For Chargers fans: I registered here tonight and I've seen more idiot Charger fans than I cared to thought were even out there. If you're here to simply talk the team up and say "Chargers rule, you suck" then save us all the trouble and just SHUT UP! Yeah, we've had some great moments in the last few years but there's no use in denying it - three recent championships means we have nothing on the Patriots. Be respectful, talk football, but don't cross the line of just being insensitive. BELIEVE ME, I live in PA, which means i'm subjected to the typical "Philadelphia fan" on a daily basis. That's not the way we want to represent ourselves. For Patriot fans: Naturally, I'm sure us Charger fans are going to be hearing a lot more steroids-references than we'll care to over the next week, and the "Well, he's only good because of roids" comments are getting old already. There's more to the situation than most people know and this fact, I believe, is extremely important. Merriman's failed test was during the SUMMER (sorry to use such broad terms, I'm not sure the exact date - but it was the off-season) and, since then, has passed each of the increased number of tests that the league has mandated he's taken. While I, like most Charger fans, are skeptical of the original positive test (hey, what can you expect from us? ), even if he WAS taking steroids, his play this season has been clean. Also remember, Julius Peppers failed a substance test in his rookie year and hardly anyone ever remembers that. I'm not excusing Shawne for failing the test, no matter what the circumstances (I was as dissapointed the morning I woke up and found out as anybody), I'm just saying that crucifying him on this, without the proper information, is narrowminded as well. That all being said, I truly hope the Charger fans that are undoubtably going to come onto this board in the next week can come in with respect and we can get some good, intelligent debates going on!
