    I want all of you people that say that you will not be a Chargers fan if LT is released to step up. Please sign this thread. I need to know how many seats to sell on the bandwagon. :icon_tease:

    if anyone says they wouldnt be a fan they they are not a "Chargers" fan, i am a fan no matter who puts on the jersey, its funny how most sd fans get caught up in the player it self and not the team

    A disgruntled, irritated fan, but a fan none the less.

    I believe some will stop following the Chargers and follow LT IF he goes somewhere else, just as some Rivers followers will, but that is their choice, their right.

    Of course I will be a fan of the Chargers. What I am not a fan of is the way this organization treats its heros. It might be time to part ways with LT, just due to the salary cap, maybe age/injuries, but the way they have mis-handled this situation, along with Jr. and Rodney, etc is par for the course.

    If LT is released, and they draft a running back who can fill in, and help us win a championship, that'd be great. But it doesn't change, how they have treated the Greatest player to ever wear a Chargers jersey.

    Of course I would still be a fan - I will be very upset if LT is let go, angry even, but I will always love my Chargers. 20+ yrs of being a fan doesn't just stop on a dime...

    I don't call myself a fan4ever for nothing. I've been one since I first heard of the team in 1967. I waited on "Bambie" back in the day. I've seen many players come and go and it's a sad day when you part company with someone. Remember when Klein sold the defence to SF? Seau? Harrison? It will be truly be the saddest day when LT does hang up his hat. Hopefully it will have bolts on it. I'm still here and when I'm dust it will be Charger Blue.

    I seen Bambi go and many other after him, I actually seen a head coach worse than any other to be part of the game. Yes Harland.... on second thought I don't want to bring that up. Yes I'll still be a Bolt's fan, always have been always will.

    How about this? Some people have had it with this franchise and are disgusted with the management.

    I'm one of them. Yes, I'll still have my season tickets if LT is released and the Chargers will still be my team but enough is enough!!! You can't expect everybody to have the same level of tolerance.

    The "new wave" fan has no clue what bad football is all about, and should be required to have a full and complete indoctrination on the Bolt's before telling others what they are witnessing.

    Well, the first payment to renew your tickets due Saturday.

    I've already renewed mine. :icon_toast:

    But I have to think there are fans who want to wait until they hear LT's fate.

    One of my clients who had season tickets for years (spent 3-4k every year on them) stopped as soon as they hired Norv. He still follows the team, but won't go to a game.

    All players get older and beat up and loose that all important step that beats the other guy. We need to trade LT. Keep sproles and find another quick back.

    No one ever wanted LT to get older and a bit slower and more injury prone. But time stops for no man. I hope LT restructures and stays. But with his pride he'll want to try and prove he's still the best. Good for him. But its a craapshoot with how much the chargers are paying him and that we still need two or three better players to get to the promised land.

    True, but if the reason for re-negotiating LT's contract is to free up cap space, then I can easily find $10M w/out touching LT. We owe Wilhelm, Hart, and Tucker $10M in 2009. I think the ROI is a bit higher on an LT than that trio.

    No one will give us jack squat for LT in a trade...maybe a 5th rounder ?

    LT needs to swallow his pride and accept a two back set at less money with incentives to pay him more than Sproles. LT needs to produce in crunch time which he has not in the past two years. Love me some LT but he has to know his time is almost done. Many players restructure to help the team. LT should be no different. He makes millions on the endorsement alone so he needs the Bolts or the NFL to keep that nookie coming.
