Just because I think a player who has been awful for 6 years will be awful in his 7th, that means I want the team to fail?
No, but when your desire to see a player, and thus likely the team, fail simply so that you can crow about how you "told you so" exceeds your desire to see the team succeed regardless of who is under center, that speaks volumes.
Which is more important to you? Team success with Smith or team failure so that you can be "right"?
I'll just fall in line with the rest and bash Sing, Carr, Troy Smith, Crabtree, Rachal, etc...because fans who bash those guys and call them busts *cough* are hoping for team failure just so they can say "I told you so".
The golden boy is untouchable.
Just so we're clear...if Alex leads this team to a Super Bowl, I'll be elated...and I hope...for everyone's sake that he gets it together this year. I just think he won't. What makes my opinion less valid than yours?
Wow. You tend to overreact and go to extremes when you post. A side effect is the creation of strawmen arguments (see prior discussions). The "but they did it, too!!" argument also doesn't work.
I just asked a question. You have given an answer...sort of.
Your opinion is perfectly valid. I just happen to disagree with the factual premises underlying it and, often, the manner in which you express it.
Whatever dude. You're the guy who came up with the dumb notion that I would rather see the team lose with Alex than win with him just so I could stroke my own ego. How you pulled that out of my post was David Blane-esque.
Alex has been below average for 6 years of his career. Odds are he will be below average next year. If that makes me less of a fan then so be it...
I brought up Sing, Crabs, etc...because it seems to be acceptable to bash them...but not the golden boy.
