Yes, Nick Novak was urinating on the sideline

Nick Novak, Mario Haggan, Andre' Goodman AP

The 2011 Chargers season essentially ended on Sunday in appropriate fashion.

Philip Rivers was erratic and Norv Turner coached not to lose.  Oh, and the lasting image of Turner’s last chance in San Diego? His kicker was caught taking a piss on the sideline.

Ladies and gentlemen: Nick Novak.

We suppose it beats eating a hot dog.

    Well that makes sense. As a kicker all you do all game is walk the sideline, drink gatorade, practice kicking, drink water, kick a extra point here and there, drink more water, and repeat.

    What a coincidence, Norval Turner pissed away any chances the Chargers had of winning something, anything, the past few years.

  3. bertilfox says: Nov 27, 2011 10:00 PM

    Usually Charger kickers wait until the potential game winning kick to piss themselves…

  4. r8rh8r says: Nov 27, 2011 10:00 PM

    He was just practicing getting it thru the uprights. Of course, since he’s a Charger, he choked and got it all over his leg.

    It’s never felt so good to have relieved myself of season tix in SD the minute I found out they hired Norv.

    Thanks for wasting 4 years in SD Norv. Solid work as usual.

    Novak just became one of my favorite players

  7. kane337 says: Nov 27, 2011 10:02 PM

    Why does the NFL not allow port-o-potties on the field for the players? They drink so much fluids during the game.

  8. mcjon22 says: Nov 27, 2011 10:04 PM

    Doesn’t he know that’s a felony in some states?

  9. somethinsbruin says: Nov 27, 2011 10:04 PM

    I can’t believe the No Fun League posted a video of a player peeing on its website. Don’t go to the ground to celebrate a TD though.. that projects the wrong image. What?!

  10. The Shoeman says: Nov 27, 2011 10:08 PM

    You have just been * Norv’ed * again !

  11. My Last Victim Escaped says: Nov 27, 2011 10:09 PM

    Fitting. He chose to do it right by the gatorade. Wonder if he was as accurate as his overtime FG.

  12. bronfieldmann says: Nov 27, 2011 10:16 PM

    Is it me or is it weird that the NFL is hosting this video? weird.

  13. lionsfanatic84 says: Nov 27, 2011 10:30 PM

    Saving his pants the embarrassment after watching tebow take away their playoff hopes

    ==================================

    I noticed that too. Whoever put this up on NFL.com should get fired. Roger Goodell should bbe embarrassed to be associated with that.

  15. kane337 says: Nov 27, 2011 10:39 PM

    Novak p1ssed away the game winning field goal.

  16. headshot1189 says: Nov 27, 2011 10:41 PM

    Looked like he had some trouble finding the little guy. Thank God he wasn’t in GB, that turtle would have never come out of its’ shell!

  17. pbolyard says: Nov 27, 2011 10:43 PM

    Urinating in public offenders must register as sex offenders in some states.

  18. mabidi107 says: Nov 27, 2011 10:57 PM

    Probably peed in a cup and handed it to Norv.

  19. dylanmusicfane says: Nov 27, 2011 10:58 PM

    now I’m gonna have to try to urinate kneeling. that looks difficult.

  20. stevenfbrackett says: Nov 27, 2011 11:00 PM

    If there is any player on the sidelines who has the time to duck into the locker-room for a quick pee, it would be the kicker.

  21. 2ndaryinsanity says: Nov 27, 2011 11:01 PM

    that was AWESOME!!! Best highlight of the entire game. Glad to see John Elway’s been practicing his “happy face” since last week. Although, anyone else think it was weird Elway was channeling his Jerry Jones by being on the sideline @ the end of the game????
    Chargers should be embarrassed they lost this one.

  22. smartbutlazy says: Nov 27, 2011 11:02 PM

    He’s a kicker, he was just gauging the wind. Duh.

  23. samoanjungle says: Nov 27, 2011 11:07 PM

    Any reason they can’t have a port-o-let on the sidelines?

  24. j0esixpack says: Nov 27, 2011 11:10 PM

    I’m guessing that’s NOT the type of product placement Gatorade was counting on when it supplied those towels.

    Ironically, it had to be the lemon-lime sports drink that’s been trying end associations with warm piss since its inception.

  25. baldingerspinky says: Nov 27, 2011 11:13 PM

    R Kelly never watched a moment in a football game so intensely.

  26. granadafan says: Nov 27, 2011 11:16 PM

    The Stanfurd Band approves.

  27. avanderlay says: Nov 27, 2011 11:21 PM

    Maybe he’s the funniest guy ever and is just spiking the long snappers cup?

  28. superbronco77 says: Nov 27, 2011 11:23 PM

    He is my St. Nick! Go Broncos!

  29. granadafan says: Nov 27, 2011 11:29 PM

    No no, he was just Tebowing!

  30. jjbadd says: Nov 27, 2011 11:30 PM

    He was checking to see which way the wind was blowing!

  31. timegambit says: Nov 27, 2011 11:33 PM

    He kept just enough to piss that kick down the side of his leg.

  32. redskinspike says: Nov 27, 2011 11:40 PM

    How is he not charged with urinating in public? I live in Virginia and if you’re drunk and take a leak in an alleyway where no one can see you you get charged as a sex offender. He was fully coherent and made the decision to pee on the field on national TV and in front of 64,000 people, and doesn’t get charged with anything? Must be nice being a football player.

  33. footballgirl1 says: Nov 27, 2011 11:42 PM

    Don’t drink the yellow Gatorade!

  34. romoscollarbone says: Nov 27, 2011 11:46 PM

    The guys actually playing sweat it out. Kickers, not so much. No big deal the guy took a leak, or worse texted somebody.

  35. bearsrulepackdrool says: Nov 27, 2011 11:49 PM

    Shout out the guy holding the towel over him.
    Pull the short straw? Rock, paper, scissors? Owe somebody money?

  36. stevenkramer619 says: Nov 28, 2011 12:02 AM

    From personal experience, this happens more on NFL sidelines than you might think. And no, they weren’t the kickers doing it.

  37. humb0lt says: Nov 28, 2011 12:05 AM

    Give the guy a break. He already had a bad day missing two field goals that would have won the game. Do you have to totally humiliate him on top of that?

  38. JackLeone says: Nov 28, 2011 12:20 AM

    ….a shoe in for a spot on C’mon Man!

  39. bearsrulepackdrool says: Nov 28, 2011 12:23 AM

    I played football with a full bladder. But, you know what made me get through the game? I ACTUALLY PLAYED THE GAME AND TOOK MY MIND OFF OF IT.

    Maybe Godell has already brought in HGH testing and the edict was sent down the mountain for Nick to provide a mid game sample.

  42. goldrush36 says: Nov 28, 2011 12:30 AM

    Damn this happened in Cali? San Diego County DA could have a field day with this. There’s video proof of him pissing in public. That’s a punishable felony and Sex Offender status in this state lol. I suppose being a Charger is punishment enough though. Should’ve kept your OC job in San Francisco Norv, then again that may have avoided that dumpster fire that was Singletary becoming HC leading to Harbaugh so I’m glad you didn’t

    Was anyone else aware that Novack is really R Kelly?

  46. ccooww says: Nov 28, 2011 1:37 AM

    I hear Elway is in talks with Minnesota about a trade for McNabb. Vikings want a #1 but Denver want go higher
    than a #2. Denver is still in negotiations

  47. eaglesandflyers says: Nov 28, 2011 1:45 AM

    Roger Goodell will fine Novak and whoever posted the video $75,000.

  48. claymatthewsisonsteroids says: Nov 28, 2011 2:12 AM

    Indecent exposure? This game must have been played in Wisconsin. They are used to this stuff…

  49. Slackmo says: Nov 28, 2011 2:25 AM

    At least he didn’t wipe a booger on Mark Brunell.

  50. linkinxr says: Nov 28, 2011 2:26 AM

    My wife asked if he was pissing. I looked and paused and sure enough we knew he wasn’t tying his shoes so the only logical answer was he was refilling the gatorade duh!!

  51. brutus3413 says: Nov 28, 2011 2:36 AM

    I’m surprised he doesn’t use a holder for that…

  52. raider23mike says: Nov 28, 2011 3:00 AM

    Maybe that’s why he missed the FG .. He just couldn’t holder anymore

  53. jcdavey2011 says: Nov 28, 2011 3:16 AM

    norv doesn’t deserve the hate, he’s just another in a long line of cursed san diego sports figures

    every chargers head coach and player in the superbowl era inevitably end up pissing away any shot at a superbowl

    fact…….

