Looks like the Chargers were caught cheating during the draft:

tldr; The final pick of the draft (Chandler Harnish) was pressured into accepting a deal with San Diego before the draft actually ended. That's not legal according to NFL rules. You can't negotiate with players until after the draft period is over.

Good make them forgeit Melvin Ingram. He was not the player I wanted to see go to the bolts. Or any AFCW team.

13 picks before the draft ended. Paging Roger Goddell to the white courtesy phone.

They should lose next years 1st at a minimum.

Lose 5-6th in 2013 and a 100K fine is my guess.

Suspend the franchise indefinitely IMO

They have to offer Rivers up as a sacrifice.

Force fans to go watch the games is a fair punishment IMO.

Hasn't that happened for the last 40 years in the agregate?

I would say the NFL should demand 5 more years of Norv Turner for SD. But the chargers would probably still do that on their own.

I'm guessing the kid was ecstatic to sign with San Diego, seeing that he was drafted so low. He probably didn't know those kind of talks were illegal. His agent, AND the Chargers should have known it...

More or less, the diehard Chugger fans might notice though. All 10 of them will raise quite a stink!

No one wants to be the last one drafted they would rather have a choice of where they have the best chance of making a team.

Goodell should really punish them.

Norv Turner head coach for life!!

Hilarious!

How do you think UDFAs sign so quickly after the draft is over with?

If Goodell wanted this to stop then make it so UDFA can't sign until 2 days after the draft is over or something like that.

Oh, just penalize their 2103 draft by 13 spots in each round. That would deter them in the future.

Probably give every other franchise a shot at signing him

I thought Chandler Harnish was a chic and it was a joke pick.

Don't be obtuse. You have to know what the guy was talking about. If you don't then you either haven't been paying attention, or there's no hope for you.

Forced relocation to T.J. and loss of 2013 and 2014 1st round picks sounds about right.

That would punish everyone - have you seen San Diego's cheerleaders?

This is akin to Crisco and Diving at knees.

I hope they get the death penalty.

I spend a fair bit of time in SD and there are some very beautiful women there.

The bigger question is have you seen your cheerleaders?

Give Norv the Sean Peyton treatment. Or better yet, the Greg Williams treatment. ;)

I was thinking it would be a bigger penalty if they had to keep Norv for life.

...for three straight years. Also, they can't fire Norv for at least 5 more glorious seasons. I think that might be acceptable.

Don't worry. In this case John would be trying to eff it up, so it might go ok. :)
