Chargers PR Tells Fans To Take A Chill Pill
By Ernie Padaon
So, I have this dog, Roxy, that hates doorbells. HATES THEM! Someone rings the doorbell and she will go ape SH** barking at the door. I also have this other dog, Kina, that doesn’t care too much for the doorbell, but will bark at Roxy because she is barking.
One day, both dogs are out chilling and someone rings the doorbell. Roxy launches to the door pissed out of her mind. Barking up a storm! Kina then gets to the door and barks once.Probably saying, “you are an idiot, it’s just someone visiting and not an evil door.”
That one bark pissed off Roxy even more and there was a full on Michael Vick dog fight in my living room. I had to pull them apart and got scratched up in the melee. I don’t know how Michael Vick did it!
Why was I saying this again?
Well, the Chargers PR guy did his best to try and calm down the angry mob of fans. In his attempt, he has now become the target.
Here is some of what he wrote to the fans on Chargers.com with the title “Take a Chill Pill”:
What’s with you people?
Yes, Monday night’s loss was bad. Horrible. Embarrassing.
Ok…enough already. No mas. I get it.
Now get over it. It was a loss. One loss.
Listening to some of you out there, you’d think Monday night was “win or go home” and the Chargers are now packing their bags.
“The Chargers are finished. Done,” said one scribe.
Another wrote, “Bye, bye Chargers. Put a fork in them.”
Sometimes I think Twitter was invented to give people a chance to puff out their chests and talk big, saying things they never would say to someone’s face.
And talk radio … don’t get me started. The old adage your mom used to preach – “If you don’t have anything good say, don’t say anything” – seems to have evolved to “if you don’t have anything good to say, call sports talk radio.”
Amazing stuff there. I could have told him how that would have went over with the fans. I have never called fans out, but we did once have a writer on here that decided to say that San Diego fans SUCKED and the team should move to Los Angeles because their fans are better. I won’t get into that argument, but the reaction from that one post was epic and I got heat for letting that get posted.
POST DELETED and that writer no longer is part of the team! Apologies sent to the angry mob that was created.
People invest their hard earned money into this team. We buy tickets to the game, sport the jerseys of our favorite players, rock out in overpriced t-shirts all for the love of that team. When the team sucks and we get angry, it is because we care! If you LOVE someone, you don’t let them do stupid things and let them ruin themselves.
That loss to Denver was one of the worst that any of us have ever seen. The stakes were high and we thought we were going to be able to show the world that we have arrived. The whole first half we beat down big bad Peyton Manning and his boys, then the ridiculousness happens. How do you expect us to react?
“Good game boys?”
