My friend's friend decided to not renew his season tickets because of this. 

Thoughts?

Wow really?! 

I asked DH why they (Chargers) offered them what they did and he said it's all business.  And he asked me why I thought they offered what they did.. and it didn't really dawn on me until he asked. 

They couldn't take a risk on his shoulder injury, which I can understand, but then faith would have been better.  But then again, it's all business.

DH made a comment that "What if the Saints went all the way to the Superbowl?"  Oh my!  Then we'd be really sorry!!

DH and I are huge Charger fans, but they always seem to get rid of good
players. We both really like Drew Brees and think he's a great
quarterback. We were really hoping that they would have faith and
confidence that he would make a full recovery from his surgery. We just
think the management isn't very good, and that Marty doesn't always
make the right call during the games. We met Drew and his wife at a
charity function a few years ago. They couldn't have been any nicer! I
hope that he does really well with the Saints! I understand that they are
running a business, but why get rid of a good thing? We'll see if Rivers
has what it takes when the season starts.

I like Drew, but I don't want the Saints to win the superbowl! haha
Go Chargers!

I think A.J. Smith is too self centered and full of himself.  He is the one that wanted Rivers and helped get him that huge deal and I think he wants him to play so he can show everyone he was "right" and Rivers is a great player.  That's all fine and dandy, and hopefully he's right and Rivers is fantastic. 

But that doesn't mean you get rid of an already proven quarterback.  If Rivers really is as great as Smith thinks, then we would still need him as a backup if Brees didn't fully recover or got injured again.

Ack, it all boils down to the fact that the Chargers have poor ownership and management.   All that said, I hope Rivers blows everyone out of the water.  GO CHARGERS!

If AJ is wrong, they also better be prepared to cut his ass loose. He's really putting his rep on the line over a pissing match/power struggle, IMHO, but whatever. We're used to it as Charger fans, right - having a good player and in this case QB for 2-3 years then adios. It's the cycle we've come to "accept" since the end of Fouts' era really.

However, the fact this all comes down the way in a year that supposedly they want fan support for a new stadium, well, that I still do not get. I mean cutting a fan-fave player loose in a year they want fans to support the team for a stadium? Um, basically wha? But along with management, PR has sucked for a long time as well, and this is just icing on the cake truth be told.

My husband has left voicemail for AJ Smith voicing his opinion on this matter. We are in the process of getting our money for season tickets back. It is just too much money to spend on a team that might not be enjoyable to watch. I suppose that is the chance you take any year with ST's but not one we were willing to make this year. I'm very sad about Brees.
Happily married since 6/5/04. . .

WOW!!  I was just going to ask about that.  I sent our renewal for our season tickets this week.  I am a bit leary about the Chargers season this Fall, but I still plan to be there at every game.  I have been supporting them before they went to the Superbowl, even when they let Seau go to Miami, but also when they were worse off before so this won't stop me from going now.

Plus, how can we deny Tomlinson or Gates and maybe even Rivers the benefit of the doubt?  This just may be a blessing in disguise.
