With respect. I don't think you need to lock the thread. The problem seems to be :
The people that either dislike Alex/Chiefs +/or simply don't want to read about them? They are incapable of resisting the urge to click on this thread and then recycle their negative assessments with posts. We know the purpose for them doing so is nothing short of antagonistic. Perhaps some even seem threatened about other SF fans talking about another team. (as if they should really care?) Perhaps they just want to force a nasty situation where you will lock up the thread?
Maybe the best move would be to passively warn them to either stay out or contribute something useful to the thread. Further failing to do that results in street cred or a sit facing the corner. I actually try to post KC related articles that people interested can read here. There's no use for me to reiterate how I think Alex and KC will do this season... just as there is no use in the same people popping in to reiterate the negativity.
Crowd control or you may as well just lock it up.
Just a suggestion... it's your show, obviously.
