But the mods should try and refrain from personal comments...or maybe take off your mod hat and invent a new character to post by. Many of you are very reasonable in other threads but things have gone off the rails in this one.
FWIW, I always supported Smith. Stop trying to lump people into divisive groups.
This. I support smith and have been accused of being a pro-smith mod. The whole point started from people saying guys were wrong for wanting the pick and not caring about the chiefs success. There is always two sides to every argument. Some people just can't see that.
The point that people forget is that not all humans remain attached to people, stories, etc. for some, when Alex left they detached their-self from the story. So the pick is more important. (Would you take a 57th or a 69th?) for some, they root for the chiefs to lose because of Alex, and use the pick as a crutch. (That's a sad life). For others, they generally don't see a problem with a later pick given the enjoyment of the chiefs and Alex's success. For some, they are so conflicted with the way the QB change was handled, they are taking it out on the niners and Kap. (Most won't admit that.)
I lie in the middle. I want Alex to have a great year, which I believe it is, regardless of what some think. I also want to preserve the best pick because I know we need it. (Paying big players, FAs, etc). If the pick was not attached and the niners didnt win the Super Bowl, I would absolutely cheer for Alex to win it. He was a class act.
