    I haven't watched the post game stuff till last night and I was suprised to see this guy making excuses for the colts having sooo many injuries and backups in the game. I'm pretty sure the Chargers have delt with this more but man what a tool. He was so down I thought he was from indy. Not much of a sports writer if his opinion is slanted. Is he from here and just hates it? Dude needs a new job.:confused:

    He used to work for the SDUT and covered the Chargers for over a decade .. Personally, I've pretty much stopped following the guy because I think he has started to over compensate for his past bias ..

    Yeah, like you said. Trotter used to be a UT beat writer for the Bolts, but now has become the Chargers "Negative Nancy". Dude hardly has anything nice to say about the Bolts. He's also a self proclaimed Marty lover. I just take what he says with a grain of salt. Or I just mute his arse....

    He's basically the anti-Acee. He hates AJ, loved Marty. Supported guys like LT and VJ (supported VJ and MM's holdouts) and blamed AJ for everything that went wrong. He's probably pissed that the team is winning without those guys and proving AJ right.

    If no one read what he said, would he have a job?

    He's a very negative writer on the chargers but just like Acee I take what he says with a grain of salt. When that's done it usually helps. Or conversely read Acee then immediately read Trotter. Still I think he was just wildly negative about this game suggesting this doesn't mean squat.

    Can't say I had any problem with what he said. All he said was "It doesn't matter what chargers do in the regular season if they fail in post season". Obvious yes but nonetheless true. Don't know anything about he's past though.

    Trotter is just bitter. Where the Chargers are concerned, he looks for anything negative to dwell on. When I hear his voice I mute the source while saying "Loser!".
