Do San Diego’s Teams Want Any Fans At All?

First the Padres insulted the shit out of Trevor Hoffman, the all-time saves leader and rock upon which the franchise was built since 1993. Then Jake Peavy was nearly dealt as well. At the time, I thought these were horrible, but isolated incidents, since the Padres have historically always been run by fucktards. But now the fucktardedness has made its way from downtown San Diego up Interstate 15 to the Chargers’ team offices in Mission Valley because Chargers officials won’t deny that LaDainian Tomlinson is on the trading block. And star players usually love being in limbo.

I know, it doesn’t mean he’s definitely gone, but just like the Peavy fiasco, it’s only going to piss off their best player and every single, solitary fan. Shit, the Hoffman Incident is the reason I’m going to wear my “Hoffman 51” shirt/jersey all summer. Just a little “go fuck yourself, San Diego” from me to the Padres’ front office. If I go to a game, I might even stand up and turn my back to the field when the new closer comes in.

So no, LT isn’t gone. But the front office’s non-denial means they’re either thinking about it, or they’re just idiots. Seeing as how they hired Norv Turner AND want to keep him for another season, I’m leaning toward the latter.

I’ll just say this and I’ll be on my way back to reading this (a fantastic treatise on, among other things, the origins of the word “cunt”): listen, taint-sniffers, unless you want a crazed horde of fans showing up at team headquarters looking to re-enact a certain scene from American History X (note: not the basketball scene), I suggest you deny the shit out of this rumor, placate your still-in-his-prime, hall-of-fame running back, and worry about having a competent defense on the field this fall.

In truth, should LT ever be traded or released by the team, there won’t be an angry, torch-holding mob tearing at the gates. No, it will be much worse. The Chargers might just have to deal with the deafening silence of a one-third full stadium and an apathetic fan base. Remember the Mike Riley Era? That, only shittier.

Keep it up, guys. See what happens.

  2. If it weren’t for Phillips you would have to change the name of the blog to just “Rumors and”.

    I do agree about this and am surprised to hear it. You think he’s really just being slowed by injury or because of the high number of carries the last few years? I had him on my fantasy team so I know his stats are down but I can’t tell if it’s the beginning of the end or just a bad year.

  3. Don’t forget how horrible the Chargers’ line was this year too. The whole right side couldn’t block a memory, let alone the Steelers’ defense.

  5. I agree that they should have never let Hoffman go (even though he has 1…maybe 2 years left in him). And they shouldn’t let Peavy go…which it looks like they won’t because they can’t get anybody who wants to give up good players for him. But it is time to let Tomlinson go…he is still a good back, but he has been too injure-proned the last 2 years. They made a big mistake by letting Michael Turner go…they are now seeing what a beast he is. Hopefully, Sproles can take the wear and tear off of Tomlinson (if he isn’t traded).
