    The only thing that Dean Spanos looks at to determine if he likes the way the team looks is the BOTTOM LINE.

    Is the Organization turning a profit with a losing record?
    Is the Organization turning a profit with Norv Turner?
    Is the Organization turning a profit with AJ Smith?
    Is the Organization turning a profit with other fans in the stands?

    Yes, yes, yes, and yes.

    The last 2 games have been sellouts.

    Too bad it was the opposition buying all the seats.

    It is a fact. Profit is #1 and winning is #2. I have friends who work in the 2nd floor and being profitable is the most important. (Which it should be).

    Then what you're saying is that we need to boycot the home games to get Dean's attention?

    Unfortunately, that will just push the team out of town. So the fans are stuck

    No not at all. Fans will do what they want to do. Dean will take a good look at the risk/reward to get rid of Norv/AJ.

    But in my tiny little brain, I sometimes think that Dean gave AJ and Norv those extensions as they will 'take the heat' while John Spanos is AJs assistant. Seems a little strange with Rivers throwing those 2 INTS right on que. Almost as if Dean is trying to alienate the Fans so the Chargers can be moved to LA.

    I guess you know him personally and he's expressed this to you? Or maybe you were in the same room with him and overheard his conversation about all your points? Just curious about your sources.

    I worked for a builder that built the homes above Frys. Westport. Many of the Chargers players and front office peeps live there. Means, harrison, S Turner, Jenkins, Fortin, L Bush, R McNeal, and the GM for the AZ became friends with many of them and still talk to them.

    You said you are a neurologist... Neurologists work for builders?

    Yes I am NOW a neurologist. At that time when the Bolts were 1-15 I worked for Richmond American Homes. I was doing my undergrad studies at Grossmont College. I now live in Portland transferring to Dallas.

    So you're saying all these guys gave you all this information? They all decided to tell a guy who worked for a builder that built the homes in their neighborhood. Some of the players you mention weren't even here with AJ and Norv running the show. A GM from another team? Come on, man, this just seems silly.
    Furthermore, what's wrong with a CEO trying to make money? Isn't that his job? As a matter of fact, isn't that what pretty much all businesses are trying to do? I'm sure he didn't become CEO to lose money. If they didn't make any money, that Charger wouldn't exist.

    The owner ship is the same and Norv was here. And yes, players don't like Norv. A particular player cringed at the hiring of Norv as it was Norv who drafted him and also cut him in Washington. This player had a good career. Majority of these peeps love talking about football. I always asked inside questions.

    Yes, as I stated above the #1 priority of Dean is to make a profit. And there is nothing wrong with that. I believe on profits that why I am not an 'occupier'
