I don't give a crap about the Chiefs. I want them to win ONlY 8 so that it maximizes anything the Niners can get. Let us care more about other teams and trade good talent for weaker compensation or give away a couple of spots in the draft. Hell no.
What I don't understand are folks who want to root for another team knowing that it will weaken our draft status.
Oh noez! The 49ers would have to pick like 12 picks later!!! Whatever would they do if they really like someone, but don't want to use one of their dozen high picks to move up and get him?
C'mon, fellas... it is truly nobody else's business which or however many teams a fan likes. You do not get to dictate such things to others. WE are all 49ers fans.. and it is disgusting that some of you want to pull the "superior fan card" in times like this. I feel like others here, that KC is an intriguing story reminiscent of what SF did in 2011. I like this story, and would not begrudge KC's success just so that SF can move up a dozen spots with an extra 2nd rd pick. I have been through enough drafts to appreciate the flexibility in teams getting who they want.. one way or another.. and it's usually not a prospect I wanted them to get anyway.
Stick a cork in this... we all know what's really going on... and some are not hoping KC's success stops due to a dozen draft pick difference. They hope KC falls on their face because they hate... have always hated KC's quarterback.. and the more success he has? The angrier and more self-conscious they get.
