Did Antonio Gates Just Call Vincent Jackson A Prima Donna?


Antonio Gates stepped up to the podium on the first full day of training camp and says “This team has definitely gotten rid of all the prima donnas. (CBS Chargers Rapid Reports)” I don’t think he was talking about Kris Dielman.

Steve Gregory? … Travis LaBoy? … Bryan Walters? …. Billy Volek? …. Luis Castillo?

Maybe it was Mike Tolbert he was talking about. He does do that little dance in the end zone and steals all the touchdowns!

OR maybe he was talking about the guy that attempted to sit out the 2010 season with a contract dispute. The same guy that ended up signing a $55 million contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Interesting statement from Gates. Who was he talking about?

      What is it going to hurt? Jackson is on the other coast and it’s not like Gates couldn’t pound him to paste if he got upset.

        now that should be the next main event at vegas!!! is he sure that all the prima donnas are gone though? Shaun Phillips is still on the roster

    Travis LaBoy, it has to be him who Gates was talking about! There’s no doubt in my mind about it. Vincent Jackson?, no way! Wouldn’t thought of it in a million years, why he’s as humble as apple pie.
