    Finally have had enough of the SDUT forums, the lack of modding, the abusive clique of irrational homers that think Norv Turner is Vince Lombardi. Really need some place with fewer personal attacks where SOME common sense rules.

    Don't know if it's here, but I'd like to give it a shot.

    Welcome.

    Personal attacks happen here but are not allowed generally.

    I personally value the ability to speak ones own mind and some times it is not main stream thinking which causes fans to react like pirahnas.

    Stick to your guns.

    Diversity of thought makes a site unique. Disagreements push the boundaries of thought when you are forced to think on your feet and there is nothing wrong with that.

    Anyway, our team is in trouble. Fans are dissecting away post mortum and the patient is still breathing.

    I am searching for my rusty butter knife as well.

    Enjoy the stay and post away.

    It is not much better here. All of the other forum rejects seem to have started gathering here. They try to show us how big their wang is and how smart they are.
    I need an alternative to the alternative.

    I gave up on SOSD years ago. 6 or 7 years I think. Never been back. After Chargeroo left as a Mod, it went to hell in a hand basket.

    Good thing Eric (Thumper) started this site because nothing much was out there worth a crap.

    The vocal homer clique there these days really isn't irrational, they just take pleasure in heaping personal abuse on anyone that dare criticize Turner or Smith. Players? No problem. What front office and coaching staff has its own forum PR hacks on forums? It's crazy, to them it's like the buck stops at the lowest level. There is virtually no modding to keep personal attacks under control like every other forum I've ever participated in. It's just nuts, unless you're more an AJ or Norv fan, than a Charger fan.

    I dig A.J. Smith. I also respect those who think he is the Anti-Christ. It helps me keep perspective that A.J.'s urine may be poison and not a cure for cancer as I thought.

    In the grand schemes, AJ is about to surpass Sid Gilman in wins faster than Sid. Old fans know Sid's story so AJ is about to do something pretty special.

    BUT

    anything less than a Lombardi from here out is a dogshite.

    Nice little conundrum.

    Most like to practice on being "cut down" artists or "I burned you badly with my post" buffoons. I'd rather talk football and what it takes to get this team the hardware.

    Welcome!! Really one of the more mature and "get to the point" forums I've been to, not to mention one of the more knowledgeable boards.

    I am starting to question this ....

    AJ is about to pass Sid Gilman. I want to see that maybe to the detriment of the bigger picture.

    Stever Crosby is not getting fired because he is close to his NFL retirement pension.

    I have become infected with the same disease. Jesus Christ.

    I have made a concerted effort to not get personal until I met you. :)

    You could have been stuck with worse like a piccolo player.

    Old School -

    I am not sure how long you have been watching this team but if you remember the days of Harland Svare, this is cake. Really. We have been through much worse. Attendance was in the mid 20k for fans who showed up during the drug scandal.

    Oddly, I can handle the down cycles just fine, it's the 'getting so close you can touch it' - but don't - periods that gut me like a fish.

    I thought I would never recover from the Coryell era but we did. I think that era has tempered my expectations so this go around is a bit easier although it is gut wrenching nonetheless.

    Let's not also forget trying to find a thread you started to only find out that a "mod" changed the thread title to something that "he" thought would be more appropriate.

    I don't know how anyone can defend Norval right about now. :lol:

    And this is coming from someone who's generally a bit of a homer.

    Truly, there is a group of about 6 or 7 that fly by the same manifesto and dominate the place by sheer post volume. I swear, the team could go winless the rest of the year, they would still insist management is blameless and it's all on the players, and then they'd swarm anyone that wasn't stupid enough to drink their kool-aid.

    Looking forward to some change of pace.

    I concur, to not see the affect of a HC on team discipline and motivation is truly baffling to me.

    at this point I don't think anyone here still supports Norv, AJ still has some supporters but is generally on probation

    This board seems to be much more rational than the others I have been on. I swear it seems that the Chargers pay PR people to post on one of the other boards.

    Welcome!

    I personally don't have a problem with people having differing views, but I really can't stand the people that just hate Norv, hate A.J., or hate Spanos and damn near every single post they share has to let all of us know that.
