But the last CBA put in new rules for rookie contracts to specifically avoid this kind of BS. There are very few negotiable items, and the Chargers have decided that they want all of those items in their favor. With any other NFL franchise, Bosa would have been signed weeks ago. But Spanos, et al. instead are probably going to lose their #3 pick and Bosa's going to miss out on a year of playing.

Correct. He has until Wk 10 to sign if he wants to see the field this season. But if he doesn't sign by week 10, I put the odds of him ever signing with SD at 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 to 1 (approximately).

I haven't  looked recently, nor did I do exhaustive research, but I checked out the Chargers page at SBNation a few weeks ago and it appeared to me that the fans were predominantly on Joey's side. The Chargers' narrative aside, most people who see the facts surrounding the Chargers' offer vs. those of the other teams who signed top-3 picks over the past few years acknowledge that the team are screwing with Bosa.

I'll admit -- several weeks ago, before I read about why he hadn't signed yet, I too blamed Joey for not signing. But it's quite clear after reading up on it that Joey is getting screwed with by the Chargers front office. I'd hate to see him have to go back into the draft because I doubt he'd go #3 again, but SD is a shit organization. 

So, if Joey had to be redrafted, where does everyone think he'd go? I'd be surprised if he were a top 5 pick again (just b/c no one will have seen him on the field for over a year, even if he does well at the combine).

7/10, while I agree Baylor had (likely still has) wide-ranging, systemic problems that were highlighted by the recent scandals, Briles was right there in it and, at best, he did nothing -- and at worst, was part of the cover-up and victim intimidation. I myself am ready and wiling to burn Briles to the ground (metaphorically, of course). Not only was he part of the problem, but he has shown no remorse for his part. He acts like nothing happened, that he did nothing wrong.

Damn, that would be an effective way to get your kid to buckle up. I'll have to remember that for when my kids are older.
