Up until the Harbaugh hire, virtually every decision made by the Yorks over the last 8 years has been an embarassing, humiliating fiasco. How could anyone not be upset with them? San Diego, as well as a number of others, including me, had no confidence in their decision making ability based on that long history.
I think we are all hopeful that the Baalke/Harbaugh hires represent a turning point. But I can understand why some of us may remain cautious. I can also understand why San Diego looked askance at this recent decision of H. to aoid the Senior Bowl. Although it may be defendable, on the surface it still appeared puzzling.
San Diego's outlook, even though it may be unpopular, is no less a valuable contribution to this forum than those who remain passionate critics of Alex Smith.
Patently false and is revisionist history of the highest order. Say this is an opinion; but prosecuting every move and finding fault with everything isn't where you begin rational discussions about football. If you're working out some over-sensitive psyche with the Yorks, then do so privately. Sounding the (false) alarm on EVERYTHING isn't excused by mistakes the Yorks have made. It only further entrenches opinions other share that you're permanently arguing from an extreme bias. No one party is at fault. We can hash out the history if you like, starting with the fact that Denise didn't WANT the team but only kept it because her brother didn't want to lose it because of his own indiscretion.
