    I obtained a ruling from Judge Judy, and the gist of it was that the Chargers aren’t a real football organization, sort of like Cantwell. I remain glad to be of service in this most serious matter.

    @ Tim: Perhaps he meant high school football. Or, maybe he thought the Chargers are a soccer club (futbol, as opposed to American football).

    Tucked away in the 24,000 pages of the Obamacare bill is a little-known regulation which requires at least ONE item of each TEN to be football related. Authorities have agreed to let my use of the word FOOTBALL in this comment substitute for the required item, but MVS must be diligent in obeying this edict going forward.
    From T. Peterson: Actually there was one. #5- Geno Smith signed with the Chargers.
