    ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME!?! THIS HAS TO RUN NORV OUT THIS YEAR

    The San Diego Chargers are being investigated for what is potentially one of the most unsuccessful attempts at breaking the rules in NFL history.
    One simple half of football defined the future for an entire AFC division. Adam Schein explains how it will all go down. More ...
    FOX Sports insider and NFL Network contributor Jay Glazer reports the Chargers were caught using an illegal "Stick em-type" substance versus the Denver Broncos on Monday night.
    Glazer reports that the NFL had already started an investigation before Monday night. A Chargers equipment man was reportedly seen hiding the illegal sticky substance and giving to players. A line judge saw it and had it confiscated and sent to the Broncos and the league.
    The Chargers blew a 24-0 lead on Monday night against the Broncos, losing 35-24.

    And if we fire Norv the WRs who can't catch the ball while cheating will suddenly be great!

    Are you.... I can't even say it. I despise cheating. If this is true, I want... I don't even know what I want. Norv should be held accountable. This is yet ANOTHER example of this organization being a clown outfit. Un freaking believable.

    PISSED.

    Chargers facing sanctions for illegal use of stickum
    Posted by Mike Florio on October 21, 2012, 12:28 PM EDT

    As one cheating scandal lingers, another one has emerged.

    Jay Glazer of FOX reports that the Chargers are facing stiff punishment after officials confiscated during Monday night’s game against the Broncos a towel that contained a substance that has been banned by the NFL for decades: Stickum.

    Per Glazer, an equipment manager brought the towel onto the field during a timeout. Something caught the attention of one of the officials, one thing led to another, and now the Chargers face a large fine and possibly the loss of one or more draft picks for cheating.

    It remains to be seen who knew what and when and how many were involved, but the smartest move for anyone questioned by the league will be to tell the truth.

    Stickum, once a popular substance that was used liberally by players like Raiders receiver Fred Biletnikoff and cornerback Lester Hayes, provides a competitive advantage by helping a guy catch the football. Or, perhaps more accurately for all too many NFL receivers, not drop it.

    If you're going to cheat and get caught you should at least win. At least they tried.

    For the equipment manager, maybe. It still won't get Norv fired any sooner.

    I mean for God's sake, how many malpractice suits (for the dumbest things imaginable by a surgeon to boot) has David Chao had successfully filed against him (I consider the ones where he feels obligated to settle out of court to be successful - as I figure you as an attorney would as well if you were the one filing the suit) and yet he's still employed as our team doctor? And that's ignoring the absorbent amount of injuries we have every season or failed diagnoses on players with chronic injury histories.

    Face it, Dean and the rest of the Spanos' just aren't keen on kicking people to the curb.

    Hey, if they were cheating they were at least trying to win, right? Just failing miserably at it.

    we are missing an oppurtunity here to laugh about all this.

    Right now I am still learning how to Photoshop

    Using the Dos Equis guy the sign can say

    I dont always cheat, But when I do I use Elmers glue


    And replace the the bottle of Dos Equis with a bottle of Elmers Glue ( OR any other sticky substance)

    It shows me someone was concerned enough to resort to cheating, it didn't work but they tried. Anyone who tries to tell me they have never resorted to trying to gain an edge in life, I'll show you a liar.
