The Stubhub Center, the Chargers’ home for three seasons, seats 27,000 fans, fewest in the league.
From 1961 to 1966, the San Diego Chargers played at Balboa Stadium, a relic built in 1914 that had a seating capacity of 34,000 for football. The now-Los Angeles Chargers will play for the next three seasons in a stadium even smaller in an era of 80,000-seat megaplexes.
Some people wonder if he’s pulling a LeGarrette Blount, forcing his team to cut him with designs on returning to his former team and a legitimate shot at a Super Bowl. Before the suspension, Gase mentioned he doesn’t know what the future holds for Timmons in Miami. He did say that his team is moving on with or without him. To me, it sounds like they are trying to move on without him
It would be hard simply to cut Timmons. He’s a salary cap hit of $11M and the Dolphins are still anorexically thin with healthy linebackers even with the addition of Anthony. Trading him is tough, because nobody is going to want to or be able to afford that cap it at this time. Plus, his Dolphins teammates have been very supportive of him during this ordeal.
They rightfully suspended Timmons and even though Dolphin players are speaking highly of him, he’s probably going to lose his job. I’ve ticked off my bosses before and when they want you gone, you’re going to end up gone. Gase also doesn’t want to lose control of his team, so he’s probably going to send a message and punish Timmons further because of his insubordination.
