  1. Several reasons, IMO:

    • Used to be that the average Joe could afford season tix.  Only 8-10 games, maybe $1000 or so.  Greed killed that with absurd prices.  The blue collar crowd priced out and the game day experience now sucks.
    • Games on too many nights and the over-saturation many have mentioned
    • In person game experience ruined by commercial after commercial-TV timeout after TV timeout.
    • Constant coverage on sports cable to the point of madness
    • Rules changes making the game a lot more like a video game than football
    • Poor management resulting in the No Fun League
    • Most recently, allowing politics to dominate more than the actual athletic contest
    • Debilitating effect of the game on players while the NFL tries to deny this

    The game now is big due to gambling and fantasy stuff.  Half-empty cadillac-like stadiums are the result.   

  2. I'm hoping maybe he had undisclosed injuries. He knows the craft. He's a proven supertalent. He's only 31. Rod Woodson played at 38, Darrell Green was almost 43.
    Darrelle's "I'm old" comment was either a cover-up excuse or turning past 30 messed with his head. He watched D'Brick quit after 10 years.
    Maybe he's questioning his own interest in the game (but not the money). Maybe it's just a fixable funk.
    It must be hard to stay enthused when your team sucks and the HC is clueless.

    Maybe it is because he has gone from island to turnstile to felon in 16 months.

  3. Nothing like message board posters from the East Coast proclaiming that there aren't any football fans in the greater Los Angeles area. 
    This is a good move for the Chargers and for the NFL.
    Fact is that the Dodgers, Angels, Lakers, Clippers and USC are hugely popular, and each team draws strong audiences. Chargers and Rams will do the same, once the new stadium is completed. 

    Here is a SoCal resident saying that this move is stupid. No one will care about the Chargers except when the Raiders come in and their fans take the stadium over.So they will play in a soccer stadium that seats 27K. No one cares about the Rans and they have a history in LA. I now hope the Raiders move to SD. That would be a scream.

  4. I love guys who hold the club hostage for the big bucks, get the big bucks then whine about it when their performance declines and they are called on it.  Here is my opinion........if you have to whine about what your legacy should be, it is not going to be what you think it should be.  The easily-visible lack of effort this year has tarnished Revis' legacy.  That was his choice, nobody else's.  I don't begrudge any of these guys any last dollar they can get for themselves.  But don't expect extreme loyalty from the club when you did not exhibit loyalty to anything but your bank account.  If you want more money, take the buyout and get more from someone else.  And when you are not good enough to get more money, take what you can get or move on.
