Oh, I wasn't directing the "sky is falling" comment directly at you, just that everyone seems to be making such an issue of it. It's the craze in sports "news". The melodrama off the field gets just as much coverage/discussion as what actually happens on the field of play. If I want to find out which coach is shaking hands with another coach.... or who is sitting next to whom on the sidelines.... I go straight to ESPN to keep me updated! It's almost like an SNL skit that these things get this much coverage. Sometimes I think ESPN is running a parity of itself.No sky is falling talk from me. I'm not predicting a Charger implosion b/c of this incident.But I'm not going to stick my head in the sand and pretend it didn't happen. It did. LT made an ### out of himself, choosing to diss Philip instead of encouraging him and trying to provide some positive reenforcement.I'd throw the new "controversy" in the same file as..."You know Shanny is stoked to see Merriman on TV during a game week"...and..."LT made a phone call to Marty!".Both of these were followed by big wins. Sometimes the sky simply isn't falling.tommyGunZ said:I'm the resident Charger optimist, and I thought LT's move was bush league, and that the post game "it's nothing" characterization is BS.LT was clearly upset and frustrated with Rivers, and reacted in a child like manner that lacked class and leadership. Winning cured the ill this time, but you find out about a players character when times are tough. It's easy to be a "leader" when you're smoking everyone and going 14-2. LT2.
