Chargers say they are “fully cooperating” with NFL

AP

The Chargers are off this week, but their P.R. staff is working.

In response to the report from FOX’s Jay Glazer that the league is investigating the Chargers for using a banned substance known loosely as “stickum” during the Monday night loss to the Broncos, the Chargers have issued a statement.

Wisely, the team has not asked the NFL to take a “Chill Pill.”

“We are aware of the inquiry and are cooperating fully with the League,” the team said.

Cooperation is critical, as the Saints have learned the hard way.  A bad situation only gets worse is there’s any lying or covering up involved.

  1. Will it be more or less cooperation than they gave the Broncos in aiding their comeback efforts?

  2. Everyone makes mistakes and poor decisions at some point. Glad they are man enough to cooperate with the league. Used to be a fan of the Saints but now I have nothing but disgust for them.

  3. Coach should be suspended for a year, WR Coach should be banned indefinitely, any WR’s who used the substance should be suspended, team should be fined $500,000 and the Chargers should forfeit two second round draft choices.

    The rule against using sticky substances has been well known for many years and is not a grey area.

    Ah..if Payton, Loomis and Vitt cooperated with the NFL in the bounty thing, that whole mess wouldn’t happen.

  5. @westclaims, if you don’t see a connection (as stated in this article) between the Chargers actually cooperating with NFL and the Saints choosing to do the opposite in relation to “bountygate,” you are clearly an idiot.

    Suspend Norv Turner and at least two starters for the season immediately
    ————–

    I am quite sure Bolts fans would support suspending Norv Turner-would be beneficial for the team!

    I should think not. I have principals.

  9. Time to put an asterisk* on the Chargers’ championships. They are now tainted with stickum.

    ———-

    Right “championship”, I’m sure most Chargers fan believe they have a bunch of phantom championships.

  10. I wonder if the Aints fans are going to come to the defense of SD, since Goddell is now out to ruin both the Aints and SD. The difference will be the SD players will be man enough to admit the wrong doing and not try and act like they are not guilty.

  11. Embarrassed to be a Choker, I mean Cheater, I mean Charger fan. The only good that can come out of this will be the end of A.J. and Norv.
