As we all know, the proverbial shit definitely caked the fan to the point of non operation on Sunday evening here at the Murph. Our newly appointed rivals punished us at the expense of our well documented errors for a victory bringing them one step closer to their 4th Super Trophy in the last 6 years. Much acclaim should be showered upon the squad. However, the criticism that has been lobbed not so subtly in TBE's direction for his comments following the Patsies celebration on our turf is not warranted and certainly his class should not come into question.
TBE was one of very few Bolts that actually showed he gave a shit in defeat on Sunday. When certain other members of the NFL have danced and celebrated on opposing teams logos at mid field were dealt with in a much harsher manner. Unfortunately there isn't a youtube I could find, but when he celebrated a touchdown on Dallas' star and Darren Woodson tried to take his head off, I don't remember people calling out Woodson for a "classless act". Why the double standard now?
If anything LTD should be commended for standing up for our program and what he believed after he left his heart on the field. Innappropriate? Maybe. But, I'd rather have a guy like that going to war for us than the other Chargers that stood there and took it in the shitcan lubeless as the Patsies danced in our house.
Sorry if that is a dissenting opinion and with all due respect, I like LTD that much more for wearing our uniform and defending our squad. Perhaps if everyone had played with that passion on Sunday, we wouldn't be watching two other teams battling for the right to go to the Super Bowl.
