How many games will the Chiefs win PYMWYMI

How many games will the Chiefs win PYMWYMI

I'll root for former players to do well, i.e. alex, goldson etc...but I can only find my self to root for one team.

I had a coworker who was a Cowboy and Patriot fan and it just really bugged me. There's something about that which says they are more of a casual fan, but oh well.

I don't at all think 'casual fan' is the appropriate conclusion. The following is just to try and help you understand.. as you say yourself, it bugs you.

There are very few things in life that I am fanatical about... and one of them is football. So I focus on the Xs and Os and soak in as much as I can get from football.

There is, however, a priority to be applied. General love of the game comes first... then 49ers football... then preferences to other teams around the league. For instance, if the Vikings are playing against the Browns.. I will easily not enjoy this game as much as a 49ers game.. but I will watch and enjoy it because (1) it's football.. and (2) I personally like the Vikings and what they are building more so than what the Browns are. ( as long as there are no clear playoff implications affecting SF )

IF the 49ers lose games, I am in a very bad mood and it carries over throughout my week. If the Chiefs lose games, I will be disappointed, but it's not a big deal. If (in that example) the Vikes lost to the Browns, meh, don't really care.

Not so long ago, I had the Saints as my "# 2" team (hometeam)... but I have really soured on them in recent times. Not long ago, I started vetting the Lions to be that "# 2" team... but the many arrests and my quick hate of their HC pretty well pizzed that away.

I'm saying all of this to you... well, because I am bored for one.. but also to give you and others a better idea of how I and maybe others roll with this. Not at all demanding that you like or understand it.

1. FOOTBALL
2. 49ers

















3. Chiefs
There's nothing wrong with liking the game of football and being a fan of the Niners. I was a Niners fan in the since the 80's. But I also started to follow the budding offense of the Bills with Kelly, Thurman Thomas, Reed. Nice to watch good offensive football when they became a total buzz saw in the NFL. I watched these teams because I appreciated some aspect or part of that team. Doesn't mean that I'm a fan of that team to the degree that I'm a Niners.

That's like saying I'm a Niners fan, so I won't watch the KC vs. Denver on MNF with Elways and Montana. Holy s**t! You've missed a helluva game
Bottom line is: I have my faithful and delicious wife (SF) for many years... and now I have a mistress (KC) that I can also fornicate with, but not throw heavy commitment into.

Well, I'll be sure and let you know if I add another or different mistress... since you are so very interested.

Like McGib, I also watch a lot of football. I love the Xs and Os and tearing part what teams are doing, or not doing, to be successful (or fail). So, I watch the 49ers and then watch as many other games as I can during the weekend and week. Having been a 49er fan for four decades, I have no other team that attracts me like they do. Even during the Donahue years I still went to the 'stick every game.

In the meantime, I have always had a couple other teams that drew my interest. My father and a lot of his family, grew up in Wisconsin so the Packers have always been one of those teams. Most of the time it was geography but sometimes it was just the excitement of wondering what crazy stunt Favre was going to pull off next. Now, it is because Aaron Rodgers and his Nor Cal connection, interests me, along with the fact I like him as a person. He is a good guy. Given a choice, I will still watch the Packers as opposed to any other game (49ers excepted) because I love the way the offense plays and think Mike McCarthy is one of the best play callers in the league. Not perfect, but very good. I don't see anyone better. I can learn from watching them play.

Having lived in Colorado for three years, I watched the Broncos during the early Elway years. Fun. Now, I could care less but their defensive line play and Manning are interesting.

Back in earlier times I followed the Browns because I like Bernie Kozar. UGH. Hard to think of that now, but he was an "efficient" QB that made his team better.

After Justin Smiley (another guy I liked) went to Miami, I followed them when I could. Same went for other ex-49ers on other teams. It was interesting to me to see how they did other places. It gave me a yardstick with which to compare the 49ers.

All the while, my cash and my first allegiance was to the 49ers. Never wavered, even in the lean years. Even though Erickson disgusted me, I was there.

Now, Alex Smith, another guy I like, is in KC. This situation has far more on the line for me, and, I believe it should for others as well, because of the draft implications. However, more than that, I like the team that KC has around him on offense. The defense is vastly under-rated. I believe it will be an exciting team to watch as Smith has a very good season. I believe the fan letter linked above is right on. That team is a cinch to win 9+ games if no major injuries to key players like Bowe or Charles. As the off-season has progressed, even some of the more pessimistic KC fans are warming up to him and allowing themselves some hope they have not had for decades.

It's gonna be a good year ahead.
As some of you may know, I was a Raider's fan first and a 9er's fan 2nd. I liked both teams growing up. They were BOTH the home team. When the Raiders went to LA it was just about the 9ers and has been ever since. Having played the game for a bit in high school, My interest goes beyond the team but to the X & Os. In addition, the introduction of the salary cap has made players more likely to go from team to team. Back in the day, if you rooted for a player, odds are he was with that team for his career. I understand why a lot of people don't root for players now..but I've been watching long enough that I still feel loyalty to players I like.

When Montana left the 9ers I certainly rooted for KC when they weren't playing the 9ers. BTW, just for reference you should look up how many people cheered for Montana when he played against the 9ers. I rooted for Jerry when he went to the Raiders..and that was hard to do because I really don't like the raiders. I could list a number of other players like Lott & Craig who also went over to the Raiders..So by the same token, I find no issue at all in rooting for KC again now that Alex is there.

In your analogy, you are disrespecting your wife to say the very least.

Maybe she should consider herself lucky that I keep her around at all then... ... either way, my allegiances are none of your or 49's business. Keep it about football and not other posters. Isn't that the forum theme?

YOU are the one discussing your allegiances. I only pointed something out about the analogy you made.
