Los Angeles’s Travis Benjamin could have had only a minor miscue on his record if he had stayed where he was on the field after he picked up his own muffed punt, but nah, he had to try and create something better. In doing so, he inexplicably ran backwards almost 10 yards into his own end zone, getting predictably…
Safeties are one of the most exciting plays in football. That might sound weird, since they’re only worth two points, don’t decide games very often, if ever, but they’re fun! Also, the safety is the only play in football where players celebrate by impersonating the referee.
The San Diego Chargers are no more. The team plays its first game since 1960 as the Los Angeles Chargers tonight, and they will be down at least one fan when they step onto the field in Denver: Chargers Twerk Girl.
Former NFL great LaDainian Tomlinson was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame tonight, and he kicked off his time in Canton with a moving speech about his heritage, his family history, and his vision for a future in which the country could come to work towards “the highest ideals of mankind.”
A former security guard who worked Chargers games was caught masturbating near Chargers cheerleaders on the sidelines during a game in December. Both the team and Elite Services, the security company, acknowledged the incident and the guard was fired shortly after.
Chargers owner Dean Spanos held an event in Los Angeles to introduce his team to its new city today. The Chargers, clearly ready to create a unique identity for themselves in their new city, met fans and press at, well, the same venue that the Rams held a similar event in a year ago. However, because the team moved…
The Chargers announced their move to Los Angeles all of three days ago, and they’ve apparently already changed their main logo three times.
The Chargers flipped the switch on their Twitter account a few minutes ago, and now the team is officially known as the Los Angeles Chargers. Along with the new name comes a new logo:
The San Diego Chargers are on the cusp of officially moving to Los Angeles, bringing an end to a years-long breakup process that has understandably left Chargers fans with a bad taste in their mouths. One guy was so fed up that he went down to the Chargers’ building and hucked some dang eggs at it:
The saddest part of this whole thing is that everyone said their goodbyes a year ago. The fans of San Diego gave a raucous, emotional farewell to their NFL team for the last half-century, fully expecting the Chargers to pull up stakes. And then ... they didn’t leave. Like a significant other who dumps you and then …
The next five days are going to prove crucial for the futures of the Chargers and the Raiders, of San Diego and Las Vegas and Los Angeles, and as 18 influential NFL owners gather in New York to figure out who’s going where, the one man who can unilaterally pick up and move his team—Chargers owner Dean Spanos—won’t be…
The video below, a version of which was originally posted to Facebook, appears to show a security guard stationed near the Chargers’ cheerleaders at Sunday’s Raiders-Chargers game masturbating as they perform:
In November, San Diego residents voted against ballot Measure C, which would have provided the San Diego Chargers with $1.15 billion in taxpayer money for the purpose of building a new football stadium. It was the voters’ way of telling Chargers owner Dean Spanos to stop asking for handouts and to finally fuck off to…
San Diego Chargers running back Melvin Gordon was carted off the field after getting injured at the bottom of a pile in the first quarter today against the Carolina Panthers.
San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers did a less-than-stellar job of keeping the ball away from the Miami Dolphins Sunday. A total of three interceptions through the first three-and-a-half-plus quarters... and then one more with hardly one minute left in the fourth quarter of a tied ballgame.
Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has always struck me as a sort of charming goober, so it’s nice to hear five minutes of in-game audio that more or less confirms my assessment.
Bad night last night, right? Real bad. Terrible night. Just the worst.
Remember those anonymous NFL executives who wanted you to believe that Joey Bosa’s rookie season was going to be a wash because he missed training camp and preseason? Remember how the Chargers thought it was a good idea to engage in a long and ugly contract standoff with Bosa over little things like offset language…
