Once is an Accident, Twice is a Coincidence, Three Times is a Pattern,
Then there's Aldon Smith's crime spree where screwing up three times isn't a pattern. It's Friday.
I think we've long passed the point of diminishing returns on this dude. The 49ers have become the new Raiders of the NFL with all the criminality and stupidity and Smith is Public Enemy #1. Even if he somehow holds on to his place on this team (and by now it should be by the thinnest of threads), how long is the suspension going to be coming from Roger Goodell's office? The commissioner was probably already ticked off by the poor box office performance of Draft Day
and when he heard what spectacularly stupid thing Smith had done this
time he had to thinking, "Geez, not THIS guy again?"
I hate the idea of Aldon Smith in a Seattle Seahawk uniform terrorizing the 49ers two or more times a season, but I'm beginning to hate the idea of Aldon Smith in a 49ers uniform at all.
Sometimes you have to cut out a cancer before it can spread and kill the entire body and that may mean cutting loose some body parts you're pretty fond of. If you're Jed York and what we can laughingly call the 49ers "brain trust" you have GOT
to be thinking of trading Smith for a low draft choice and a empty six-pack of beer to be name later and cut your losses because it is obvious he does not get it. He never will get it and he doesn't even seem to want to get it.
Give a guy enough chances to show what he's really like and eventually he will. Aldon Smith has shown he is immature, has no self-control, is probably an alcoholic, and has become so much trouble off the field that whatever he does contribute on the field isn't worth the hassle of waiting for his next meltdown.
The 49ers should trade Aldon Smith if they can. Or cut him if they can't. No more chances. It's time to say "bye-bye" to this ongoing human migraine. Who needs this crap?
I want my 49ers back and getting them back means Aldon Smith's gotta GO!
