well if I had to guess, based on your age (early 30s), being from Louisiana, your hometown saints were horrible when you were a kid so you went with the cool story. The 49ers, Joe, Steve, Jerry etc. That worked well for you until Alex was "disrespected", so you found yourself in another situation (to use your words) chose what team to be a fan of. Thats the chiefs. And for the record, I would respect you more if you admitted it. If you dont, cool. Enjoy the board.
First of all, YOUR respect is not on my list of interests in the slightest. I am now 39 years old.
Otherwise, I had always disliked the thuggish nature of the Saints... hated the idiot NOLA fans.. and was always someone who would not allow geography to force my choices. As the Saints were in the NFCW then, I watched all of the SF/NO battles and easily found myself really liking their brand of football and their players. So that was that... I made my own choice and never looked back. I still.. have never looked back. I still watch every SF game with raised heartbeat. I still want SF to win every game and I still love nearly every player on the team. I have always been a fan of football, and have always had interest in other teams. If people recall, I had a brief interest in Detroit, until they became thuggish. I also did start to like what the Saints were building, but lost any true interest with the Greg Williams days.
So do tell me... if I watch all the SF games with excitement... still want them to win... and still have only SF jerseys, blankets, etc.. still love the players.. how does this now make me a Chiefs fan that has jumped ship? And how is this appropriate for a mod to publicly accuse me of this, when you don't really know me?
I now am a 49ers fan that has taken a big interest in the Chiefs and what they are building. And no... I don't need your respect or approval in that.
What more honesty now would you like, since you are so heavily invested in chatting with me?
