Appreciate Dan Fouts candor. It's the truth right? I heard parts of that interview on another show today. I understand Spanos is wanting to move on but you can't just dismiss 55 years of football history like it didn't exist. It's disrespectful to do that in my opinion.

Some LA Charger fans don't really mind since they weren't fans as recently as two years ago. This will be a sore topic for the Spanos moving forward if they continue to speak about him in that manner. Be smart just say Charger moving forward.

When Fouts played for the Bolts, the team's most hated rival moved to Los Angeles and won a Super Bowl there. The Rams were also in LA, and were a good team, going to the 1980 Super Bowl. Fouts also was born and raised in San Francisco, which has had a rivalry with Los Angeles for generations. Viewed in context, it's not hard to understand why Fouts doesn't want to be associated with Los Angeles.

I don't think Fouts is taking a shot at LA or the Spanos family so much as he never played in LA. Johnny U didn't want to be known as an Indy Colt either & Fouts looked up to him.

I like the part where you say you're going to give him the benefit of the doubt, and then proceed to not give him the benefit of the doubt.

True. Fouts played, bled and sweated his jersey number 14 his whole career in San Diego. We all watched him on some Sundays literally having blood on his jersey for taking hits/ sacks during a game

At the very least, he liked to be acknowledged as being a Hall of Famer as a San Diego Charger. I respect him for that.
