So you’re telling me there’s a chance?!?


Let me start by saying I have no idea if there is a chance, so to speak.  Please be patient and read the entire article

Most of us have all seen the movie “Dumb and Dumber.”  I’m assuming that ALL Raiders fans and, for that matter, most Broncos and Chiefs fans just so happen to live it out in their day to day lives.

There is a scene where actor Jim Carrey asks, the person that he believes to be, his love interest if she thinks there’s a chance that the two of them could “unite” in a mutual-feelings relationship….. She in turn replies, ” One in a million,” while making it plainly clear that the chances are, indeed, far less than even one in a million.

His retort, as hilarious as it classic, “So you’re telling me there’s a chance?!?”

The Chargers and LaDanian have decided to mutually agree that #21 will sign a one day contract and retire a Charger on Monday, June 18th.  Although I hoped that this would happen, there were no guarantees that it would.  I felt that it had to happen but that has nothing to do with the business of the NFL.

All that being said, my question becomes a more technically and rule based question.

With L.T. signing a one day contract, do the Chargers then place him on the reserve/retired list?  Do they then have exclusive signing rights to #21?

If they do, what would happen if we were to have one or, heaven forbid, two running backs go down due to injury?

Would the Bolts then be able to bring the phoenix that is L.T. out of retirement to rise from the ashes and give some Chargers fans exactly what it is that they have been crying for this offseason?

I truly have no idea.  I have spent a good part of the day trying to research this to find out the answer.  At this point, I have come up completely empty.

I will say this, in my opinion, there happens to be a lot of things that seem to give this season a “special” feeling or sense to it.

How special would it be to have L.T. in a Bolts uni when the Chargers are playing in the Superbowl this season?

We will most likely never find out.  But what if we did?

    @BoogaP just an FYI the saying is “So you’re telling me there’s a chance” haha no biggie, I’m just addicted 2 that movie.

    • BoogaP

      @sdchargerzfan Damn! Fixed. lmao! thx bro. Thats one of the many reasons my followers are the best! #BoltUp!!!

  • KeenanRickless

    I have a good question too. Will L.T. get a championship ring when we win this year because he was on the teams roster? Or will he have retired too soon?

    • BoogaP

       @KeenanRickless
       He’s not on the team’s roster. He is retiring as a Charger.  If he is placed on the reserve/retired list, and then, in emergency, signed to the active roster, then yes, he will earn and receive a ring.

       Apparently my years of watching it over and over again have passed!! lol. Been a while. Will watch it again soon! Good lookin out though bro!

  • RMainwaring

    This article by BoogaP has QUALITY substance and content. A great “what if” scenario that DOESN’T cross the fence to the side of absurd, unlike other writers on other websites do. You know who you are. It would be such a great PR move by the Chargers if L.T. were to actually don a powder blue, dark blue, or even a white jersey with lightning bolts on the sleeves one more time. Great article Mr. Peters aka BoogaP! Happy Father’s Day!

    • BoogaP

       @RMainwaring
       Thx buddy. Happy Father’s Day to you and every other Father that is a real father. Not to those that have kids but don’t “father” them. MAN UP!
       
      I just wish that I knew more about the ruling on a retired player that signs a one day contract to do so but isn’t placed on the retired/reserved list…..
       
       

      • RMainwaring

         @BoogaP I would like to know if the possibility to have LT play one more year was discussed or even a thought..

        • biggsybolt

          @RMainwaring @BoogaP LOL, It had to have been discussed or thought of seeing as AJ came out before the draft and said he will not bring back LT. It would have been a great pr move and as Booga has pointed out 100 times, sold tickets. I think Mathews could have learned a few things from him also.

  • BoogaP

    @r_mainwaring Whats gd bro!

    • r_mainwaring

      @BoogaP Just commenting on your article. Nice job buddy.

    I wish there was a chance!!!!!

  • tpowell619

    @r_mainwaring The body is done!Chargers have to move on try and get to Super Bowl next year.Team not ready yet

  • tpowell619

    @r_mainwaring thought you wrote it misunderstood.And the rules are the player can come out of retirement and play for whomever he wants.

    • BoogaP

      @tpowell619 @r_mainwaring I wrote it. And ur that guy who said “who cares” abt Junior passing away and @r_mainwaring story right? pathetic.

  • tedipe1

    This season does already have a special feeling to it. If LT were able to put the Chargers uniform on again & thrill us with the magic that is LT it would be even more special.

    • RMainwaring

       @tedipe1 I couldn’t agree more!!

  • Bolts_NFL_music

    Man that one day contract thing is a nice move – it´s cool he now can retire as a Charger. Man and that thought the Bolts maybe are able to bring LT out of retirement – ahhh this would be so damn awesome. Some kinda weird that we even consider the possibility of a LT comeback now…some days ago we all were sure this scenario would and could never happen. But the thought of it is just so great, that we should keep it alive even if the chances are less than one in a million.

  • nyMari

    @Bolts_NFL_music I think he has to file retirement papers with the NFL to make it official. Junior didn’t do that when he retired…right?

    • Bolts_NFL_music

      @nyMari Yeah, 1st #LT signs a one-day contract and then he´ll officially retire. As far as I know Junior didn´t do that, no

      • nyMari

        @Bolts_NFL_music I mean I know he will announce his retirement but I think papers need to be filed.

      • biggsybolt

        @Bolts_NFL_music @nyMari Jr did then came off the retired/reserved and went to NE

        • nyMari

          @biggsybolt @Bolts_NFL_music yea he was on the Retired/reserved list for the Bolts right? but NFL nvr got his papers.

        • biggsybolt

          @nyMari @Bolts_NFL_music not sure about the paper work, I just remember they had a press conference for him like they are doing for LT

  • biggsybolt

    If Jr could take himself off the reserved/retired list and go to New England and well for that matter Brett Farve did it 100 times I would assume it’s possible but would be up to LT and not the chargers. My guess is he would like to play for us again, but AJ has all the control there. Great article Booga!

    A chance? Slim and none. The sports writers have us at 8-8. One even has the Chiefs winning the division at 11-5. Another has the Raiders at 9-7. Perhaps  all the hoopla is just a smoke screen for A. J. to finally do the job of getting us to the AFC Championship game; anything less and
    this is just another year where we say “wait until next year” at the the end of the season.

       @1961 Fan
       As far as the “sports writers” are concerned, we are not even in the conversation. I like it, personally. Most power rankings have us in the lower 20s and have projected us to finish last in the division. I like that as well…. a lot. 
       
      Glad to see your comment.

       @1961 Fan Good comment pops. I remember before the 2004 season all the sports media had us finishing at the bottom of the division. I called the Ted Leitner show when it was on and predicted the Chargers would make it back to the playoffs that year. He asked me what I was smoking! Needless to say, the Chargers ended up finishing the season with a 12-4 record. Leitner ate crow that year and admitted it.  I have to admit, a one and done playoff game for us will be a huge disappointment.. I don’t want to “wait until next year”! 

  • RMainwaring

    Ladanian Tomlinson=Chargers future running backs? That would be cool!

  • RMainwaring

    If he ain’t gonna play anymore, how about being the Chargers running backs coach?

  • MikeTuck

    A chance that LT would be big enough to except because of his friends still there.

  • LymanVillaraza

    Even if he came out for 1 play, just one play, that would be epic. Can’t wait for the season to start!
