LaDainian Tomlinson is done talking about the Chargers, but the damage is done.
In a eye-opening take-down in Friday’s San Diego Union-Tribune, venerable columnist Nick Canepa wonders why Tomlinson took a “selfish, vitriolic, ungrateful road out of town.”
The words are jarring because Complainian owned San Diego for so long. Few cities have embraced a player more completely, but the team may not have felt the same by the end. Canepa points out that not a single player showed up for Tomlinson’s goodbye press conference.
Even Tomlinson’s agents and advisers reportedly aren’t pleased with how he’s publicly handled the departure. His ex-offensive linemen are reportedly “livid” but have taken a vow of silence. Classy.
