LT was rolling through all of his “thank yous” during his news conference on Wednesday in S.D... to the fans, to the community, to veterans like Junior Seau and Rodney Harrison who guided him as a rookie, and to all the coaches, trainers, and, most importantly, his family. 

 After about 4 minutes, an emotional L.T. couldn’t hold back the tears.

“It’s funny because I was all prepared, said I wasn’t going to do this,” said Tomlinson, wiping tears from his eyes. “Sometimes emotions is what makes a person. And as you guys know, I’ve always worn my emotions on my sleeve.”

Tomlinson was emphatic when he expressed his concern to remain a part of the San Diego Community still, but just not as a football player.  The guy has meant so much to the kids around here. He owns businesses in San Diego and owns a home in Poway, California. 

 Ladainian also re-iterated several times that he is still very hungry for a Championship. He also made a point to be honest telling fans and media that his #'s have gone down considerably since Marty Schottenheimer was fired, and that he definitely would never play for the Raiders.
