DISCLAIMER: The credibility behind this is about the same as me saying unicorns exist.
Anyway, this rumor, that was posted on a message board by an “apparently disgruntled ex-NFL employee,” was sent to me last evening. There is no chance this is true, but nonetheless it gave me quite a good laugh. And hey, if you believe in this kind of thing, you have to like the Chargers chances. Happy Tuesday Bolts nation. I hope this makes you smile in preparation for Sunday’s big game.
Inappropriate language blacked out
It is interesting this was posted December 23, before the improbable week 17 for the Bolts, and before the Wild Card victory. However, my guess is that an angry Raiders fan was trying to stir up some controversy. Football is impossible to script; that’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it. Anyway, thanks for the laugh and see you in the Super Bowl Seattle!

This guy offers up zero in the actual evidence department. It's fiction.
On a related note: Man files motion that Chargers aren't playoff-worthy
Daniel L. Spuck is agitated.
The Pennsylvania man has filed a motion against the NFL to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania for "a temporary emergency injunction" on the playoffs based on his belief that the San Diego Chargers don't belong there, per The Baltimore Sun.
Spuck is fumed over a controversial missed call in San Diego's Week 17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Officials in that game failed to call the Chargers for an illegal formation by the defense on a 41-yard missed field goal attempt by K.C. with eight seconds remaining. Had the call been made, Chiefs kicker Ryan Succop would have lined up for a 36-yard attempt.
Instead, the Bolts moved on, bumping the Pittsburgh Steelers from the playoff chase.
Spuck filed the motion before the postseason, with instructions for the league to "suspend the playoffs for a week to 10 days, allow Succop to re-kick the field goal, or let the Steelers play the Chargers at a neutral site to determine who plays on," according to The Sun.
Charming sidenote: Online court records reveal that Spuck's motion was submitted through inmate mail from the Pennsylvania corrections department.
A voice from wilderness, utterly tangled in red tape as the playoffs march on.

well, that would've gone some way towards explaining the way baltimore and miami finished the season.
the number of people it would've needed to be complicit in making this happen is staggering.
