    I keep hearing the term......Norv is a puppet for AJ Smith. Please explain why you can say this. :yes:
    Explain it in terms that I can understand, including big words. :icon_rofl:

    I don't want opinions, I want facts! (Counts you out, B4L)

    Don't sing it.......Bring it! If you can.:tup:

    What exactly would you consider facts?
    An article of Norv saying "I am AJ's puppet?" A you tube of AJ saying "Norv is my puppet?"


    How about this... you find an article (real, not photoshoped) of Norv saying "I and not a puppet" or AJ saying "Norv is not my puppet" and that will take care of everything.

    Stop being lazy and telling everybody to research for you.

    Please tell us all who this phantom duo is that you keep preaching to us is. I know you only want to go to the Super Bowl. I want to know if they can really win San Diego the Lombardi in their first year that you insist they can.

    I think his point is that folks are saying that many are saying that Norv is AJ's puppet. If you are going to make that claim then like he said.....back it up. He isn't making the claim that Norv isn't. He is just asking for proof that Norv is. :icon_shrug:

    That's some pretty fallacious reasoning. If you say something you have to back it up. You're the one being lazy. What do you think a judge would say if you told him to find his own proof that you did something if you were on trial

    First off, what does that have to do with the topic of this thread?

    Second, I gave you an answer in other threads. No need to repeat myself.

    People can say it cause it's a free country. If you don't understand it, that's your problem.

    A judge wouldn't ask about he said/she said crap. He would just look at the way the organization has been over the past 6 seasons and realize that Norv is AJ's puppet.

    As for everything else... I'm not going to take the time to ask Chargers fans and NFL fans if they feel this way. I know most of them do. Go ahead and start a poll but realize that this forum is a tiny minority!!!
    There's what... 3,000 members? Well 70,000 attended Sunday's game and when you include those watching on TV... you'll get over a million.

    I know these things cause I've attended every home game and a few away games under the Norv era and the people at those games never have anything nice to say about Norv.
    Even posters in here. Some who claim they're OK with Norv in here, speak differently in person.

    Oh... How's this for proof? Why is it that through all 3 seasons (07-09), the home crowd began chanting "MARTY!!!" at several games? Remember, that's up to 70,000 people. And you can bet there were people watching those games on TV feeling the same way. In which this forum barley makes a grain of salt in that percentage!!!

    Most posters here were either at those games or watching them on TV. So you know it happened. So there you have it!!!

    SLAMMED!!!

    B4L. A judge wouldn't bother with "he said/she said crap" because it isn't proof. It is YOUR JOB to enforce YOUR idea that norv is AJs puppet. I'm not going to put the pieces together myself because I'd you can't prove it, it's not trueAnd because Marty was a fan favorite doesn't mean that norv is AJs puppet. AGAIN more fallacios reasoning. Just because the majority agrees with something doesn't make it true. Does that mean that in north America that everyone who isn't a christian's religion is wrong(I'm atheis btw just an example)

    As boltsnow said "I think his point is that folks are saying that many are saying that Norv is AJ's puppet." So your got you answer!!!

    They weren't screaming "Norv is AJ's puppet" but they were expressing disapproval in Norv's coaching abilities.
    You wanted fact, you got it... and remember, that's up to 70,000 people. And you can bet there were people watching those games on TV feeling the same way. In which this forum barley makes a grain of salt in that percentage!!!

    SLAMMED!!!

    How does disapproving of norvs coaching equate to Him being AJs puppet?

    You don't know what they were saying beyond they liked Marty. I'm still waiting for an explanation as to how this makes him a puppet. You're just focusing on irrelevant details. You haven't even touched on the question so how is the concept slammed? Prove to me that either norv is Ajs puppet or that Marty being a fan favorite is somehow relevant to norv being a puppet.

    I understand your twist... "he didn't say he was a horrible coach, he said he was a really, really bad coach."

    Well you guys can do the twist and shout all day and all night but there in no more reason for this thread.

    Later.

    What, so people were chanting when things weren't going their way and that is your proof? Funny, I don't remember any recent chanting for Marty in quite some time. People are drunk and go with their emotions at the time. I can bet anything that those same people that were chanting Marty have no problem with Norv (until something doesn't go their way). I'm not afraid to admit it.....I was one of those chanting for Marty when times were tough with Norv. But Norv is the HC now and I am fine with that. Where MArty failed Norv excels and where Norv has failed Marty excelled. It's all give and take. In the end I am happy with whomever we have.

    So I guess if you were married and your wife doesn't fold your clothes quite right or burns your toast every now and then do you look for a new wife because the existing one isn't disciplined enough to get things right? Or maybe you're the problem because you can't keep her in check. ( all figuratively speaking of course). :popcorn:

    Not quite spanky. I said bet, meaning if I am wrong (which means prove me wrong) then I would lose that bet. You make blanket statements and claim them to be fact. Iam not doing that.

    Balls in your court.

    Just face it... they were chanting "Marty" cause they don't like their current head coach.

    When Rivers throws an interception, you don't hear the crowd chanting "Brees!!!" Why? Because they like their current QB!!!


    SLAMMED AGAIN!!!

    Cards on the table time...

    ...its very hard to prove such a thing as NO organisation is going to allow a truth like that to be made public, for fear of a fan backlash!

    But if you look at the situation with wide, open eyes and heart...maybe you will see the truth...maybe you wont...maybe it IS a matter of perspective...maybe admiration for Norv or AJ ensures that you cannot compute the possibility that this situation could happen...I don't know!

    But IMO...I believe that Norv was desperate to have another shot at the Head coaching position and prove that he is not a head-coaching failure...AJ was looking for someone get on board with him and not question his authority or methods (see marty V AJ...this is well documented!)..hence the term I used...Puppet!
