Disclaimer: I’m a Wisconsin Badgers die-hard fan and Melvin Gordon is one of my favorite players to ever lace them up.
Additional Disclaimer: The Chargers are my favorite non-Green Bay Packers football team.
Apparently, the Chargers are blind and have not seen what Melvin Gordon has done since arriving in San Diego 4 years ago and have not committed to paying that man whatever the hell he wants.
More on Los Angeles running back Melvin Gordon informing the Chargers that unless he receives a new contract, he will not report to training camp and will demand a trade:https://t.co/EakhJBGHScAdvertisement

Do you remember who the running back was for the Bolts before Gordon? Do you really? Because it wasn’t LaDainian Tomlinson!
There was a painful, gruesome 5 seasons between LT and Gordon. The leading rushers were Brandon Oliver, Ryan Matthews and back-up nose tackle Mike Tolbert!
You might be asking yourself, “Who the hell are those guys?” and that’s the right response. They’re a bunch of mediocre, running back-by-committee guys that the Chargers used as feature backs during a stretch where they made the playoffs once and never exceeded 10 wins.
Melvin Gordon is arguably a Top-5 running back and has potential to compete for an MVP. The Chargers have the chance to secure their future; which will not have Philip Rivers that much longer, and they’re dragging their feet.
If they let Gordon walk, the NFL should make them play the next 5 seasons in that shithole Oakland! Because that’s where dumpsters go to get lit on fire, Oakland.
Do the right thing Chargers- pay your franchise running back what he’s worth!
Enjoy the greatest rushing performance of all time:
