Report: Ex-San Diego Charger Shane Olivea ‘Partied Himself Out of the League’
by November 30, 1999 @ 12:00 am (Category : Blogs )

Jun 21st 2008 6:27AM by Michael David Smith (author feed)
Filed under: Chargers, San DiegoFormer Chargers offensive tackle Shane Olivea, a free agent who once looked like one of the league’s most promising offensive linemen, is currently without a team. Even if he signs with a team, he can’t play until he serves a four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.

And although the league doesn’t give specifics about past indiscretions, it’s clear that whatever triggered this four-game suspension isn’t the first time Olivea screwed up. Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports:

All the Chargers would say when they released him in February was that Olivea had seemed to lose his motivation. But those around the team have known for some time that Olivea partied himself out of the league.
Acee also reports that Olivea is getting help. I hope it works. Olivea is only 26 years old and still has talent, even if, so far, that talent has gone to waste.Continue Reading

Former NFL Linebacker Steve Foley Indicted After Pit Bulls Attack Woman, Puppy

Filed under: Chargers, Texans, NFL Fans, NFL Police BlotterPrior to his most recent legal troubles, Steve Foley was best known for taking three bullets from an off-duty police officer during a bizarre altercation in Sept. 2006.

Yesterday, the reported that Foley, out of football since the shooting, was “indicted on a charge of attack by a dog” after his two pit bulls attacked a woman and her puppy. Foley’s lawyer called the incident an accident, sorta like that time Joey Porter’s dogs inadvertently ate a small horse. The indictment, a third-degree felony, was unsealed Wednesday. Foley is accused of failing to secure the dogs, which made an unprovoked attack on a neighbor on the afternoon of March 26, according to court documents. The neighbor, Twana Schulz, suffered serious bodily injury when she was bitten on the arms and face, the indictment said. Foley’s dogs have since been “seized and destroyed” (in “shock and awe fashion”, no doubt, to send a message to the other would-be doggie offenders). Joking aside, it sounds like harrowing experience; Schulz’s puppy was killed in the attack. If Foley is convicted, he could serve up to 10 years in the joint.

Responsible pit bull owners everywhere would like to take this opportunity to thank Foley for his negligence.

Shawne Merriman’s Offseason Workout Includes Wrestling Half-Naked Men

I haven’t watched professional wrestling since the sixth grade, so I’ve missed out on all the truly must-see events featuring those athletes from the non-fake sports. Like these two clowns, or this guy, for example.

And while this seems like the perfect vehicle for Jason Taylor to transition from the NFL to Hollywood (hey, it worked for Dwayne!), he’s a serious actor who would never betray the craft in such a vile manner.

Shawne Merriman feels differently, it seems. The Chargers linebacker was ringside at a recent WWE event (the best of the year, apparently), specifically, a Singapore cane match, and awesomeness ensued: As expected, [The Big] Show dominates right from the get-go. Show misses an elbow on [Tommy] Dreamer and then all four grab canes from high atop the corner poles and work over Show before then going after one another. This match still doesn’t seem right without The Sandman. Dreamer hits a pumphandle suplex on [John] Morrison with the cane in a nice spot. [CM] Punk and Chavo [Guerrero] go to the floor and Chavo blasts Merriman with the cane. Merriman then gets Punk’s weapon and clocks Chavo. No lights-out dance? What a fraud. Actually, it sounds pretty benign, although Norvell Turner might disagree.

But yeah, I couldn’t agree more: no Sandman = no fun.
