    I just heard LT on fox sports radio. He said he will be completely healthy in 1 and a half months, at max according to docs.

    More importantly, he said at the end that he STILL hasnt been given any indication that he will be a Charger in '09. He said he is unsure and doesnt know where he will be next year. Food for thought for you smith lovers, and that "call" smith gave that settled everything. Even the DJs were shocked to hear this.

    So let's see
    AJ goes through the trouble of explaining what's happening, the decision being made, so does Dean Spanos, and LT STILL gets on the air to the press and opens his mouth up? I'm sorry but LT is really starting to piss me off

    easy now... before this thread turns into another AJ vs LT thread...

    I also heard him on Rome at lunch and his response to a very similar question was totally benign. He answered a question with the truth - that's it! He hasn't even been offered anything re: restructuring and we all know that's what's coming. So it's the truth - he doesn't know - yet. And since this is a business, why would he say anything otherwise? He can't say "i'll take whatever they offer me no matter what b/c i want to stay a Charger" -- AJ's objective is to get the best deal possible for the organization, LT says that and he can low ball him and then LT is a liar if he won't accept. Just like AJ won't commit to anything - it's just business.

    He's in Tampa b/c of his commitments to Chunky Soup and their "Tackling Hunger" program. So he's scheduled to do all the media row stuff - how is he supposed to handle the questions? "No Comment" ???? Yeah... that wouldn't fan the flames...

    I hope Chunky comes out with a 30% fewer calories version for LT... since that's how much his workload needs to be reduced next year in order to justify the pay cut. :lol:

    Don't think it'll calm the sh!t stirers or chicken littles around here though.

    C'mon ant! The man just said the SAME THING twice today : he and AJ cleared the air and the ONLY way he doesn't see himself being a charger is IF the organization tells him that he's not in their plans.

    I really don't see anything wrong here.
