Disagree quite strongly.

Gaither has lost the confidence of his teammates, the old staff all got fired with him as a contributing factor, and the fans are ready to tar and feather the guy and run him out of town.

He'll be cut as soon as possible, and I have sincere doubts that he'll ever play for another team.

I hope he invests his money well, because the gravy train has been derailed.

I agree. Except we probably can't "run" him out of town. Walk? Tow?

According to Acee the base salary isn't guaranteed despite all the reports saying that is was when he signed originally.

wont cost the chargers a dime to cut him, teams get 120 million from TV revenues... so just absorb this unfortunate situation.

as for the cap, yeah that will happen, but as I said, who cares?

there are bums on every team, every year.

desperate times mean desperate decisions, this was one of them, and it will be behind us come March 12.

The ownership will NOT saddle the new regime with this kind of crap, it was Norv and AJ's follie.

Hasta La Vista Gaither...

He'll be back, and play well.

HOWEVER, Telesco will have to draft a very capable backup LT very early in this draft. Mike Harris played OK, but he should be a RT or RG.
Go back and read the rest of the thread. There is a post here that explains the 13.5m "guarantee". In short, if they cut him before the season starts he is only guaranteed 9m.
