    Two people at my work have both said that something has happened to both of them. One guy said Craig Davis may had torn his ACL? Turner may have fell and landed wrong??
    anyone know anything about this??

    This would be the main topic on every single Charger Forum online. It ain't so. Davis tweaked a hammy, but nothing big. Didn't hear anyting about Turner, which means that nothing at all happened to him.

    Why do people even post such unsbustantiated rumors? How about doing some research for yourself and finding out if it's being reported by a reputable news outlet before alarming people"

    Hint: "A guy at your work" is not a reputable news outlet.

    I'll back up BB here (not that he needs it). If your Dad tells you something, it's alot more credible then some yahoo. If someones dad lives near someone, there is a little better chance of trueth then some guy slinging mud.
    Eveyone wants to be the head writer and get stuff out as quick as possible and then do research. Remember, others will look highly upon you if you seem to have "connections" to get the good gossip!!!

    How did Davis go from a slightly tweaked hamstring to a torn ACL? :icon_shrug:

    Michael Turner fell and landed wrong? Uh, where, and how? :icon_huh:


    Tell your "sources" that they need to come up with a better lie or shut up.

    I apologized for that. But for every reputable bit of inside info somebody posts, there are 10 "LT tore his ACL" threads that are started, at least at the UT anyway. I don't think there's anything wrong with being skeptical. My mistake was that I lashed out at the guy reporting the info, because he seemed unable to answer some really basic questions about how he was given the information. I jumped the gun.

    There is a big difference between your dad calling and he witnessed the aftermath of the Foley shooting and a guy at your work saying "I heard Davis tore his ACL."

    Davis strained a groin and nothing has been said about Turner. McCree's knee did swell up like a cantelope from a strained knee ligament.

    Hey boltssbbound and wonderslug...

    i never said anything happened, i just asked if any of you heard anything because people at my work were asking me if anything happened, and i didnt have an answer cuz i havent heard about it or read about it.

    i did do some research and i couldnt find any thing, so being a member of this board, i figured i would ask you guys.

    so dont be such cockksuckers and talk all kinds of shiit about a post...if you dont know or dont wanna read my post, then dont fuccking read it a$$holes. as for you telling me to get other sources...unlike some of you arrogant asses, i dont have a source. i am too busy at work to be able to sit on a computer all day and do research about things like this. so next time, if you dont have an answer, save your rhetoric for someone who gives a damn. :tdown:

    and one of them was a raider fan...the other was a vikings fan.

    Ah ok. No problem. I was actually slamming the guys who told you this info, by saying that they need to come up with a better lie, or that they should shut up. :icon_tease:

    Nothing was directed towards you. Peace. :tup:

    it was in serious question...i looked to see if anything was out there on it...i couldnt find anything, so i asked bolttalk. then all of a sudden people are telling me to shut up, look it up yourself, quit starting rumors...and so on....

    i knew it was a rumor...i just wanted to see if anyone knew anything about it.

    thats why the subject line has question marks after it...and thats why everything in my post is a question...not a

    "hey, my sources are telling me that davis just got back from Trinity Medical and they did an MRI saying his ACL is torn.."

    no, i simply asked a question and got flamed by people who are jumping the gun....
