Anonymous Sources Hate the Chargers

Who are these anonymous sources?!?! On Pro Football Talk this weekend, an “anonymous source” ripped on Ladainian Tomlinson and his character:

“That’s why the Chargers could never win the big one. L.T. was selfish and a selfish leader.   They had all the talent in the world and should have beaten the Patriots [in 2006], but they couldn’t do it because they had too many guys like L.T. and he was the ringleader. LaDanian was a great player, but he was never a champion and he never behaved like one” – Pro Football Talk

Do you guys remember last season when an  ”anonymous source” ripped on Antonio Gates?

“It’s harsh to say, but he looks old and fat. He’s not beating people. We don’t have any speed, we’re soft on defense, and we put so much on our quarterback. When he was playing great, we could kind of get away with it. Now he’s not playing very well, and it’s all falling apart.” – Yahoo

When will I be able to start using anonymous sources? My anonymous source said this:

Nate Kaeding was paid off to miss the playoff field goals. – anonymous source

Fine!!! I will share my source! It is my dog ROXY, and I really don’t understand dog and she really hates Nate…. at least I think. How can we trust these anonymources sources? I will just assume that those opinions are from Mike Florio and he will just hide behind the anonymous source label.

What does your anonymous source say?

    When I read this on NBC it ticked me off.  Put your name on this.  If you are a grown man, reach down, grab your pair and own your statement.  Otherwise, hold it to yourself!

    You named your dog Roxy?! LOL

    I dunno.  All I can say was that I felt sorry for him in 2004 and 2006.  He got screwed by bad play calling in 2004 and Schottenheimer panicking in 2006.  I remember how upset he looked in 2006 as he saw victory slip away.  I don’t know what else he could have done those two years.  As bad as 2004 was, 2006 was even more painful as our guys pushed and shoved the Patriots around for 3 quarters.  Rivers’ inexperience showed but Schottenheimer’s inferior coaching was the deciding factor.  He was schooled big time.

    Whoever these “anonymous sources” are, whether it be former teammates or what, they’re simply chicken *bleep* for hiding their name. If they don’t want to be a man and reveal themselves, they’ll eventually be exposed as frauds.

    Put your damn name on it! Why say it if you can’t stand behind it. Pathetic.

  • sdchargerzfan

    Its infuriating. If you’re going to make strong statements such as this let people know who you are. They’re just running their trap saying BS b/c they hate the chargers.

    • sdchargerzfan

      * lash out

  • MikeTuck

    I’ve made some negative remarks about LT and some of the other players but sign your name Mr. Anomynous. Your courage is why people laugh at statements like that. If you want to be taken seriously sign.

    • RMainwaring

       @MikeTuck Cowards hide behind the “anonymous” word.

  • markrojas

    Haters gonna hate,
    I love LT regardless, I even made this infograph: http://markrojas2.blogspot.com/2012/07/ladainian-tomlinsons-career-infographic.html

  • PeteSpinning1

    So ridiculous. LT was very much NOT the reason we didn’t win a superbowl. Parker, Florence, and McCree handled that all by themselves.. hahaha! These are probably just East Coast haters, hating for the sake of hating. It’s not enough that east coast teams get 99.9% of the attention, analysis, and coverage (even the bad ones)… but, they have to put down the west coast CONSTANTLY… even a clear-cut HOF’er with TONS of class! Unless you are the 49ers, you will get no love out here. I’m surprised if the Bolts get an honorable mention on ANY football shows or sites, personally. You have to remember that the East Coast is the center of the universe.
