    Which "Late" show are you talking about? There are about 3 or 4 with the word "Late" in their title.

    EDIT:

    Are you sure it was Gates? He's not listed on any shows tonight..

    I'm guessing it's the one on CBS after Letterman. It hasn't aired yet on the west coast.

    Yeah, I just saw it on the Craig Ferguson show following Letterman.

    It's a comedy skit he does before bringing out the scheduled guests, so Gates was supposed to say "turn it off" when the Chargers song played.

    When they also mentioned that the Bolts beat the Raiders, they asked if the Chargers actually played any Pro teams. :lol:

    You do know it was a comedy skit and he was reading off a cue card right?

    Don't matter. You don't disrespect your team's history for a stupid comedy skit. :tdown:

    Well, considering that half the Charger fans don't like the 70's song, and about 25% of them like that TIMZ rap version.... :unsure:

    I don't even think Gates was born when that song was made.

    Good thing Gates is one of the best Tight Ends in the league, or I'd be pissed right now. Dude needs to learn to respect his teams history! That is the BEST sports theme song ever!

    Aww come on thump. It wasn't that bad. Hey at least we know now that if things get really bad regarding injuries we can always charge up some robots and suit them up.

    This was an obvious satire skit...He did fine and didn't disrespect anything...I like him. :bolt: The team probably laughed and thought it was kinda funny..."do you actually play any professional teams" Raiders comment...it's just "dumb" late night humor. I don't see the controversy at all. :icon_wink: He seems like a good sport to me.

    It is an awful song. Anyone that didn't find the humor needs to lighten up.

    Yeah, it was not very funny, but that's not Antonio's fault.

    Word that. We will never let go of that theme song. I remember Eric Sievers used to sing it during practice whenever he made a sweet catch after he left the team.

    The Houston Oiler song was probably the best known but the Bolt song rules. Good it is getting a little national pub.

    that song is f'n gay anyway...yes it is a part of the team history but so is a 1-15 season. should the kid relish and respect that too?
    take off your platform shoes and button up your shirt and realize it 'aint saturday night fever anymore. that song blows and is an embarrasment.
    the one and only thing i like about the raider organization is their theme song, now that's a football song.

    Singing the song with a few hundred Bolt fans in SF this year was pretty cool, but part of the reason it was great is how lame the song was. We all knew it was lame but we sung it anyway. :lol:
