCharger said:Very much so
Junior deserves to go out in style, in his hometown in front of the people that cheered him on for well over a decade.
And if not then then maybe the game that's the game they bring out the hall of famers?
Yeah, if he did, he'd lose all credibility and "love" in San Diego.PostAnteaterCharger said:the talks with the Raiders have not been heard from past that one article so I don't think he will don silver and black
Trumpet_Man said:Not to be a kill joy but Junior Seau had a lot of stuff swept under the rug. Stories were stifled in the papers about his personal life.
The media helped protect his darling image.
I do not respect Junior.
Google the stories about his paternity suits.
There is more but I will not post it out of respect. Come see me at a tailgater if you want to hear the rest. :yes:
