Chargers on Weddle fine: He stayed on field at halftime without permission

Chargers safety Eric Weddle was fined by the team in Week 15 for failing to return to the locker room during halftime so that he could watch his daughter perform in the halftime show during the team’s game against the Dolphins.

Coach Mike McCoy confirmed that Weddle received a fine, reportedly $10,000, for remaining on the field without getting permission from the team.

“Yes we did,” McCoy said. “We have a policy here, and a situation took place two weeks ago at our stadium. So yes, we did fine him.  It’s an organizational call.  We have a club policy here, and there are certain things we have to do as a football team at halftime to make adjustments, and things like that. That’s why we did that.”

That fine came to light on Monday after Weddle was placed on injured reserve and told that there wasn’t enough room on the team plane for him to travel with the club to Denver for the season finale. Chargers spokesman Bill Johnston said, via ESPN.com, that players on injured reserve have not been barred in the past, but they don’t have the space with 17 players on injured reserve right now.

Weddle’s agent David Canter said that they plan to file a grievance through the NFLPA regarding the fine. Weddle is set to be a free agent and the already dim chance he’d return in 2016 has probably gone away entirely.

  4. artvan15 says: Dec 29, 2015 10:07 AM

    You deserve the fine if you didn’t tell them and get permission. You guys make millions of dollars and don’t think you answer to anyone. Grow up!!!

  5. niners816 says: Dec 29, 2015 10:07 AM

    What a classless move by the Chargers. You don’t fine someone for something like that unless you’re out to get him. I complain about my team being bad, but I honestly feel bad for Chargers fans..from Spanos, the terrible owner, to moving, to fining one of your best players over the last few years for watching his daughter dance. That’s just pathetic. You’re up 23-0 at halftime, what are you going to say in the locker room?

    In a league that’s “all about the integrity of the shield” (yes that’s sarcasm trolls), this is some serious BS. You want a league with role models? You can start by not fining a guy 10k for watching his daughters halftime performance. What a classless organization.

  9. davetrembley says: Dec 29, 2015 10:15 AM

    Initially, I thought the fine was absurd, but on second thought, I now feel it was warranted. Weddle did have an obligation to request permission from his supervisor (coach). If the coaching staff said no, then maybe he could have skipped and just swallowed the fine. But he didn’t ask.

    At my place of work, I don’t get to just skip meetings to watch a dance recital. I could make arrangements to be there or try to. And I certainly don’t make-what -7 million like Eric Weddle does to uphold his responsibilities as a professional athlete.

  10. rcampore says: Dec 29, 2015 10:19 AM

    Please come to the Giants!!

  11. icanspeel says: Dec 29, 2015 10:19 AM

    I may be in the minority, but I feel like Weddle should have asked permission. He knew ahead of time his daughter would be performing.

    Sure the Chargers aren’t making the playoffs, but he left his team (job) which was preparing for the 2nd half of a game.

    On of my friends put it this way.. how many people can leave their job unannounced to go watch their kid perform somewhere? Most normal people notify their employer who more often than not would approve it.

  12. PegulaBucks says: Dec 29, 2015 10:20 AM

    terrible move by them, not as if the season was on the line at this point.

  13. rickochey says: Dec 29, 2015 10:23 AM

    and this is why the Chargers suck,,, they have backwards morals. If the Chargers want to be an ‘elite’ organization then they need to organize their priorities.

    God
    Family
    Chargers
    friends…

  14. 6250claimer says: Dec 29, 2015 10:23 AM

    Weddle is a turd. He should have asked permission to skip halftime. The Chargers should have then granted it, they’re going nowhere this year (other than out of town), and if they’d have denied his request, THEN Weddle would have had something to complain about. As it came down – the team is right, he’s wrong. What a dumpster fire, second only to the one burning brightly in Santa Clara. San Diego fans deserve a better fate.

  15. araidersfan says: Dec 29, 2015 10:24 AM

    If the Bolts org. had just left Weddle alone after he saw his kid perform, then chances are he would be playing for an NFC team next year and he would rarely be heard from again.

    Now I think that there’s a very good chance that Weddle will deliberately join an AFCW rival (hopefully my Raiders) so that he can get the satisfaction of helping his new team deal the Chargers 2 divisional losses every year.

  16. x716199121 says: Dec 29, 2015 10:25 AM

    There shouldn’t be outrage over this. Good for Weddle for being a parent first. That is going to be something she’s going to remember forever and worth more than the $10,000 fine, IMO.

    But that doesn’t mean the rules shouldn’t apply to him. He’s at work. You can’t step out of the workplace, missing a meeting, and then be all “what gives” when you get a slap on the wrist afterward.

  17. crbenker says: Dec 29, 2015 10:25 AM

    Another classless move by a two-bit organization.
    It’s obvious the Chargers don’t respect Weddle; they refused to even talk to him at the start of the season regarding an extension.
    Granted, he should have asked – but are we SURE he didn’t?
    And McCoy’s statement that, “We have to make adjustments at halftime” is pure BS!! The Chargers were UP by 23 points!!! What adjustments were you going to make? Oh wait, that’s right – you were probably going to go into the “Bend, don’t break” crap!! And end up losing!!
    McCoy should be the one shwon the door; NOT Weddle!!

  18. itswhereyourmindsat says: Dec 29, 2015 10:26 AM

    We don’t want the chargers in san diego anymore. Such a disgrace to sports. Worst ownership and management. Get put now spanos’s before you get your asses kicked on the streets

    ======================================
    Wrong!!!!!!! Bill Belichick would not approve what Weddle did and neither would Rodney Harrison. Looking at the Patriots safeties of McCourty, Harmon, and Richards, there isn’t much need for this guy. McCourty is the one back there now making the money and no need to pay another. The Patriots need to worry about paying Jones, Collins, and Hightower and drafting a couple of strong offensive linemen. No Weddle.

    “You deserve the fine if you didn’t tell them and get permission. You guys make millions of dollars and don’t think you answer to anyone. Grow up!!!”

    And team owners make a lot more and feel they dont have to answer to anyone. The fine is down right petty, this is confirmed for them telling Weddle he cant go with the team to Denver because there is no room on the plane. Petty, petty, petty…

  22. liquidchaoss says: Dec 29, 2015 10:30 AM

    “Wrong!!!!!!! Bill Belichick would not approve what Weddle did and neither would Rodney Harrison.”

    They had no problem signing Randy Moss and he did far worse. Bill would take Weddle if he needed him, no problem.

  24. contract says: Dec 29, 2015 10:36 AM

    “The fine is down right petty …”

    If you don’t show up for work, you don’t get paid. The Chargers should have suspended him, not stashed him on IR. Weddle is a prima donna who thinks he’s above rules, the team, and his teammates.

  25. jvw1982 says: Dec 29, 2015 10:37 AM

    Classless move by Weddle who put his interest above the team, this is in the middle of a game and he thinks he can do what he wants….just because the team is having a bad yr doesn’t mean you can do whatever the hell you want….I wouldn’t want him on my team, soon as we are out the playoffs he won’t take the games serious anymore….no thanks, let someone else have him he aint that good…..

  26. mt10425 says: Dec 29, 2015 10:37 AM

    I’m sorry but, I’m taking a flight home from the Middle East and stop defending my country because I have to watch my daughter dance on a football field for ten minutes. How many dance recitals do our soldiers miss? And the pay isn’t even close. Don’t put this selfish, ‘up yours Chargers, I’m leaving anyway’ all on the team. I don’t think 10k was warranted but, this stems from his spring training holdout/tantrum.

  27. jobrien572 says: Dec 29, 2015 10:38 AM

    Wow…this just amazes me. He skipped out on halftime without asking permission or telling anyone and most of you think that is fine? Isn’t he supposed to be with his team making adjustments with his coaches to you know, win the game? Just because his daughter was performing doesn’t give him a pass. If my kid is performing and I want to miss a something at work, even meeting, I am responsible to ask my boss if nothing more than a courtesy.

  28. mullman76 says: Dec 29, 2015 10:38 AM

    That is why the chargers will NEVER win a meaningful game.

    They have a tendency to run off their good players.

    Seau, Harrison, Tomlinson…..Weddle.

  29. coryfor3 says: Dec 29, 2015 10:38 AM

    Chargers are a real gem of an organization.

  30. demolition510 says: Dec 29, 2015 10:39 AM

    Should Weddle have asked for permission?
    Probably

    Did Chargers have right to fine him?
    Probably

    Petty and classless?
    Hell yea

  31. scrp2 says: Dec 29, 2015 10:42 AM

    This is a non-story. Of course you’re going to get fined if you’re not with the team at halftime.

    The Chargers put Weddle on IR so he can spend more quality time with his family and all of sudden he starts crying fowl to the press.

    Just accept it like a man and take a game check staying at home.

  32. jvw1982 says: Dec 29, 2015 10:47 AM

    Like Rodney Harrison before him,,will end up in the NE secondary…bank on it

    **********************************************************

    Yea I can see Weddle now asking Bill for permission to stay on the field at halftime since we already have a playoff spot locked up, I don’t need your rah rah speech at halftime….Bill would have security escort him out the stadium if he every stayed on the field during halftime without permission, he would be the first player cut during halftime…..no way this guy could play for Belicheck

  33. Patskrieg says: Dec 29, 2015 10:49 AM

    “If I didn’t get permission from my manager to watch a dance recital I’d be fired!!1!”

    Really guys? If your daughter was performing in front of 80,000 people, in the same building you worked in, and you had been one of the top 3 or 4 employees in your company for years and made them millions of dollars you’d still let your boss tell you what to do?

    I can’t stand it when people try to equate the circumstances of pro athletes to the bologna truck they work on.

  34. Cheating Inc, Boston Mass says: Dec 29, 2015 10:51 AM

    Pretty simple– Ask permission.

    The plain truth is that he knows he won’t be back and was sticking it to the team.

    He bailed on his teammates without permission. Weddle deserves every bit of that fine.

    Just the fact that he’s publicly whining about it is a red flag and tells us he is more of a prima donna than we thought.

  35. SJ says: Dec 29, 2015 10:52 AM

    Weddle is an average player on a defense that has under performed year after year. He made 7.5 million base salary this year and still created a pre season distraction over his contract, then missed half the season due to injuries. Now this? It’s time for him to move on.

  36. intrafinesse says: Dec 29, 2015 10:56 AM

    I’m ok with the fine. He asked for permission, and they declined, as is their right. He’s missing game time play discussions and adjustments.

    However, telling him not to come is kind of rubbing his face in it. It’s their right, but is petty, looks childish, and sends a bad message.

    He’ll end up somewhere else, and life will go on.

  37. bayousooner90 says: Dec 29, 2015 11:00 AM

    He bailed on his teammates? Really? He missed a halftime speech I think somebody in the secondary could catch him up, he is not a rookie. Probably should have notified the coaches what he was doing, but this guy spends a ton of time away from his family to help the Spanos family make Millions they can’t cut him 15 minutes to watch his daughter? Pretty weak

  38. chargerz4life says: Dec 29, 2015 11:04 AM

    Not a way to thank a vet that was loyal to the team for so long!

  41. THX 138 says: Dec 29, 2015 11:07 AM

    Weddle knew that this was gonna be his last home game and just said screw the Chargers owners . I am going to watch my daughter perform as it is more important than the team that turned its back on me and the city of San Diego. Good for Weddle! He is a class guy . He was also tje last player to leave the field that day after the game as he stayed an extra 90 minutes signing every autograph and shaking every hand that asked. Chargers are a crap organization .

  42. jimthebuilder27 says: Dec 29, 2015 11:08 AM

    Things can’t get any worse for the Chargers right now!

    Worst owner in the NFL, a nightmarish season, they’re about to leave San Diego, and now they pull this on a player who was injured playing for them!

    What a pathetic franchise.

  43. standinginmybboystance says: Dec 29, 2015 11:11 AM

    Money well spent. Wouldn’t have missed it if that was my kid… With or without letting the team know.

    Probably not, but I wouldn’t be surprised if my employer didn’t like that very much and disiplined me as a result.

    Weddle made over $400,000 to play that Dolphins game. I know you don’t like comparing athletes to real jobs, but the fine was probably less than if he had “punched out” on the time clock like the rest of us.

    Some of these comments are too funny…unless there was a meeting scheduled at the same time as this dance performance I doubt most of your employers would miss you for 15 minutes, especially if it happened WHERE YOU WORK! Lmao.

  47. Cheating Inc, Boston Mass says: Dec 29, 2015 11:22 AM

    “He is not a rookie”

    —-thats exactly the point. He should have been in with the rookies and young players and the coaches making adjustments and helping his team. Instead he showed the rookies and young players to just say “f-the team. I do it my own way.”

    A first I was like “Good for him and his daughter. then i realized what he really did. Its worse the more I think about it.

  48. postman231 says: Dec 29, 2015 11:23 AM

    Seems reasonable considering he didn’t bother to communicate with the team what he was going to do

  49. whodeygirl says: Dec 29, 2015 11:24 AM

    Totally get the fine, although I don’t agree with it, but placing hime on IR? Really?? Sounds like a team I wouldn’t want to work for.

  50. cardinalsfan20 says: Dec 29, 2015 11:24 AM

  51. 6ball says: Dec 29, 2015 11:24 AM

    .
    Weddle should have been moved at the trading deadline. With almost every team desperate for help at safety, the Chargers easily could have gotten a #4 for him.
    .

  52. mt10425 says: Dec 29, 2015 11:30 AM

    The only thing really funny is the raider fans who want him to come replace Woodson. They should be thrilled when he drops every interception opportunity and is constantly late covering the WR or TE. You can always remember his number, it’s on the back of his jersey in full view as he chases players he should’ve tackled to the end zone.

  53. kissmysandwich says: Dec 29, 2015 11:36 AM

    Just one more reason McCoy should be fired. No way the players can respect a tool like that. Your season is over. Your team is a disgrace. Weddle is your best player on defense. Missing a half-time meeting isn’t going to change your horrible record. What a clown.

  54. phillynac says: Dec 29, 2015 11:37 AM

    Wait, people here are actually defending Eric Weddle? He should have asked for permission and should not have gotten it. You guys think it is o.k. to not be in the locker room for halftime adjustments to watch your daughter do a halftime show? Maybe at the Super Bowl, Tom Brady should excuse himself so he can watch Maroon 5 (or whoever is performing this year). Or maybe Cam Newton wants to take his kid for ice cream during halftime. This is football. It is a player’s job to be in the locker room at halftime, preparing for the 2nd half. I can’t believe anybody thinks this fine is unwarranted.

  55. nicofthenorthstar says: Dec 29, 2015 11:39 AM

    I can hardly believe all the righteous indignation from the bozos commenting that the Chargers are wrong to hold their employee accountable. This guy has made tens of millions of dollars from his employer over the years. His long tenure with the team puts him in a position of leadership among his teammates. His response is to make a very public display of shirking his responsibilities and defying his bosses.
    By comparison, I make a fraction of what this guy does; a comfortable middle class income. My job is demanding with long, less than desirable hours. Because of the nature of my work I miss family events, have to work some holidays, etc.
    Next Christmas when I am scheduled to work and miss that very special time with my daughters, should I just not show up? If I opt to skip work, should I expect a response from my employer?

    Weddle is wrong. He should pay his fine and thank the Chargers for all the great years.

    The sense of entitlement from people these days…

  56. pastanow says: Dec 29, 2015 11:50 AM

    Most of the negative comments against the Chargers management scream of entitled millenials that have no concept of the fact that he is paid handsomely for doing a job. Even more amazing is the fact that the odds are overwhelming in favor of the fact that a family member was there with a smartphone that has a video recorder built in. I have zero problem with the fine or having DVR the game from home. Season is lost? No problem. Players should miss practice, sleep through meetings, or show up wasted right? It’s a grown up world, act like a grownup.

    Not sure why some folks think it was okay to blow that off without permission.

    Yep, sometimes we have to miss our kids events because of our jobs. Unfortunately we are not all paid in the millions. Grow up Weddle. You made your decision, you got your penalty, move on.

