    Mate, there are more immigrants here now than ever before obviously ..........................in those 20 odd years I was away, its incredible to see how the "face of our Culture" has changed so dramatically ......................and I'm not at all saying its a bad thing, its just the rate of change that is quite shocking.

    In the 50's and 60's we had a huge influx of immigrants (mainly skilled labour types) from England, Italy and Greece for the most part, as God knows we Aussies weren't capable enough in those departments to keep the Country afloat.

    But now in the time since I was gone, it seems that the Middle Eastern, Indian and Asian influence has completely eclipsed anything that followed earlier and the sheer weight of numbers are quite staggering to say the least

    According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, 10 teams checked in on Flowers after his release from Kansas City, with the Ravens and Falcons among that group. The question now is whether Flowers makes any more in-person visits with interested clubs.

    Ten teams "checked in" with Flowers, but the only team he's actually visited is the Chargers......... interesting. ;)

    SD's defensive scheme is also the type he prefers. But will he be willing to take less than him 10 million he was due to get from KC?

    Taking calls, is nothing though...... agents take calls all the time. If it's serious, he'd at least want to make a visit. So far, he hasn't gone anywhere else. Sounds more likely that nobody has offered enough above the Chargers to warrant a visit.

    A possibility for sure. Did I hear that Houston was released as well?

    Well, it certainly does raise the question about how all these immigrants are given so many handouts upon arrival and breeds dissension among the locals, that's for certain.

    Not saying the Aboriginals aren't given plenty, because they are these day's, but its the feral/bogan caucasians that seem to be the one's who get nothing (plenty deserve exactly that though it must be noted) and ofcourse that causes all sorts of problems as the "race card" is inevitably bought up at every instance by all sides.

    The franchise, or the player?. Lets see....... Whitney's dead, and Allen retired a long time ago. Who were we talking about? ;)

    OK, well whatever his price, NO CB is worth that kind of moolah, wasn't it only a few years back all we heard about was "Revis Island" this and that ...................now look at the guy, sending teams over the cap for one year contracts and hasn't improved their position at all.................the guy is nothing but a football mercenary, selling out to the highest bidder and couldn't care less about winning or losing, as long as the paychecks roll in every month, he's happy to play with any jersey on his back.

    Liuget ready to shoulder a bigger load
    By Tom Krasovic
    JUNE 23, 2014


    Corey Liuget is thrilled with his iron-rich diet.

    The defensive end said he's stronger than at any point last season because offseason shoulder surgery is allowing him to lift weights. He is hoisting up to 315 pounds, or the weight of an offensive lineman.

    "Being able to get under the bench, it's helping me now," he said last week. "I see the difference in actually pumping weights and everything."

    Liuget played all 18 games despite torn shoulder cartilage, the labrum.

    Barring injury, expect him to be more powerful this year. He plans to be faster too by playing 11 pounds lighter, at 290.

    "When I drop (weight), I actually have a little more strength," he said. "I have more might."

    He weighed 304 coming out of last week's mini camp, yet outpaced the other linemen in gassers after the final practice.

    When Liuget damaged the shoulder last August, in the second preseason game, teammate Jarret Johnson had a sense of the difficulties ahead. "I had the same injury in 2009 in training camp," he said. "It's tough because you lose strength."

    Johnson damaged also his shoulder joint in training camp '09. He said he nonetheless performed very well, until wearing down late in the season.

    Liuget wasn't satisfied with his '13 season, grading it a C+ or B- last December.

    Despite the strength loss, he stayed in the lineup and made plays -- splitting two Broncos linemen and pressuring Peyton Manning into an interception, in the Game 14 upset at Denver; and creating push in the playoff victory at Cincinati. He placed 10th on the "U-T 22" list of Chargers contributors.

    "A lot of guys have a lot of injuries," Johnson said. "Some of them are nicks, some of them are severe. You really don’t know. But we all know how tough Corey is and how hard he plays.

    "He could be one of the best in this league."

    Jack, it has been done ;)

    Now you can start biatching about Flowers! As much I was advocating for Clary (reverse psychology in full-force) it now seems that he is either going to be dispensable or re-negotiated.

    I see no reason not to renegotiate regardless. He's making more than he's truly worth, despite his value to the team (which is greater than the fans).
