After being fined last month for tweeting that the team-provided food at training camp was not to his liking, Cromartie took to the interwebs again to share a picture of the notes he took while studying film this week.
According to Jay Paris of the North County Times, the image showed formations and Cromartie’s scribblings. The formations were, presumably, sets from the Oakland Raiders, San Diego’s opponent Monday night.
Innocuous? Probably. But, if Cromartie didn’t violate the letter of the Chargers “no tweeting inside the building” rule, he certainly stomped on the spirit of it by giving the appearance of tweeting from within the confines AND reproducing notes.
According to Paris, Cromartie placed athletic tape over his locker when reporters approached and said, “Don’t even ask me about it.”
Chargers General Manager A.J. Smith, meanwhile, didn’t comment to reporters but marched directly over to defensive back drills at the start of practice and stared lasers.
Said Turner, who’s just trying to coach a very good football team that seems to have a handful of players off on their own programs, “I feel good about where we are and the understanding I have with ‘Cro’ in this situation.”
Unfortunately, that’s probably how Turner felt last month as well.
