After AJ Smith’s apparent mockery of LT’s statement, the Chargers GM is offering a mea culpa of sorts.
“It was important to me that L.T. know exactly what happened.”
“I just answered a question and unfortunately my response was inappropriate.”
“After reading my response to the question, I can see why it was interpreted the way it was.
“I absolutely meant no disrespect toward L.T… none. I have the utmost respect for him on two fronts, as a player and as a person.”
Saying all the right things. Looks like there are no hard feeling. But look what the Chargers.com report goes on to say…
Admittedly, Smith was hurt by some the comments made by the local and national media. Though stung by the reaction, Smith was comforted by those who know him best.
“Dean Spanos and many members of our front office and coaching staff know exactly how I feel about L.T., and that is what has gotten me through this difficult time.
Wait… what? This difficult time? Smith was hurt by some of the responses made by the media after he publicly ridiculed his star running back? Yeah, I’ll send you a box of tissues for your tears, Chet.
Both are playing nice and don’t want to look like the bad guy if L.T. leaves town. But now we’re going to play ‘victim’ too? The soap opera continues.
