    Just thought I would mention... the great Canuncklestan icon Stompin' Tom Connors croaked today.

    Anyway... carry on.

    Yes, worse in MY unpopular opinion. At least Clary is average. ;)

    Oh pleazzzzze, like that is even fathomable !!!!

    Was the poor kid born with his feet turned the wrong way or what ?????

    Only then (and just I bet) would he be any worse than Jumpy, it is humanly impossible to be worse.

    My Gawd, if he's "average" then the poor bastards considered worse than him must have been born by Sloths then.

    I cannot believe the "sudden love" being showered upon this "most ordinary" of OG's ........ My god this league is getting watered down quickly if that's the case ......

    He and Jumpy put Abbott & Costello to shame when it comes to making me laugh ........

    Those guys would probably take offense to this question Jack. This version stomped his back foot on a pine board to keep time or enhance the musical effect... (depending on how you view the matter... haha).

    I always considered Johnny Cash more disgusting... as at least there was some comedic value to Stompin' Tom. There is no doubt that Cowboy music is the most simple form that exists. It is the easiest to read or play and the easiest way to make a buck if you are a bad musician. The lyrical themes tend to mirror this simplicity... ma horse died... ma woman left me for some wild swine... There are songs for the working poor and down trodden. But when they take on patriotic or political tones... (like Toby Keith vs the Taliban)... you begin to approach the intellectual level of Antonio Cromartie.

    American patriotism is like the loud fart in the room... (as anyone who has had to endure the USA USA chant at a sporting event will confirm). Canadian patriotism is worse as it is like the silent one that hits your nostrils forcefully without warning. Anyway... here is an hours worth. I don't suspect any of you can endure more than a minute. :D

    Oooops, my bad, I figured him to be an Ol' time Hockey player mate, thus the "Stompin'" moniker.

    By the way ..................."Cromartie and intellectual level" in the same sentence !!! ................. that one's gonna be impossible to top today, nice start to the day. ;)

    True. This discussion often lacks objectivity though. Who is the more divisive demagogue? Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper... or Hugo Chavez? How much do you in the USA know about either?

    TKO ......TKO'd !!!!!!

    Good move, going nowhere with that type player, tried hard and gave it his all, no problem with that and Thanks for the effort, but it's time to get players who make an impact, just not make up the numbers.

    Few lean years lie ahead while that is achievable though Im afraid to say.

    Dead is the only absolute imo. If Jared Gaither were dead, nobody could debate his value to the Chargers going forward. Otherwise.... :D

    You think he'll get another gig Blew ???

    I have my doubts, what is he ??? .... Coming up on 37 next birthday ???

    It's not like he isn't showing his age over the last 3 or so years and if someone is desperate enough, no way they could be silly enough to dole out 3 Mill or so...... Could they ???? (OK, sorry, I was forgetting that Buddy boy is still employed, Buffalo is the elephant graveyard of the NFL, so he will be back in 2013 for certain)

    I think we can agree on the "dead" assessment ....... The Big Softy is alive in consciousness only though, no ticker, no smarts, video game capabilities only these days mate.

    As a rotational player.... yeah, I could see it.

    How much did Junior see the field when Belichick brought him in? He was used in particular packages and situations.

    Spikes is still a decent run stopper, and he's a sure tackler. If he gets to the guy, then he brings him down the majority of the time. He doesn't have the wheels anymore, but playing close to the line of scrimmage, he can still be effective.

    Not sure I'd compare Spikes to Junior on too many levels mate, but I understand where your going.

    Plus, it certainly helps when you have a Coach who understands the game and how a player should and can be used in the twilight of his career, for the benefit of the team........ Norf never showed any ability to undertsand that philosphy at all........................ LT never being used as a decoy RB once the wheels had lost some air and used as a scatback receiver is a perfect example of that.

    But No, fair call, farg, his neck alone is probably worth a 1 year deal if nothing else.......

    That thing has veins in it thicker than my arms. :eek:

    Oh I dunno! He's too old these days to run away from his own reflection, so I think that he now faints like a fainting old goat that he's become :D

    Chargers get out of the Atari Bigby business
    Posted by Josh Alper on March 8, 2013, 3:36 PM EST
    [​IMG]
    Add another veteran defensive back to the discard pile.
    The Chargers announced Friday afternoon that they have cut safety Atari Bigby. He joins Dawan Landry, Aaron Ross and Chris Gamble as experienced secondary players cut loose by teams opening up cap and roster space ahead of free agency.
    Bigby started the first 11 games of the season for the Chargers, but missed the final five after going on injured reserve with a groin injury. He spent the 2011 season with the Seahawks and played for Green Bay for the first six years of his career. He turns 32 in September, an age that should keep him from ranking too high on anyone’s shopping list for safety help in what’s looking like a fairly deep market at the position.
    The Chargers will save $1.5 million under the cap by parting ways with Bigby. They used Corey Lynch and rookie Brandon Taylor in Bigby’s place after the injury. Taylor, a third-round pick in 2012, would be in the mix for the starting job but may be sidelined into the season after tearing his ACL in December.

    Atari Bigby released. Chargers will not bring back Antoine Cason. Quentin Jammer likely gone … Changes in secondary will rival those on OL

    We have some young up and comers already on the roster who may or may not fix the DB gaps - not so on the O-line...

    Funny, Bronco Billy Williamson brought up someone today I hadn't been considering and made a little sense in doing so - (see D’Alessandris connection) - that latter part just worries hell out of me. I'm not supposed to nod my head up and down on *anything* Williamson writes... ;)

    San Diego Chargers: Andy Levitre, G, Bills: Levitre is one of the best guards in the league. He will be sought after in free agency. But if the price is not through the roof, I think the Chargers will be a player for his services. The Chargers’ primary task this offseason is to improve the offensive line. Levitre would be a great start. Levitre, who is from California, likely would be interested in signing and reuniting with former Buffalo offensive line coach Joe D’Alessandris, who was just hired by the Chargers. He has a zone-blocking scheme. San Diego coach Mike McCoy said the Chargers will run the scheme that best fits the players, and I'm sure D’Alessandris would like to reunite with Levitre to help introduce his system. The Chargers’ best offensive lineman, guard Louis Vasquez, is also free. In the best-case scenario, San Diego would be able to keep both players, but it’s difficult to put top resources into two guards, especially with the team needing a left tackle. But because Levitre has experience in D’Alessandris’ system, I could see him being a more valued target than Vasquez.