  54. blackqbwhiterb says: Nov 28, 2011 5:23 AM

    How’s it feel to make the highlight reel, Mr. Novak?Surely Momma Novak is soooo proud…

  55. 06mustang says: Nov 28, 2011 6:19 AM

    Big deal. So the dude took a piss. Good thing Suh wasn’t in the area. Would have probably had his face rubbed in it.

  56. peed1 says: Nov 28, 2011 7:37 AM

    Maybe if he had taken a dump he would have made the winning field goal. He might have pulled a muscle pissing like that.

  57. drednot says: Nov 28, 2011 7:47 AM

    If any of us did that, they’d arrest us for indecent exposure.

  58. haywoodjablomee says: Nov 28, 2011 8:03 AM

    Maybe he was just peeing and Tebowing at the same time.

  59. pantherfaninmd says: Nov 28, 2011 8:04 AM

    Although I think this is very funny, last time I did this I spent a few days in jail! Lol. Good thing they didn’t throw me on the list.

    No reason they shouldn’t have a port-o-potty on the sideline, when you gotta go you gotta go!

  60. cuda1234 says: Nov 28, 2011 8:15 AM

    Could you please spare us the early-morning profanity? I expect more from PFT. Besides if you used the word whizz, you could work in a clever Onterrio Smith reference,.

  61. zimaman says: Nov 28, 2011 8:47 AM

    thanks God he didnt have to take a scheott

    i dont think I could have watched it

  62. carolinacraig says: Nov 28, 2011 8:49 AM

    It was probably one of the league’s new random drug tests. The next one will be in the huddle.

    eaglesandflyers says: Nov 28, 2011 1:45 AM

    Roger Goodell will fine Novak and whoever posted the video $75,000.

    No he won’t.
    If ever there was an incident that Goodell wants to ignore, and pretend didn’t happen, that would be it…

  64. cshearing says: Nov 28, 2011 8:51 AM

    1) If you can actually get charged as a sex offender for pissing in public, you guys need to regain control of your laws. That’s about as ludicrous as it gets.

    2) I saw this on TV live, and I was wondering why the hell they had a camera on this guy; I assumed he was putting on a jock of something. The team mate had the towel up; there’s no doubt he was trying to hide. So why was the camera guy focused there? Seemed strange.

  65. raiderbeliever says: Nov 28, 2011 9:09 AM

    Naw, he was making a fresh bottle of gatorade for the Broncos.

  66. audient says: Nov 28, 2011 9:10 AM

    Playoff hopes, pissed away.

    How does Marty-ball look now, Chargers Fans?

  67. raiderbeliever says: Nov 28, 2011 9:10 AM

    Please do NOT fire Norv. We Raiders fans love him when he’s coaching ANOTHER AFC West team.

    It’s not in Pennsylvania if you notify your supervisor.

    bronfieldmann says: Is it me or is it weird that the NFL is hosting this video? weird.

    NFL.com “broke” the story, in addition to hosting the video. They clearly knew this would be out there whether they ignored it or not. Better to be proactive with the story and spin than let someone else do it.

  73. djrando7 says: Nov 28, 2011 9:43 AM

    I loved how the director kept the screen on him urinating there. How could you not tell he was urinating? Too funny. He should have just done like Mark Schlereth, and pissed himself. Schlereth did it in EVERY SINGLE GAME. He also used to puke during every game. That is AWESOME.

  74. matt530 says: Nov 28, 2011 9:58 AM

    What the video doesnt show is a camera phone and a pair of crocs

  75. icanspeel says: Nov 28, 2011 10:03 AM

    Nick Novak is getting more attention for urinating on the field than missing 2 key long field goals.

  76. selldannysell says: Nov 28, 2011 10:04 AM

    Another reason NOT to high-five a kicker!

  77. pigskinswag says: Nov 28, 2011 10:44 AM

    Urinating during a contest…NASCAR drivers approve.

  78. yallbetuckfards says: Nov 28, 2011 11:18 AM

    I like Novaks confidence here. He obviously planned on actually making the game winning FG and didnt want Norv to get a cold Gatorade shower.

    Stay classy San Diego!

  79. redskinspike says: Nov 28, 2011 11:53 AM

    …. it was a joke.