  65. sindiegosage says: Dec 29, 2015 12:28 PM

    It’s not about the fine. No one should argue about someone knowingly breaking the rules.

    However…

    The fact that he was prematurely placed on IR yesterday AND told that he wasn’t welcome on the Chargers flight to Denver for his final game in a Chargers uniform is what’s news here. It was a petty move by the classless Spanos family.

    The young talented guys (Verrett, Perryman, Attaochu) saw what a classless organization this is with their treatment of a nine year veteran who was dedicated to the team and community. Do you think they’ll stick around and work for owners that treat their top players like this? They’ve heard about Fouts, Winslow, Seau, Harrison and LT, but they’ve seen it first-hand with Weddle.

    And what about potential Free Agents? Do you think they would work for such shysters as the Spanos family? Helllllll no.

    I smell a 1-15 franchise moving to LA. in a few years but the smell will be emanating from the Chargers offices, not only the landfill stadium.

  66. mt10425 says: Dec 29, 2015 12:49 PM

    No one likes the Spanos family but, don’t rip the team of terrific players and people, Rivers, Gates, Floyd, etc. Other players should want to play with these guys. There’s team players and mgmt, two different play pens. Weddle is also one of the good guys but, he was wrong in his dealings with mgmt in spring training and continues to be wrong. He sent the wrong message early. Rivers could’ve left but didn’t, he signed an extension, Gates could retire but he isn’t. People too often confuse that organizations are multi-layered.

  67. wahoo21 says: Dec 29, 2015 1:22 PM

    Half Time Adjustments ?

    The Chargers won that game which tells me they didn’t adjust anything

    Weddle knew the fine was coming and he gave the front office a big……..
    out the door

  68. fluiddarkness says: Dec 29, 2015 1:22 PM

    Still a ridiculous fine, Chargers. If he didn’t have permission, that’s alright – punish him in another way but don’t vilify him for being a good father. This is a very bad PR move for being a family-friendly franchise.

    Weddle gave San Diego several very good years and deserved better treatment than that.

    Yeah, he doesn’t need Weddle. I explained that in the post.

    Belichick has taken his chance on people and he usually does so on the cheap and Weddle is not cheap and not needed. Richards is much cheaper than Weddle and will probably be as effective next year in the Patriots secondary. Sorry to burst your bubble but Weddle will not be a Patriot in 2016.

    Are LDS members allowed to be Raiders? Probably not but I still think Weddle will be in silver and black next year. He will want to stay in CA (he’s from LA) and the Raiders will need a safety with Woodson leaving.

    To correct the incredible amount of misinformed comments above: Weddle did not ask permission and left his $7.5 million dollar job.

    Mike Scifries also had a daughter in that halftime show and DID ask permission and WAS allowed to see her perform.

    Big difference, and he should have been fined.

    Eli Manning knew exactly what he was doing.

    The San Diego CHARGERS have rules just like any employer has to operate their business. We you accept a position or job with the company, in this case the Chargers, you sign a contract agreeing to follow the teams rules. YOU know in advance what the policy and procedures are for cases like this. If you voluntarily choose not to follow the same rules you accepted as terms of employment, you are liable for the consequences.

    And now you know why the players don’t play for the Chargers. Nobody wants to be there!

    There’s some new info available. Mike Scifres daughter was also in the halftime event. He asked permission to stay out and watch. It was granted by the Chargers.

    Have no idea the regulations or protocols in the teams hierarchy . it’s a business and if Johns Used cars wanted to move from SD to North Dakota I doubt there would be much concern. What makes the Chargers possible move a misery is the public $ invested prior and proposed. Team owners think they can gather more money in L.A. where there seems to be little historical support. Looks like a gamble on their part and I’d think expectations of losing money and losing season might just be in their near future, at the same time they alienate the current fan base.
    I agree with most people that think the billions the NFL banks each year should be the resource for stadiums where they can market their product. Where they put those plots I could care less.
    I’ve been an AFC West fan for near 60 years and if SD moves then maybe I will move on……..to the Raiders or Chiefs…..or, no not horses ass

    Why not ask? All he had to do was communicate to the coaches. Isn’t that what all players want? Communication from coaches? So why is communication from a player to coach wrong
