Really, it is win-win. Root for the Chiefs, hey they won, cool. They lose, we still got that 2nd round pick, awesome!
There's all sorts of win-win scenarios when you decide to root for more than one team. That doesn't change the fact that rooting for the Chiefs to win is the exact same thing as rooting for the Niners to get worse 2nd round draft position, from the perspective of a Niner fan.
What happens will happen regardless.
There is no real connection at all. No impact to the play on the field.
There is NO EXPENSE to the 49ers at all.
This whole notion that rooting for something/someone somehow harms the team is bunk.
It is only the latest crap parotted by those who enjoy being irritating.
With Smith on the Chiefs, more football became relevant for me.
Now I have the 49ers, and a casual interest in the Chiefs. More football relevant to me = more enjoyment in the football season.
Simple as that. My love for the 49ers is in no way diminished.
